Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

Mike Zielinski, editor of the Mint News Blog, today contrasts the efforts made recently by the U.S. Mint to keep up with gold and silver coin demand with the efforts made by the Canadian, Austrian, and Perth mints. The U.S. Mint does not compare well. Zielinski's commentary is headlined "Final Thoughts on U.S. Mint Product Cancellations" and you can find it at the Mint News Blog Internet site here:
