$80CDN (that's $76.19US as of this minute) for an ounce of silver that is trading at $30US today?

Oh yeah...

Great 'deal'...

I just bought 3 coins. One small detail - they added 39 cents HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) to the $ 2.99 shipping charge. So the total comes to $ 63.38.

 Quoting: SnakeAirlines


OK Snake,

Here is why it is a big deal. It is the re-monetization of a precious metal within the world economic system.

Throughout the recent fiat economic climate, silver coinage has continued to be minted, typically for numismatic and bullion purposes.
Bullion:
American Silver Eagles- Face Value 1$US
Canadian Silver Maple- Face Value 5$CAN

These coins are minimally monetized as the silver value far exceeds the fiat stamped equivalent.

A 20$CAN coin with .25 Troy ounces is 'fully monetized' meaning the silver value is on par with the fiat value.

You likely reply: "No Dummy, silver is 30$/oz right now, not 80."

Yes, so the fiat monetized value is higher, today. Great, then spend the coin as some will do. This action effectively monetizes silver coinage within the world cash markets.

So if silver crashes you still have 20$ fiat.

I for one would rather have 20$ fiat made from silver than 20$ fiat made from paper. ;-`)

 Quoting: gingie369


That doesn't make any sense. It's a perfect hedge. So long as silver is anywhere below $80, that coin is still worth $20 CAD, which is about $20 USD. If silver goes down further, that coin retains it legal tender value. It only becomes worth more than $20 either numismatically because it's so limited OR if silver goes above $80.00. If I could sell all my PMs and buy as many of those $20 CAD coins as I could, I would do so today. But I see they've put a 3 coin limit per customer on it.

Re: CANADA introduces 99.99% silver coins for circulation. Silver is money.
Quoting myself from material I rounded up and posted to page 25 of this now 39 page thread: Thread: Get rid of the money system, then get rid of goverrments (Page 25)

Much much more on various and sundry associated topics.

The question of what properties a finely tuned monetary system might possess... - check it out!

Dollar" - The Name and Usage

The word "dollar" was historically associated with silver coins, not gold. Here are a couple of citations.


The word "dollar" is derived from Low Saxon "daler", an abbreviation of "Joachimsdaler" – (coin) from Joachimstal – so called because it was minted from 1519 onwards using silver extracted from a mine which had opened in 1516 near Joachimstal, a town in the Ore Mountains of northwestern Bohemia. [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The weight of silver in the dollar coins varied widely over time and place; the earliest "taler" (sometimes "thaller") coins (in Scandinavian countries "daler") were about 8 grams, the Spanish created the milled "dollar" with the edge reeds to prevent scraping of the edges; and the first US dollar was about one ounce - 31 grams more or less. The Hanseatic League who were businessmen of northern Europe settled their accounts using the silver coinage and this spread down to Spain and over to the new country - the north American states. [link to www.projects.ex.ac.uk]

The period of time from 1519 to 1873 when the coinage act was passed that demonitzed silver and made gold the recognized "dollar" [link to coinschool.blogspot.com] was about 350 years. Even after that coinage act, silver continued to circulate and silver "dollars" could be found in the great basin states, especially Nevada up to about 1960. Altogether about 425 years.

The William Bryan speech "Cross of Gold" was a reaction to the switch from silver to gold: short version:

[link to www.youtube.com] (3.5 minutes) - longer 9.3 minute version from 1921:

[link to www.historicalvoices.org]



Douglas Gnazzo wrote a five part series in 2005 that says basically that silver is the lawful money of the states and gold was only priced in relationship to silver.

Here is a little thing I have been repeating lately; "Paper money cannot hold value, paper money can only serve as a title instrument or warehouse receipt describing the value and where the value is held."


Credit instruments based upon unbacked paper are then given value by the people who back it with their products and their intellectual and physical labor. The people become the final creditors when the banks fail to back the credit entries. Compare to this Barefoot Bob piece: [link to www.barefootsworld.net]

Re: CANADA introduces 99.99% silver coins for circulation. Silver is money.
. . . you see what is happening:
You put PM's in the wrong hands and thatis the end of it; you never see them at the cash register.

The smart thing to do is to give those coins and others like them to the poor people that would have no choice but to spend them. Give the coins in payment for SS checks as well. The value of the check would be sent as a form of check, to the bank, from the Govt, but the bank would be forced (under law) to give gold and silver coins to the recipient. None of these people would be able to hoard the PM's and finally therewould be so much of it around, people would start using it instead of hoarding it.

People leaving the Country would have to be metal detectored on their way out, which would eliminate the dangerous Xray and touchy feely sht, and why they donot use that method now is because of the fact the present system is to demoralize We The People.

All kinds of new laws would have to be passed, but thatis what weare: weare a nation of laws and law-abiding people.

Handling PM’s would put the fun back in our lives and it is a lot healthier for several reasons. Handling gold prevents arthritis and silver has medical value also. It would be tough on burglars and pick pocket, and all manner of criminal activity among the average citizens’ crowd.

Itwould be a load to carry, but what the heck, man; it is silver and gold. It would certainly keep the ladies out of the dark streets and bars alone, who would soon learn to be ladies again, and to appreciate the strength of a man, because of the fear of being overpowered by a thief, and men would soon be men again or be relieved of their coins. Life would become quite exciting:

Re: CANADA introduces 99.99% silver coins for circulation. Silver is money.
Back in the good old days, the value of the metal in Canadian coins was equivalent to their face value.

