Weakness in the euro and the yen has led to dollar strength and further decline in the metals today. Now that the key levels we've been watching for support have been broken, it's time to take stock of where we are and perhaps prepare for additional weakness as the June gold contract comes off the board.

Gold or Silver or Bullion or Numismatics??

Gold or Silver? Bullion or Numismatics??

Video Rating: / 5

Gold or Silver or Bullion or Numismatics??

Here on www.preciousmetalsinvesting.com you know I generally shy away from numismatics and focus more on bullion purchases. My bullion purchases focus on government issued gold and silver bullion coins. They are generally sold at a small premium over the spot values of the precious metals content to cover minting and marketing costs. I also purchase so called "junk silver" which are older US coins that were in circulation and contain varying percentages of silver. They are generally sold for a small premium over melt value. Because of the problems today of counterfeiting I only purchase from recognized dealers with a good reputation. Today there are counterfeiters not only making gold and silver bullion coins but also numismatic coins. Just search YouTube and you will find videos of factories in China producing numismatic coins and bullion coins. These are also basically the same recommendations you will find in the Precious Metals buying guide you can get at this site by subscribing to our newsletter.

The advantages of this approach to buying physical precious metals are:

1. Low premium over spot

2. No need to spend extra money for evaluation or certification of coin grade, etc. to establish value. There have been reported instances of so called "proof sets" or "certified grade" coins sealed in their plastic protective display cases turning out to be counterfeit. If I was buying a coin at a price that was high above spot I certainly would want to make sure it was genuine and could bring close to the value I was paying if I needed to resell.

3. Easily recognized value of a bullion coin makes it easy to sell for what I paid for it.

4. Generally no wide disagreement on the value of a bullion coin as contrasted with a numismatic coin whose value often varies by what the buyer views as the value.

5. Since generally condition of the bullion coin is not an issue there is not the expense of coin grading or a disagreement between recognized numismatic graders on the exact coin grade of the same coin. Since condition plays a large part in determining the value of a numismatic coin price can vary widely.

However this video is another view. In it he says that he became bored by just buying bullion and sold off 90% of his collection when prices dropped. Then he says he noticed an interesting thing. His numismatic coins maintained their value better than his bullion coins. Now this is completely possible. If you have a rare numismatic coin it's value is based on the perceived rarity rather than the value of the metal. But the question for me is the value more than the price I paid for it? Are there any costs associated in selling it and possibly having to validate the value to the buyer? As they say in real estate the value of a piece of property is what a willing buyer is willing to buy it at and a seller is willing to sell it at. A buyer and seller's idea of the perceived value may not be the same. But you could hit it lucky, have a rare coin you bought at good price, and be able to sell for more than you paid for it.

However for me numismatics just have too many variables if I am looking at physical precious metals as a store of value that might be needed for exchange some time in the future.

There is the allure of coin collecting. When I was growing up I had a coin collection and it was interesting to collect the different coins, see the different forms coins were produced in, etc. So numismatics do have value as an interesting hobby. However I don't think you should confuse the hobby aspect with a dependable, exchangeable store of value.

That's my feelings on this issue. I'd like to hear from our viewers and subscribers here at

May 2016: Will Deutsche Bank Survive This Wave Of Trouble Or Will It Be The Next Lehman Brothers?

Posted: 23 May 2016 03:27 PM PDT

Euro Question - Public DomainIf you have been waiting for “the next Lehman Brothers moment” which will cause the global financial system to descend into a state of mass panic, you might want to keep a close eye on German banking giant Deutsche Bank.  It is approximately three times larger than Lehman Brothers was, and if the most important bank in the strongest economy in Europe were to implode, it would instantly send shockwaves rippling across the entire planet.  Those that follow my work regularly know that I started sounding the alarm about Deutsche Bank beginning last September.  Since that time, the bad news from Deutsche Bank has not stopped pouring in.  They announced a loss of 6.8 billion euros for 2015, and they have been plagued by scandal after scandal.  In recent months they have gotten into trouble for trying to rig precious metal prices, for committing “equity trading fraud” and for their dealings in mortgage-backed securities.  The following comes from Zero Hedge

A month after admitting to rigging precious metals markets, Deutsche Bank has been hit with a double-whammy of more alleged fraudulent behavior today and the stock is sliding. First, Reuters reports that the bank took a charge of 450 million euros for “equity trading fraud,” and then Bloomberg reports that The SEC is looking into Deutsche’s post-crisis mortgage positions.

This is a bank that is steadily bleeding money, and so the last thing that it needs is for government agencies to be putting immense pressure on it.  Unfortunately for Deutsche Bank, the SEC seems determined to kick it while it is down

Troubled Wall Street giant Deutsche Bank is under another investigation, this time by the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding the pricing and reporting of certain mortgage-backed securities.

The SEC wants to know whether the Frankfurt, Germany-based bank artificially raised the value of mortgage-backed securities in 2013 and later hid those losses for an extended period of time, Bloomberg first reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

But even if there were no scandals and no government investigations, the truth is that Deutsche Bank would be a deeply troubled bank anyway.

At one point, it was estimated that Deutsche Bank had 64 trillion dollars worth of exposure to derivatives contracts.  That is an amount of money that is approximately 16 times the size of the GDP of the entire nation of Germany.

So nobody wants to see Deutsche Bank fail.  It would be a financial disaster unlike anything the world has ever experienced before.

But right now things are not looking good.  As you can see from this chart, the steady decline of Deutsche Bank’s stock price is eerily similar to what happened to Lehman Brothers during the months leading up to the time when it finally completely collapsed…

Deutsche Bank Lehman Brothers - Zero Hedge

Earlier this year, Deutsche Bank’s stock price set a new record low, and since that time it has been hovering just above that record low.

Clearly it is no secret that Deutsche Bank is having big problems, and the outlook for the immediate future is not good.  I included the following quote from Berenberg analyst James Chappell in a previous article, but I think that it bears repeating…

Too many problems still: The biggest problem is that DBK has too much leverage. On our measures, we believe DBK is still over 40x levered. DBK can either reduce assets or increase capital to rectify this. On the first path, the markets do not exist in the size nor pricing to enable it to follow this route. Going down the second path also seems impossible at the moment, as the profitability of the core business is under pressure. Seeking outside capital is also likely to be difficult as management would likely find it hard to offer any type of return on new capital invested.

In the end, I believe that Deutsche Bank will ultimately implode, but it won’t be the only one.

Meanwhile, we just got some more very disturbing news out of Asia.  According to Bloomberg, Japanese exports have now fallen for seven months in a row…

Japan's exports fell for a seventh consecutive month in April as the yen strengthened, underscoring the growing challenges to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's efforts to revive economic growth.

Overseas shipments declined 10.1 percent in April from a year earlier, the Ministry of Finance said on Monday. The median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg was for a 9.9 percent drop. Imports fell 23.3 percent, leaving a trade surplus of 823.5 billion yen ($7.5 billion), the highest since March 2010.

When your imports are 23 percent lower than they were a year earlier, that is a clear sign that consumer demand is way, way down and that your economy is in the process of imploding.

So I will repeat what I have said a number of times before…

Watch Germany and watch Japan.

I believe that they are going to be two of the biggest stories as this new global financial crisis begins to play out.
