Not sure they will let you in in a few weeks!  

I cannot see any Turk giving up his Gold!  US Dollars  are different these days they are not worth the same as they used to be, they do not command the same security esp in Asia.  We will see how big Erdogans balls are over the next few  days/ couple of weeks if he holds fast and lets the currency drop it will hurt western banks. Remember Turkey have been one of the biggest buyers of Gold. We will see who wins the western banks or the Asian block.  

Oh have a nice holiday if they let you in

Nationwide bank used to allow fee free cash withdrawals in any country. Not sure  they still do but when I did it in a Thailand I also got a great exchange rate. 

The FlexPlus current account comes with worldwide family travel insurance and commission-free cash withdrawals while you're away, all for just £13 a month.

Apparently Turkish banks have been told not to change more than £50 per day to customers 

Gonna make it difficult exchanging over there now as this is in place for 7 days at the moment and no one will risk exchanging at say 8 lira to the pound for it to drop back below 7 next week

Yeah but you can take gold into any Jewelers and get cash for it.

Sounds like a good gold:fiat experiment 

Gold shouldn’t set of the metal detectors pop a few sovereigns in your wallet in case lol

Yeah that’s the one I have and it covers the whole families mobiles too! I also get breakdown cover included. Not bad for £13 but t I suppose it depends if you make use of it.
