INDIA, bullion coins & bars
    Hoarding has been a popular hobby in India since civilization began.  Gold and precious stones are preferred, but silver will do.  The demand has been satisfied by a multitude of smelters and jewelers, who produce jewelry and ingots for retail sale.  The ingots come in various shapes, including the normal bars and "coinoids."
