Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Also it seems, based on cursory investigation, that it's not illegal to sell "counterfeit" gold. It's a commodity, not government-issued currency.

I would not be counterfeinting, but surely there are laws in most countries against selling a commodity while claiming it is another?

Sure, but you can buy "copper" at the hardware store. What is the purity, the alloy details, etc?

The gold bug thing has fraud written all over it...

The only way I can think of it wouldn't be illegal would be by selling bars or coins without any information (fineness, metal, value) stamped/coined. Would you buy such a thing?
