Saudi Oil and GOLD

Post  Country on Tue Dec 22, 2009 3:52 pm

GOLD is in imbued in Saudi Arabian culture. Before 1947, the Saudi government would not accept paper currency. An interesting link between Saudi Oil and GOLD are the 1945 Aramco disc GOLD coins. Here's a short history.

I find the later Saudi 1950 GOLD coins, that were minted with the same specifications as English sovereign gold, very neat. I have some of these in my collection.
