• 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 Market Alert: Powerful Bullish Setup

The silver market appears to be setting up for a big move. After spending this spring stair-stepping lower in a narrowing range, silver prices have formed a falling wedge pattern. That pattern usually resolves in a powerful directional breakout. The good news for bulls is that falling wedges usually break out to the upside. Commercial hedgers and bullion banks (i.e., “smart money”) in the silver futures market have significantly trimmed their short positions over the past couple weeks – a bullish development. While their net positioning isn’t yet at an extreme, it is more favorable than not for a price rally to commence in the near future. Of course, neither futures traders nor chart patterns are 100% reliable. Nor do they have any particular implications…

A Look Inside the Scheme to Eliminate Cash

Central bankers and politicians love inflation, but they need “bag holders” to have faith in the value of the fiat currency IOUs they hold. The trick is to avoid suddenly destroying the ephemeral confidence in currencies by printing too much too fast. Central bankers may also need to limit the options inflation wary citizens have for escaping. They are both shifty and innovative when it comes to making sure the ill effects of perpetually devaluing currency are primarily borne by the citizenry. Lying and trying to hide what they are doing to the currency has been tradition with politicians since Roman times. Nero began quietly reducing the silver content of the Denarius around 60 A.D. Today central bankers and governments don’t have to bother with…

Silver Sentiment: Is It (Your) Friend or Foe?

The gold and silver bull markets have been on a roller coaster ride for almost two decades. Gold came to life in 2000, with silver crawling along between $4 and $5 until late 2003, making its first print above $10 in March 2006. The next two years saw the last part of a 400% up-move for those who «kept the faith,» before silver dropped below $9 during the 2008 global financial meltdown. Then it was up, up and away, as silver rocketed to nearly $50 by April 2011. By then, «everyone knew» it was going to $100. A blogger announced he had sold his house to buy silver and advised others to do the same. Silver’s «sandpaper decline,» 2011-16. Holding physical metal was no fun,…

Buyer’s Market in Bullion Continues

The ample supplies of coins , rounds , and bars being sold back into the retail bullion market are keeping premiums down. These “secondary market” items are almost always in stock and available at a significant discount to newly minted product. It’s an opportunity buyers have lacked for most of the past decade. Folks should not hesitate to take advantage of today’s historic low premiums. When our Specialists recommend buying lower-priced secondary market products, it is common for clients to ask whether anything is wrong with them. They wonder if perhaps the coins have been damaged. The answer is usually “no.” Ethical dealers will always disclose condition issues. Unless the buyer is specifically told the items they are buying are tarnished, spotted, scratched or otherwise…

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Coming up the one and only Marc Faber joins me for a tremendous conversation on debt, the global economy and the future of the dollar.

Well, the gold market finally broke away from the $1,300 level, where it had been ranging for several weeks. Unfortunately for the bulls, it broke to the downside. Gold hit a slight new low for the year on Thursday. With the markets closed today for…

Washington State Politicians Drop Cynical Attempt to Impose Taxes on Gold & Silver

Sound Money Group, In-State Dealers, and Grassroots Activists Deter Tax-Hungry Politicians Well, here’s some encouraging news… Efforts in Washington State to impose sales taxes on gold and silver were SHUT DOWN today thanks to intense efforts by the Sound Money Defense League, a group of in-state coin dealers led by Dan Duncan, the Association of Washington Businesses, and a large number of vocal grassroots supporters. Here’s the backstory… Since last month, a few misguided Washington State senators and representatives have been trying to ram through a new tax on constitutional money. Their cynical efforts stalled out last month on the senate side, and today, the House Finance Committee voted decisively against imposing a new sales tax on precious metals. Maintaining current law and not levying…

Silver Investment Demand Surged Higher

According to the recently released 2019 World Silver Survey, silver investment demand was significantly higher than analysts forecasted. How much higher? A lot, especially since the analysts stated that silver coin and bar purchases were expected to contract due to falling demand globally. However, when the data was finally collected, it turned out that physical silver investment was the leading growth sector in the silver market in 2018… by a large degree. And, we can thank super-strong Indian silver demand for pushing physical investment to double-digit growth instead of a substantial decline. Now, if we look at the information released by the Silver Institute back in November 2018 (Silver Interim Report ), it stated that silver coin and bar demand was estimated to drop by…

World’s Largest Primary Silver Miner Production Plunges

Silver production at the world’s largest producer fell significantly in the first quarter of the year. Fresnillo PLC reported a decrease in silver production in Q1 2019 versus the same period last year, due to lower ore grades and reduced volumes of processed ore at its Fresnillo Mine. Furthermore, while silver production fell the most at its Fresnillo Mine, the company also experienced declines at its Saucito and San Julian Mines. Total silver production at Fresnillo PLC dropped by 15% in the first quarter compared to the same quarter in 2018. Total silver mine supply at the company fell to 13.1 million oz (Moz) in Q1 2019 versus 15.4 Moz in Q1 2018. According to the press release, the majority of the decline was due…

Three Rules Investing in Metals

The questions first-time precious metals buyers ask most often are «what should I buy?» and «how do I get started?» We have covered these questions many times over the years, but they are worth reconsidering from time to time. Hundreds of new metals investors find Money Metals each month. We know many of them may not have seen our precious metals buying guides and the other resources in our education center. The very first rule of precious metals investing is to avoid collectible coins and buy low-premium bullion (non-collectible) products instead. Well, to be precise, it is actually those many shady rare coin dealers one needs to avoid. The dealers to avoid are usually the ones heavily marketing on TV and radio using celebrity spokesmen,…
