Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Bullion Star researcher Ronan Manly tonight elaborates on the indefinite suspension of U.S. gold coin production just as demand had become stronger than it had been in years.

and Bars in the Safest Way

GoldCore's mission statement since 2003 has been to protect and grow the wealth of our clients, and given growing monetary, cyber, and systemic risks, it is increasingly important to take delivery or have legal title and outright ownership of fully segregated coins and bars.

But of course Canadian paper mills remain in operation, as do the computer keyboards at the New York Commodities Exchange and in the trading room at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which continue pumping out electrons, so there shouldn't be any problem maintaining the illusion that there is plenty of gold.
