The Coin Design
The beautiful and classic design of the American Gold Eagle bullion coin is
captured in the graceful Striding Liberty, first created by Augustus Saint
Gaudens for the 1907-1933 $20 U.S. Double Gold Eagle gold coin. The reverse
depicts a nest of American eagles signifying the strength and security of
Only gold mined in the United States, by law, is used in the minting of
American gold Eagle coins. The 1986 Gold Eagle marked the introduction of this
world renowned Gold American Eagle bullion coin series. It has since become the
world's most widely traded gold bullion coin.
On occasion I switch the television channel
from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying. After tuning in I get a
deep sense of despair and foreboding for our nation.
The most important and vital thing for
the left is giving cash to the people.
They are delighted to witness the increase of free healthcare, disability
payments, food stamps,
housing subsidies, and all the other social welfare benefits. They
are unable to see the damage it delivers to the recipients. Whole
metropolitan areas, particularly Detroit, that once prospered have deteriorated
into decaying eyesores inhabited with shambling hulks of drug-addicted drones.
These people are no longer employable. They have become incompetent
and weak and the liberals are not able to realize that it is their particular
doing. In addition to this, every single new wave of subsidized citizens
promises to inevitably end up in the same behavioral sinkhole - if not them,
their children who are going to rapidly discover ways necessary to adopt the
We hear only that the bad economic
conditions is pushing the expansion of governmental handouts. We never
hear that the subsidized life is easier, softer and without struggle. Most
of us do not hear that it is the reverse of ambition, challenge and growth. This
hex to our nation’s character goes hand-in-hand with the debt and inflation of
the dollar that is needed to pay for it. We are debasing the U.S. dollar paying
for government financial aid. This easy cash transforms a nation into
speculators and spenders instead of producers and savers. Toss in the
government’s other sorts of socialist schemes and you have the nasty mess we
are in. It’s getting a whole lot worse. The society along with the
people are growing coarser. The productive men and women will soon be in
the minority if they are not already. The United States has lost its way
and the left so extensively chronicled in the media and presented by the
economic ignoramuses on CNBC bears sole culpability. The liberal agenda is
the blueprint for national ruin. At some point the free lunch will have to
disappear. The government will no longer be able to provide free lunch
because they will not be able to afford it. A bankrupt nation with a
bankrupt culture; that is exactly what these types of so-called progressives
have burdened all of us with. Their out of control social sympathy has delivered
us permanent turmoil and the erosion of our good fortune and greatness. They
are the architects of our ruin.
By the way. Vote next Tuesday.
Many ineligible non-citizens, without identification; will be doing exactly
that. Many liberal-biased citizens interested in keeping the "free money
programs alive" will be following the old Chicago political saying:
"Vote Early and Vote Often". No I.D. needed voting must end due to the
obvious abuses. Everything isn't racism. Sometimes it is common sense. In 2014,
no U.S. citizen is prevented from getting state issued I.D. based on race. If
someone to dumb to get an I.D., perhaps they are to dumb to vote.
over six years ago a good chance existed that something terrible lurked on
the financial horizon. Like a great white shark rising from the deep, it moved slowly towards
the shallows. Unsuspecting investors floated innocently like swimmers on the
tide. The brute rose from the depths. The victims playfully splashed
unaware. No one suspected, no one prepared.
late 2008, the average investor thought more about making money than about
focused on gains or income and paid little attention to the threat of losing
in a major way. Virtually no one prepared against the risk of great loss.
They belittled the idea of a crash or panic that bankrupts the institutions
and wipes them out personally. We were rolling along for so long without a
major financial disaster that most people no longer considered such an event
possible. After all, just like arrogant teenagers who have it all
figured out, we felt that we were much smarter than the folks of days gone
you have ever started a business and tried to make a profit, you know how
tough it is to make money.
It can take years of work and struggle to get into the black. Conversely, it
used to be quite easy, with seemingly good advice, to make money investing
in real estate and stocks & bonds. Since the end of the Second World War

