  Gold Bullion 
Gold bullion is a bulk form of the precious metal used for trading on commodity markets. Gold bullion is usually cast into ingots or coins.  Gold bullion, a form of gold used to make trading easy, gets its value from the relative rarity of the metal itself. Value of gold bullion is further determined by the mass and purity of the coin or ingot. Most gold bullion is issued at 99.9% purity, although some goes up to 99.999% purity. Bullion is graded by "Troy ounce" which defines the weight of gold

US Mint Bullion-Coin Sales 5
Gold’s first new bull market since 2011 last year was overwhelmingly driven by stock investors flooding into gold ETFs.  Traditional physical bar-and-coin demand was actually quite weak, falling considerably year-over-year.  Nevertheless, it’s still important to stay abreast of classic gold and silver investment demand.  One key microcosm of that comes in the form of the US Mint’s sales of its popular American Eagle coins. When American investors buy physical

I am writing this article for the gold and silver bullion purchaser who wants the comfort, the insurance of owning some gold and silver in what are very troubling times.

The World’s largest Precious Metals Refineries
There are many precious metals refineries throughout the world, some local to their domestic markets, and some international, even global in scale. Many, but by no means all, of these refineries are on the Good Delivery Lists of gold and/or silver. These lists are maintained by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) and they identify accredited refineries of large (wholesale) gold and silver bars that continue to meet rigorous proficient standards of refining and assaying, and that are, at

Fake gold and silver coins 'flooding' market
In these uncertain economic times, you don't have to be a miser to consider putting some of your money into precious metals, and gold and silver coins are an easy way to do that. But this increased demand for bullion coins -- like the American Eagle, South African Krugerrand, and Canadian Maple Leaf -- has created a golden opportunity for forgers. Counterfeit coins are "flooding the market at an astonishing rate," and compromising the investments of collectors, according to the American Numismat

Racing to Buy Gold Stop!
Stop, breathe, think before buying gold. Because 'how' matters as much as 'when'... BUYING GOLD has suddenly returned as a trend, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. Searches for "bullion" online rose 77% in the last week, according to Google Trends. The price has now risen over 18% against the British Pound so far in 2016, jumping Thursday to its highest price for UK investors since September 2013 at £873 per ounce. Whether or not this surge in prices continues, new investors should bew

US Mint Bullion-Coin Sales 4 
Recent years have seen countless claims that gold and silver prices have to head far lower, implying demand is low or supply is high.  But the actual data continues to prove this false, showing precious-metals bearishness is rooted in sentiment and not fundamentals.  One fascinating microcosm of gold and silver demand comes in the form of the US Mint’s sales of its popular American Eagle bullion coins.

It’s Friday afternoon, and global stocks have had a very, very bad day. After the Chinese stock market closed for the weekend, its regulators, in their omniscient wisdom, decided to increase the amount of permitted “shortable” stocks. Consequently, Chinese stock futures fell 7%, pulling the rest of the world falling sharply as well. With that pleasant introduction, I’ve been asked to comment on Harry Dent’s latest “deflation” warning; which I plan to enthusiastically discuss below. But first, a

True Cost of Gold Coin Bar "Sales"
Gold coins & bar "discounts" compared against vaulted wholesale bullion... EVEN with this week's sharp drop, gold and silver price action remains deadly boring, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. If you are going to make or extend your precious metals investment, this low volatility and quiet trading might prove a good time to do it. Especially at these lower prices. Sadly for UK buyers however, one of Bullionvault's home competitors...a leading gold coin and bar retailer...just ended w

It's Not (Just) About The Gold 
Since the beginning of recorded history, the lure of gold has drawn men and women to it like a moth to flame. A Greek traitor told the Persian King Xerxes about a secret goat trail that would enable his personal bodyguard, The Ten Thousand Immortals, to outflank and defeat King Leonidas and the 300 Spartans in the mountain pass at Thermopylae. The asking price was his weight in gold, which the Persians granted to him and then buried him with it. Legend speaks of Midas, whose fascinatio

Public Service Announcement 
Beware of fake gold being sold on eBay. I received this email from a reader yesterday: Hi FOFOA, I purchase the vast majority of my gold coins and (in-assay only) bars on eBay. I have had much success. eBay buyer protection has saved my butt on occasion, not just for gold purchases. I authenticate every coin I buy. For every purchase, regardless of source, I use a Fisch for Eagles & Krugerrands and a jeweler's scale and calipers for other coins, plus a detailed visual comparison to known-gen

  Do Western Central Banks Have Any Gold Left Part III - Sprott
By: Eric Sprott Recent dramatic declines in gold prices and strong redemptions from physical ETFs (such as the GLD) have been interpreted by the financial press as indicating the end of the gold bull market. Conversely, our analysis of the supply and demand dynamics underlying the gold market does not support this interpretation. Many major buyers of gold are adding to their stocks, while at the same time supply is flat or even decreasing, compounding an already vast imbalance. Fo
