Gold Bullion is the Only Reserve Currency

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

The only time people seem to be happy with the Federal Reserve these days is when there is a massive injection of money into the markets. We call these programs Quantitative Easing, and despite the official announcement of the third round there are still fundamental problems in the US employment numbers and the housing market.

Perhaps those two areas more than any others are the basis for the US economy, and when we see very little quantifiable growth in these areas, such as is currently the case, we need to evaluate our positions on the economy.

Luckily, whether the economy is good or bad there is an asset available that can store, transfer, and accumulate wealth: gold bullion. Gold has an inherent value that is fundamentally predicated on its scarcity in society. This is why gold has been treasured through the ages in civilizations across the planet. Gold is valued in the most diverse of cultures with absolutely no contact between each other and it is a testament to the inherent value of gold.

In times of troubles, as we have seen recently in countries like Zimbabwe, gold becomes the de facto reserve currency and the only reliable currency of exchange between people. While the currency in Zimbabwe reached hyperinflationary extremes and the central bank began printing multiples of million-dollar notes, the populace ceased using the currency at all, relying instead upon gold that was panned from the African landscape in rivers and streams.

The Federal Reserve is printing money like tomorrow came and went and we have yet to see how it will fully affect the money supply. We know from previous rounds that the money-printing will take years to fully register their effects on our economy and what we have seen so far in terms of recovery is lackluster at best.

Paper currency has always been faulty, and in this economy it is doubly untrustworthy. The wisdom and fundamental strength of gold bullion is what we come to rely on and realize in times like these.

Gold Bullion in the Federal Reserve Game

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

A lot of people take a lot of jabs at the current Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and at his administration. It’s fairly understandable. The economic policy of the Fed, despite being a veritable market unto itself, has yielded a “frustratingly slow” recovery in the words of Ben Bernanke himself.

“Helicopter Ben,” as he is sometimes called in alternative media, is the nickname given to the Chairman of the Fed due to his inflationary policy of wanton money printing. All the stimulus programs we have seen, the Quantitative Easing programs, and the debt-monetization amounts to printing money. The Fed has proved it is willing and able to print money.

The image portrayed is one of Ben Bernanke, leaning out of the window of a helicopter and raining money down, which he could do ad infinitum as the Chairman of the Fed. This fits with his image as a moot academic with little to no business savvy or real world experience. In order to buy popularity and acceptance, he is printing money.

All of this may or may not be true. Politically speaking, hopefully the Chairman of the Federal Reserve knows what he’s doing and is fairly immune to attacks on his image. Economically speaking, however, the policy of the central bank is necessarily causing a lot of inflation in the cost of real goods.

Gold bullion is about as tangible of a commodity as you can get. It is, in essence, the most real good available on the market. Therefore, as “Helicopter Ben” continues to print money, and there are indications he is going to print more of it, the price of gold will continue to skyrocket.

Gold production and supply has changed little since the start of this crisis. But the value of the dollar, which is in question, has changed quite a bit and promises to change even more in the future. As the Fed continues printing money, and there is indication they must print more, the price of gold bullion will continue to gain as a real good in a sea of fake paper.

Not Even Central Banks Could Cover-Up Gold Bullion

Monday, March 5th, 2012

A true upholder of gold bullion is one who sits back and waits because he understands that the time will come…

What comes around, goes around. My, oh my, how the tables have been turned on central bankers. Their latest scheme on capitalism is simply not working as they presumed it would. Their astonishing, yet distorted at times, three century execution with supremacy and prosperity was finally brought to an end by the economic crisis of the last few years. The manner by which they preyed upon others in an attempt to enhance their wealth is at its final stage because those accountable can no longer reimburse what they are bound to. No one can change the hard reality that the ones under the obligation have no money and, consequently, their creditors will soon follow in destitution.

The allowances that were conceded to central bankers created monsters who cultivated credit and debt gambled on a leveraged basis of paper money partially sustained by gold which then permitted the West to amass political power and wealth to a cosmic degree across all continents. But, alas, it culminated with the US dollar’s loss of its vital link to gold in 1971 when the toll of preserving a say in all military goings on across the world became more important than the ability of the United States to settle in gold what it was indebted for. Just by looking at the frail condition of the euro we are almost certain that the end is very near. Remember that the euro was initiated in an unsuccessful European effort to contend with the US dollar which was ever more tremulous.

It took only 9 years for gold to catapult from $35 per ounce to $850 subsequent to the US discontinuing the gold convertibility of the US dollar in 1971. This increment of approximately 2,500% in value overshadowed a much smaller rise of 1,400% of the Dow from 777 in 1983 to 11,722 in January 2000. Bankers began getting edgy with the intensifying gold price and were determined to put the lid on it. They saw the truth about their fiat paper money, a truth they could not bear anyone else to recognize.

