Why is it illegal to own gold in some countries? Shouldn't it be a human right to own gold?
In my country (Zambia) its illegal to own/trade gold without special permission from the proper authority.

To answer your second question:
Being a right is entirely different from being LEGALLY RECOGNIZED right.
To answer your first question:
Banning ownership of anything is usually about control.

Every country has the right to determine what "human rights" the citizens of that country have and to pass whatever laws they see fit.

In what countries is it illegal to own gold?

human rights only exist in America and is by the barrel of a gun.
Gold should be owned by the country as it is the basis for the value of the currency. So if you discover gold , the only palace you can sell it is to the government

No, it's not a human right.
And what countries would that be?
