It's like a bank......except instead of depositing crappy fiat funny money, you can deposit precious metals. I see this as a way to even pay bills, etc, bypassing using the US Dollar after its inevitable collapse.
I've lived in Texas for 13 years and I feel grafted on permanently now. Go Texas! Next up: Seceding from the union. We have a 3 trillion a year economy down here. We don't need the United States. The united states needs us.

Unless the feds were to collapse in such a scenario, if it came down to it the feds would confiscate the gold. What would Texas do? Secede? Even if they did, Texas wouldn't be able to defend the gold. The US wouldn't recognize the succession, would move in to take it, and then put down an internal rebellion.

1. They will be merging to a entirely digital currency though collapse of most currencies then to SDR's then the digital currency push comes, hence the RFID(Beast SYS) chips soon to roll out; so they will care less over Gold/Silver as currency in the scope of things to come.
2.If the FED/and or US did do that then it would definitely spark a 2nd Civil War. First most Texans would rise up against any enemy foreign or domestic that would try that. Second many Americans would see that in the same light as Police beating and killing people as of late and many Americans would join the fight. Thirdly, many states are desperately fighting to keep state's rights or trying to get there, many state's would join in the fight and there you have a division in America, split in half and tinkering towards Civil War; so no I don't think the FED/and or US would do such UNLESS THEY WANTED A CIVIL WAR............
3. Yes the FED/ and the Federal government would not recognize Texas if we seceded from the United States but some states would, the people would, Russia and a few other countries would, and Chuck Norris would too(sorry I couldn't help myself on that last one)..... Not to mention the lol.... U.N. would as well most likely and damn it if the Pope can recognize Palestine then he better recognize the great state and republic of Texas.
