The first coin in the series is the Timber Wolf designed by William Woodruff.

The coins dated 2011 have a maximum mintage of 1 million making them 30 more rare than an American silver eagle.

10 oz Engelhard Silver Bar

Silver bullion bars are a popular way to buy silver. They are easily bought, sold, stacked, stored and counted. Engelhard silver bullion products are the best-known brand in the industry. Engelhard was one of the world’s largest refiners of precious metals before being purchased by BASF in 1986. Since these bars have not been issued since the 1980’s the only way to buy them is in the secondary market. Each bar is hallmarked stamped for weight and purity.

2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar

The design features an image of the legs and boots of three veterans representing courage, loyalty and sacrifice

The new 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life silver dollars check all of the boxes for a truly collectible coin. This is a coin worth going the extra mile for and buying the best certified Proof 70 coins. In our opinion this is the best commemorative silver dollar released since the Marine Corps 230th Anniversary silver dollar came out in 2005. This coin has a strong patriotic theme, a magnificent design and a large potential collector base from members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

Members of the U.S. Armed Forces have answered the call to duty and served with distinction around the world—from hitting the beaches in World War II in the Pacific and Europe, to the cold and difficult terrain of Korea, the steamy jungles of Vietnam and the desert sands of the Middle East. Americans owe a tremendous debt to those who gave so much of themselves for our country. These include the millions of disabled veterans who continue to live with the wounds and scars of military service; those who have died after living with those wounds and scars; and those who gave their lives while defending our principles of democracy.

The American Veterans Disabled for Life Commemorative Coin Act authorizes the United States Mint to mint and issue commemorative silver dollar coins in proof and uncirculated versions to honor these heroes. A surcharge of $10 from the sale of each 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar is authorized to be paid to the Disabled Veterans' LIFE Memorial Foundation to support the construction of the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington , D.C. , authorized by Congress in 2000.

The design features an image of the legs and boots of three veterans representing courage, loyalty and sacrifice. The inscription in the banner along the upper rim, THEY STOOD UP FOR US, pays tribute to our courageous disabled veterans who have survived military service injuries for our freedom. Additional inscriptions are IN GOD WE TRUST, 2010 and LIBERTY .

The reverse design depicts a forget-me-not flower at the base of a wreath wrapped in a ribbon that cradles and supports cluster of oak branches. The oak branches represent strength, while the forget-me-not is a widely recognized icon that first served as a reminder of those who fought and became disabled in World War I. The significance of the small blue flowers is attributable to an image conveyed by World War I soldiers who had seen them growing on the graves of comrades and allies who had been killed. After the war, the flower became the accepted symbol for commemorating those who had fallen. The inscriptions are Take This Moment to Honor Our Disabled Defenders of Freedom, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , E PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE DOLLAR.

Credit Suisse: There's A Huge Gold Oversupply, Time To Sell

Credit Suisse: There's A Huge Gold Oversupply, Time To Sell
Joe Weisenthal Jan. 18, 2010, 10:07 AM

A report from Credit Suisse (via ZeroHedge) argues against all this peak gold nonsense, and claims the price of the yellow metal will collapse amidst a downdraft in investor demand and a huge overupply.

Our analysis of the gold market

leads us to take a bearish stance with regard to the gold price in 2010. In 2009 we reasoned that the main drivers of the gold price were significantly linked to the trade weighted dollar, increased investment demand, central bank purchases and market sentiment. The increase in investment demand for gold ETFs, in our view, had an “accelerating and reinforcing effect” on market sentiment and the safe haven status of gold which resulted in upward pressure on the gold price which rose 24.6% during 2009. We do not expect the 2009 rate of investment in ETFs to continue at the same pace in 2010. Read more at
