Mineral Specimen Collecting: Silver and Gold
For the last 20 years, the author has been visiting mines, mineral fairs, and mineral dealers to purchase and self collect minerals from over 40 countries to date. One of his guiding inspirations was Peter Bancroft's excellent book Gem and Crystal Treasures which describes Bancroft's selection of the 100 localities for the worlds best mineral specimens. This essay will describe some of the background and history of famous localities, and the minerals found there. It is

The 5 Largest Gold Nuggets that Still Exist
Throughout gold rush and gold mining history, the discovery of a large gold nugget is a phenomenon which always causes excitement throughout a mining community as well as capturing the wider public's imagination. It has probably something to do with so much gold being found at the same time, often with relative ease. Gold nuggets can be found in alluvial deposits (sediments formed by water movement) or in other placer deposits (formed by other movement), but gold nuggets can also be found in or

Inflation Is Not About Price Increases
There is almost complete unanimity among economists and various commentators that inflation is about general increases in the prices of goods and services. From this it is established that anything that contributes to price increases sets in motion inflation.A fall in unemployment or a rise in economic activity is seen as a potential inflationary trigger. Some other triggers, such as rises in commodity prices or workers’ wages, are also regarded as potential threats.If inflation is just a genera

God, Gold and Guns
We’ve been looking into One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter. October 2, 2017: One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter October 14, 2017: One Nation Under Gold #2: The Silliness of the Bretton Woods Years Now, we will follow Ledbetter’s account of the end of Bretton Woods in 1971, up to the present. The account of the 1971 devaluation was, following the pattern of this book, long on details but short on insight. It seemed to people at the time that they “had no choice,” that

A Century Unique In All History 
This last century is unique in all of history, as it tells the story of the first time in all of history, that gold has been completely and officially abandoned as the backing for money. We have said before that maintaining control of the financial systems is the largest single challenge facing the leaders of the world today. This is evidenced in the last two years by the record number of summits and emergency meetings of organizations such as IMF, World Bank, World trade Organization, and the G7. The Plunge Protection Team and Exchange Stabilization Fund have been working overtime, while we have witnessed the setting up and convening of special sub committees of central banks and governmental policy makers, all dedicated to ensuring stability of financial and capitol markets, at all costs.

  Gold and Silver as Standards of Value 
All the usurpation, and tyranny, and extortion, and robbery, and fraud, that are involved in the monopoly of money are practised, and attempted to be justified, under the pretence of maintaining the standard of value. This pretence is intrinsically a false one throughout. And the whole motive for it is to afford some color of justification for such a monopoly of money as will enable the few holders of gold and silver coins (or of such other money as may be specially licensed and substituted for them) to extort, in exchange for them, more of other men’s property than the coins (or their substitutes) are naturally and truly worth. That such is the fact, it is the purpose of this article to prove.

Stock to Flow Ratio - A Primer
The importance of gold's stock to flow ratio is greatly underestimated. I first came across the concept in 2009 at a lecture by Professor Antal E. Fekete in Szombathely, Hungary. It fascinated me and the more I looked at its implications, the more amazed that I became, not least of which because my search engine couldn't locate a single piece of writing on the subject anywhere. The stock to f

  Opening the mint to gold and silver - then and now 
Some people think that one of the fundamental institutions of the 19th century should be restored; I will single out Great Britain as the great leader embracing this institution. This institution was the free minting of gold practiced by Great Britain in its heyday of growth, world economic and financial power. Under this system, any owner of gold bullion could take his bullion to the Royal Mint and have it minted into coins containing the same amount of gold as provided to the Mint by the owner of the bullion delivered. This was done at no cost to the owner of bullion as a government service to the economy.