harvest these gains in the booming real estate market. Things obviously have

have been the Golden Age of investment. It's been a period of relatively
worry-free financial affairs. Prior to this sixty-plus-year period the U.S.
was racked by depressions, panics and hyperinflations. In fact, throughout
history, panics, hyperinflations and depressions ruined countries and
currencies and turned the rich into poor. In other words, the past six
decades of investment bliss are the exception rather than the rule.
American's had come to believe that we are immune from true economic
until late 2008, chances are, you've probably never worried much about
grievous financial loss in the markets. You've never experienced such an
animal. The widespread belief that the government won't let anything bad
occur, without fixing it, used to reinforce the view that you are immune to
destructive losses. Consequently, you probably took no measure at all to
protect yourself against the financial plagues that have regularly afflicted
mankind, and yes, the United States.
Not only were many individuals heavily invested in stocks and mutual funds,
not to mention real estate that may have been bought at high prices, they
have their entire retirement plan committed to equities and real estate and
the belief that these are long-term investments that will always payoff.
This may be a true statement as long as you add to the statement…”If I
only live long enough…” It took until 1954 after the crash of 1929 to
break even. Maybe you are young enough and healthy enough that you KNOW you
have 24 years left. Even if you do... 24 years is to ling to wait to break
even... in anybodies book.
Many added leverage to the mix and borrowed additional money for stocks and real
estate. Others ran down cash balances and savings to buy "investments"
that in hindsight should of included un-defaultable gold. Typically, any decline
in stock prices used to trigger additional buying rather than any serious
concern about future losses. Virtually all of today's investors are on the
defensive. Many have been wiped out or are seeing declines of fifty percent or
more. Most who do NOT own gold are scared. Most people, including most talking
heads on financial news networks see gold as a charming trinket good for a
wedding band or a nice necklace.
Nothing can be further from the truth. Gold has out performed every asset since
2000 and has been recognized as real money since before recorded history.
eighty-five years ago the country crashed into a depression that lasted over
twelve years, followed by 3 ˝ years of World War. Severe stock market
losses and plunging real estate values wiped out the wealth of investors and
illustrated that it's entirely possible to lose everything.
Government intervention during The Great Depression made things worse, not
better. Many Americans suffer from the mistaken belief that the scoundrels
in Washington will save the day if everything turns to horse manure. QE 1
and QE 2 did not fix anything.
Whenever such an event begins in earnest, fear turns into panic, losses jump
quickly and values evaporate. Many 'market crash virgins' have never experienced
such a crisis. Many turn into nasty, snarling lunatics, terrified by the
Some will go out the window. Others will huddle "shell shocked" in
their homes until the sheriff shows up to throw them out on the street, unable
to meet their financial obligations committed to in better times.
A crash can only come when people don't expect it. They can't or won't see it
coming. (How many saw this one coming five years ago?) If they anticipated a
bust they would have prepared for it, taken measures to prevent it, and thus
stopped it from happening. A crunch means that very few people were defensive
with their money. For example, if people kept a percentage of their assets in
gold, the stock market would be less prone to extremes.
As it did in 1929 when it evidenced a full-blown depression, another credit
contraction can cause great stock crash can lead to the same kind of plunge in
Confidence fades fast in a financial crisis. Consumer spending slows way down
and additional savings seem impossible to many. With the amount of credit card
debt, consumer loans and extremes of leverage throughout the financial system a
stiff recession can turn nasty.
A credit meltdown can occur. That's when people lose their jobs, can't pay their
bills, have their cars repossessed and lose their homes. That's when the banks,
the auto industry and a host of other companies “To Big to Fail” stand in
line looking to the government to bail them out. (General Motors has a new nick
name: "Government Motors") The line will be long and humbling to the
chief executives of these companies who will have to skip their corporate jets
when traveling to Washington D.C. hat in hand. Corporate Executives will have
their compensation packages, by government mandate, reduced to a fraction of
free market levels. Top executives will move to free market firms leaving their
"government controlled" positions to be taken over by less talented
executives willing to be kicked around by the heavy handed government business
czars. Business will suffer. Ford refused government money and today thrives
with talented executives still leading the firm.
average guy, just a while ago, believed corporate and government bonds,
treasury bills and money market funds were absolutely safe and looked at
them as a hedge against an economic crash. Real estate, in the early
two-thousands, made millionaires out of many folks who, if it weren't for
them being in a real estate bull market, may have been asking you "Do
want fry's with that?" There is an old saying on Wall Street:
"Market direction is market genius".
CORPORATIONS became, like drug addicts needing a fix,
dependent on easy credit to keep many mismanaged companies going.
Once easy money was gone, dozens of huge retailers
dropped like horse-flies after a good shot of RAID. They had been dependent for
so long on easy credit to keep their ships afloat that when the unexpected
contraction of credit developed, their ability to stay in business disappeared.

