Gold or Silver or Bullion or Numismatics??

Here on www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com you know I generally shy away from numismatics and focus more on bullion purchases. My bullion purchases focus on government issued gold and silver bullion coins. They are generally sold at a small premium over the spot values of the precious metals content to cover minting and marketing costs. I also purchase so called "junk silver" which are older US coins that were in circulation and contain varying percentages of silver. They are generally sold for a small premium over melt value. Because of the problems today of counterfeiting I only purchase from recognized dealers with a good reputation. Today there are counterfeiters not only making gold and silver bullion coins but also numismatic coins. Just search YouTube and you will find videos of factories in China producing numismatic coins and bullion coins. These are also basically the same recommendations you will find in the Precious Metals buying guide you can get at this site by subscribing to our newsletter.

The advantages of this approach to buying physical precious metals are:

1. Low premium over spot

2. No need to spend extra money for evaluation or certification of coin grade, etc. to establish value. There have been reported instances of so called "proof sets" or "certified grade" coins sealed in their plastic protective display cases turning out to be counterfeit. If I was buying a coin at a price that was high above spot I certainly would want to make sure it was genuine and could bring close to the value I was paying if I needed to resell.

3. Easily recognized value of a bullion coin makes it easy to sell for what I paid for it.

4. Generally no wide disagreement on the value of a bullion coin as contrasted with a numismatic coin whose value often varies by what the buyer views as the value.

5. Since generally condition of the bullion coin is not an issue there is not the expense of coin grading or a disagreement between recognized numismatic graders on the exact coin grade of the same coin. Since condition plays a large part in determining the value of a numismatic coin price can vary widely.

However this video is another view. In it he says that he became bored by just buying bullion and sold off 90% of his collection when prices dropped. Then he says he noticed an interesting thing. His numismatic coins maintained their value better than his bullion coins. Now this is completely possible. If you have a rare numismatic coin it's value is based on the perceived rarity rather than the value of the metal. But the question for me is the value more than the price I paid for it? Are there any costs associated in selling it and possibly having to validate the value to the buyer? As they say in real estate the value of a piece of property is what a willing buyer is willing to buy it at and a seller is willing to sell it at. A buyer and seller's idea of the perceived value may not be the same. But you could hit it lucky, have a rare coin you bought at good price, and be able to sell for more than you paid for it.

However for me numismatics just have too many variables if I am looking at physical precious metals as a store of value that might be needed for exchange some time in the future.

There is the allure of coin collecting. When I was growing up I had a coin collection and it was interesting to collect the different coins, see the different forms coins were produced in, etc. So numismatics do have value as an interesting hobby. However I don't think you should confuse the hobby aspect with a dependable, exchangeable store of value.

That's my feelings on this issue. I'd like to hear from our viewers and subscribers here at

Richard Russell – Dow Theory Letters & His Amazing Calls for Today

Richard Russell - Dow Theory Letters & His Amazing Calls for Today

Richard Russell has often been called the grandfather of financial newsletters. He was the editor of the Dow Theory Letters which he started in 1958. He continuously edited the Dow Theory Letters until his death November 21, 2015. He correctly called the major market trends in the stock market since the 1950's.

In this video on www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com Ted Sudol and Paul Mladjenovic, author of Stock Investing For Dummies discuss the last two major market calls he made before his death. They are proving to be amazingly accurate.

Precious Metals Titanic Struggle

Precious Metals Titanic Struggle

In this Video at www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com we discuss the precious metals titanic struggle going on now. In the past when large entities like JP Morgan and others dumped large volumes of paper precious metals futures on the market the price would go down and it would trigger selling by others which would drive the price down further. Then the large shorts, which had started this whole downward trend in the paper price of precious metals would jump back in and buy back what they sold at bargain prices.

That has been the story repeated again and again in the precious metals markets. There are some experts in the precious metals markets, like Ted Butler, Bill Murphy and GATA who have been investigating and claiming manipulation in the precious metals markets. Now with the admission of Deutche Bank for their guilt in these manipulation schemes (and their agreement to reveal the names of others) we have evidence of what was suspected is indeed true.

The Precious Metals Titanic Struggle we are discussing is between large financial entities who would like to continue manipulating the precious metals markets for their own profit and a much fairer and free true market discovery that would more fairly value the precious metals.

So now we have precious metals experts looking at the same set or data and coming to two different conclusions. One group says this wholesale shorting of the paper precious metals will lead to lower prices and others saying that it indicates the beginning of a melt up.

