The Mint charges a Service Fee in respect of its management, storage and custodial services. The Service Fee is calculated and accrued daily at an annual rate of 0.35% of the Per ETR Entitlement to Gold on each day of all outstanding ETRs and paid monthly in arrears on the 15th day of each. Each month, the Mint withdraws an amount of gold bullion equal to the Service Fee. Accordingly, the amount of gold bullion underlying each ETR decreases over time as the Service Fee is accrued. The Service Fee may be varied by the Mint on 90 days' advance notice. There are also fees for the redemption of ETRs, for more information see Redemption of ETRs.
