• Tollvesenet har i sommer fattet et vedtak på en av våre importsendinger som går imot tidligere praksis, og som etter vår mening er i strid med gjeldende lovverk. Tollvesenet vil heretter ikke anerkjenne sølv- og gullmynter (definert som "legal tender" i sitt opprinnelsesland) som fritatt merverdiavgift. Dette betyr at alle innførsler av typiske investeringsmynter til Norge vil kunne bli belastet med 25% mva., på tross av at myntene er gitt legal tender status med pålydende valør.

    Realverdier.no vil dessverre ikke kunne innføre flere investeringsmynter inntil prinsipielt svar på vår klage til Tollvesenet/Skatt Øst (minus 7 vedlegg) foreligger.

A Gold Supply Crunch Is Coming…

During the lackluster and otherwise unremarkable trading of 2018, a hugely important development took place in the precious metals markets. Gold production, in the estimation of some top industry insiders, peaked. Peak gold represents the point at which the total number of ounces being pulled out of the ground by miners reaches a maximum. It doesn’t necessarily mean gold production will suffer a precipitous fall. But it does mean the mining industry lacks the capacity to ramp up production in order to meet rising global demand and even higher prices would not make it happen. One of the leading proponents of the peak gold thesis is Ian Telfer, chairman of Goldcorp (which was recently acquired by Newmont Mining to become the world’s biggest gold company)….

U.S. Mint Silver Eagle Sales Jump In January

As the demand for precious metals shows some life once again, sales of the U.S. Mint Silver Eagles jumped in January. Not only have Gold, and Silver Eagle sales increased, so have the precious metals prices. In the past two months, gold and silver prices have gained 7% and 11% respectively. Today, gold reached $1,320, while silver topped $16. While January sales of Silver Eagles fell to a low last year at 3.2 million oz (Moz), down from 5.1 Moz in 2017, they picked up this month surpassing 4 Moz. According to the U.S. Mint’s most recent update, Silver Eagle sales totaled 4,017,500 versus 3,235,000 last year: Thus, Silver Eagle sales have increased nearly 25% more than the same month the previous year. While it…

West Virginia Legislator Proposes Eliminating ALL Taxation on Gold and Silver

Charleston, West Virginia (January 29, 2019) — West Virginia legislator Delegate Pat McGeehan (R-01) has introduced the West Virginia Sound Money Act, House Bill 2684 , to eliminate all tax liability on gold and silver in the state. Following in the footsteps of the Wyoming Legal Tender Act , which passed in Wyoming overwhelmingly last year, the West Virginia Sound Money Act is a similar measure that will remove all taxation against gold and silver, including sales and use tax, property tax, individual income tax, and corporate income tax. Under current law, West Virginia citizens are discouraged from insulating their savings against the devaluation of the dollar because they are penalized with taxation for doing so. House Bill 2684 removes the disincentives to using gold and…

Looking at Gold (and Silver) from the Third Side of the Coin

Two years ago at a conference during which I both presented and attended, a Keynote speaker, «Rich Dad» Robert Kiyosaki, introduced me to a different way of looking at things. He posed the question, «How many sides does a coin have?» The correct answer is «three.» The front (obverse), back (reverse) and… the edge! When you think about it, this makes sense. From this angle – uncommon to most observers – a person can begin to look more deeply at a given subject. From the edge, you are able by definition, to see «both sides» of the story. Using Rich Dad’s perspective as a research tool helps define and validate the premise of this essay… that the price action right now of gold – and…

Fed Folds Under Pressure, Telegraphs Looser Money Ahead

Two big questions have been front and center for Fed watchers in recent months… The first is just how high rates could go before stimulus-addicted markets would falter. The second is whether our central bankers would bow to pressure once markets faltered and politicians began calling for the Fed to resume easy money policies. Both questions now seem to have an answer. They began to wonder in earnest if sky-high stock market valuations could be supported in an environment where Fed officials promised to keep rates moving even higher for the foreseeable future. The equity markets spent most of the last quarter of the year puking and retching. The second question was answered by the change in posture of bankers at the Fed and the…

All Civility Lost in Washington; Greg Weldon Exclusive: Gold Is Rallying in All Other Fiat Currencies

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Coming up Greg Weldon of Weldon Financial joins us for a 2019 outlook. I’ll ask him if the thinks the recent stock market rally has legs – and also for his forecast for gold this year.

Gold and silver markets traded modestly lower through Thursday’s close as the U.S. Senate failed to pass bills to re-open the government. All the metals are up today however. President Trump’s compromise deal garnered a majority but drew just one Democrat vote and…

The Silver Price and Broader Markets

The silver price trended lower last week after hitting a high of nearly $16 the prior week. So, what’s in store for silver and the broader markets this week? If we look at the moving averages and what is taking place in the broader markets, we may find some clues. It seems as if the silver price over the past two weeks has been moving in the opposite direction of the Dow Jones Index and the broader markets. As the Dow Jones increased 1,800 points since January 4th, the silver price fell more than 50 cents to $15.40 on the close of Friday. If we look at the Silver Daily chart versus the Dow Jones Index (Black line) we can also see that the silver…

Arizona Legislator Proposes Securing State Reserves with Gold and Silver

Phoenix, Arizona (January 22, 2019) – An Arizona legislator has put forward a bill to de-risk the state’s financial holdings with a modest allocation to physical gold and silver in the state’s reserve fund. Introduced by Representative Mark Finchem (R-Tucson), the Arizona Sound Money Stabilization Act (HB 2500 ) requires that at least 10% of Arizona’s Budget Stabilization Fund be held in the monetary metals in a secure depository. Arizona’s Budget Stabilization Fund has almost $500 million in assets but is currently invested in debt instruments and the stock market. The state owns no gold or silver. Finchem’s past sound money initiatives have been successful. In 2017, Rep. Finchem passed the ground-breaking House Bill 2014 , a measure which removed all income taxation of gold…

Global Silver Production May Decline More Than Analysts Forecasts

The global mine supply from the top silver producing countries may decline more than the industry forecasts. The leading consultancies reported that global silver production would increase moderately by 1-2% in 2018. However, the data from several countries and large mining companies suggest that overall world silver production may decline by 2-3+%. For example, the top two leading silver producing countries, Mexico and Peru have reported declines in 2018, according to their official data. Mexico’s silver production, fell 2.5% from Jan-Oct 2018 compared to the same period last year while Peru’s mine supply fell more than 5% (Jan-Nov). Furthermore, KGHM, the large copper by-product silver mining company in Poland reported an 8.7% decline in silver production in the first three-quarters of 2018. Poland was the…

Find the Cheapest Precious Metals Products in the “Bargain Bin”

Our clients occasionally ask which products offer the absolute lowest premiums. Here’s the inside skinny… Privately made bars and rounds, as opposed to government issue coins, are hard to beat when it comes to low premiums. That is why we recommend them so often. Investors will often find the combination of uncirculated beauty and low cost to be a “sweet spot.” About the only way to lower costs even further is to make some compromises when it comes to condition. It is possible to buy scratched, dented, and/or tarnished items at a discount. Investors who don’t care much about aesthetics, or don’t mind cleaning tarnished items, can get more precious metal for their dollars. We have mentioned cleaning, so it is important to be clear…
