Silver Philharmonics, Memorial Day Vacation

Hello All! Today we received a shipment of beautiful 1 oz Silver Austrian Philharmonics. The uncirculated coins are dated 2008 and are very attractive. These sell for the same amount as 1 oz Silver Canadian Maples, which are $2.24 over spot for singles and $2.04 for 20 or more, making these Philharmonics less expensive than 1 oz American Silver Eagles.

We do not often have silver Philharmonics in stock and encourage customers to get them while they are still available!!

Please take note that Monarch will be closing this Saturday, May 29 for the Memorial Day Holiday.

US Mint Slows Silver Eagle Production, Franklin Pierce Dollars Out!

Hello all! It has been quite a while since last I blogged. I blame it mostly on how busy we have been lately and how maddening the markets have been! I might also have to accept some of the blame, although I don't want to very badly. :) I hope that everyone got to read about the benefits of 90% silver, as it really is a good way to purchase silver.

In coin news today, the US Mint announced that it is now producing fewer Silver Eagles. For the past few months we have all been enjoying the luxury of as many Silver Eagles as we want, but no longer. I have not yet heard if there is a reason behind this move, but it has resulted in higher premiums on Silver Eagles.

In other news, the newest Presidential Dollars, President Franklin Pierce, have been released and we have them in stock! They are $2 for singles and $35 for a roll. Get them while they're hot!

Stay tuned for further news regarding Silver Eagle production.

Silver 90% Coin

Hello all! Here at Monarch, we love 90% silver coin. Also known as "junk", this form of silver comes in dimes, quarters, and halves. Its benefits are outstanding and include price, use, and liquidity. We highly recommend to investors of metals products to add junk silver to their portfolio.

Low cost helps 90% silver coin gain popularity amongst investors and dealers alike. It is sold closer to spot than any other silver product. 90% silver coin is sold by the dollar face, which means 10 dimes, 4 quarters, and 2 halves and each dollar face contains approximately .715 oz of silver.

Many investors enter the commodities market with fears that the current economy may someday collapse and that the dollar may someday lose its value. They worry that one day in the future, they may need to use silver and gold to make purchases for necessities such as food, water, and other emergency supplies. 90% silver coin is ideal for this kind of investor as it would trade easily for small, inexpensive items such as milk, bread, eggs, etc.

It is this ability to be traded in small quantities that appeals to many people. For instance, if a person is in need of a small amount of cash, 90% silver coin can be broken down into small lots. It is also quite easy to store in large lots and to be traded in large quantities at a time, making it a liquid investment.

The main benefits that most investors see in 90% silver coin is its low price and its versatility. It is a great way to gather silver without paying a high price.

Come in to Monarch where we have 90% silver coin available for purchase!

Gold Reaches a New All-Time High

Gold has hit a new all-time high at 1233.70 as of 1:21 pm on May 11, 2010. In a day where metals markets have risen sharply, people may ask why this would occur.

There are many theories regarding gold & silver's sudden climb. Some harbor worries about Europe (Greece in particular), the oil spill, the uncertainty of the US economic recovery, and inflation.

Most recently, there has been word of an open federal investigation of JPMorgan & Chase. This investigation is centered around charges that the company has been fixing the price of silver. These accusations were published by the New York Post and the Post claims that JPMorgan fixed the silver market by flooding the market with silver when the spot price should have risen on account of economic developments, etc. These are serious allegations, as such actions are very illegal.

There are many people that believe Silver should be much higher than it currently is, and this accusation of JPMorgan fixing the market lends some credit to the belief.
