The Perth and US Mints gold and silver sales remain at depressed levels. Silver Eagle collapsed. April.

The first nine months of this year have seen the mint sell [...]

British Pobjoy Mint offers aid to Hurrican Irma victims in the British Virgin Islands We've all been reading reports of the horrifying destructive power of nature yet again with the passing of Hurricane Irma through the Caribbean and onto mainland America, so it's good to see a mint make an effort.
