Today, the day has come to officially tell that I’ll be leaving this website. Because, I need more time to hoard copper pennies before the Canadian government removes it from circulation on February 2013 so I’ll be inactive for a long time. I didn’t have any time to hoard copper pennies since September 2012. I was focusing too much on this website so I didn’t had any time for coin roll hunting because the news given by this website are great and they kept my attention so nice job Doc and Bullrun! Thank you for keeping us all informed without spreading propaganda like the mainstream medias. It’s people like you who have opened my mind about the fundamentals of precious metals. I’m glad that I’m not like the others who are still unaware about the current financial situation. So, I’ll be back again on this website around February 2013 and the reason why I want to hoard copper pennies is because copper is also undervalued like silver and I want to diversify my wealth. I would also recommend all Americans to hoard their copper pennies before they are removed from circulation like the silver coins!
My other question is how did everyone discovered the fundamentals of precious metals?
In my case, it was around September 2011 where I was doing some research on YouTube (I don’t know why I searched on YouTube instead of using Google!) to find out if some of my old coins were valuable.
On October 2011, I then found out that they aren’t that valuable and then, I found related videos on the right side of YouTube talking about why we should all buy physical gold and silver. I looked at one of them and I told myself ”What’s the point of buying gold and silver”, ” I don’t need them” and ”What do you want me to do with them”.
After watching multiple videos explaining the fundamentals of precious metals, I finally discovered that the reason why all prices go up is because the dollar is losing its purchasing power and precious metals preserve your purchasing power. I told myself ”What was I doing during all these years holding pieces of paper made out of thin air as my hard earned savings”.
Finally on November 2011, I have decided to buy my first precious metal which was a 1994 Silver Maple Leaf coin for 40$ and since then, I keep buying precious metals.
Just like watching TV, being on the Internet can be a huge waste of time that could be used more profitably doing something else. Sites such as this one is no exception, mostly good for entertainment or socializing value only. You don’t need to know anything more than you should save metals to be prepared. Most of the information is just a rehash of what you already know, are predictions that vary all over the place, or opinions of people that think they are smarter than everyone else. Humans have a problem with thinking they are superior to the next guy, when in fact they are not really as smart as they think they are. This ego mania humans tend to have is a left over of primitive survival thinking similar to the fight or flight that is in our nature. Educated ego maniacs are the worst ones. The only thing important that comes out of any culture is it’s art. Once the truly intelligent people have taken care of their Earthly needs then creating music, painting, sculpturing, etc becomes the only thing left to express your place in the universe. When I say this I don’t count rap music as art. Good luck and great decision.
" Bought some ASE's from JM Bullion and they were Scary s l o w. And I am talking months, not weeks for the order to arrive.
They do not post a phone number on their website so that you can call them if you need to.
Provident - bought from them and they are o.k. in my book.

" Yeah, hit JM last month. Took FOREVER to finally receive the metal. I'm talking a few weeks; unacceptable. This was metal they said they had in stock. Provident is out of my 5 oz'rs today; bummer. Probably have to check SD or Gns'ville. "Reply To: Pawn Shop
" JM Bullion is also very good with prices, i have read a few negative reviews so wouldn't necessarily endorse them, but have read some ok reviews too... maybe check them out as well. "Reply To: Pawn Shop
Thanks for the link. No, I have not bought from SD. About a month ago I attempted to and found the price/shipping higher than Provident. I actually found Provident after pricing SD. Provident was very fast and easy to deal with. Heck, even checking during this post thei... "Reply To: Pawn Shop

" PMG have you bought from SD Bullion? I have purchased from them twice, with no problems. Just received a 'junk' order and with shipping included, the price came to 16.5 x Face. Before buying from them I checked around, and SD Bullion had the best price I could find. And although I have never ... "Reply To: Pawn Shop