So began a journey of 40 years to desperately try and cover up the precious metal’s influence on their worthless paper. But not the way one would think. They were too sneaky for that. Their efforts were not really in shrouding real market demand and the gold price, but rather in a more deceptive and fraudulent manner. They overcame gold’s true price by furnishing markets with gold bullion owned by the nations they allegedly worked so hard for. Then came Frank AJ Veneroso who, with his intellectual mindset, uncovered a very important piece of the puzzle. Since the beginning of the 1980s, the majority of gold marketed consisted of central bank gold sales and loans. Veneroso‘s conjecture is that in 1990, 21.5% of gold sold that year surfaced from central bank vaults. The sales had expanded to over 1/3 (34.6%) of all gold sold by 2000.

This is why between 1980 and 2001 the price of gold went down. There were thousands of tons of central bank gold entering the market. Interestingly, the price of gold started going up in 2001 despite all the gold that was fraudulently dumped. The story doesn’t end here, it merely begins. The point is that gold bullion will stand tall in the face of these monsters. Go long.

Gold American Eagle Bullion

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Most people don’t like to leave a party while it’s just getting going, but even today’s hard core bullion faithful realize that no party can last. These cagey investors are closely monitoring dollar values, as well as for any source that could indicate if and when our government will resort to bullion confiscation to rescue our desperately devaluing dollar. The last U.S. government bullion confiscation from American citizens was enacted in 1933 by order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to back up the value of our nation’s dollar, and to stabilize her emaciated banking system. Today’s wiley bullion investors are considering only using bullion coins like gold American Eagle bullion to diversify their rare coin holdings.

Gold American Eagle bullion has been ideal to use for short-term profit ventures, because these 22-karat coin’s weight and precious metal content are backed by the U.S. government. These coins contain a full troy ounce of pure gold, so the government would be more than happy to confiscate these items, should a second government bullion seizure be enacted. Bullion investors are now beginning to invest in long-term rare coins like Double Eagles, for proven wealth protection throughout dire economic circumstances. Double Eagles are rare $20 Lady Liberty, and $20 Saint Gaudens, 22-karat gold coins, and they are deemed to be irretrievable through government confiscation, as stated by Executive Order Of 1933, which exempts “rare and unusual coins” from government seizure. Investors can avoid paying felonious retail prices for their gold American Eagle bullion, and Double Eagle rare coin by contacting one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts to household investors like you.

Even though multitudes of American investors have lost faith in Wall Street and our nation’s banking system, they can still show their patriotism by purchasing American gold bullion, as they convert their wealth into precious metal diversification. Traditional investments in stocks and bonds have had their overextended course of contrived prosperity, now it’s time to pay the piper. As we all prepare for the treacheries of an indeterminate inflationary period, many investors are claiming financial independence from our banks and brokers by diversifying with American gold bullion like Engelhard brand, one-ounce, and ten-ounce bars, and American gold bullion coins like 22-karat American Eagles, or 24-karat American Buffalos.

Engelhard 24-karat bars are manufactured in New Jersey, and make great items for personal possession, as well as short-term diversifications for rare coins like $20 Lady Liberty’s, or $20 Saint Gaudens, which are traditionally used for long-term stability. Bullion prices usually hover just above the current spot price, and investors can also use this affordability for long-term financial safety, as government approved, gold-backed IRA contributions. Rare coins are not permitted for precious metal IRA storage, but the aforementioned American Eagles, and Buffalo coins are permissible, along with proof, and “Ultra-High” proof versions of the modern American Eagle bullion coin. Investors may also wish to round off their budgets with fractional denominations of the $50 American Eagle, which include ½-ounce, ¼-ounce, and 1/10-ounce coins. These investors are encouraged to complete their research, and then to contact one of our friendly specialists, who offer institutional discounts on bullion, and rare coin.

American Gold Bullion

American investors needn’t look beyond U.S. borders to satisfy their long-term and short-term financial needs and expectations, as those needs can be met or even surpassed with investments in American Gold Bullion. Bullion has historically been used to protect dollar values from dollar devaluation, and physical possession of bullion bars and coins provides investors with invaluable financial independence from brokers and bankers. Bullion is also traditionally used as a short-term potential profit vehicle, since it possesses no numismatic value, and bullion prices generally hover slightly above the current gold spot price.

There are still plenty of patriotic, American investors who insist on buying American products whenever possible, and gold is no exception. Many physical gold investors initially buy one-ounce, and/or ten-ounce bars, and Engelhard, is the American gold bullion brand of choice. Household investors can also use these bars for long-term stability, as they are acceptable contributions for precious metal-backed IRA’s.

Sooner or later, most investors expand their range into bullion coins, which command a slightly higher premium than bars, due to the complexity of their minting. American Eagle, 22-Karat gold coins, are the official bullion coin of the U.S., and also the number one selling coins among U.S. investors. American gold bullion never looked more majestic, as these beautiful coins are inexact replicas of the famed, $20 Saint Gaudens 22-Karat gold coin, minted from 1907 to 1933. These coins are available in one-ounce denominations, as well as ½-ounce, ¼-ounce, and 1/10-ounces, to make American gold bullion more widely affordable. American Eagles are also available as proofs, and as 24-Karat, “ultra-high” proofs, for true, gold coin aficionados. Investors are encouraged to complete their research, and then to contact one of our friendly gold specialists, who offer large-volume discounts on bullion bars and coins.