ago. The economic contraction began raising bankruptcies and undermining the
bond market. Defaults have been few and far between in America since the end of
the second war but they were epidemic in the Thirties with far more conservative
Even government securities can turn sour. Throughout history those governments
that spent wantonly and borrowed recklessly, defaulted. The citizens of these
countries never got a warning bell. They were wiped out. In our modem era when
gold has no "official" role as money and nothing can put a brake on
monetary expansion the Central Bank can monetize any amount of debt. So rather
than default, the government can inflate the debt away. In either case the
bondholder gets killed and the average American who works and saves in dollars
has their purchasing power stolen as the U.S. dollar is watered down. The rise
of the price of gold when measured against dollars is not a speculative fluke.
The dollar is losing value against the oldest currency in the world. GOLD
Since May of 2006 The Federal Reserve has stopped
reporting the M3 or the actual supply of U.S. Dollars.
Most monetary economists, particularly those of the
"Austrian School" have observed the close relationship between money
supply and economic activity. When government inflates the money and credit
supply, interest rates at first fall. Businesses invest this "easy
money" in new production projects and a boom takes place in capital goods.
As the boom matures, businesses costs rise, interest rates readjust upward, and
profits are squeezed. The easy-money effects thus wear off and the monetary
authorities, fearing price inflation, slow the growth of or even contract, the
money supply. In either case, the manipulation is enough to knock out the shaky
supports from underneath the economic house of cards.
after decades of reporting the actual money supply, "The Fed"
decided that making public the actual money supply is not a good idea.
At the end of 2014 the U.S. National Debt is near Seventeen (17) TRILLION
dollars. In the last couple of months of 2008 the government and the privately
owned Federal Reserve increased cash and guarantees by over 7.5 TRILLION
dollars. We are living in a time that the money supply has to be inflated or the
economy will die. If you look back through history fiat money (not backed by
gold or silver) has 100% of the time failed in the end. The kids on Capital hill
and at the FED threw in the kitchen sink trying to prevent a financial meltdown.
Was it genius or desperation and luck?
It took until December 2008 before the government grudgingly admitted that
“Yes, we’ve been in a recession since December of 2007”.
If you look back through history fiat money ("money" not backed by
gold or silver) has 100% of the time, failed in the end.
How much notice do you think you are going to get if the government and the
FED lose control and a financial meltdown develops overnight? This is a
rhetorical question. The answer is: zero.
There is one thing you can do to protect yourself and
that is to buy gold and put your family and you on your own personal gold backed

