In the past this was once a popular thread. I did enjoy reading the thought lines and what people found deal wise.

The last few days have been worth talking about, price wise.

Have three sites I buy from:
Monarch: I prefer Hand Poured, 1, 2, 3 and sometimes 5 oz'ers.
Apmex: No preference, look for deals (Silver Eagles and such)
Provident Metals: Freedom Girl: Best design on the market. IMO.

Novelty Coins I'm looking at this week.

Silver Bullet Bullion: .45 ACP, 7.62 NATO, .50 BMG, & 20MM. Cool if you like silver ammunition.
Freedom Girl: I like the art.
Slave Queen: Also art.

My orders are ready, now waiting for the price at the dealers to show a price below 27. I'll trade my over printed currency for some silver.

A new thread is just a though.

Minimum purchase is the deal killer.

Holding off on Silver, might be a better price coming our way. Read a lot and believe nothing the pros say.

It has to do with stock piles and manufacturing. One over, one under.

Playing that wait and see game because nobody knows.

Sold my Kruegerands this summer to pay cash for acreage on Oregon coast...best thing I ever did except for the f*##ing 28% capital gains tax on the gold sale!!!!

Still, I am liquidating everything to get off the grid..including the tax grid. Waiting for Warka to allow withdrawals & then will clean out most of that. What I leave will be just in case they ever get it together. I may keep a few pm coins just for survivalist purposes, but prefer food storage; either way...I am finally "dropping out"......should have done it years ago!

If I were selling you that property, I believe tradeing "Krugerrand's for property" would have been the better deal.

Age is my reason for not dropping out. I did had plans for that 11.5 acres but had to sell. I'd say more about the sale but…. "Never kick a sleeping dog" if you know what I mean.

My plan looked something like this: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=Container+Home+Shipping+House+Plans&Form=IQFRDR&&id=1A50B6E18EC25179FD81B80F6AA30857DD6F9623&selectedIndex=114#view=detail&id=1A50B6E18EC25179FD81B80F6AA30857DD6F9623&selectedIndex=0

Was going to bury a couple underground. Storm shelter and storage. I had the perfect site. Back half flat, front sloping. Almost a 50 / 50 split.

Or maybe a cluster of these: http://dornob.com/house-in-a-can-prefab-metal-off-the-shelf-grain-silo-homes/

Unlike Hotel California, it was going to be a place you wouldn't want to leave.

I buy Silver not to make a profit but a way to keep money out of the bank. They pay me very little for using it and I'm doing my part to keep that big bonus down.

40plus, Oregon coast, trees, foggy mornings, cool summer breezes. Never experienced these things for it's hot or cold down here in Texas. No in between-es.

Reasons not to keep to much cash in the bank:

A commentary: Some of which I'm aware of, some I wasn't. It's just happens to be in one spot for me to see. Still a lot hidden that we don't.

You are all welcome

We live in the most uncertain time in our generation and maybe 2 generations.

I believe most western governments and banks are bust and they will do anything including stealing our money not only via taxes but stealth ie low interest rate and high inflation and hair cuts on bank accounts and pension funds ..........and land / property taxes...........does not leave many places to run........beware the bond and stock bubble + buy to let!

Many are being herded like sheep into assets to keep the system going. (housing, stocks & Bonds) for yield when the first rule of investing is "not to make a loss" ...........of purchasing power..........PM's seem to me one of the answers there are others ie collectibles such as art etc but lets face it governments will come after your wealth to pay for all the debts and will choose the easy options on land,property,pensions and accounts and stock dividends as they cannot be hidden.

They are fighting deflation tooth and nail and the costs to CB's seems great but what price would it cost if the financial system collapsed?

EB,
I was thinking I were standing that corner by myself. Good to see someone else is thinking about this.

Even the rich are finding this out, aka: Offshore accounts.
Not illegal but not paying taxes…run this game at your own risk.

Offshore accounts in itself is a good indicator there is good reason to hide one's money.

Cash and PM's, I must agree is our best bet.
Stay away from safe deposit boxes.
"Safe" used here is an oxymoron.

And if they ask the answer is stock: I spent the cash. I sold the silver on CL, sorry no recipe. I bought it at 40 and sold it at 25, no profit no recipe. Or their favorite, "I don't recall".

And thanks for your links, always good.

Hi SG

Hope all is well............I guessed wrong that if we followed last year this years low would be middle of May.

May came early this year.............my guess we will see movement upwards in May but I was wrong on my last thinking! LOL

Yes 18 months of consolidation is a bit lacking in action..........longer the time frame higher the gain is my thoughts.

Guess its good to get institutionalized on the consolidation periods for I am sure there will be more to come over the following years.

