Germans say their gold is in safe hands of US Federal Reserve
From a 11/1/12 speech in NYC by a member of the Executive Board of the Bundesbank:
Throughout these sixty years, we have never encountered the slightest problem, let alone had any doubts concerning the credibility of the Fed. The Bundesbank will remain the Fed's trusted partner in future, and we will continue to take advantage of the Fed's services by storing some of our currency reserves as gold in New York.
At the same time, you can be assured that we are confident that our gold is in safe hands with you. The days in which Hollywood Germans such as Gerd Fröbe, better known as Goldfinger, and East German terrorist Simon Gruber, masterminded gold heists in US vaults are long gone. Nobody can seriously imagine scenarios like these, which are reminiscent of a James Bond movie with Goldfinger playing the role of a US Fed accounting clerk.