all grown up hearing the word "inflation". Next time you hear
that word replace it in your mind with the term "currency
dilution". It's the classic case of adding water to the milk. You get a
lot of volume and very little nutritional value.
the near future, absent divine intervention, the Social Security program
will officially be in a deep, dark financial hole.
The government will have no choice but send the checks out to the retired
and disabled while steadily diluting the currency and than lying about it
with its annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) cost of living adjustment, as
they've been doing for nearly thirty years. One key thing they do to manipulate the CPI is to claim that if steak
becomes too expensive, people will eat hamburger. With a magic wand they
claim a decline in your living standard equals no inflation.
Let's take a harder look at this.
When the gold price climbed above the $850 high reached back in January 1980,
many proclaimed that the gold price was at a new ‘record’. That’s true of
course when gold’s exchange rate to the dollar is viewed in terms of nominal
dollars, but nominal dollars provide a distorted picture.
After all, everyone knows that because of inflation a dollar today purchases
much less than it did thirty-five years ago, so clearly, $850 today does not
have the purchasing power it did back then. The question therefore arises, what
price does gold have to reach in inflation-adjusted dollars to equal the
purchasing power of eight hundred fifty 1980-dollars?
The answer to this question depends upon which Consumer Price Index is used to
calculate the inflation adjusted gold price. The two alternatives are the US
government’s CPI or the CPI provided by John Williams of www.ShadowStats.com
These two different CPI measures provide very different inflation adjusted gold
prices. So which CPI should we use?
The ShadowStats CPI eliminates the changes made by the US government since
the early 1980s to its own CPI measure. In other words, the ShadowsStats CPI is
the same one the US government used to calculate inflation while Jimmy Carter
The changes made by the government to its CPI were clearly introduced to
lessen reported CPI inflation. A lower inflation rate reduces the
cost-of-living increases the US government makes to welfare and Social Security
recipients, thereby reducing its budget deficit. Welfare and Social Security
recipients suffer the consequences. Their purchasing power is reduced because
the payments they receive do not keep up with the real rate of inflation.
An example will be useful to illustrate this loss of purchasing power. Let’s
assume that a recipient received $850 per month from the US government in
January 1980. Using the US government’s CPI, that recipient is today receiving
$2,310. However, if the US government had not made any changes to the way it
calculates CPI, the recipient would today be receiving $6,255. This difference
can be seen in the following chart, which presents the January $850 gold price
adjusted for inflation using both CPI’s.
There are a couple of important conclusions from the
above chart. First, gold at its present price today is still very cheap.
In other words, it is a long way from the purchasing power an ounce of gold
achieved in January 1980. Second, both measures on the above chart show that the
dollar is losing purchasing power every month. So if gold in the future were to
reach a $6,255 gold price, the inflation between now and then would require gold
to reach an even higher price to equal the purchasing power it had in January
Rather than reduce inflation, the US government instead shot the messenger.
By fiddling with the CPI, the US government wants us to believe that inflation
is not as bad as it really is, which is the same strategy it has pursued with
the other important inflation messenger – gold.
Government interventions to cap the gold price prevent the gold barometer from
alerting everyone that inflation is a growing menace. As a result what we are
currently experiencing is the premium for gold coins are rising independent of
the spot gold price. There are powerful financial forces at work under the
world’s central banks and governments to suppress the price of gold. In our
opinion, the last thing governments and the central banks need or want is bank
customers fleeing the banks and hoarding the ultimate real money… gold. This
exact behavior (hoarding) is what made Franklin Roosevelt, in one of his first
official acts, close the banks for a week and compelled the turning in of gold
When the day comes that the U.S. Dollar is exposed for the watered down relic of
it former self, the lines will be long to buy gold and silver.
Even though gold is trading at a record high in terms of nominal dollars, the
real gold price is far below the old January 1980 record when adjusted for
inflation. Gold is still a good value, and more importantly, government
interventions have kept gold cheap, thus enabling us to buy gold at gold prices
far less than would be the case if the government wasn’t intervening to
suppress the price of gold. A window of opportunity exists today to use your
dollars to accumulate undervalued gold. ____________________________________________
U.S. Government does not consider the "Social Security Trust Fund"
a liability on its annual accounting. Calling it a "Trust Fund" is
a Washington double-talk.
All funds collected from paychecks for the "Trust Fund" are
immediately placed in the general fund and spent on current expenditures.

