As a wise man once said – “If you always do what you’ve always done you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten” and as the Buddhist saying goes – “When the student is ready, the teacher appears”, so it is that the following four part series is offered for those desiring to take an intellectual interest in physical gold bullion. An interest that may perhaps lead you on a path to changing some of what you have always done.

Here is the link to the four part series about gold.

Competing Currencies and the Price of Gold | Precious Metals Blog

Ron Miller : June 3, 2012 2:50 am : Precious Metals, Uncategorized


Competing CurrenciesDependent upon the influence of the Ron Paul wing of the Republican Party, here is something to look for over the next three – to twelve months that if it happens could spark a significant rally in the price of gold – legislation allowing for competing currencies. That is – legislation to allow other forms of currency to compete with the paper US Dollar Federal Reserve Note. Should competing currencies  legislation actually become law the most likely competing currency to emerge is gold bullion. Even if legislation allowing for competing currencies is not introduced it is still very important for all savers to understand the concept of competing currencies as such a movement could emerge outside of the legislative process (more on this later).

Competing Currencies Could Result in Hyperbolic Increase in the Price of Gold

Currently only a very small percentage of the American public – perhaps less than one percent, actually own gold bullion coins or bars. Now just imagine the increase in demand for gold if it is allowed to compete side by side with paper money as a competing currency. Assuming one percent of the public is currently in the market buying gold, a five fold increase in demand for gold would result if just five percent of the public starts to buy gold. It is impossible to accurately predict the price of gold with a five fold increase in demand but the laws of supply and demand would say with certainty that the rise in the price of gold under these circumstances would be significant. And if ten, fifteen or twenty percent of the public starts to take an interest in buying gold, the price of gold could go hyperbolic.

Gold and Silver as “Off the Record” Competing Currencies

Competing currencies can emerge in one of two ways – voluntarily via legislation calling for  elimination of current legal tender laws such that gold and silver can also be used as money at current market value (e.g. $1650/$30 an ounce); or involuntarily should the public become so concerned about the devaluation of federal reserve notes that they hold onto them only long enough until they can trade them for a better storehouse of value – e.g. gold, silver, real estate etc. It is the view of this writer that as the sovereign debt crisis worsens and ultimately leads to concern over the long term survival of USD federal reserve notes, gold and silver will emerge as “off the record” competing currencies. In fact, gold and silver will emerge as a common and preferred form of savings as more and more savers convert their paper money savings into physical gold and silver bullion coins and bars.

Competing Currencies and Those Left Holding the Bag

Here’s something else to keep in mind as you ponder the purchase of gold and silver – ultimately, all debts are paid. Early movers to gold will be rewarded as later movers drive the price of gold substantially higher until such time as no one will sell their gold for paper. It is at this point where the final reconciliation of debt will take place – the paper dollar sovereign debt will be paid for by those holding the paper money that no one else wants – the paper money that is being created out of thin air even as you read this. You see, when paper money is created out of nothing to pay a paper money debt, those who hold it at the end when it becomes worthless are those who pay the debt. Pretty slick isn’t it?

As for legislation allowing for competing currencies, such as gold – unfortunately this is unlikely to happen. Why? Well, because to do so would force the politicians to face the reality that the gig is up as it will not take long for the public to catch on that the good money is the money that cannot be printed by the politicians and bankers in order to account for the debt that those left holding the paper money will pay. The best way to protect against the end game ending in disaster for you and your family is to convert some of your paper dollar savings (e.g. 10-25%) into physical gold bullion – sooner rather than later. What you do with the other portion of your savings is up to you and your financial adviser (of which I am not) – maybe you keep it in equities, maybe you buy some investment real estate property. The point is, the only asset class that has survived every historic calamity for the past 3000 years – wars, famines, revolutions and the rise and fall of empires,  are the precious metals – gold and silver bullion. We are at the precipice of a period of time where, if you do not own this physical asset class, you are at risk.

Liquidity and Fractional Ounce Gold Coins | Precious Metals Blog

Ron Miller : April 15, 2012 11:11 am : Precious Metals, Uncategorized

Fractional Ounce Gold Coins – No one can predict with absolute certainty the future price of gold, however measuring the value of gold in units of the diminishing value of paper dollars strongly suggests that gold will rise in price. Also, given that at most only about 2% of the public owns physical gold bullion, a doubling of demand to just 4% of the public would send the price of gold spiraling higher. And if just 10% of the public starts bidding for gold – all bets are off – come up with your own projection.

