Mumbai: ING Vysya Bank said it would offer 24-carat gold coins of 5 grams, 8 grams and 10 grams which will be sold based on international bullion rates.

In a release, the lender said these gold coins are imported from Switzerland and have 999.9 fineness. The coins are offered in tamper-proof packing, along with the assay-certification, the release said.

"Gold as an asset class is a key alternate investment avenue for individual investors and also acts as a natural hedge against other asset classes. We have been seeing tremendous demand for this product," said Uday Sareen, country head for retail banking, ING Vysya Bank.

The bank plans to use its branch network to distribute gold coins, with 149 branches currently offering the product.

Cheap fares

“A ll you need to know about opaque fares” is very useful. We almost got conned by MakeMyTrip, even without opting for cheap fares. After selecting the fare, you click and get a message that the particular fare is not available; the website bumps you with the next cheapest fare and you pay more. So we switched to Cleartrip and guess what, no increase. So is it a con?