"Retirement Trust Fund", and spent the money as fast as it came in
and then not even carry the liability on their books as a future

at affordable levels.
The yellow metal depends on no institution or government
for value. Gold exists outside the mainstream and depends on none of the same
things that real estate; stocks, bonds and banks depend on. Gold means
independence. Gold allows the citizen to escape total reliance on the
state-sponsored financial system. It's a perfect asset for ultimate protection,
no matter how dicey things get. Gold's value may be affected by the U.S.'s
economic performance, but far less than other assets. In fact, if the mainstream
financial system breaks down gold makes up because people turn to gold in a
crisis. Gold does best when everything else suffers.
people have their assets within the Wall Street - Washington financial axis.
Many are totally dependent for retirement benefits and income from this
alliance of government, business and central bank. It's where nearly
everybody keeps his or her money. That's because the people believe the
government will always protect and take care of them. The government wants
to foster economic growth, prosperity, security and investment profits. But
the government also takes strong measures to improve education, reduce
crime, improve race relations and eliminate poverty, to mention but a few of
it's notorious failures. In other words, the government's gross ineptitude
and rank political motivations make the outcome of their insurance,
influence and intervention in the markets unworthy of anyone's total trust
and reliance for their financial security.

the case. What happens if the stock market sinks precipitously and many
people lose everything? What happens if a stock crash ushers in a
depression? What happens if consumer defaults get out of control? What
happens if our credit system collapses and corporations go bankrupt? What
happens if municipal governments fail? What happens if the brokerage firms
fail? What happens if the mutual fund companies fail? What happens if the
government guarantees can't be honored? What happens if banks fail? What
happens in an extreme financial crisis fostered by too much credit, too much
speculation, too much consumption and too much government? History and
nature make clear that it can happen. A price must be paid for excess. You
should not trust all of your assets to Wall Street and Washington. Make
yourself independent of these forces.
protect yourself against the worst contingency you must take some of your
assets out of the mainstream system. If the system goes down you can
lose everything. Understand how much you will lose. Put at least 15 percent
of your net worth into gold. Considering just how bad things are now, you
probably should place more than 15% into undefaultable gold. Reduce
the gold to your physical possession (no paper, no stocks, no storage). Keep
it in a safe at home or part of it in a safe deposit box at your bank.
(Preferably at home in a safe or buried deep in your backyard, after all, if
the banks fail do you really want to have to wait for them to open
again to get your gold?)
Once you do this you have an asset outside the system that depends on no
government or corporation for its value.
This percentage of your assets is safe, certain and secure. Gold protects
you from a failure of the financial system. You can never lose everything
with gold no matter what kind of financial holocaust unfolds. In fact you

queen, in a crisis.

