>
> Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
>
> The U.S. Mint has suspended sales of American Eagle gold coins and is
> refusing orders from dealers, two coin and bullion dealers confirmed
> Thursday.
>
> The mint's suspension of gold coin sales follows its tight rationing of
> sales of silver eagle coins, begun in May, when sales to the public were
> terminated and sales to the mint's 13 authorized dealers were tightly
> limited.
>
> Word of the mint's suspension of gold coin sales came from the American
> Precious Metals Exchange in Edmond, Oklahoma,
> (
http://apmexdealer.blogspot.com/2008/08/news-alert-us-mint-suspends-sales-of.html)
> and from Centennial Precious Metals in Denver, Colorado.
>
> The suspension is overwhelming evidence that the futures contract price of
> gold on the commodities exchanges is substantially below the physical market
> price and that, indeed, the commodities exchanges are being used as GATA
> long has maintained -- as part of a massive scheme of manipulation of the
> precious metals, currency, and bond markets.
>
> Michael Kosares, proprietor of Centennial Precious Metals and host of its
> Internet bulletin board, the USAGold Forum
> (
http://www.usagold.com/cpmforum/), explained Thursday:
>
> "The U.S. Mint buys direct from the refiners, and this suspension of gold
> eagle sales may be an indication that the supply line is already backing up,
> or that the mint expects that it will back up for the rest of the year. I
> wonder who would give up physical metal at these prices and under these
> circumstances except distressed sellers. The central banks are in a
> hunker-down mode as far as I can determine, and it's the mines that supply
> the refiners. So if the mint, which buys from the refiners, is having a
> difficult time locating metal, what does that tell you? I keep saying that
> we may get a surprising rubber-band effect later in the year when the
> pre-holiday/festival season kicks off in September/October. It may happen
> sooner. One of our indicators of approaching a bottom in gold is how many
> calls Centennial Precious Metals gets from our U.S.-based Indian clientele.
> Here's a quote from my office's report to me at the end of the day today:
> 'Today was a good day. ... There must have been an Indian convention where
> someone was handing out USAGold business cards.' That may give you a clue as
> to thinking in India proper and probably the rest of the Asian rim."
>
> That is, through their agents the bullion banks the Western central banks,
> desperate to prop up a corrupt and totteringt financial system, have put
> gold so much on sale that even the U.S. Mint can't find any now. The price
> reported from the commodities markets is a fiction -- a scary one, perhaps,
> but a fiction no less.
>
> You can strike a blow at the market riggers who are defrauding the world -- 
> just buy a little real metal. The dealers listed at the bottom right of this
> dispatch will be glad to help you do it.
