First Gold Bond in the US in 87 Years Matures

Scottsdale, Ariz – September 23, 2021 – Monetary Metals ( is pleased to announce that the first gold bond issued in the United States in 87 years has matured.

Monetary Metals announced the first gold bond in January 2021. Investors in the gold bond included high net worth individuals, Registered Investment Advisors (RIA’s), family offices and institutions.

“Monetary Metals performed extensive due diligence on the borrower, and closely monitored the performance of the bond. And it paid off. My clients and I were able to obtain exposure to gold, and an attractive yield. That’s a win-win in today’s investment environment. I’m very pleased with the results,” said Greyson Geiler, Principal of Andorra Capital LLC, a Scottsdale, Ariz. based RIA.

Weiner added, “The success of the bond proves that gold can be used to finance productive businesses. This isn’t a theory anymore. It’s history, and it’s the future of the gold standard. Earning interest on gold, paid in gold, is a compelling and much needed alternative to the zero-interest rate policy and currency debasement we see today.”

The borrower is Shine Resources, ( an Australian-based gold-mining company founded in 2014. The bond was used to finance  Shine’s Chameleon gold mine, located in Kalgoorlie, a gold mining region in Western Australia.

Monetary Metals has several more gold bonds under development.
