Speaking to the Investing News Network, Frank explains that gold prices could rise if China were to succeed in having the renminbi join the British pound, euro, Japanese yen and U.S. dollar as a global reserve currency. Doing so would require China to back the renminbi with bullion, which would help drive the yellow metal higher.

“China wants to be positioned as another player at the table,” Frank says.