.............I saw silver at $22.32! Silver hasn't been that low in Since 2010!!! I kinda wish it would drop back down to $5 bucks an ounce like it was a few years back..............Then I could afford to actually BUY some!;) Eventually its gonna go through the roof....these drops don't really bother me....I just look at it as a buying opportunity!:rolleyes: Get it while you can!

I couldn't believe how ALL of the metals were crashing though!?!? This is what I saw:
Yesterday
Gold - Down $154.85 @ $1329.44 Today: $1386.99
Silver - Down $3.62 @ $22.32 Today: $23.60
Platinum - Down $83.50 Today: $1446.50
Paladium - Down $52.00 @ $649 Today: $682.57

Yesterday was something else! But! Today it looks like things are somewhat on the rebound. I'm trying to buy up all I can when/while the price is right.....I know they won't be down forever.

It will, sorry for gold and silver bugs here, but Europe will be dumping gold to make their bills, and silver will go along for the ride. I'll buy another brick when it hits 1200 or so. Silver should see 15/oz before too long. Buy Apple and Sirius and hold that for a year..

Just thinking about the extremes.

http://news.goldseek.com/GoldSeek/1366397576.php

The Secret World Of Gold (Documentary)

3 Part video. All lined up nice and neat.

If nothing else it should get you thinking about gold prices in todays market. $1400 in todays market is cheep. It may go lower. "2013 has pushed gold out of equilibrium and a price as low as $1050 an ounce is possible.
Now let's think about the high end of the spectrum of gold prices in the future. $50,000 an ounce. This should make owning one ounce worth you effort. One coin or bar not paper.

Saving forward. Something not used much these days. It's a simple concept I've practice all my life.

$20 here, $30 there, $100, sometimes as much $300 dropped into savings. Keeping a mental record. All toward a future purchase.

"Holy cow, not even the most vociferous gold bears saw that one coming!"

They crash it to scare investors into thinking gold was a bad investment.

"Holy cow, not even the most vociferous gold bears saw that one coming!"

What they also missed was the pinned-up, locked out small investor that saved forward just waiting for this day.

If you move, I don't think you will lose.

Silver will also serve you will.
Examine the extremes: $3,500 gold at current ratios (gold /silver ratio) $58.00. Extreme ratio swing: $290.00 silver.
Love to see this one: Suggested levels are between $19 and $20.

And don't discount Geowhiz predicting $15/oz. Don't leave him out of the mix.


Plenty of dealers out there. Most all will sell small. Setting up a account is free. Most will take a credit card but will charge more for that. Some will take a personal check, some a cashier's check is preferred. Bank wires can be used, I've never used this service. (added cost?) A standard is it must be postmarked within two days. One dealer only gives one day. Premiums very, shop around.

Added 4/22: Buy out of state and keep the sales tax in your pocket.

SILVER USES – USES OF SILVER
Important uses of silver are divided into three main categories: (1) traditional or common uses of silver, (2) industrial uses of silver and (3) emerging technology. Why are there so many uses of silver? The important uses for silver come from a variety of unique properties including strength, malleability, ductility and thermal ability. These properties make silver a valuable commodity in the world economy and are the reasons for refining silver.

This may not hold true in the near future:

SILVER USES – INDUSTRIAL USES OF SILVER
(These things we're aware of.)

The melting point of silver is 1,763.2F or 961.78C and the boiling point of silver is 3,924F or 2,162C. There are many industrial uses of silver because of silver’s high tolerance for heat and silver’s electrical conductivity. For example, a use of silver is to coat the touch-sensitive switches and buttons in television sets, telephones, cell phones, toys and computer keyboards.

(What most are not aware of.)

The advances in Graphene.

http://www.bing.com/news/search?q=graphene+news&qpvt=graphene+news&FORM=EWRE
http://www.bing.com/search?q=Graphene+Patents&FORM=QSRE2
http://www.graphene-info.com/

Just saying: Industrial silver has new and strong competition.

A little history:
What could be industrial constraints about these applications?
E. Conrad : Thinking about industrial constraints at this point is a bad idea. First we must prove the device will work, then we worry about how to build them on an industrial scale. The example is the invention of the transistor. They built the first transistor out of germanium (Ge), one of the most expensive materials know at the time (only ~20 people ever held the stuff). When they found out Ge transistors did not work well enough they started a project to build it out of an even more expensive material that no one knew how to purify: silicon.

Your computer in the future made using Graphene.

"Computers so fast they have not been able to calculate the speed."

They have the ability to refine graphene on a small scale for research. Larger scale refining needed to move it into industrial application to be use in metrology, biotechnology, high-frequency transistors, flexible and transparent electronics, batteries or photonics.

Using silver in solar cells will be a thing of the past.

Just my take on industrial silver.

A small investment of $2000 placed with the right company could yield great returns.
A Grapehene Investment Thread could prove useful.

