    From MarketWatch: The United States Mint said Thursday that it has temporarily sold out of American Silver Eagle bullion coins. “Our rate of sale in just the first part of March exceeds 300% of what was sold last month,” the Mint said. Sales of the one-ounce American Silver Eagle coins were at...

    I've heard several theories: 1) Investors were selling gold to meet margin calls on stocks which is a wacky theory. 2) Investors are dis-hoarding gold to take advantage of the recent price surge which I find much more plausible. I plan on buying more shares of gold ETFs this week.

    Does anyone know of good junk silver coin dealers in either Dallas or the NW part of Arkansas? There are plenty of precious metal buyers but I haven't found any sellers where I live. I can buy online but I'm not home during the day and I'd rather not have an armored vehicle pull up to my...

    Simply put for short term shtf there isn't enough time for them to come into play. Even in a teotwawki senario not everyone has precious metals, so how would they trade? If they traded goods for pm to get in the system my question would be whats the logic? Trading supplies for something...

    I did some searching and couldn't find this topic specifically covered in a thread yet, feel free to point me to one if I'm wrong though. I am putting a plan together to convert a portion of my savings/investments into gold and silver. I'd like to keep some physical amount of it in a well...

    So, I came across all this info about PM IRAs. I kinda laughed. Doing this would cause your PM purchases to be placed "on the books" and stored in a vault at a bank. The first thought to hit my mind is SEIZURE. Government comes and steals your PMs. Maybe that is just me being paranoid...

    I bought some "junk" 30's 40's and 60's quarters today 24 to 1. I got a standing liberty and kennedy half dollar for 24 to 1. Coinflation rates these at 5+ and 10+ respectively. So for 48 I got $2. Should I buy more at this price later? I am just trying to get started. I got thinking about...

    Ive bout about 320 dollars worth of silver(yes at 40 bucks and ounce):( I might buy more if the price drops again, but for now this it. But now my question is now what to do with what I have? Save it? Invest it in an IRA? Wait for the price to go higher then sell it? What do you do with yours?

    I am a novice prepper who is becoming more serious. I have read a lot of people who have silver/gold in case the US dollar/economy fails. I am confused on how people would use it after an event. Lets say I had a lot of silver...lets say one "piece" is worth $500... and I want to buy food off...

    Obviously not for TEOTWAWKI, just as in inflation hedge, and no, i'm not including the lead stored in your projectiles or brass casings :) I see lots of mentions of gold and silver on the forum all the time, but never anything about: Copper Lead (in bricks/ingots) Platinum Nickel Tin Whatever...

    I've decided to set aside a bit of money every month for gold. I figure I should start buying some gradually now both as a general investment and as a prep. So, where do I start? What types should I get? What should I stay away from? What denominations of coins? Where should I buy from? I know...

    Without initially discussing how TEOTWAWKI occurs, I'd like to conjecture on precious metal values. Assume a 90%+ die-off @ one year, and the conditions for such at the earlier points. Initial thoughts: @ 1 week after a significant event: (++) Precious metals may retain or even rise in...
