While gold may be primarily a long term store of value, more people would be able to save more money in it if they were able to access in relatively short notice for a personal or community-wide emergency. For quite some time Goldmoney has only been offering its debit card services to clients located in the EU. While this may change in the future, one possible workaround is to use TransferWise for relatively quick and low cost access:
- Sign up to Goldmoney and buy some gold.
- Setup TransferWise and add it as a bank account to your Goldmoney holding.
- Request your TransferWise debit card, and sell gold and withdraw when needed.
