How To Use Gold & Silver Coins Intelligently. For Those Who See A Need To Be Prepared – Others Can Feel Free To Suffer The Consequences.


U.S. Treasury Minted Gold Eagle – Available In 1/10th, 1/4, 1/2 & 1 oz. Denominations

The following list of values is based upon the date noted.  It fluctuates daily.  The purpose of this type of charting is so you can see how easily you can make change and pay for things in gold and silver when the paper currency fails which all paper currencies throughout history have done – no exceptions, and the dollar will soon do as well.  The criminal banksters will tell you there’s not enough gold or silver in the world to function as money.  That’s a lie – President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlawed gold, made Americans turn the gold into the Fed’s, and then he raised the price 40%.  When the dollar fails, you may see gold and silver go up 10 fold or more!  For current daily spot and coin prices, go to Money Metals Exchange, and you can see what percent over spot the coins are actually being sold for, or Coin Info.  As an aside, from 1919 to 1923, the price of gold in the Wieimar Republic of Germany went from 170 Marks to 87 trillion Marks – in FOUR years!

Inflation, controlled by the banksters, eats away at the value of your paper money, but not the metals.  An ounce of silver or gold 1000 or 100 years ago is still an ounce of silver or gold today!  The prices below are based upon spot pricing which is the lowest price.  Premiums are often charged above and beyond the spot price.  The key you should take away from this chart is that you would do well to have a variety of denominations with which to trade.  You don’t want to go to the grocery store with a one ounce gold eagle to buy a loaf of bread, and you don’t want to go to buy an automobile with 1000 bags of nickels.  Whatever you do, take possession of your metals, and don’t ever leave them in a bank vault.  A private vault or home safe where the government and bankers can’t get their hands on it is imperative.  A “private” vault may even be risky!  Enough said?

When buying, try to buy where there is no sales tax on the purchase.

The list of common gold alloys includes:

  • 23k gold: An alloy with 95.9 percent gold content, found in some foreign jewelry.
  • 22k gold: A more durable alloy containing approximately 92 percent gold. This alloy appears in some fine gold jewelry and American gold eagle coins.
  • 21k gold: A less-common alloy of about 87.6 percent gold. Some vintage jewelry has this type of gold content.
  • Rose or red gold: An 18k gold alloy that contains 25 percent copper and 75 percent gold.
  • Black gold: An 18k alloy of 75 percent gold and 25 percent cobalt.
  • Green gold: also known as electrum, this natural alloy contains about 27 percent silver and 73 percent gold.
  • White gold: A 14k, or 58.5 percent alloy that combines gold with nickel, palladium, or manganese.
