FILE - In this Aug. 8, 2011 file photo a person touches gold bars in the gold store of the Cantonal Bank of Zurich ZKB in Zurich, Switzerland.  In Switzerland, a campaign is on to protect the country’s wealth by investing in gold _ a lot of gold. In a test of their sense of financial security, the Swiss are being asked to vote on a proposal to make the central bank hold a fifth of its reserves in gold within five years. That would mean buying 1,500 metric tons, or 1,650 short tons, of gold worth more than US$60 billion. (AP Photo/Keystone, Martin Ruetschi) EDITORIAL USE ONLY, NO SALES, NO ARCHIVES