As reported by zerohedge.com In April we saw $ 2 Billion Dollars in precious metals shorts being dumped on the market within 10 minutes. Normally that would start the downward movement in the prices that would continue as it triggered selling by others. As things got to an oversold position and bargain basement price the architects of this short scheme would buy back at the discounted price and net a hefty profit.

But this time things didn't quite go as planned. In the past the prices of the precious metals would have continued sliding downward. But this time they quickly firmed up and even started rising. I'm sure that surprised the shorts.

But as Andrew McGuire pointed out the center of gravity in the precious metals has been shifting from West to the East. While the west is selling their precious metals the east has been buying in massive quantities. The precious metal drain at the COMEX to near critical levels has been balanced by the massive increase in Chinese buying and Chinese reserves.

The Shanghai Exchange for precious Metals was established in April. Not only do they present an alternative to London as a center for the precious metals markets but will be pricing the metals in the yuan.

There is a titanic struggle going on in the precious metals markets. I believe were are in the end game for the market manipulators.

Puerto Rico Bonds – Is this Only the First Bomb to Drop?

Puerto Rico Bonds - Is this Only the First Bomb to Drop?

Puerto Rico Bonds - Is it the first bomb to drop in the Bond Bubble Collapse Michael Pento predicted in an earlier interview here on >www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com. Michael Predicted this in his book "The Coming Bond Market Collapse: How to Survive the Demise of the U.S. Debt Market."
In this interview Ted Sudol talks with Paul Mladjenovic, author of Stock Investing for Dummies about the big story in the news - the Puerto Rico Bond Default. We have been hearing rumblings about the possible debt default in Puerto Rico but we have also been hearing about other posible defaults. Atlantic City, New Jersey is almost out of cash and near default. When the casinos first came into Atlantic City and cash was flowing in to government coffers it was spent lavishly. When the economics turned down the government expenditures continued to outstrip the money coming in. The formula for a default is all to common and easily recognized. Spending that outstrips revenue coming in. Since politicians like spending money and telling all of their constituents they can have everything the die is cast. Politicians keep kicking the can down the road for someone else to solve the problem and meanwhile the debt keeps growing.

Atlantic City, New Jersey is running out of cash and facing default. What happened here? When tha casinos first came in the money was flowing in to government coffers. Did they save any for a cushion. No like most politicians they spent like drunken sailors and when the bill due they kicked the can down the road for others to clean up their mess. Does this sound like a familiar story? Unfortunately yes! When the debt burden becomes too much to bear the inevitable almost always occurs - default.
We hear that Greece may be facing a default this summer, Detroit may face bankruptcy and the list goes on. I read a story by a noted independent think tank. They did an analysis and came with a list of 20 countries whose debt was unsustainable and they would never be able to pay back.

Deutsche Bank Admits Manipulation In the Precious Metals Markets

The big news on www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com is Deutsche Bank Admits Manipulation in the Precious Metals Markets. It has admitted guilt in a silver price fixing lawsuit. Even more important is that they have agreed to expose other manipulators.

Ted Butler has been investigating price fixing for 20 years in the precious metals markets.

Bill Murphy and Chris Powell in 1998 formed GATA the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee "to expose, oppose, and litigate against collusion to control the price and supply of gold and related financial instruments."

So this has been a long hard fight to bring these manipulation schemes to light. Congratulations to all of those in the precious metals markets who fought to expose these manipulations in the face of denials and stonewalling by the regulatory organizations that were supposed to be the watchdogs.

The precious metals advocates who are heros in this story are almost too numerous to mention. People like Gerald Celente and websites like www.zerohedge.com Precious Metals Experts like David Morgan of The Morgan Report and Mike Maloney of Rich Dad fame. If I have forgotten any that I should have mentioned please send an email to ted@preciousmetalsinvesting.com and I will make the needed edits and additions to this post.

On this Precious Metals Investing Podcast I talk with Paul Mladjenovic, author of Precious Metals Investing for Dummies and High Level Investing for Dummies about the manipulation in the Precious Metals markets and what he feels will be the effects for investors.

If we look to the past for some guidance we can see that a threat of a lawsuit against the big banks and suspected manipulators lead to a steep rise in precious metals prices. A settlement lead to a drop. But here we are in new territory. A major bank, Deutsche bank,admitted guilt in the silver price fixing lawsuit and further more agreed to exposing other banks that participated in the manipulation schemes.

Does this spell the end of the manipulation schemes in the precious metals markets? I certainly hope so. I think a a freer market will mean a truer price discovery for the precious metals.

For a long time the silver story has been very compelling. Increasing industrial use in electronics, solar energy, medical uses, low recovery rates and lower levels of production leading to smaller above ground stocks of silver.