A pre-1968 Canadian:

Penny was made of copper.
Nickle was made of nickle.
Dime was made of pure silver.
Quarter was made of pure silver (half the size of 50c piece).
50 cent piece = pure silver (half the size of $1 coin).
Dollar coin = pure silver.

As a boy in the mid-60's it was always a thrill to get a 50c or $1 coin in change, which were often in circulation. A pre-68 dime is probably worth 10 times it's face value in silver content alone (and are worth even more to collectors), so many eagle-eyed cashiers have kept their eyes sharp for any pre-68 change floating in, but they are becoming fewer and far between these days.

Close. ;-`)

Canada used the Sterling standard of 925/1000 or 92.5% pure in the early 20th century, However they changed to 800/1000 or 80% pure in 1919.

1967 was the last year for .800 silver Canadian coins. In 1968 they minted some .500 silver but then moved to clad.

USA maintained a .900 standard until 1964, which is why the USA dollar was typically worth a little more back then. ;-`)

Re: CANADA introduces 99.99% silver coins for circulation. Silver is money.
I'm not sure these are meant for general circulation. Our pre-1965 coins were 90% silver for a reason. It had to be alloyed with something else to stand the rigors of being in people's pockets.

So... If they came out with 90% silver coinage then I would be really impressed. As it is, $80 Canadian is likely the actual value of silver per oz. Not the JP Morgan controlled spot price.

Re: CANADA introduces 99.99% silver coins for circulation. Silver is money.
so basically a silver quarter is now being face valued at 100 times what it once was. well that is steep. with gas at 3.00 a gallon a 20 dollar silver piece buys nearly 7 gallons. people should not pay any premium for these. mints should put them in circulation at face value. people should use them as money as intended. even if they r overvalued there is more intrinsic value in a 1/4 ounce silver coin than paper dollars with 20 on them. this a is reasonable first step to take to return to sound money. the excessive face value of the coins over spot silver should serve the purpose of people using them as real money at face value. use them as money as intended. why would u pay an extra dime for them. bullion is cheaper so u can get more of it if u r buying silver as an investment. congratulations to Canada for taking this step.

Canada values silver at $80/CAD per ounce.

Right from the Canadian mint website:

Exchange $20 paper for a $20 pure silver (99.99%) coin


[link to www.mint.ca]

They have a $20 pure silver coin .999 fine. It weighs 1/4 Troy ounce.

Composition 99.99% pure silver
Weight (g) 7.96
Diameter (mm) 27
Edge serrated
Face value 20 dollar

However, this is to advise an attempt to gain his paper on how English button-makers stamped small brass coins that were used in exchange for low-value commerce. Steam engines were new at that time, but the engineering and casting was current technology.

His book is blurbed here: [link to www.terry.uga.edu]

I for one would rather have 20$ fiat made from silver than 20$ fiat made from paper. ;-`)

And you've still only got 120 grains of silver...

I hear what you are saying...I really do...I just don't agree...

IMNSHO, 'Someone' got a better deal on eBay this AM...

[link to www.ebay.com]

That's 40 'silver' halves for $280 and change (including shipping)...

That's 40 x $10.8183243465 (current melt value of 'coin silver'), or $432+ "fiat Dollars" worth of silver content, AND...

It all comes in nice little, easily 'spendable' appx 174-grain bits...

Current melt value:

Look at your Canuck coins conversely...

Shit never hits the fan?...Then you've got some sweet numismatic value...

But...

You still only have 120 grains of silver though...

In a SHTF scenario, no one is going to care about 'legal tender', or 'denominations'...

It's going to be pure commodity 'value'...

I still say guns, hoes, seeds, land, etc., will be far more valuable than shiny metal chunks, but that's just me...

I hope we (nor our children's children) ever have to find out...

The Perversion of Money

THE ERRONEOUS conception of the proper
status and true function of money has led to
its perversion, the evil result of which is so
clearly evidenced by our present banking system.
In this volume I undertake to prove the following
propositions:

1st. Money is not a commodity. This being
true:

2nd. Money is no part of wealth. Hence:

3rd. Money can never become capital. Not
being capital:

4th. Money has no earning power. And it
follows:

5th. Interest, or profit, on money is unearned.

6th. Gold and silver, in common with lead and
zinc, are commodities.


7th. Money is something entirely different.

It has no more natural connection with gold and silver
than it has with lead and zinc.
We must not confuse
money with the commodity which may be chosen as its
tangible vehicle.

8th. Money is the medium of exchange and the
measure of value ; a convenient and exact method
of book-keeping
; and only as such does it properly
function.

9th. Money is brought into existence by law.

10th. A commodity cannot be created by law.
All that a law can do is to function as a law.

11th. No individual, nor body of individuals,
should be permitted to own or control a function of
law and charge others a tax for its use.

12th. The government is the true depositary
of the law and the proper executive of its functions.

13th. These powers are usurped by the bankers
and money-lenders, and the evil results of this usurpation
are colossal ; they will disrupt and destroy
civilization unless a remedy be applied.

14th. The remedy.
