• 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.

SILVER EAGLE SALES DOUBLED IN FEBRUARY: U.S. Mint Temporarily Suspends Authorized Purchases

Sales of Silver Eagles continue to be strong as demand for the official coins surged in February. Moreover, as the Authorized purchases of Silver Eagles jumped by 775,000 oz this past Thursday, the U.S. Mint issued a temporary suspension of sales until inventories can be restocked. This is a very positive sign as total Silver Eagle sales last year fell to low of 15.7 million, down more than 50%, compared to the 37.7 million set in 2016. According to the U.S. Mint’s most recent update, Silver Eagle sales as of February 21st were 2,057,500 versus the 942,500 during the same month in 2018. Not only are Silver Eagle sales this month more than double last year, but they also surpassed Feb 2017’s figure by 842,000…

Fed Must Face Reality

More than a decade after the 2008 financial crisis, U.S. monetary policy continues to operate in crisis management mode. Despite a long, drawn out rate-hiking campaign – now paused – the Federal Reserve has yet to bring its benchmark interest rate up to normal levels historically. It has yet to unwind the vast majority of the nearly $4 trillion in emergency asset purchases added to its balance sheet. The Fed outlined its “normalization” policies back in September 2014. The two main components of normalization are gradual increases in the federal funds rate toward neutral and gradual reductions in securities held on the central bank’s balance sheet. Even with the benefit of an unusually prolonged period of favorable economic conditions, progress toward normalization has been slow…

Supply Problems Worsen in Minted Silver

Sales of the Silver American Eagles are off to stronger start this year, and the U.S. Mint has once again been caught flat-footed. Dealers received the following statement from the Mint last Thursday: This is to inform you that we have temporarily sold out of our inventories of 2019-dated American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins. In addition, all remaining 2018-dated inventories have been sold too. The West Point Mint is busy producing additional 2019-dated American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins. We hope to be able to re-launch the 2019-dated coins in a few weeks. Premiums for the coins moved higher immediately following the announcement, and they could move higher still if demand remains strong. Total 2018 sales of silver Eagles slowed to the lowest level since 2007….

When to Buy Gold & Silver (Is it a Good Time to Invest in Gold & Silver?)

In the original (1960) classic movie The Magnificent Seven, a Western adaptation of Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai, Vin (Steve McQueen), tells the wry tale of a man who fell off a ten-story building. Passing each floor people heard him say, «So far, so good!» This strange little tale is an excellent metaphor for many of today’s citizens around the globe. Through the multiple lens of news reporting, political commentary and social media, they see what’s going on yet remain transfixed in the moment, because things are well, so far, so good. Venezuelans have done so even as adults there have lost an average 20 pounds, while their «leader» may have gained even more! So far, so good… until it isn’t. On November 20, 2016, Indian…

Gold & Silver Prices Firm Despite Dollar

Silver has fallen about $.45/oz from the early January highs, and gold has lost around $9/oz. Frankly, price action could be a lot worse. During that time, the Federal Reserve Note dollar rallied and the equity markets roared higher. That combination should be bad news for gold and silver markets, but the premier precious metals have held onto most of their recent gains. Perhaps the metals markets are seeing past the rally in the dollar. There isn’t much to support that move higher, after all. The Fed recently signaled a dramatic about face on monetary policy. Two months ago, tighter monetary policy was a near certainty. Now, central bank officials are publicly putting the brakes on rate hikes and “Quantitative Tightening” – the program of…

Socialist “Green New Deal” Points the Way to Hyperinflation

Socialist Venezuela’s economic collapse and hyperinflationary spiral serves as a warning for American investors. It’s what can happen when a government spends perpetually beyond its means and refuses to face reality. Despite a U.S. economy that appears relatively strong and stable on the surface, its foundation is beginning to crack under the pressure of a $22 trillion (and growing) debt load. Both Republicans and Democrats are to blame for that. But rising pro-socialist sentiment within the Democrat Party could turn our current debt danger into a clear and present disaster. We are potentially just one election away from heading down a road to economic ruin – one that could bring about a Third World-style hyperinflation in the United States. In his State of the Union…

Bill to Remove Income Taxation from Gold and Silver

The battle to end taxation of constitutional money has reached the federal level as U.S. Representative Alex Mooney (R-WV) today re-introduced sound money legislation to remove all federal income taxation from gold and silver coins and bullion. The Monetary Metals Tax Neutrality Act (H.R. 1089) backed by the Sound Money Defense League and free-market activists – would clarify that the sale or exchange of precious metals bullion and coins are not to be included in capital gains, losses, or any other type of federal income calculation. “My view, which is backed up by language in the U.S. Constitution, is that gold and silver coins are money and are legal tender,” Rep. Mooney said. Congressman Alex X. Mooney (R-WV) “If they’re indeed U.S. money, it seems…