Silicon is not expensive. Its sand. Also easy to purify by heating with coke in a furnace or you can purify it in your kitchen by simply heating a mixture of sand and magnesium in a test tube.

Already on top to that one.

When the technology's are combined, silicon and graphene they have produced a solar cells that's above 40% efficient.

I like science and it's moving fast. Hard to keep up.

Got one for you, so many tidbits out there:

Metallurgists at the University of Utah have cooked up an ingenious way to produce solar cells using something that nearly everyone has right at home: a microwave oven. Scientists used a basic microwave, one that was previously used by students to heat up food, to create a nanocrystal semiconductor. Creating a typical semiconductor requires a lot of time and can be toxic. But this new method is cleaner, cheaper and more efficient than ever before.

Apple has been all over the board, you have to adjust your position accordingly. Im still over 100k ahead, and holding tight until it eventually goes back to 500 after the next IPhone release. But SIRI and NFLX are going through the roof, disgusting profits, no better time to be in huge on those. Check Ultra Petroleum and Chesapeake for the summer drilling season.. Sure this market is completely FED driven, but who cares, all you have to do is look at what's been happening with the USD/JPY and USD/EUR lately to see where everybody is throwing their money. When those turn, then buy all the silver and gold you can. But I'd be holding off on silver purchases for quite awhile... JMO

As I stared at the chart again, almost absentmindedly,
I put two vertical lines on it, one representing August
17, 2011, and one that marked January 14, 2013; and
suddenly, a concept that had been gnawing away at
me for a while crystallized in my mind as those two
lines pulled in a whole bunch of known knowns, known
unknowns, and even a couple of unknown unknowns.
It was a truly Rumsfeldian moment.

Texas eliminates sales tax on precious metals coins

Landmark legislation, which went into effect Tuesday in Texas, completely eliminates all taxation of precious metals on the grounds that gold and silver can be considered a currency.

Mineweb reported that Texas removed its sales tax on purchases of gold, silver and platinum bullion and numismatic coins as of October 1. Previously those living in the state had to pay a 6.25-percent tax on precious metals purchases under $1,000.

RoyalBeluga, are you hanging in there? Are you ready for another wild ride like 2011? QE in full force around the world. Capital controls sneaking in. Mining production slowing. Metals draining from vaults. Confidence in the dollar waning. And my witchdoctor says something big this way cometh.

Yes SG wild ride coming up getting ready to swap G for S Ratio approaching 64 in .....waiting for around 70 then boom back up the truck on S and swap current holdings G for S.................been waiting a long time for this.

Should be done and dusted by end of Feb............may go to May!

Seems G is leading S................normally the other way round............perhaps the "New normal" as if there is one anymore!

Good luck to all

Thirty tons of historical coins to be auctioned by Stack's Bowers Galleries
A rich haul of historical coins weighing 30 tons acquired by Stack's Bowwers Galleries will come up for auction beginning in April, first on internet.
This will have a profound effect on new collectors coming into the hobby, for the vast majority of the coins will be very affordable — quite a change from the usual business of handling rarities.

Silver at 20/ounce US ... what's the big deal ? / actually down from Feb. ... Silver's a hoax - not many countries propping up their currency with silver ... and it has limited uses ... buy copper and gold mining stocks ... much cheaper and more versatile JMHO.

no less than copper I guess ... just a cheaper route..

Bacteria, yeasts, and viruses are rapidly killed on metallic copper surfaces, and the term “contact killing” has been coined for this process. While the phenomenon was already known in ancient times, it is currently receiving renewed attention. This is due to the potential use of copper as an antibacterial material in health care settings. Contact killing was observed to take place at a rate of at least 7 to 8 logs per hour, and no live microorganisms were generally recovered from copper surfaces after prolonged incubation. The antimicrobial activity of copper and copper alloys is now well established, and copper has recently been registered at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the first solid antimicrobial material. In several clinical studies, copper has been evaluated for use on touch surfaces, such as door handles, bathroom fixtures, or bed rails, in attempts to curb nosocomial infections. In connection to these new applications of copper, it is important to understand the mechanism of contact killing since it may bear on central issues, such as the possibility of the emergence and spread of resistant organisms, cleaning procedures, and questions of material and object engineering. Recent work has shed light on mechanistic aspects of contact killing. These findings will be reviewed here and juxtaposed with the toxicity mechanisms of ionic copper. The merit of copper as a hygienic material in hospitals and related settings will also be discussed.

Silver has industrial use, Gold mainly jewelry. Nothing to fight over.

"buy copper and gold mining stocks" I would add Silver to this list.

"Holding gold and no where to go." Now why would I make such a statement?

This may totally screw the plan for Iraq to turn their gold into coins. I do believe I said "NOT" in a perverse post.

Currency value to low for the average Iraqi citizen when gold value becomes:

"BID ONLY"

Not my words, but they have merit.
