    Also got a couple of their 1/10gram gold bills for kicks. I was pleasantly surprised to find a small piece of dark chocolate included. First time for that, if I die overnight better investigate that piece of chocolate I ate.

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken

    I sold an ounce of silver today for $150. I had gone to town to get parts for my operation and figured I'd see if gold/silver really were money. I tried trading gold/silver for a truck part but the girl at the desk was having none of that. The manager came out and asked e into his office after I paid for my part. He asked why I wanted to trade and I explained I just wanted to see if anybody would. He then asked to look at my trading material and I showed him 1/10th maples and 1 gram bars in the gold department. Then I showed him silver fro 10 ounce to 1 gram. He was quite interested but when I showed him the Marylin Monroe bar in 1 oz silver it was, "How much". Just show's that bullion can hold value somewhat and isn't easy to try and buy stuff with[I tried at 6 different places today with 0 results], but a numismatic piece of metal worth $21 can actually bring in 7 times that.

    Preserving your wealth with gold and silver

    I paid for my wife's diamond with bullion. I was lucky to have freed up a considerable amount of cash when the Canadian $ was at about a buck 3. Got a deal on the trade fees because where I worked. Picked up gold. Pure 24k 1 ounce bars. When he saw them his eyes dropped. He was more than happy to make a trade. I think his diamond cost was stagnant. Gold can be considerably more volatile. And it was on its way up. We made a trade I thought was equitable. On another note. More people should try to bargain and trade. Saves the taxes.

    Isn't buying coins more expensive than blocks? They need to get cost back from the dies, manpower, shipping, art work, etc etc, and then turn a profit. That spidey one is pretty though

    You can buy the paper. Saves on the handling fees of making the bars.

    Mint coins are more expensive, but they have pretty pictures. And as pitw showed, pretty pictures can sell.
    And it makes collecting/stacking more interesting.

    So, curious, why does a Canadian coin have an Australian bug on it ? They should have put one of those big hairy buggers that are native to Canadian basements.

    Might be because it's an Australian coin.
    It's hard to make an old phone get every word into focus.

    I'm considering placing in any marketplace and EE ads that I post something to the effect of "will take payment of equal value in verifiable silver or gold, at current spot price."
    I'd rather make a difference than a dollar.

    OK. I thought that was two of the same coins. One front, One back. It says Canada on the right one
