We ran this article last week for subscribers and are releasing it for the public this week. (We will then also re-run an article done last summer regarding junk silver.) Currently an anomaly exists that only a couple years ago could not have been imagined. 10 years ago it would have been considered an impossibility!
Back in 2010, when gold traded around $1,000 per ounce, “numismatic” pre-1933 gold coins traded for huge premiums. This happened because there was fear the Obama administration might go the route of FDR and confiscate bullion. That did not happen, but we did get to see a precursor to what might be should (when?) confiscation become a reality.
