The country of Turkey has a long history of gold dating back as early as 3000 BC. In 1993 the ban on gold jewelry exports was lifted and this opened the world market for jewelry buyers. QVC and the Home Shopping Network often buy in bulk many of their gold jewelry items from Turkey and sell it to the United States market. The Istanbul Gold Exchange was established in 1995 and in 2002 the Istanbul Gold Refinery was launched. IGR is authorized by the Turkish Treasury and sell certified gold Bullion in sizes ranging from ½ gram to 100 grams.
