Possibly the greatest plumbing heist in history.


It happened just a couple weeks ago, at a palace in Britain. The thieves snuck into the palace early in the morning. Did their business and made off with the loot. Or should I say loo… Since what they stole was the toilet. Which begs the question. Why would they steal a toilet?


Because the toilet is made of … 18-karat gold. And it’s valued at more than 5 million dollars.


Before the “golden throne” arrived in Britain, it was on display at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. While there, over 100,000 visitors made functional use of the toilet. The toilet was then sent to Britain’s Blenheim Palace to be part of an art display by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan. Once the toilet arrived, it was fully installed and plumbed at the Blenheim Palace in Britain which is also the birthplace of the famous leader, Winston Churchill.


When reading this story, one couldn’t help but think, if the theives had taken all that effort and energy and just opened a SmartMetals account with Hard Assets Alliance.


Because with the Hard Assets Alliance:


You don’t have to risk going to jail.

You don’t have to stick your hands in a toilet, even if it is gold.

You don’t even have to leave the house.


P.S. As for the thieves, police have reported that one man, 66 years old, has been arrested in connection to the burglary. Unfortunately, they have not recovered the “golden throne” as of this writing.


If you want to get gold for yourself, there is a much better way than stealing toilets. Simply click here, open your SmartMetals account and you can buy gold, silver, platinum, and palladium.