History of The
European Monetary Union of The 1800's
In 1865, in response to the growing influence over trade and commerce of the Zollverein (the unification of the German States), Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Finland entered into what became known as the Latin Monetary Union.
The goal of the union was to build an uniform decimal weight system for all coinage, modeled after the 20 Franc in use in the time in France, to facilitate free-trade. All coins, though not always denominated in francs, were to comprise the unique weight of.1867 ounces pure gold per 20 units of currency.
The Latin Monetary Union stayed intact until 1922, coming to an end within the aftermath of World War I. Despite its dissolution, several states continued to mint coinage by this specific weight into the modern period.
Antique European Gold Coins...
gold coins that are at least 100 years old are a great way for you to
own gold. They give you distinct advantages not found in modern
issued bullion coins.
Why Are European
Minted Gold Coins Such A Great Way For You to Own Gold?
1. They are one of
the most desirable types of gold coins for you to own.
It was a criminal act to own gold bullion for over forty years in the
U.S. from May, 1933 until January 1st, 1975. In 1933, President
Franklin Delano Roosevelt under Executive Order, invoking the 1917 Trading
with the enemy act demanded U.S. citizens turn in their hard
earned gold. Coins of "special collector
interest" were exempt from this forced turn-in of gold.
The official price of gold was 20.67 greenbacks an ounce in May of
1933. In early 1934 the "Official" price of gold was raised
by FDR to $35. Coin collectors who owned gold did very well in 1935.
No one else legally owned any gold bullion with the exception of
personal jewelry, gold for certified industrial use, and the U.S.
Have you ever been sued? It may just be a matter of time.
Americans sue each other for ridiculous reasons. The burglar may sue
you for injuries sustained by bites from your big guard dog
The town drunk may fall over in your yard, break his leg and then sue
you for millions. After winning his lawsuit, he can start drinking
"the good stuff" in his new house that once was yours.
Old European gold coins
can be acquired by you in absolute privacy.
Private from any public records.
No public records and they are not reportable to the I.R.S. when you
buy or when you sell. It's important you keep all the records
you may require for tax reasons.
3. They currently sell for a small premium over their gold content.
The bottom line:
They'll protect your wealth
They're genuine antique gold coins being over 100 years old
They're a great legacy, truly a meaningful way to pass wealth to your
They're Historic. Most
of these coins have been secreted away on the European continent since
the 1800's. They remained hidden through the devastation of two World
Wars. Some of these coins may have been used to buy safe passage from
"harm's way". (No ones taking checks, bank cards or cash
from a fallen government in a war zone.)
Older European's who
survived World War II, have deep respect for gold.
They know first hand that "Gold can deliver salvation". THEY
KNOW that gold will save your butt when all hell breaks out either
economically, or when an unthinkable military attack occurs.
gold coins currently sell for a small premium over their gold content.
am afraid that one day the government will indeed call gold in. Gold
bullion will be subject to government confiscation. ...This is the one
big advantage to numismatic (antique coins of special interest)
gold...It is an idiosyncrasy of governments that although they may
prohibit ownership of gold in any form, they are reluctant to touch
collections of numismatic gold coins...
Today, there are some 49 countries which forbid ownership of gold by
their citizens, but they do allow holding gold coins for numismatic
purposes. Even the former Soviet Union and Eastern European countries
tolerated the acquisition of numismatic gold coins. So these are the
only gold holdings that could be kept in your safety deposit box
without fear of confiscation."
Franz Pick- Economic Historian/ Economist
FIVE REASONS YOU
SHOULD BUY NOW
1) Low Premium- Currently these coins have low premiums over
their gold value. The premiums have doubled in the last few months.
The premiums have been higher in the past.
2) Affordable- Antique
European gold coins still appear to be reasonably priced. Their
smaller size make them highly liquid.
Many gold experts feel
that gold is cheap relative to other assets.

safety. Considering that the U.S economy is suffering from confusion
related to ObamaCare and general mismanagement, this is an excellent
time for you to buy a safety net for your family.
European Gold coins come in extremely fine condition. This means
everything is bold and clear on these antique gold pieces, similar to

Ten times a year the Governors of the Central

Question. If the banker's bank historically
keeps its own affairs in GOLD FRANCS, is it wise for you to consider keeping
some of your assets in gold francs to help maintain your own economic viability?
Consider ordering some today at our low
prices. They are reasonably priced at close to their melt value and are an
excellent, private way for you to own gold.
French Napoleon III 20
franc gold coin Minted 1852 - 1870
Actual Gold Content: .1867 troy ounce
Napoleon III (1808-1873) was the nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte and Emperor of France from 1852 to 1870. Napoleon III strove to recover the power of France to the lofty stature achieved under his famous uncle, but his rule was undermined by a sequence of political blunders including rifts with the Vatican over lands and the French business community over his free trade policy with England. In the War of 1870, in part because of the political disunity at home, he met defeat in the superior tactics of the Prussians near Sedan. Within days, the diminished Napoleon III was unseated by a fresh revolution. Failing to recover the previous power of Napoleonic France he left France for England where he fell ill and died. Some historians claim from a "broken heart".
French Angel 20 franc gold coin Minted 1871 - 1898

