Gold, Silver, and the US Dollar: 1792-1971
In today's musing, I review the history of gold, silver, and fiat currency as money in the United States of America. I document how various wars, panics and depressions, Congressional acts, and executive orders have affected the US dollar prices of precious metals and resulting gold-silver ratios.This musing covers the period from 1792 when the United States government first established a national currency backed by gold and silver until

Ultrasonic inspection of precious metals
Conventional techniques for precious metal quality assessment Historically, inspection of gold quality has mostly involved chemical analysis to determine purity, using techniques such as fireassay[1]. But as this is a wholly destructive technique, there are obvious disadvantages. More recently minimally or non-destructive techniques such as mass spectrometry [1] or X-ray fluorescence [2,3], and even low temperature photoluminescence [4] have been used.

  What should the gold/silver ratio be
The price of gold is dominated by investment demand* to such an extent that nothing else matters as far as its price performance is concerned. Investment demand is also the most important driver of silver’s price trend, although in silver’s case industrial demand is also a factor to be reckoned with. In addition, changes in mine supply have some effect on the silver market, because unlike the situation in the gold market the annual supply of newly-mined silver is not trivial relative to the exis

History of Gold
April 2, 1792 : The US Coinage Act
The 1792 Coinage Act had an interesting provision under Section 19. SEC. 19. And be it further enacted, That if any of the gold or silver coins which shall be struck or coined at the said mint shall be debased or made worse as to the proportion of fine gold or fine silver therein contained, or shall be of less weight or value than the same ought to be pursuant to the directions of this act, through the default or with the connivance of any of the officers or persons who

  The Myth of the Gold Supply Deficit 
Analyses based on annual supply and demand of gold appear on a daily basis, whether posted to gold web sites or in the financial media, many of them by the most respected analysts of gold mining shares. These articles typically show an imbalance between supply and demand, suggesting that there is a gold supply deficit. From there, the conclusion follows that a much higher gold price is required in order to bring supply and demand into balance.

  The Silver:Gold Ratio, 1687-2011 
We have something special this week: the open market value of silver, compared to gold, over a period of over three centuries. The location is London. For a long time, silver and gold were, in a sense, two versions of the same thing, just like one dollar bills and twenty dollar bills are today. Their ratio of value was not perfectly stable, like the 20:1 ratio of $1 bills and $20 bills, but it was quite stable between about 16:1 and 15:1. Both silver and gold ser

  Securing Property Rights in the Absence of a State 
Many Rothbardians are vowing not to vote in this or any election since voting only supports the State.But I wonder if they could be persuaded otherwise if they knew one of the ballot choices were to dissolve the governments and replace them with voluntary market institutions.Of course, we don’t have that choice, and most people would either laugh or be scared to death if it were proposed.

March 18, 1968 - "Good Money Is Coined Freedom" Speech by William McChesney Martin, 1968
Today, we have a speech by the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, William McChesney Martin, given on March 18, 1968. At this time, the Bretton Woods era was coming to an end, not because of some inherent problem, but because those in charge of maintaining it (including Martin) really didn't know what they were doing. It was the simplest thing in the world -- a time of peace and prosperity worldwide -- but they were not up to the task. click here for "Good Money Is Coined Freedom," by William McC

A beginner's guide to investing in Gold 
One’s motivation for buying gold is fundamental to deciding in which form you should buy it. Are you a speculator, investor or saver? Do you wish to take a short term speculative position in gold? Are you investing for the short, medium or long term? Or are you diversifying, saving or using gold as a form of financial insurance?

Banker Gold Price Suppression Currency Manipulations Have Persisted for 50 years
This 1967 meeting of the FOMC nearly 46 years ago is clear and indisputable evidence of gold price suppression and currency manipulation of the world's "free" and "open" market exchanges.  This criminal cabal has certainly built up their mechanisms since this time to conceal their sinister scheme from issuing dishonest money. It's blatant now and all of "in your face" is their behavioral response to inquiry. Damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead. If you find this too cumbersome to read, the Fed

Death Valley Snowballs and Fiat Currencies - Gary Christenson
Keep it simple! Snowballs have a short life expectancy in Death Valley. Fiat currencies, backed by credit and debt, survive longer than snowballs in Death Valley, but history shows all fiat currencies are inflated into worthlessness and eventually die. “U.S. dollars have value only to the extent that they are strictly limited in supply.” Ben Bernanke on November 21, 2002. But we know the supply of dollars has grown rapidly since 1971, and especially after the 2008 crisis while Berna
