This Week's Media

All four links in one handy post.

Thu, Apr 8, 2021 - 1:33pm

It has been a busy week in terms of interview appearances. Since you may have missed one or two...and since you might have an interest in forwarding some of the links...I thought I'd combine them all into one public post.

Most of the discussion focuses upon the #SilverSqueeze and the ongoing crisis of confidence in unallocated accounts worldwide. I wrote about this on Tuesday at Sprott Money. If you haven't yet seen the link, you should check it out now.

Our first outside interview this week was with my old friend, Dunagan Kaiser, for his site Reluctant Preppers which can now be found here.

Next up was an appearance Kerry Lutz for his site Financial Survival Network.

I followed that up late Tuesday evening (Wednesday afternoon Australia time) with Palisades Radio. In this lengthy but detailed podcast, John Adams and I discuss the perils of the global unallocated bullion systems.

And finally, within the past hour, I discussed current events with Jean-Claude at his Beyond Mystic site.

Thanks for checking these out. If you find any of them particularly helpful, give them a like and perhaps consider forwarding the link to your contacts and friends.

It's A lot Easier to Detect Fake Coins Rather Than Fake Bars

I usually buy coins rather than bars. I use a tool called "The Fisch". It's small, inexpensive and easy to use. For Gold, you check the diameter, width and weight. If that passes, then you ping it. If it makes a thud, then it's probably tungsten. If it rings, then it is real gold. Also, gold plated tungsten coins are easy to spot because they look different (uglier).

I think for silver coins it's a little harder to detect fakes. Real silver makes a characteristic ring when you ping it. Also make sure that it is not attracted to a magnet.

I think it is not cost effective to make fake silver coins. However, fake silver (and gold) bars might be a different matter altogether.

Called LCS today

"Hello (unnamed) Gold and Silver Coin Store."

"Hello, do you have any Gold 1 ounce coins for sale?"

"Sorry, don't have any. Could put you on a list..what do you want?"

"How about Silver? Do you have any Silver in stock?"

"Sorry, no Silver."

"OK..thank you."

"Thank you for checking."

I need silver to go up 500% to match the price of 3/8 OSB plywood, now $75 per sheet in SK, Canada. (Paid $14 per sheet exactly 1 year ago)

JPM needs to enter the lumber business to lower the prices. haha
