Idaho House of Representatives Votes Overwhelmingly to Remove Income Taxation from Precious Metals

Boise, Idaho (March 14, 2017) – By an overwhelming 56-13 margin, the Idaho House of Representatives today voted to end all Idaho taxation on precious metals, e.g. gold and silver coins and bars. Bill sponsor Representative Mike Moyle (R) and the entire Republican caucus voted for the measure.  If the Republican-controlled Idaho Senate follows suit and Governor Butch Otter (R) signs the bill, Idaho citizens will better be able to use gold and silver as a form of savings which protects against ongoing devaluation of America’s currency. Backed by the Sound Money Defense League, Idaho Freedom Foundation, Money Metals Exchange, and grassroots activists, HB 206 expands Idaho’s existing sales tax […]

States Consider Removing Income and Sales Taxes from the Monetary Metals

States Consider Removing Income and Sales Taxes from the Monetary Metals

Listen to the Podcast Audio: Your browser does not support the podcast player element. DOWNLOAD MP3 Precious metals markets can certainly be volatile from week to week, but over time they are a more reliable store of value than Federal Reserve Notes. Gold and silver remain the world’s most enduring and most widely recognized form of money. And, as spelled out in the U.S. Constitution, gold and silver coins are legal tender. Individual states thus can formally recognize gold and silver coins as legal tender alternatives to Federal Reserve Note dollars. Both Utah and Oklahoma have passed legal tender laws in recent years recognizing gold and silver as money. The […]

A Whole New World of Gold Demand Is Opening Up… Muslims

A Whole New World of Gold Demand Is Opening Up… Muslims

Most analysis of gold and silver markets tends to be U.S.-centric. However, the next secular trend in precious metals markets may have less to do with U.S. debt, U.S. politics, the U.S. central bank, and the U.S. dollar and more to do with a gigantic new source of demand. It’s not the 1970s anymore. Back then, big moves in the metals markets were centered on United States. The great gold and silver mania of the late 1970s was driven by inflation fears and a rush of speculative demand. Although coin dealers struggled to keep up, there was no actual global shortage of physical metal, and spot prices crashed after manic […]

Let’s Get Real: Why You Must Own Precious Metals

Let’s Get Real: Why You Must Own Precious Metals

It can be difficult, even for dyed-in-the-wool perma-bulls to hold onto precious metals, let alone buy more. We see the Dow trading above 20,000 (placing this into perspective, is that since 2000, the Dow is up around 65% versus gold’s 300%), gold and silver currently languishing below multiple “resistance” points; suspended just above a couple of “support” lines. For long-suffering holders, it feels like the fabled Sword of Damocles dangling over their head, suspended by that proverbial single strand of hair. If you fit the above description, the following chart should provide good cheer. You’ll notice that since 1925, a few years before the Great Depression, up until the current […]

Stock markets around the world were plummeting with circuit breakers triggered on US equity futures markets.

2017: Gold and Silver’s Year of “Public Recognition”

2017: Gold and Silver’s Year of “Public Recognition”

In all probability, December 2015 marked the bottom of the cyclical gold and silver bear market – a bear cycle that had been in play since silver topped in May 2011 and gold in September of the same year. During the fourth quarter 2015, share price declines of the precious metals mining companies tapered off once the last of the weak hands gave up and sold their positions to stronger, forward-looking investors. If you go to a free chart service like stockcharts.com, you can choose any number of mining stocks and look at their January 19 daily price action. On this date – for most of the top and second-tier […]
