Why Obama Is Poised To "Legally" Steal Your Survival Gold…
And How You Can Outsmart Him At
His Own Game AND
Profit Handsomely!

Thomson, Illinois

Dear Friend,

Pay no attention to those polls. The 50% of Americans not paying any federal income taxes at all will be thrilled to reelect Obama so they can keep living on your dime... and when he's securely ensconced in office for a second disastrous term, watch out!  Because once he's reelected, as he said in his own words, he'll "have more flexibility."

Flexibility to do what, exactly? Number one on his agenda: redistribute wealth.

Here's how it might go down.

Despite Obama's promises of hope and change, as his second term begins, the economy is still in the toilet.  The real unemployment rate is still over 20%. The mortgage crisis continues, with foreclosed properties choking the housing market and dragging down home values across the nation. As the recession continues, the next wave of defaults kicks in—and this time, it's student loan defaults. The economy plummets even further. To add insult to injury, oil prices are up again, China's economy leaves us in the dust, and nobody has any confidence in the dollar anymore. 

And you? You lost your job a few months ago because sales at your company were way down. You haven't been able to find any work... not even as a greeter at Walmart. Then, one day, your spouse comes home from work to report that he or she has been laid off too. 

It's scary, but you're pretty sure you'll be okay. You have some savings, plus you have gold stashed away for times like these. It's only a few one-ounce gold Eagles, but with gold trading at an all-time high, it should get you through the next few months.

Later that evening, you're in front of the television trying to relax when all the major networks are interrupted. President Obama comes on the air to address the American people.  He looks relaxed and mellow after his most recent golfing vacation.

 "Despite an economy that is fundamentally sound, some people would have you believe we're on the verge of a collapse," he says. "Right wing operatives and irresponsible radio talk show hosts are causing a panic.  Well-intentioned but gullible people are hoarding food, water, cash, and gold. That's why, tonight, I am declaring a national emergency.  Effective immediately, cash withdrawals from banks are limited. In order to restore confidence in the dollar by our trading partners abroad, the privilege of gold and silver ownership is temporarily suspended. All public and private sales of gold and silver bullion are suspended effective immediately. Within the next 30 days, all Americans who are hoarding gold or silver bullion are required to report it immediately to the authorities. The government will take possession of those metals, and you will be paid market rate for it, set by a special advisory board. Later, when  this crisis of confidence is over, you will be allowed to buy it back. These measures are only temporary. I call on each and every one of you to pull together and do your fair share to restore confidence in this great American economy."

Legal precedent gives Obama the "right" to confiscate your gold bullion.

Basically, you're screwed. Don't think they won't find out about your hard-earned American Eagles. Or Kruggerands. Or Canadian Maple Leaves. With the U.S. Attorney General at his beck and call, Obama is one step ahead of you. In such a scenario, he'll have warrants and subpoenas in the works to summon the customer records of every coin dealer in the country... and as a past purchaser, your name is on that list.

You'll have 30 days to turn in your gold. Obama will pay you "fair market value" for it, of course... set by an advisory board made up of his cronies. If you don't turn in your gold when ordered to do so... well, let's just say it won't be pretty. 

"But... But... They Can't Do That!"
(Oh, Yes They Can!)

And they have the Executive Orders to prove it.

It started with the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, which restricted trade with enemies of the United States.  Section 95a declared that

  • During the time of war, the President may, through any agency that he may designate, and under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe, by means of instructions, licenses, or otherwise

(a) investigate, regulate, or prohibit, any transactions in foreign exchange, transfers of credit or payments between, by, through, or to any banking institution, and the importing, exporting, hoarding, melting, or earmarking of gold or silver coin or bullion, currency, or securities.

Well, that kind of makes sense, right?  You don't want to be doing business with your enemies.

But then FDR came along and decided the 1917 act wasn't broad enough. Very quietly, on March 9, 1933, the 1917 statute was amended to broaden presidential powers.

