The best-selling author of “Rich Dad Poor Dad” Robert Kiyosaki said that this may be the last chance to buy gold and silver at such low prices as the market wrap up a very volatile year.

He forecasted that the low of the gold market will be around USD 1,800 per oz and silver will be around USD 24 per oz.

Robert Kiyosaki is a big proponent of holding gold, silver, and Bitcoin in a portfolio. He suggested his Twitter followers that the current price levels might be the cheapest option to buy precious metals before the rally kicks in.

The King’s portrait will first appear on a £5 coin and 50p commemorating the life and legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The 50p will enter circulation to mark the historic moment, and coins featuring His Majesty and Queen Elizabeth II will co-circulate in the UK.

Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Alan Turing

Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Alan Turing

The Royal Mint in UK is presenting a new coin series – Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Alan Turing.

Alan Mathison Turing was an English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, and cryptanalyst born in London. During the Second World War, Turning worked for the Government Code and Cypher School. His codebreaking logic saved estimated millions of live by shortening the war. 

After the war, Turning worked at the National Physical Laboratory, where he designed the Automatic Computing Engine, one of the first designs for a stored-programme computer. In 1948, he joined Max Newman’s Computing Machine Laboratory where he helped develop the Manchester computers. Despite of his various accomplishments, Turing was never fully recognized in UK during his lifetime. It is because much of his work was covered by the Official Secrets Act.

And in 1952, Turning was prosecuted for homosexual acts. He then accepted hormone treatment and died 16 days before his 42ndbirthday from cyanide poisoning. 

In 2009, the UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown made an official public apology on behalf of the UK government for “the appalling way Turing was treated”. Queen Elizabeth II granted a posthumous pardon in 2013 which has since led to further pardons to gay men and created what has become known as “Turing’s Law”. In recent years, Turing has become a figurehead for gay rights.

In 2022, The Royal Mint celebrates the man with a remarkable mind with a UK 50p coin available as a gold Proof, silver Proof, silver Proof Piedfort and Brilliant Uncirculated edition.

Gold Price Down USD 50 on the Day Indicating Markets in Chaos.

The markets in chaos: precious metals prices down, Bitcoin price hits lowest level since December 2020 and stocks plunges. Analysts warn of panic selling as investors are pre-reacting to the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike on this Wednesday following a high inflation rate of the U.S.

The inflation is now expecting at annual pace of 8.6%. economists believe the Fed will need to get more aggressive to tame the inflation. The U.S. dollar reacted positively to the expected rate hike and goes stronger. In response to rising yields and a strong U.S. dollar, Gold saw a very sharp sell off as it plunged around USD 50 per oz on the day.

The precious metals are struggling as investors are still digesting inflation data and the looming economy downturn in China caused by the latest outbreak in Beijing and Shanghai. The latest lockdowns could lead to a much more extended period of supply chain issues and disruption.

Even though the market expects that the Fed will have an aggressive rate hike, but it is still not enough to get the inflation under control.

in the meantime, gold remains at risk of a more significant selloff. The support at USD 1,800 per ounce might not hold and we will see a retreat towards USD 1,750 per ounce.

2022 Canadian Super Incuse SML Rose Gilded Proof Silver Coin



 

2022 Canadian Super Incuse SML Rose Gilded Proof Silver Coin

 

The collection of double-incuse Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin was introduced by Royal Canadian Mint in 2018.

Then, Royal Canadian Mint followed it up with gold- (2019) and black rhodium-plated (2020) versions.

Afterward, the mint took art to all-new depths with the first Super Incuse SML in 2021. While the previous incuse coins had a standard incuse depth of
0.3 mm, thanks to new technology developed by our Research and Development team, on the Super Incuse SML the intricately engraved maple leaf sits 1.5 mm below the coin’s surface – that’s nearly 40% of the coin gauge!

The 2021 version was sold out rapidly in every coin shop. Collectors around the world was so desperate to get one!

Precious metals hit hard as Fed Chair Powell Stays


Gold and silver futures were sharply down the U.S. trading session Monday while President Joe Biden confirmed Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell for his second term. The precious metals prices were under a huge pressure and selling pressure accelerated overnight. 

December gold was last down nearly USD 41.10 at USD 1,810.4 and December Comex Silver was last down USD 0.421 at USD 24.36 per ounce.

Someone argued that another term for Powell was just an excuse for bullions future traders taking profits after recent good price gains. Some analysts believe bullion markets are likely to continue to be supported by the inflation trade and to be sought out as a hedge against rising and even problematic price inflation.
