The Secret World of Gold is a documentary exploring the power and politics of gold, a precious metal with more allure and fascination than any other. In recent years, economic uncertainty is giving gold a new lustre in the world of high finance. Some claim that much of the gold held by the Bank of Canada, the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve and Fort Knox is gone — that for every 100 ounces of gold traded, there exists only one ounce of real, physical gold.

A vast treasure trove of gold coins, jewels and  precious stones unearthed at a lightly guarded Hindu temple in India was expected to grow further in value Monday as the last two secret vaults sealed for nearly 150 years are opened. The government has increased security since the treasure's discovery in recent days, which has instantly turned the 16th-century Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple into one of the wealthiest religious institutions in the country. Four vaults recently opened at the temple in Trivandrum, the capital of the southern state of Kerala, held a vast bounty that unofficial estimates peg at $22 billion US. The treasures unearthed so far include statues of gods and goddesses made of solid gold and studded with diamonds, rubies, emeralds and other precious stones, crowns and necklaces, all given as gifts to the temple over the centuries. The volume of gold and silver coins was so enormous that the investigators weighed the coins by the sackful, rather than counting them, officials said. The temple, built by the maharajas who ruled the then-kingdom of Travancore, remained under the control of the erstwhile royal family after India's independence in 1947. India's Supreme Court ordered the inspection of the vaults after a lawyer petitioned a local court asking the state government to take over the temple, citing inadequate security. Before the trove was uncovered, there was almost no visible security at the temple, save for a few local security guards patrolling the complex with batons, mainly for crowd control. Kerala's police chief, Jacob Punnoose, said he sent extra police officers to guard the temple and is planning a high-tech security system to protect the treasure. The security plans include the installation of digital electronic networks, closed circuit cameras and metal detectors at the entrance and exits of the temple.

Manoj Abraham, city police commissioner, said two battalions of special armed police would provide security outside the temple complex. Every year, devout Hindus donate millions of rupees worth of cash, gold and silver to temples. Vellappally Nateshan, a Hindu leader, said the wealth should remain with the temple authorities.
Some social activists in Kerala have demanded the treasure be handed to a national trust to help the poor. Kerala's top elected official, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, however, assured the people that the wealth would remain with the temple. Chandy said the government would bear the cost of stepping up security at the temple and ensure that worshippers were not inconvenienced.

Police in Norway are investigating the theft of some of the Ghanaian Ashanti crown jewels from a hotel in Oslo. The jewels were travelling with King Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the ruler of the Ashanti, who is representing Ghana at a conference in the Norwegian capital. A suitcase belonging to the African royalty was snatched from the lobby of the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel by some Caucasian men.
The jewels, amassed over generations and considered to be priceless, are used by the king when he performs ceremonial duties. Police claim they have good surveillance video recording of the snatching event and are on the track of the thieves.

But it will be too far away to be repaired, so everything has to go right, Bob McDonald writes.
In the first months of the Second World War, the gold of England and France was secretly shipped to vaults in Montreal, Ottawa and New York. Odyssey Marine, an American company listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange, spends huge amounts of money to search for that gold.
