  Death Penalty for Debasing Currency: US Coinage Act of 1792 
As most of you know much of our current law was based on English case law. Hence, this was the Royal Mint's disposition of counterfeiters and forgers. Themethods employed for carrying out the death penalty are appropriate eventoday.: SOLOMON IDSWELL, Deception > forgery, 20th May 1795. Reference Number:t17950520-26 Offence: Deception >forgery Verdict: Guilty Punishment: Death Are Counterfeiting and Treason any less painful a crime upon the people today? We vote "Nay!" Hasn't our central government stolen real money by bank note deception and broken sworn promises ofredeemability from the American people and their foreign trading partners? And haven't our current leaders and appointees past and present lied knowingly to perpetuate thesecrimes ?Tothis,we vote "Yea!" onboth charges.

For bullion, refiners and dealers use either percentages or fineness (fine being another word for pure). The table below shows the most common purities. In wholesale investment

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

Mint Sales Plunge Throughout 2017
If one is interested in picking up some numismatic coins that have the potential to carry some heavy premiums in the years to come 2017 could be one the years to add to your stack. Not all coins produced during 2017 will command high premiums in the future, and maybe not a single one will, but if one looks through the offerings at the US Mint, Perth Mint and Royal Canadian Mint I know there will be some diamonds in the rough that should be outstanding additions to any stack and come with the add

Tokenization of Gold
The Blockchain technology enables tokenization of gold. What does it mean for the precious metals market? Usually, investors consider precious metals and cryptocurrencies as substitutes, as the value of both asset classes depends on the level of faith in the national fiat currencies. However, a few cryptocurrencies backed by gold exist, potentially creating some synergies. For example, there is OneGram, which is a sharia-compliant cryptocurrency backed by gold. It means that each token is backed

Gold shops: Coming to a high street near you
At Baird & Co.'s gold refinery, boss Nick Hammond is sorting through a tray of scrap jewellery. Bracelets, necklaces, a horse pendant (called a "banger" because it is hollow, and could explode under high heat) and a military medallion dated 1895 are all destined for the furnace. "It's sad, but we can't hold them back -- they all go in the pot," Hammond says, pointing out that Baird would have paid around L30,000 to pawn brokers and other dealers for the contents of the tray.

CryptoGold and Thieving Banksters - Rory Hall
In order for the central bank Ponzi scheme of fiat currency to work, especially on a global basis, the central banks learned early on that gold was the enemy of their scheme and, therefore, must be eliminated from the monetary system. The first real step was Executive Order 6102 in 1933. This was just 20 years after the hijacking of the United States. This was one of the major first steps to eliminating competing currencies with the Federal Reserve Note / U.S. dollar owned by and sold to