Here's the kicker: any kind of "national emergency" could be declared... and the president could regulate or prohibit the possession of gold bullion.

That statute is still in force today.

In other words, Obama can grab your gold any time he darn well pleases!

All he has to do is claim there's a national emergency.  And that's certainly easy enough to do these days, with mortgage meltdowns, high unemployment, civil unrest, and the occasional natural disaster.     

FDR sure wasted no time.

Twenty-four hours after amending the statute, Roosevelt went ahead and declared a national emergency. He based his declaration on "heavy and unwarranted withdrawals of gold and currency from our banking institutions for the purpose of hoarding" and "speculative activity."

(You have to wonder... does that make honest, hardworking Americans today, who saved up to buy an Eagle or a Krugerrand, guilty of hoarding? Does that make people who are keeping their cash at home instead of in the bank—a growing phenomenon today—guilty of hoarding?)   

The ink was barely dry on the national emergency declaration when, less than a month later, FDR instituted his famous gold-grab.  With the stroke of a pen, citizens were required by Executive Order 6102 to turn over their gold bullion and gold coins to the Federal Reserve... and they had only 26 days to comply.

Gold owners were compensated, of course... at the government-declared rate of $20.67 per ounce. Once all the gold was turned in, FDR promptly devalued their dollars by declaring gold now worth $35.00 per ounce. Overnight, the value of the dollar plummeted.

Gold owners had been swindled by the very person who had sworn to uphold and defend their rights... and there wasn't a darn thing they could do about it.

The penalties for non-compliance were harsh.  If you refused to comply, you had to pay a $10,000 fine or 10 years in prison—or both.  Violators were brought to trial, convicted, and thrown into jail.

But here's the thing. There was one group of gold owners who got to keep their gold.  They weren't fined and they weren't dragged off to jail. 

The Loophole That Exempted Some
Lucky Gold Owners

It was all because of a man named William H. Woodin. He just happened to be FDR's Secretary of the Treasury... and he was an avid coin collector. He loved rare and unusual coins, and he lobbied hard for coin collectors.  At the end of the day, numismatic coins were exempt from the gold grab.

American gold Eagles, Canadian Maple Leaves, or South African Krugerrands are purchased mainly for the intrinsic value of the gold.  And that's what Obama could legally confiscate on the basis of Executive Orders.

But numismatic coins, or "numismatics" for short, are coins that have collectible value above and beyond the value of metal they contain. What makes them collectible? Their history, how rare they are, their popularity, and their condition, to name a few things.

In 1933, people who owned gold numismatic coins didn't have to fork them over to the Feds. This exemption was reiterated again in 1969 by the Department of the Treasury.

This numismatic loophole made smart investors very, very wealthy.

In the 1930s, lawyer Harold Barford avoided gold confiscation and turned $14,000 into $1,207,000 with his gold coin collection.

In the late 1930s, a savvy lawyer by the name of Harold Barford took advantage of the loophole and began collecting rare and unusual gold coins. He collected coins for about 15 years and then held onto them.  All in all, he spent $14,000 acquiring his collection. Many of them were downright cheap, even by yesteryear's standards – often costing as little as $10. In 1978, in the last year of his life, Barford put his collection of 242 numismatic gold coins up for auction.

The collection fetched a cool $1,207,000... a gain of 8741%!

Since the 1930s, thousands of savvy investors and collectors have turned to numismatic coins—as a hedge against inflation, as a growth vehicle, and perhaps most important of all... as protection against gold confiscation.

Yes, It's Different Today... But Here's What Makes Gold Confiscation So Attractive To Ideologues Like Obama

When gold was confiscated in 1933, it had one immediate effect—it increased the money supply. With more gold in the hands of the Feds, more paper money could be issued. With more money in circulation, the theory went, it would pull us out of the Depression.  (This idea was recently trotted out again, only the government called it "Quantitative Easing" and simply printed more money.)

But FDR confiscated gold for a second reason too. With gold under the complete control of the government, the government could decide where it would be spent.  

