Peter Schiff’s Euro Pacific Precious Metals Accepts Bitcoin

Peter Schiff’s Euro Pacific Precious Metals has begun to accept Bitcoin transactions, not because Peter Schiff likes Bitcoin per sae, but because it is a great opportunity to give Bitcoiners an avenue to divest themselves from their Bitcoin holdings.

“Bitcoin offers tremendous benefits as a medium of exchange for both our domestic and international customers. A wire transfer of fiat funds can be slow and expensive for the customer, and credit card fees are too high to absorb at the low premiums we offer,” said Michael Finger, Director of Marketing at Euro Pacific Precious Metals. “Not only does BitPay’s service make business sense, but we are excited about giving owners of bitcoin the opportunity to inexpensively and reliably convert any excess holdings into precious metals rather than back to fiat currency.” Read More

Barack Obama just made the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks region the largest national monument created during his presidency.

On Wednesday the President signed a proclamation to turn half-a-million New Mexico acres into a national monument protected from development.

Silver Manipulation Enters A New Era

Is it truly the beginning of the end of precious metals manipulation or has the London silver fix been mostly symbolic for years? Although it is tough to know from the vantage view many of us find ourselves, there have been a lot of helpful hints along the way…

As humanity awakens to the power structure, markets have been scrutinized like never before. The precious metals market has been among the most scrutinized, if not least publicized. Most people who suspect precious metals of being manipulated believe that ALL MARKETS are manipulated, to be sure, meaning the entire economy is nothing but an illusion based on fiat – the belief of the dominant group.

But somethings have historical precedent. The precious metals’ sectors long and storied history put it at the center of the global economy. Most people, sadly, don’t know this. Read More

Are Adult Entertainers Being Driven To Gold, Silver, Bitcoin?

The US government doesn’t want people in so-called “high-risk” industries to have access to the banking system.

This includes everyone from gun shop owners, to bitcoiners to marijuana dispensaries and even porn stars!

But what the Department of Justice is overlooking is the simple fact that people will turn to gold, silver and bitcoin instead of the banking system. Bitcoin does not discriminate. Read More

US Mint sales of bullion coins increased across most selections. Overall sales of gold coins rose 3,000 while silver coins increased 399,000, underscoring how silver’s reasonable price spurs silver buying among wider swathes of the population than gold.

Sales of American Silver Eagle coins topped 17.3 million in year-to-date sales. The coin has been around since 1986 and has never sold as much as during the January through April 22 period.

Soft precious metals prices have stifled some demand, although March did see the Mint sell 5,354,000 silver American Eagles, which is 30% more than it sold in February and 59.5 percent more than buyers purchased in March 2013, according to CoinNews.  Marking the MInt’s fourth biggest sales month in history, it trails only: Read More

Tuesday saw the negative credit watch decision by Fitch lead to a single day jump in the sales of American Silver Eagles of 749,500, thusly approaching 38 million on the way towards a new annual record. Read More
