SS Central America

If you’re a history buff, you’ve maybe heard of an event called the Panic of 1857.Firstly, it had nothing to do with a disease or a shortage of toilet paper. It was an episode in history when the world economy took a dark turn for the worse. Not only did it affect those living in and working in eastern cities, but the simple  farmer on the Minnesota frontier. Suddenly, his cash crops became worthless, and his bank notes were only as valuable as the paper they were printed on. In addition, the enterprising settlers that depended on the growth of new settlements would see the surge of immigration to Minnesota slow to a lowly trickle.A great many factors went into this global depression, but in America it was due in large part to the … [Read more...]

An Outside Perspective on the Rare Coin – Third Party Comments on Crypto Traders Coming in the Rare Coin Market.

Hello from Texas,  We normally voice our own opinion here at From time to time it's nice to get perspective from a third party. Take a minute to read some excerpts from Charles Passy's 1.15.22 MarketWatch article. The beauty of this article is; it cements the fact that new money coming in puts pressure on a market that has a static supply of product. Which in turn helps prices go up. This is paper money turning into gold and silver-real value assets, not numbers on computer screens. With prices for some rarities in the millions of dollars, collectible coins are becoming a hot item The numismatic market has seen tremendous growth since the start of the pandemic, with cryptocurrency investors even … [Read more...]

Watch Me Pull A Massive Spending Bill Out Of My Hat!

Before the morning sun painted my Texas sky with an artistic hue of orange and yellow, I began the daily jaunt through my favorite sources of information and written opinions. I have a cache of writers and news sources I respect and trust to have the insight necessary to prepare for the coming barrage of questions I am faced with daily. I read both sides of opinions on arguments that shape our current landscape of societal and economic chaos.In trying to make sense and direction of the mass of information, true, and mis, I am reminded of a good friend of mine who is quite adept at the art of magic. One evening, after a casual display of his sleight of hand, in summary, he explained to me that the key to illusion was distraction. To … [Read more...]

Bank of America Calls Gold “Ultimate Store of Value” Raises Target Price to $3000 oz

The Fed cannot print gold , unlike every other asset. Bank of America has caught up with where we have been for the past few years. "As central banks and governments double their balance sheets and fiscal deficits, we up our 18 month target from $2000 to $3000/oz" We believe it's clear now that even Wall Streets agenda is lining up with all of those who have been calling that the biggest winner of the central bank insanity will be the "barbarous relic". Gold. Now with the Fed committing to do whatever it takes to prevent widespread panic and bankruptcies in the US, Congress injecting 5 plus trillion stimulus and economic growth at a crawl until there is a cure or vaccine inflation could rise even if GDP … [Read more...]

Rare Coin Market 2021….The New Normal?

The market is in a new never before seen state change. The pandemic has all but ended major coin shows. There has not been a major show in over a year. This is a huge change in the way we buy coins for our customers. Auction houses have taken the spotlight in placing important rarities with collectors via online sales. This is not a totally new phenomena but it is gaining more and more traction. These sales are not always ideal for our customers since many of the coins are sold sight unseen. Not only sight unseen, but with no return policy. If you buy a coin, receive it, then realize it doesn’t fit the images and description seen on line, you have to keep it. Not the best scenario in our opinion. This is why it’s more important than … [Read more...]

Welcome to 2021

Happy New Years! Since Covid-19 came on the scene in the US, the price of gold has skyrocketed to almost $2,000 per ounce. The US dollar has fallen 9% since March, leading to a run on gold by those concerned about the future of the greenback. Since February, the nation has seen a $3 trillion increase on the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet, raising alarm bells for impending inflation as the economy opens up. With no viable solution in sight, demand for gold will continue to rise, boosting value and making it a portfolio necessity in 2021.  Biden’s win, combined with a possible divided government, is likely to create uncertainty around the size of future fiscal stimulus measures and a boon to safe haven assets like gold. Investors should … [Read more...]