The fact is, just like FDR, Obama wants to be the one to decide where money is spent.  The bottom line? "Big Brother knows best." Obama doesn't think you're capable of deciding for yourself how your money should be spent. He thinks it's "unfair" that some people have more money than others. 

And if you have gold, you're on his hit list.

Alan Greenspan predicted the eventual confiscation of gold over 45 years ago.
In 1966—over 45 years ago—an up-and-comer named Alan Greenspan shined the light on this kind of thinking. His words were prophetic:

"The financial policy of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to protect themselves. This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights."

And there you have it. With Obama hell-bent on socialism, there's no way he can allow individuals to own (much) gold. But he's likely to make concessions and let people keep their numismatic coins because unlike gold bullion, he can't really claim a legal precedent for confiscating them.

Make no mistake about it, when it comes to confiscation, bullion coins are the low-hanging fruit. Over 13 million Gold Eagles have been sold since they were first minted in 1986. Tens of millions of South African Krugerrands are also privately owned.

With gold prices today, you do the math.  No wonder gold confiscation is so attractive!

Here's Why Numismatics Are The
Perfect All-Weather Strategy

Maybe you think I'm full of beans. Maybe you're a skeptic about gold confiscation. On the other hand, maybe you're convinced you'll hear a knock on your door some day soon with one of Obama's jack-booted minions outside demanding your gold bullion coins.  Either way, there are four good reasons why owning numismatics is a smart move, come heck or high water.

Reason #1: Rare coins offer a hedge against the ravages of both inflation and hyperinflation. 
We've seen it before and we'll see it again. When inflation goes crazy, investor money flows to vehicles that will protect their wealth against the eroding value of the dollar. We're already seeing it now, as investors flock to gold and silver bullion. But there's only so much of it to go around.  In an inflationary environment, the market for collectibles explodes. After bullion, where do investors go? To numismatic coins, with increasing rarities and increasingly higher grades. The last time we saw this phenomenon, it was during the high inflation years of the 1970s... and we're on the cusp of it again.

Here's the thing to remember about buying rare coins: sure, you're paying with an inflated fiat currency to buy them.  But by doing so, you're securing money that will be stable in the future in the event of hyperinflation. It's your insurance policy against inflation. In fact, in times of high inflation or hyperinflation, your coin collection may be worth even more.  That's because demand surges as investors flee from traditional investments like stocks and bonds and seek out something that will hold its value.

Reason #2: Rare coins have "survival currency" value.
Yes, with numismatics, you can have your cake and eat it too. It's entirely possible to choose coins that command only a very slight collectible premium over the melt value. Choosing coins like these means you have a survival currency if bullion is confiscated and an investment that will appreciate as a collectible over the long term. (I'll tell you more about how to build your base of "survival numismatics" in a moment.)

Reason #3: Rare coins are an investment with an inherent guarantee. That guarantee is this: you will never lose the value of the gold or silver content of that coin. It's tangible wealth. You can't say the same about any stock, bond, or other "paper" investment.

Reason #4: Rare coins can make you filthy rich.
We've seen it again and again. Rare coins appreciate over time... if you know what you're doing. Look at Lelan Rogers. He was a passionate collector who pursued two rare half-dollar coins for years until he was able to acquire them in 1968. It was a fairly large investment, believed to be about $25,000. Rogers was overjoyed when he finally acquired them, and held onto them for 27 years. In 1995, he sold them at auction... for $847,000.

That was a gain of 3288%.

A nice little retirement nest egg, wouldn't you agree?

Stories abound of collectors, both amateur and professional, raking in windfalls because of their rare coins:   

  • Amateur coin collector Garry Cucci of Vermont snagged an interesting looking coin at a flea market in 1969 for $1. He held onto it as a good luck charm for decades.  In 2012, he finally decided to get the 1776 coin appraised... and was shocked and delighted to learn it would probably fetch well over $100,000 at auction.

