I am poor and have very little gold. Think a few small coins.
Whilst I'm happy driving over to Europe carrying my tiny stash along with me, and have had no problems, air travel involves totalitarian surveillance.
Would it be considered foolish to carry one's favourite 'lucky' coins with them if having to travel by air (against my will, I hate air travel), within 'safe' European countries?
Are there any money laundering regulations that would assume I was illegally exporting bullion for nefarious purposes, or are small amounts ignored?
For example, my old watch is worth more than my few gold coins... and I've never been suspected of money laundering by wearing my nice watch when travelling by air.
However, I hate modern air travel with a passion and thought it best to check here before taking my favourite coins from what remains of my little collection with me for safe keeping.
Any advice would be VERY welcome.