The story of silver was very compelling and many silver advocates asked why in the face of all of these factors wasn't silver higher. Now we know - Bank Manipulation to keep the prices down.

To repeat the words of Richard Maybury of the US and World Early Warning Report:

"I see nothing but good things ahead for the precious Metals."

Richard Maybury of EWR- War, Money and Precious Metals

On www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com I talk with Richard Maybury one of the world's top free market thinkers. His geopolitical analysis and world view has been guiding investors and subscribers to profitable investments for years. Richard Maybury of EWR, his well regarded US and World Early Warning Report, is read by both political and world leaders. Richard Maybury's Uncle Eric series of books explains economic and political concepts clearly and simply in the form of a favorite uncle writing to his nephew.

In this episode we talk about government and the differences between government and the country. Confusing these two leads many to give the government more credibility than it deserves.

Blind loyalty to government leads to many problems. The US government has overthrown democratically elected leaders, supported dictators and butchers that have killed their own people.

Unfortunately the two things we can depend upon from government are war and currency debasement. That is not good for the people - it causes a lot of suffering and pain. But it is profitable for precious metals investors.

Auto Loans & Record Debt – audio version


>Auto Loans & Record Debt

Cracks are starting to show in the supposedly good news of rising new auto sales. Sales are stimulated artificially by zero interest loans auto loans. Financing is given to individuals who may not normally have qualified or barely qualified. This is a recipe for potential trouble. Typically auto sales are up when the economy is in good shape. but these are not normal times. Sales are being pumped up artificially with low interest rates auto loans, easy credit, and lax qualifications.

Does this sound like the same recipe that caused the housing bubble and flood of bankruptcies, foreclosures and financial ruin? Does this sound like the same recipe that caused so much pain to homeowners that found themselves underwater when either they lost their jobs, the teaser low rate of interest expired and the adjustable mortgage interest rate skyrocketed, or the balloon payment came due.

People were offered new cars at low or zero interest rates. The normal thirty-six month auto loan of the past was now extended in some cases to 78 months. All of these mechanisms were used to enable people to by more car than they could normally afford. When the car buyer encountered economic stress they could often no longer afford the payments. They then have a car that is worth less than the amount of the loan they owe.

The default rate on new car loans has gone up dramatically. This means there are a lot more recently purchased cars that were defaulted on available for sale. We now see the index for used car prices is now also falling.

Bond Market Bubble – Audio Version

Bond Market

Bubble - Audio Version

Some of the visitors here at prefer to get their precious metal investing tips in audio form so they can listen while doing other activities. You asked and we listened. Here is the audio version of the video Bond Market Bubble we just published. Let me know which version you prefer. Send an email to ted@preciousmetalsinvesting.com

In today's volatile stock market some people look to bonds as a safer alternative investment. But is it? Ted Sudol and Paul Mladjenovic, author of Stock Investing For Dummies discuss bond advantages and bond dangers. Because of the low interest rates some people are considering lesser quality bonds often referred to as "junk bonds." Often time that is an appropriate nickname. For any of you who saw the movie The Big Short you got a taste of what happens when underlying assets can's support the paper that supposedly represents them.

Bonds carry counter party risk. You are only holding a piece of paper. A paper claim on the underlying asset. What happens when that company, city government, state government, or even country government can't support the bonds they have issued. What happens when one of these organizations declares bankruptcy?

We think it is a good investment strategy to diversify your investments and part of that diversification should be investments in precious metals. If you are investing in the physical precious metals like bullion, silver eagles, gold eagles, silver maple leaf bullion coins you are also diversifying yourself away from counter party risk.

Bond Market Bubble – Video Interview

Bond Market Bubble

In this video on Ted Sudol and Paul Mladjenovic, author of High Level Investing For Dummies and Precious Metals Investing For Dummiestalk about the bond market bubble.

A lot of people are worried about the turbulence of the stock market are moving their money to bonds. Why is that? Well in the event that the worst happens and there is a bankruptcy the bond holders get paid before the stock holders. So in a sense people move to bonds for safety. Historically bonds have done well in recessions. But there has also been a movement into bonds because interest rates have been so low. People have been so hungry for higher yields they have been moving money into lesser quality bonds the so called "junk bonds."

We are starting to see world-wide debt tearing at the seams and some of the lesser quality bonds are starting to have problems as some of these organizations start defaulting.

You should take a look at the bond ratings but we believe you are going to see more defaults. People invest in precious metals for safety and to avoid counter party risk. People have been investing in the precious metals for thousands of years as a store of wealth and for safety.

Michael Pento, in his book The Coming Bond Market Collapse: How to Survive the Demise of the U.S. Debt Market examines the coming bond market collapse in greater depth.