    An amateur collector paid just $225 for a coin similar to this one... and it later sold at auction for $57,970.
  • In 2006, a collector purchased a rare Brazilian coin, the gold Pedro I Coronation Piece, for $69,000. Only 64 of these 1822 coins were ever minted, to honor guests at the Inauguration Ball of Pedro I.  In April 2012 at auction, it fetched a cool $138,000. Not a bad return for a 6-year investment.
  • In the 1960s, a Washington D.C. area resident and amateur coin collector bought a rare 1842-O $10 Liberty Eagle gold coin from, of all places, the Woodward and Lathrop department store. He paid just $225 for it. In 2011, it sold at auction for $57,970.
  • High quality coins can go up, up, up, as demonstrated by a gold 1909-O Indian Head $5 half eagle.  The specimen in question sold for $71,500 in 1989, and was sold again in 1998 for $374,000. In 2011, it fetched a whopping $690,000.
  • In 2004, a coin collector sold a gold 1911-D Indian Head half eagle for $166,750. The same coin was sold at auction again in 2011—and brought in $299,000.

The bottom line is this: rare coins will always be worth something. In fact, you are much less likely to be wiped out by investing in rare coins than you would be for investing in stocks... even if inflation wasn't a concern!

But there's a right way and a wrong way to go about it... and that's precisely why we are so pleased to introduce How to Profit From The Coming Numismatic Explosion.

There's never been a better time to invest in numismatic coins... as long as you know what you're doing. This invaluable manual will show you step-by-step how you can build a coin collection that: 

  • Protects you from gold confiscation
  • Functions as survival coinage should the you-know-what hit the fan
  • Helps you build long-term wealth

Like The Old Saying Goes, "Silver For Survival, Gold For Wealth"

While we've talked about the confiscation of gold bullion, it's important to note that silver has an important place in your anti-confiscation strategy as well. And that's where "junk silver" comes in.

While some pre-1964 U.S. silver coins—known as "junk silver"— have collectible value, most don't... and yet, they can be extremely important in an economic meltdown. How to Profit From The Coming Numismatic Explosion describes exactly where junk silver coins fit into your survival plan (see page 53). You'll learn why the government cannot legally confiscate junk silver, and how much you should keep on hand (see page 91).  Junk silver is widely bought and sold on eBay; you'll learn how to avoid many of the pitfalls that can happen if you choose to go this route (see Chapter 12).

Are You Letting Valuable Profits
Slip Through Your Fingers
Every Day?

Numismatic collectors frequently come across valuable coins while transacting their daily business.

It's astounding how few people really understand the value of rare or unusual coins ... even when their own father is a collector.  One young man in Corbett, Oregon, stole his father's coin collection... and poured it into a Coinstar machine, which valued it at only $450.  The coin owner never recovered all of his coins.

Coinstar machines are just one way that collectors come across valuable coins as they transact their daily business. They report finding things like a seated Liberty Half Dime (in a Coinstar machine), silver Roosevelt dimes (in change from a fast food restaurant), and a 1946 Walking Liberty Half-Dollar (the cashier thought it was an old quarter).

One coin collector admits, "I have worked in retail for 25 years, and I have seen just about everything come through my cash registers, from silver coinage, to obsolete denominations, to silver American Eagles and commemorative coins being spent at face value for cigarettes and lottery tickets!"

And a store cashier reported to his fellow collectors on an Internet discussion board, "Last week I got another good silver haul at face value from my cash register. A customer bought gas and cigarettes with several Ike dollars, including an uncirculated 1971S silver issue. There were also several silver halves from 1964-1969, as well as a 1962 Franklin half and a gorgeous 1902 Barber half. Best of all there was a 1922 Peace Dollar, and two Morgan Dollars, an 1889-O, and an 1890-S, all in VF or better.... There is lots of stuff just waiting to be found."  

The gold in this coin is worth only about $250. The coin is expected to fetch up to $4,000,000 at auction.

