Is gld considered a collectible?

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has determined that the GLD is considered a collector's item. Any benefit is taxed at a much higher rate of 28% compared to the normal long-term capital gains rate of 15% or 20%. Examples include SPDR Gold Shares (GLD), iShares Gold Trust (IAU), Aberdeen Standard Gold ETF Trust (SGOL) and iShares Silver Trust (SLV).
