    Price of metals

    Extreamly loaded question. You have to take “inflation” into account because of governments devaluing their currency’s by deficit spending and unchecked money creation. You can’t simply make a blanket statement that gold is work £X.XX and silver is worth £Y.YY because the value of the currency fluctuates over time. An argument could be made that gold and silver are tangible wealth and currency is fiat and has no real tangible value outside of fools willing to accept it, so gold in that perspective would be priceless. For example would you want a fixed price for gold in Zimbabwe dollars? How about $5 Zimbabwe dollars per ounce?? That’s over double your price in your question. I have a 100 trillion Zimbabwe note in my office that I would be happy to exchange for that rate for gold. You see, the paper is worthless because it can be printed into worthlessness. That only scratches the surface but I hope that helps!
  2. I’m not sure how much if it stays local, I know that some of it goes to he archdiocese and then some goes to the Vatican. I’ll have to look into that.
  3. Right, I was also thinking is one ounce per week enough but that’s almost double the amount Jesus was betrayed for! Actually I’ve heard that the “pieces” of silver were nowhere near an ounce per piece.

    Fancy one of these?

    Wow very unique, who makes those?
  5. I’ve been seriously thinking of giving to my church by putting bullion in the collection basket every week. My reasons are that I’m catholic and I think that the church took a wrong turn when they started to allow the taking and giving of interest or usury. Today all money is based on interest, something considered a mortal sin previously by all major religions. It bothers me every week when the collection basket is brought forward full of fiat money, the symbolism of that is evidence of how far humanity has fallen in my opinion. My idea is to put maybe a sealed one ounce bullion bar in an envelope every week with a small typed note that requests that the church retain the bar for a rainy day. I don’t intend on putting my name on it or making a big fuss. How do you think this would be received?

    Selling silver

    And that’s how you know silver is undervalued. Walk through any store and see the plastic junk from China that’s selling for the equivalent of an ounce of silver!

    US help needed

    I agree, if you think the tax is unfair then work to get the tax laws changed in your country. Otherwise just pay the tax, it’s not worth breaking the law and destroying your integrity. With that said I don’t like taxes either and live in a state with very high taxes here in the US. I complain about them and have talked to my local representatives but I still pay them.

    Wall Street crashing Gold most likely to go up

    Also I’ll add that the market isn’t falling because of the expectation of higher rates, that’s the narrative that the media peddles. The real reason is that people are waking up to the fact that everything is over priced because of the ultra low rates and massive liquidity that’s been pumped into the global financial system over the past 10 years. Rates CAN’T actually rise back to normal levels, if they did the governments of the world would be insolvent and unable to service the debt. The only option now is to inflate away the debt because massive taxation to lower the debt can’t be done without revolt.

    Interest rates rising are a sign of inflation, which is good for metals in a numerical currency price sense.

    There is always buyers, in fact the higher the price goes the more buyers there are! Remember what the wise man does in the beginning, the fool does in the end.

    2018 Cook Islands 3 coin ultra high relief

    What I didn’t tell you guys is that I bought 3 sets lol!! i think I’ll save one to have in the original case, send one set out for grading and keep the last to either sell or give as a gift someday. Beautiful set, I’m very impressed. I would be more impressed if I hadn’t bought my five five kilo coin so recently.