The astonishing thing is, even bank tellers can be oblivious to the value of old coins. One coin collector reports that he asked for half dollars at the bank... and got a roll of never-before-circulated 1964 (90% silver) half dollars.  

One of the joys of collecting numismatic coins is that they can be worth far more than the actual gold or silver in them. Take the 1870-S gold $3 piece from the San Francisco Mint. It contains just 4.5 grams of gold (about 0.16 ounce). The gold in this rare coin is barely worth $250. Yet, as of May 2012, this coin was expected to fetch up to $4,000,000 at auction.

Now do you see the upside potential of numismatic coins?

How To Build A Good Base of High-Value,
Low-Confiscation Risk, Near-Bullion Coins

In How To Profit From The Coming Numismatic Explosion you'll get a step-by-step description of how and why to build a collection of coins that are technically numismatic— but that don't carry a huge premium over the intrinsic metal value. You want to do exactly the opposite of what most coin collectors do—you want to acquire coins of the lowest quality that meets your purpose.  Think of these coins as your "survival numismatics."

And that gives you a big advantage. At this stage, you're not competing with other collectors for the "prettiest" coins... and you're not buying them for bragging rights or to trot them out at coin shows for the approval of other collectors. You're just buying them because you're smart enough to know you may need to have a reserve of actual money at your fingertips.

How To Profit From The Coming Numismatic Explosion breaks it all down for you.  You'll discover:

  • The foreign gold coins to look for that have just enough collectible value to prevent confiscation... but with a low premium over melt value  
  • Where you can find a free, reliable price guide for your numismatic coins  
  • How to use the free price guide to acquire numismatics with the lowest collectible premium  
  • Why you never want to buy the "prettiest" numismatic coin for this phase of your strategy  
  • Why you should avoid copper and nickel numismatic coins  
  • How much coinage you should strive to collect as your "base" and why.  

Once You've Built Your Base,
It's Time To Treat Rare Coins As Investments

Once you have a good base of low-confiscation risk numismatic coins, you're ready to start building some real wealth.  This is where there's major upside potential. Don't let it confuse you, but you'll be taking the exact opposite approach that you did when you acquired your "base." Now, you'll be seeking out the highest quality coins. Here's what quality can do for you in the long term... and it doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg!

If you don't have tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest in a single coin (and not many of us do), no worries... because there are plenty of lower cost numismatic coins that still have tremendous upside potential.

In 1997, author and rare coin investor David L. Ganz assembled a rare coin portfolio worth about $8,300. What's especially notable is that each coin in the portfolio was only worth about $86. But by 2010, the value of his entire portfolio had tripled, to $24,400.

How To Profit From The Coming Numismatic Explosion will equip you to create a successful strategy for profiting from numismatics and protecting your coins from confiscation.

You'll also learn:

  • Why diversification is so important
  • Why rare coins offer a much better risk "floor" than most investments
  • The ideal length of time to hold your coins  
  • The criteria to use to buy coins to get the best investment performance  
  • What grade coins you should look for, and why 
  • Six factors that increase the value of a coin
  • Why a 2000-year-old ancient Roman coin can be worth less than a 20th century U.S. coin  
  • Why you should never, ever clean a numismatic coin  
  • Scams and pitfalls to watch out for when buying coins
  • Why you must have a plan before you start your collection
  • The advantage of collecting to complete a set
  • 7 types of coin collections, and the pros and cons of each type
  • And much more!

No other current publication on numismatics will give you the practical, commonsense plan that How To Profit From The Coming Numismatic Explosion does. Nowhere else will you find such expert advice on how to strike just the right balance between survival purchases and investment purchases.

Even if Obama decides not to confiscate gold, the information in this book is extremely valuable. With a deficit of $15 trillion, and climbing every day, it's only a matter of time until hyperinflation hits. Very, very few Americans have any idea how to protect their assets in such a scenario. With this book, you'll be among the select few.

I'm sure you'll agree that this kind of information is worth far more than $19.97. But that's all it will take to put this information in your hands.