Of all the timeless European gold coins, the French Angel, minted from 1871 to 1898, is one of the most
The legend of the "Lucky Angel" began in the mid1790s during the French Revolution.
Augustus Dupre, the coin's designer, legend is that he bribed a criminal magistrate and was granted a reprieve from a date with the guillotine by the Lucky Angel coin in his own pocket.
In 1871, the style was resurrected for the gold French 20franc.
Switzerland Helvetia 20 franc gold coin Minted 1897 - 1930
Actual Gold Content: .1867 troy ounce
Due to its key geographical location, Switzerland has been a commercial and banking facility for countless decades. It's renowned for its function in the gold market where "the gnomes of Zurich" are thought to carry much power. The "gnomes" made their very first dash in the gold market when they convinced South Africa that Swiss lenders would become a better market for the gold in relation to the Birmingham variety. European gold company instantly adopted the South Africa lead. Known gold expert Timothy Green declared, "Gold is as much part of Europe since the Alps and skiing."
The Swiss 20-franc Helvetia is referred to informally since the "Vreneli" produced from "Verena" that is Switzerland's comparable to the Unites States' Lady Liberty. Patterned by Francoise Engli, this female in the obverse of the gold coin with the word "Helvetia" written above her
hair. When the Roman Empire extended northward into Gaul throughout the 2nd millennium B.C., the Helvetii were the dominant tribe within the region, and consequently Europe became known to the Romans as Helvetia. On the
back (reverse) is a image of the Swiss Cross surrounded by a shield, lying on an oak part.

Kings are much scarcer than most of the European gold
coins we trade in bulk. A scant 7.8 million were minted,
all years combined, and most have been lost to
circulation and melting. This exceptional scarcity
provides the potential for increased premiums in a
rising gold market. But our Dutch Kings are trading for
nearly the same price as Angels, making them one of the
best values in European gold coins.

Dutch 10 Guilder Gold Coins are comprised of .1947 of
a troy ounce of gold. These nearly one fifth ounce gold coins have a
purchasing premium of less than modern American Gold Eagles in the 1/2,
1/4 and 1/10 sizes. All are dated from the late 1800 to the early 1900's
(Dates our option). These classic 10 guilder gold coins are 90% pure
gold with a 10% copper/silver alloy added for durability. (This is the
same gold/alloy composition ratio seen in historical U.S. gold coinage.)
The coins come in extra-Fine (EF) condition to about- uncirculated (AU)
"Today, much of
Europe shares a common currency, the Euro (€). But this is really nothing new.
Back in the days of the international gold standard, countries including France,
Switzerland, Belgium, Greece and Italy shared a common gold measure."
The 20-franc and 20 Lira,
each containing .1867 ounce pure gold are traded “dealer to dealer”
generically. It is common to see retail dealers “talk up” one coin over the
other. The truth is, in our experienced opinion, these coins should be bought
for their gold content and ultimately it just doesn’t matter if you get a 20
franc or 20 lire coin from France or Italy or any other country. Most 20 franc
coins meet the requirement of being pre-1933’. This arguably gives you a
“glorified bullion” coin that can be seen as a collectible coin rather than
a monetary bullion hoarding instrument. In the past when gold was illegal to own
from 1933 until January 1st, 1975, “collectors” were allowed to
keep their “collections” while monetary bullion holders were subject to
criminal and civil penalties from the Department of the Treasury if found to be
in possession of gold bullion.
simple truth is the government may never again compel bullion holders to turn
their gold in. Do you want to risk it? A desperate President and Treasury
Secretary can be like a drunken 800 pound gorilla… They feel they can do any
damn thing they want... and under the color of law and crisis... they can.
is simply that the possibility of another gold recall (a.k.a. confiscation) is
not going away. This possibility will continue to enhance the desirability of
owning these coins.
European Pre-1933 Gold
The majority of antique foreign (Euro-Gold)
meet the pre-1933 numismatic (collectible) criteria.
These coins are a terrific value especially when compared to fractional-sized
modern bullion coins and are the perfect choice when you consider the
possibility of gold confiscation.
These are the coins we deliver the most of
since they have low-premiums over their melt value, are sized about 1/5 to 1/4
troy ounce which makes them more negotiable. These antique gold coins are
internationally recognized, traded, and highly liquid. In short… they
represent great value and we feel they are the best choice for those who are
transferring a good amount of U.S. dollars into the safety of gold.
