    Please see the amazingly on topic video linked in the new thread I had to create for it here.

    Default Always On My Mind

    I have that enterprise in my thoughts all the time heartbone. I'm always researching it. The Rep with the Sunshine Mint got back to me the other day. He said he found one of the dies that made the Idaho State Seal Medallion and is still trying to track down the other side that took care of the celebrate Idaho centennial side of the coin...so It's looking like SMI is in fact the controllers of that medallion. When/if he finds the other die....then I will make my move on the party that contracted them.

    I know some Silversmiths (jewelry and art) and have thought about convincing them to branch out and get into coinage (specialty pieces), but I'm still kind of torn, as I am wondering if It's time for me to learn something more myself and get into building my knowledge on the subject, finding out what it's gonna take equipment wise and how feasible it would be for me to handle and go it alone. I do have some good ideas that I always thought deserved to be put in motion. Even if it's small time and I'm building it for myself in the beginning and taking on projects slowly and building a following. I think the idea you had in another thread is definitely something that should have a place in the near future and could very well catch on with people that are looking to alternatives.

    Speaking of alternatives BTW.....good video showcasing movements from another part of the globe.

    They seem to be waking up there...of course people from that part of the world have a long tradition and connection with gold and silver. It's just amazing to me how the shylocks have almost erased it from the American culture, in that such a small percentage of the populace understands it's historical role....they love their ATM and charge cards more I guess.

    Curiosity will not kill this Cat!

    Cool These were tempting me to make my first online bullion purchase.

    Incuse Indian Dime
    Excellent in form and design.

    High in price but I would be willing to speculate with 10 or 20 ounces.
    Then I saw it was sold out.
    I suppose too many others also thought it to be a decent enough deal as well.

    Default I hope they never have to go to court.

    I appreciate their thinking, especially the part:
    "The intended sizes of the bartering currency bullion coins are 5-oz, 2-oz, 1-oz, 1/2-oz, 1/4-oz, 1/5-oz, 1/10-oz, 1/20-oz, 1/50-oz, and 1/100-oz. All coins will be initially created in BU (Brilliant Uncirculated) condition, but if you are forcing a new set of dies to be created with a large order, you can opt to have them created in Proof condition (frosted letters and mirrored finish.) "

    However I think that their design needs to be upgraded with a picture of something nice.

    Isn't their use of the term 'coin' a no-no?

    Angry Unfortunately no one in Washington DC adheres to the constitution anymore.

    317 grains per dollar ~ 27 grams per dollar

    ( 27g/1$ ) * $600 = 16,200 g

    16,200g * (31.1troy/1g) = 521 troy ounces

    521 troy * ($18.14/1 troy) = $9449


    which seems much more reasonable for a reporting threshold.
    Update:
    That 600 (constitutional) dollar
    IRS 1099 transaction reporting threshold is now up to 19605.23 Federal Reserve Notes.

    Why would they when the citizens don't make them?

    It's NOT the gov'ts responsibility to hold themselves accountable, it's YOURS!

    Seems as though you are unemployed in more ways than one.

    Are you aware that there are current laws that supercede some of the ones from 200 years ago? For example, we now allow women and Blacks to vote. You may disagree with this, but the rest of us don't.
