I still think buying metal ETFs are much easier,and less risk of holding and carrying/hiding or selling the phy. metal!
Definitely if you're buying for speculation or investment.

I think in this case, some buyers want to have physical gold in their own safe as a fall-back if the financial system itself collapses.
They also might want to have it in a safe and not in an account to keep the wealth away from the eyes of the tax man.
