May 21, 2018 — Gold prices fell last week, dropping below $1,300/oz for the first time since December. Silver fared a bit better, but lost about $.25/oz.

The U.S. dollar rally continues to weigh on metals prices. And demand for safe-haven assets remains weak despite higher oil prices and escalating geopolitical conflict. Americans are finding little to worry about in the markets these days.

To the extent investors are watching economic data, there will be reports out this week on home sales and durable goods orders. The minutes from the most recent FOMC meeting will be published on Wednesday, but don’t expect any surprises. Most experts anticipate the next rate hike in June.

Practically nobody enters the foreign exchange markets looking to buy and hold. Currency trading is generally a short-term game, and there isn’t much regard for analysis of the longer-term fundamentals.

Gold Is The King Monetary Asset, Not Bitcoin

First published by Money Metals here:
https://www.moneymetals.com/news/2018/05/18/gold-king-monetary-asset-001479

There seems to be a lot of misinformation being peddled on the internet about gold and bitcoin. One major misconception is the notion that bitcoin will replace gold as a monetary instrument. Some analysts, once stanch precious metals advocates now turned crypto aficionados, believe in such theories that there is too much gold in the world to be used as money or that it is now just a barbarous relic. Just a year or so ago, these same supposed analysts were criticizing the Mainstream media financial network talking heads for calling gold as a barbarous relic, but now have jumped on the bandwagon.

The Canadian Maple Leaf Stands Out Because of Its Purity

Of the top three most popular gold bullion coins, the Maple Leaf is the only one minted from .9999 fine gold. Both the South African Krugerrand and the American Eagle are 22 karat purity (.9167). This difference in purity is not a large factor when it comes to absolute value because the actual gold weight contained in all three coins is the same. The Eagle and Krugerrand simply have a bit higher gross weight due to the alloy metals used. But some investors do prefer the higher purity and the particular luster that comes with it.

When it comes to modern 1 oz bullion coins, only the Krugerrand has a longer history. Walter Ott, who was born in Austria, served as Royal Canadian Mint’s Chief Engraver and Director of Art and created the coin’s design. He wanted a gold coin that would compete with the Krugerrand with its purity being a symbol of Canadian national pride.
