  The idea of sound money was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties
It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments. Ideologically it belongs in the same class with political constitutions and bills of rights.

Silver and Gold Guarantee Freedom 
Silver and gold are not merely valuable commodities, investments, and media of exchange. More importantly, they are key "checks and balances" in America's legal and political institutions. The fight against the use of silver and gold as money that has been waged by bankers and rogue politicians since the 1870s as to silver and the 1930s as to gold -- and will intensify as fiat currencies collapse throughout the world -- is ultimately directed against America's national independence, her constitutional government, and every common American's individual liberty and prosperity.

Mineral Specimen Collecting: Silver and Gold
It is anticipated that those readers interested in the Precious Metals, Gold and Silver, and the PM share market, may find interest in these anecdotal tales of mines and minerals, and enjoy the beauty of one of nature's hidden treasures; --- mineral specimens. --- Note: Gold and Silver are metallic elements. They are also minerals when they occur in pure form in nature, and are then described as native gold and native silver.

  Frequently Asked Questions on Silver 
Which kind of silver is best? I like the cheapest form of silver available. I have never liked Silver Eagles, because the premium is always too high. I've always bought the "generic rounds", because you get more silver for your dollar. I also like the 100 oz. bars, when they are cheaper, which they are today.

Investing in Mining Stocks - 24hgold
Little Faith, Not much Hope and Too much Charity
If we want to encourage the transfer of gold from those who wish to dispose of it to those who wish to acquire it, we must at all costs avoid a repeat of the state of affairs which existed in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In those days, when the purchasing power of gold reached unprecedented levels, we never read about Central Banks lending or selling their gold. Mining companies did not sell forward for fear of the price going higher. Now they are selling forward for fear of the price going lower! A self-fulfilling policy if ever they was one. But what really helps to keep the gold price affordable is the powerful message that the producers broadcast about their own perceptions as to the direction of the price. No one in his right mind would sell gold forward if he thought the gold price was going to rise. Investors in gold and gold shares have received that message, loud and clear, and have acted accordingly.

Gold coins: The Vienna Philharmonic
The Vienna Philharmonic has been minted by the Austrian Mint "Münze Österreich AG" since 1989. After Great Britain, Austria was the second state in Europe to start producing an official gold coin. Until 1991 the coin was minted in one ounce and quarter ounce versions. Due to the great sales success, a tenth-ounce coin was released in 1991, which was followed by a half-ounce in 1994.

  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.

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?

  The US Constitution and Money 
This article outlines what the U.S. Constitution’s clauses and references to money mean. It examines constitutional money from a legal perspective. It does not examine money and banking from an ethical, economic, or political point of view. The idea is simply to set down in the clearest terms possible what kind of money is legal in the U.S., according to the Constitution, and what kind of money is not.

Lithium ABC's
The world's future energy course is being charted today because of the ramifications of peak oil and a need to reduce our carbon footprints. A whole new industry - a global wide automotive and industrial lithium-ion battery industry - is going to be built. As a result of lithium-ion battery demand for hybrid-electric and electric cars the increase in demand for lithium carbonate is expected to increase four-fold by 2017.
