wong f. keng

i have 3ozs of krugerrand gold coin i like to invest in a gold saving passbook account howcan i do it i live in hawaii n im from malaysia for my old age retirement and buying kijang emas



Hi Wong,

there’s no other way then to buy from Maybank branch and then have someone send it over to you in Hawaii.

Alternatively you can buy online from ebay etc. but it’s usually more expensive then buying from Mabank directly (in person).

Hope it helps.

Regards, P.



Can we sell gold coins purchased from banks to gold/jewellery retailers? Do they accept these coins?
