GOLD CONFISCATION

Private Gold Coins

Many like minded investors are flocking to gold as a safe haven to protect their purchasing power against a consistently depreciating dollar. What most people don’t know is that not all gold is created equal.

A piece of fact that most people don’t know is that the government considers private gold (non-confiscatable gold), any gold that is worth at least 15% more than its intrinsic value (gold content). Typically, and coin dated prior to 1933, has the advantage of being private in both acquisition and liquidation of the asset. As is evident by Executive Order 6102, owning private, non-confiscatable gold and silver is the safest way to protect you in the midst of an economic crisis, and worse, a currency crisis. Those that own bullion coins (coins dated from 1986-to date) should remember that the freedom to hold bullion is a privilege, not a right. Bullion is subject to a government confiscation at any time. Why would the government confiscate my gold bullion you ask? Economists believe that by collecting all of the gold bullion from its citizens will provide enough stability to monetized its debts and restructure a stronger government financial backing. You might say, well how are they going to find my gold? The reality of the situation is a surprise to most. In past history what we’ve seen is the government will not come knocking on your door, but rather devalue the bullion gold coins to its original face value, thus causing a major debasement of real value in the coin. For instance, an American Gold Eagle 1 oz. gold coin has a face value of $50. Pre-1933 non-confiscatable U.S. gold and silver coins are one of the few remaining investments today in the U.S. that can be accumulated privately and confidentially.
