Bullion Porn

It’s not a great week for metals so I thought maybe you would like to see some of the bullion that others have collected, so here are some examples of Youtube Bullion Porn, enjoy!







I’ll have to think about bringing all of mine together (or at least a representative sample) and do my own little porn movie for my readers.

These little videos create interest for both collectors and wanna be collectors/investors, they also stoke your greed to have more, help you believe that you're doing the right thing with your money and that you are not alone.

Me, I just like to see all the different products because when I'm buying I try to mix it up so get a variety shapes, sized and mint marks. I find this it makes it a little more interesting and when you are showing it off to others they sometimes understand the collectability aspect of getting all different bars more than just simple accumulation. Now given a big difference in premiums I won't go out of my way for most bars but I would love a Wall Street Mint silver bar, the 10 oz Maple, other sizes in Bache bars, more of the 2, 2.5 and 5 peso Mexican gold coins and a gold Sovereign or two.

What are the favourite pieces of your collection? What do you want?

Lord of Wealth,
Do you have any comment to make about the $10 million in Gold that disappeared
from the Canadian Royal Mint?

Thank You,

Rather disgusted mostly.

While I'd like to hear the results of the investigation first I will say this, even if its just an accounting glitch this is an amateurish way of running one of the most respected mints in the world. The mint is know world wide for inovation and quality and yet self monitors so badly that it can't keep track of its own bullion is just %#%^$#%# pitifull.

While I have previously endorsed the gold rrsps offered through Questrade I'm now not so sure I'd feel save using the costodial services of the RCM to store my RRSP gold.

Of course there is always the possibility that this happened because the mint had to cover some bad paper play with its real assets. If that is the case that would upset me more than mere theft.

CSB,

My girlfriend and I (or my whole silver possy) gotta take you out for a beer or something sometime. You're from Toronto, right? I live near Dufferin and Eglinton, if you're interested.

I commute and and because of little kids and such don't get out much, but perhaps a night out with a group of silver fans might not be a bad idea. Bring out the silver bugs and a few not quite there yet and have a drink and disucssion.