Interest and Discount
According to Adam Smith “there are two different ways in which capital may be employed so as to yield a revenue…to its employer…: circulating capital… and fixed capital.” As a first approximation may we just say that one source of credit has to do with fixed capital and its scarcity is measured by the rate of interest, while the other has to do with circulating capital and its scarcity is measured by the discount rate. Both rates are a market phenomenon: the former is regulated by the bond market, and the latter by the bill market. The rate of interest varies inversely with the propensity to save, and the discount rate varies inversely with the propensity to consume. A common mistake is to assume that the two propensities are antithetical, that is, when people save more they must consume less, and vice versa. This simplistic view ignores the propensity to hoard. In monetary

  Above-ground Gold Stock - How Much Is There and Why Does it Matter 
To understand the price of gold, the relevant supply is the total supply, not the new supply coming to market during the last year, week or month. The supply of gold consists of all of the supply that exists, and the relevant demand is the total demand, not the new demand coming to market during any year. For gold, there is always a large stockpile, and it never gets smaller. The vast majority of all the gold mined throughout human history still exists and is held either in bars, coins, or jewel

What You Always Wanted To Know About Gold* 
To say that the gold standard is not practicable is the same to say that honesty is not practicable, and Constitutions are made to be blithely ignored when convenient. The American Constitution, for example, mandates a metallic monetary standard for the United States in the clearest possible language. Opponents of the gold standard have never been able to muster up the moral fortitude to amend the Constitution so as to formalize the abolishing of the

The Fall and Rise of the Gold Standard
The gold standard can only be understood in the context of its clearing system, the bill market, trading real bills that move in a direction opposite to the flow of maturing goods to the final gold-paying consumer. Authors looking at the gold standard in isolation got a cock-eyed perspective. They have to invoke the quantity theory of money. The trouble is that, although it could explain linear changes, the quantity theory is helpless to explain non-linear phenomena such as dynamic changes. Whenever Mises talked about an “evenly

Gold Vanishing Into Private Hoards The Dollar: An Agonizing Reappraisal Part One 
The first thing to know about gold is that there is no alternative to it. Gold is the one and only commodity that has no marketing problem. There is no sales resistance and no competition to overcome. A gold reserve is as important for the nation as a bank account for the firm or individual. You keep part of your funds in idle bank balances in order to be ’liquid’ - to be able to pay your bills. Gold is the ultimate and unquestioned world-wide ’liquidity’.

"Sir, I would say, "Old World Order" to return. To understand/explain better: A very easy way to view this "order", would be to simply say that the American Experience is reaching the end! As we know, world war two left Europe and the world economy destroyed. Many thinkers of that period thought that the world was about to enter a decades long depression as it worked to rebuild real assets lost in the conflict. It was this war that so impacted the idea of looking positively toward the fu

How to protect one’s pension with Gold 
Greed is as old as human race. The last time it overtook husbandry in the realm of gold was over 35 years ago. In 1968 you could still buy gold at $35 per oz. The price had not changed for 35 years, since 1933, in spite of six years of depression; six years of World War II; six years of Marshall give-away; six years of Korean War; six years of escalation of the Vietnam War; the Berlin blockade, the Cuban missile crisis and other Cold War battles. All these historic events have contributed to monetary depreciation in the order of 75 percent. The gold mining industry was badly hurting. Yet it kept producing and selling gold at break-neck speed as if there was no tomorrow. The gold producers of the 1960s, just as those of today, were doped by the paper-money magic. They were coaxed out of their possession of a real asset to exchange it for a phony one. In giving it up at a ridiculous price they were unwitting stooges helping postpone the day when gold could break its shackles. Nobody then or since has bothered pointing out the folly of the inmate who would ingratiate himself to the jail-keepers by assisting them to make his yoke heavier.

Brent Cook's Primer on Reading Drill Result Press Releases
The Gold Report: After the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention in March, you said that the next 12?18 months could define how investors, speculators and mining companies perceive and value both the junior and major mining sectors. That was before the volatility of mid-April. With higher production costs being the new normal, what percentage of miners can make money at the current gold price? Brent Cook: That is a tough call because companies use different methods to repo