Fractional Ounce Gold Coins Offer Greater Liquidity

Fractional Ounce Gold Coins

Half Ounce American Gold Eagle

Point is, don’t overlook the value of adding fractional ounce gold coins to your physical gold holdings. Lets say as an example that gold reaches $4000/ounce and all your holdings are in ten ounce gold bars and you want to take $2000 from your gold holdings to buy the latest state of the art wide screen. Do you really want to cash out $40,000 worth of gold just to get $2000 in cash? Wouldn’t you like the option of owning some fractional ounce gold coins – lets say, ten half ounce American Gold Eagles?  Also, should gold go to $4000/ounce, or higher, the demand for fractional ounce gold coins will likely be much greater at this price level than at the current price level – driving the premium over spot for fractional ounce gold coins much higher than it is today.

Call for Free Consultation on Fractional Ounce Gold Coins

Anyway – something to think about. Hope this offers a helpful perspective. Call for free consultation on how to increase the liquidity of your gold bullion holdings with fractional ounce gold coins.

Retirement Savings Solution to the 7% Dilution | Precious Metals Blog

Ron Miller : April 5, 2012 12:46 am : Precious Metals, Uncategorized

Retirement Savings – The average annual rate of inflation in the decade of the 1970s was 7%. A repeat of this annual rate of inflation over the next five years means if you retire today with retirement savings of $500,000 your $500,000 would have the purchasing power of $356,493 in five years. In ten years your retirement savings of $500,000 would have the purchasing power of $254,174.

Gold Preserves the Purchasing Power of Retirement Savings

Retirement SavingsContrary to the loss of purchasing power as described in the above paragraph, over long periods of time gold has served to preserve purchasing power. The preservation of retirement savings via ownership of gold is illustrated very succinctly in this article from the “Austrian Classroom”. As is illustrated in this article, when measured in terms of gold ounces, the price of a new car has actually gone down between 1913 and 2011.

Hold Some Retirement Savings in a Precious Medals IRA

If you have retirement savings and are expecting it to last over a long period of time, perhaps even by way of passing some of it on to your children and grandchildren, you should consider diversifying some of your retirement savings into physical gold bullion. In fact, you may want to consider taking some of your retirement savings from your traditional stocks, bonds and cash based IRA and transferring it to a precious metals IRA. You may not know it, but the IRS allows you to own gold and silver bullion in a precious metals IRA.

If you are interested in taking some of your long term savings – retirement savings or non retirement savings, and purchase gold and silver bullion for its 3000 year track record of purchasing power, give us a call and we will answer all of your questions and help you get started.

Five Reasons to Own Gold Bullion | Precious Metals Blog

Ron Miller : March 26, 2012 10:57 pm : Precious Metals, Uncategorized

Gold Bullion refers to gold coins and bars whose value arises from the weight and purity of the gold used to produce them. Gold bullion is the purest and simplest way of owning and investing in physical gold. The American Gold Eagle and Canadian Gold Maple Leaf are examples of gold bullion coins. Here are five reasons to own gold bullion.

Gold Bullion1. The US Dollar loses purchasing power every year. Since 1971 the USD has lost 82% of its value while an ounce of gold bullion, when converted to USD, will purchase as much as or more than it would purchase in 1971. Is there any reason to expect anything different in the next 40 years?

2. Gold bullion is recognized as having value in every country in the world and as such can be converted to the paper currency of any country. Ounces of gold bullion really are liquid assets around the globe.

3. Gold bullion cannot be mass produced by any person or organization, including governments, so its value cannot possibly be diluted by an over supply.

4. You cannot convert Gold ETF shares to physical gold bullion. You purchase Gold ETF shares with paper dollars and you sell Gold ETF shares for paper dollars. In short, the only way out of a Gold ETF is via paper money. You are not diversifying  away from paper assets when you invest in a Gold ETF nor do you own gold bullion when you invest in a Gold ETF.

5. You, your family and future generations will never be poor if you own gold bullion and pass it on as part of your legacy. All paper assets eventually become worthless or are replaced by other paper assets that eventually become worthless. Among all of the  physical assets, none have the long lasting physical durability of gold bullion. Gold bullion is virtually indestructible and does not deteriorate with age. A one ounce gold coin from the Roman empire still weighs one ounce today.

Waiting to Buy Gold Bullion is Risky

Knowledge is powerful if you act on it. Now is the time to purchase gold bullion. If you wait until everyone else understands the compelling reasons to own gold bullion it will be too late. By that time the cost of an ounce of gold bullion will be much higher than it is today and those who own it may not want to sell it for paper money at any price.
