I’ll bet the title of this article sounds absolutely nutty to anyone who follows the gold market. As any “gold bug” can tell you, the price of gold is down from a high of $1,024 earlier this year to a current price of $734 per ounce. Similarly, there’ve been virtually no silver bullion coins for sale for most of three weeks, and no gold bullion coins available for sale for one week. The price is clearly down and there’s a demonstrable shortage in the supply of gold bullion coins, so the title must be some kind of joke, right?
Nope. I meant every word in that title and I’ll show you why they’re true in the balance of this article.
