Item 8.01 Other Events.
As previously disclosed in greater detail, the net asset value of the Merk Gold Trust (the “Trust”) is determined each day the NYSE Arca is open for regular trading based on the afternoon session (or most recent session if the afternoon session is not available) of the twice daily fix of the price of gold determined by the London Gold Fix.  However, the London Bullion Market Association (the “LBMA”) has announced that the LBMA Gold Price, which will be determined twice daily by the ICE Benchmark Administration as an independent third-party administrator, will replace the London Gold Fix on March 20, 2015.  As a result of such announcement, Merk Investments LLC, the sponsor of the Trust, has instructed The Bank of New York Mellon, the trustee of the Trust, to begin using the LBMA Gold Price to determine the net asset value of the Trust on March 20, 2015.  Until such time, the net asset value of the Trust will continue to be determined using the London Gold Fix.
There can be no assurance that future changes to, or the discontinuance of, the London Gold Fix will not have a material effect on the Trust.  The use of the LBMA Gold Price as a replacement for the London Gold Fix could result in materially different net asset values of the Trust.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned in its capacity* hereunto duly authorized.
