Another excuse not to mint gold eagles

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Here's an interesting newspaper story and an
appeal from a GATA supporter, Richard L.
Harmon of Colorado. Please post it as seems
useful.

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary
Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc.

From the Rocky Mountain News in Denver:

"American Eagle gold coin prices jumped as much as
6 percent after the U.S. Mint said blanks from one of its
suppliers failed to meet government standards. The mint
said supplies of 1-ounce American Eagles will be
disrupted at least through the middle of August. It was
the second week in a row a batch was rejected."

Remember earlier this year when they had "problems"
minting enough silver eagles? More lies? More
manipulation?

Are they trying to lower demand for overall gold by not
stepping into the gold market and allow a higher
premium for coins over spot?

Write Congress today and demand that Treasury
Secretary Summers fill the demand or step down. His
job description requires he fill the needs of the public
for all currency! Three times in one year is more than
coincidence!
