The story behind the gold bugs'' dirty little secret

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Some of us "gold bugs" have a dirty little secret. (In
fact, some of us have a lot of dirty little secrets, but
that's a topic for an Internet site less family-oriented
than this one!)

One of those secrets is an admiration for silver as well
as gold, and we think the silver price has been
collusively suppressed just as the gold price has.

But there is good reason to believe that things will
be changing, and there is a very interesting new report
on silver by coin and bullion dealer (and GATA
supporter) Ed Lee of Lee Certified Coins in New
Hampshire. The report starts with the disclosure that
the U.S. government's inventory of coinable silver is
nearing depletion, and that legislation has been
introduced in Congress to get the government buying
silver again.

The Lee Certified Coins home page is here:

Here's the link to the silver report there:
