A2A with Patrick Heller of Liberty Coin Service


Even if you're not a collector or numismatic enthusiast, I urge you to listen to this podcast. I learned a lot today by visiting with Patrick Heller. You'll likely learn quite a bit, too.

Among the topics discussed over the course of this 43-minute call:

  • The likelihood of a new precious metal confiscation program.
  • Which type of bullion is least likely to be counterfeited.
  • The subtle differences between the recognized coin grading systems.
  • A logical "ratio" of numismatics to bullion for your portfolio.
  • And what about "junk silver"? From where is it sourced? How much of it is out there?

Again, almost everyone will find something interesting in this call so I urge you to give it a listen when you have some time. Thanks again to Pat for joining us today.

I note that in response to my

I note that in response to my question about where all the Junk Silver was, he mentioned being at a big wholesaler and saw a junk silver vault with $1 million face value junk in it. That's only 10,000 $100 bags and could go quickly if a crisis were to develop.

I hear ya Charlie (no pun intended)

I thought I had this issue fixed as Pat's audio on my end was really loud. Once again, though, it git recorded at a much lower level. I'll work on it again for next week.

Overheard in my LCS

Earlier this week was greatly encouraged by what I overheard in my LCS;

Guy comes in and says to the Shop owner, "Hi. Um, it's time for me to get some physical bullion. Good friend of mine told me this was the place to come...."

Took everything I had not to interject myself into the conversation. But I just concluded my business and was on my way. Can't stop hearing that guy in my mind, and find myself thankful for his friend, another guy in my area has been talking and as a result someone new is beginning to stack. Another guy I work with after questioning me at length a year or so ago began stacking AG and has since added AU and is on fire!

It get's into ya. Way fun when peeps eyes start to see!
