Celebrate International Firefighters Day With Silver Bullion

Celebrate International Firefighters Day With Silver Bullion

“The role of a firefighter in today’s society--be it urban, rural, natural environment, volunteer, career, industrial, defense force, aviation, motorsport, or other is one of dedication, commitment, and sacrifice--no matter what country we reside and work in. In the fire service, we fight together against one common enemy--fire--no matter what country we come from, what uniform we wear, or what language we speak.” - Lt JJ Edmondson, 1999

Dedication. Courage. Honor. Strength. Commitment. All these terms are synonymous when describing the service one takes on when they become a firefighter.

Firefighters dedicate their lives to the protection of life and property of others...read more

Christian Gobrecht: United States Mint Chief Engraver Series

Christian Gobrecht: United States Mint Chief Engraver Series

The history of United States coinage is particularly rich. Think about it; the Walking Liberty half dollar design, the American Silver Eagle, the Morgan dollar, colonial issues such as the Halfpenny and early American Tokens. It is quite frankly amazing the amount of work and creative process that is in involved in designing coinage, but the intricacies of past US coinage is perhaps superior to anything done in the last couple of decades. For example? The Liberty Seated series. It was highly successful and designed by the third United States Mint Chief Engraver, Christian Gobrecht.

Born in December of 1785 to a German immigrant and a Plymouth Colony ancestor in Hanover, Pennsylvania, Gobrecht grew up learning the intricacies...read more

No not the bad kind; the kind that sees silver reach nearly $50 an ounce which in turn, allows for the busiest of hobbies to get even busier. Some might say it was the perfect time to get hired on in the midst of it all. Some might say the complete opposite. But what we do know is that Nikki...read more

Owning 40% Silver Coins

Owning 40% Silver Coins

When one thinks of owning silver, usually they refer to bars and medallions in bulk whether that means in pieces (quantity) or in ounces (5oz, 10oz, etc). It makes perfect sense, but what often some do not think about is the intent when owning silver.

Previously we talked about owning 90% silver coinage and its benefits, which you can read up on at our website. To make a long story short, United States coinage is THE benefit and we all know that carries a lot due to the ever-growing need to learn more and more about our rich history as Americans in this current social and political climate. So continuing the conversation, we now turn to 40% silver. We know there is a question mark above your head right now. Let us explain...read more

National Cancer Control Month: Spreading Awareness Through Silver

National Cancer Control Month: Spreading Awareness Through Silver

There is a Presidential Proclamation made every year at this time. This proclamation is a plea to Americans near and far to make it a priority to pay attention to their bodies and to pay attention to all the risk factors that can increase a person’s likelihood of developing cancer and what to do to reduce them.

April is National Cancer Control Month and its importance has been made clear and evident ever since its approved resolution by Congress during President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s term. President Roosevelt signed the National Cancer Institute Act on August 5th, 1937, in attempts to kickstart the future conquest of cancer. These proclamations are federally endorsed annual observations with the last proclamation given by President Donald...read more
