Demand from Rural India raises Perth Mint December Gold Sales

The year ended on a stronger note for gold. The demand for gold surged thanks in part to the high crop prices that farmers in rural India are getting for their produce. It’s clear that gold has a great influence on the economy of a country. According to the Economic Times of India, the demand for gold rose in India as a result of farmers getting more for their crops. Clearly, it has been a good harvest judging by the 15% rise in gold purchases in December. The rising prices of crops like Soybeans, cotton and guar have boosted farming income.
