A few months ago I spoke with a woman who challenged my profession in precious metals. “Don’t you know gold can be created from lead?” she said. She then informed me that the best thing to do in the coming years was to avoid the purchase of precious metals, fiercely warning me of a coming gold collapse. “There will be a mass production of gold!” she hung up the phone before I had a chance to respond.

Like the tale of the Good Samaritan or the Unfruitful Fig Tree, the Parable of Talents is one Christ’s teachings to his disciples to instruct them of God’s will for Man’s life. Traditional Christian interpretation of the “Parable of Talents” sees it as a didactic and cautionary tale told by Christ to his disciples illustrating the importance of taking risks for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Christ warns his followers to use their personal gifts or “talents” to further God’s work. Failure to do so appropriately would result in severe judgment.

On Thursday Bitcoin gained parity with gold for the first time, only to surpass it shortly after. The cryptocurrency reached a high of $1281.21 by 1 p.m. EST on the BTCUSD exchange, according to MarketWatch. The mainstream media is likely to hype the story, inspiring many to sing the praises of Bitcoin as a better investment than gold or other precious metals.

But before you trade your gold coins or silver bullion for Bitcoin, remember that cryptocurrencies have little in common to precious metals when it comes to value and volatility. Goldmoney contributor, Stefan Weiler, explains the problems of comparing precious metals vs cryptocurrencies.

Today marks silver’s ninth consecutive week of higher nominal prices. Short coverings from yesterday’s rally is the reason behind silver’s higher price today. Commodity traders have been looking at the chart below and deeming silver as overbought. This is seen in the large short interest for silver, meaning traders are betting against silver’s price by shorting the market. Across silver futures, ETF’s, and OTC markets, there has been an increase in short positions.

Spearheaded by legislative efforts in Utah, Texas, and Oklahoma, a substantial number of states have undertaken efforts to reinstitute gold and silver as money (according to the hyperlink-based sources, 24 have made efforts).  Numerous states are increasingly concerned about the nation’s Fed-based fiat monetary system, which debases the dollar, enables protracted, yawning deficit spending and trade deficits, and runs up huge, unpayable debts. With Utah, Texas, and Oklahoma blazing a trail back to constitutional money, states such as Louisiana, Arizona, South Carolina, and Kansas have been inspired to once again make gold and silver legal tender with which to conduct commerce in their jurisdictions.

This article is a comprehensive breakdown on SchiffGold’s most bought/sold silver products. I give my personal comments on each product and I give a brief final analysis to help buyers pinpoint the exact product that meets their goals and objectives.

Additionally, I wrote this for buyers seeking to take delivery or possession within the United States. International markets value some products differently. For clients seeking international silver holdings I recommend talking to your precious metals specialist.

One of the wisest questions any potential buyer can ask before they purchase an asset is, “How much would I receive if I sold this asset or product today?” In other words, “What is the bid on this asset?” Answering this one question alone can save an individual from making a foolish purchase.

Wise buyers understand the fundamental dynamics of the market. They are aware there is no single price for any product or asset. Instead, there is an “ask” price and a “bid” price.

The “ask price” (aka the “offer”) is the lowest price a prospective seller is willing to accept. The bid price is less intuitive. The bid is the highest price a prospective buyer is willing to pay for a product or asset.

Dealers create a market by simultaneously acting as sellers and buyers. Dealers earn a profit via buying an asset at the bid price and selling at the ask price.

Here is an example of a dealer quoting the bid and ask price for a contract of the Dow Jones Industrial Average also called “the Dow”:

From the gold and silver in Solomon’s temple to heaven’s streets of pure gold, there are more than 700 references to these two precious metals in the Bible. As relevant and desired as gold and silver are today throughout most cultures, they have a much older and timeless context within the Bible. When examining scripture, a reader can draw three critical characteristics about gold and silver: their divine origin, intrinsic value, and monetary quality.
