Right alongside the bills in your wallet

What if you could carry and exchange gold in the exact same manner as you do with the dollar bills in your wallet?
Two years ago, we introduced the precious metals community to a company called Valaurum, which has developed a technology that’s making this possible.
From that write-up:
In short, a fractional gram’s worth of gold is affixed to layers of polyester, creating a note – called an “Aurum” – similar in dimension and thickness to a U.S. dollar bill. This gold (usually 1/10th or 1/20th of a gram) is commercially recoverable. So an Aurum offers similar potential as a coin or bar, in terms of providing a vehicle for storing and exchanging known, dependable increments of precious metals – just in much smaller (and more affordable) amounts than commercially available to date.
