The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Maine legislator wants state to join AZ, TX, UT, and ID by removing sales tax from purchase of gold and silver

On April 11 a state Senator from Maine is seeking to follow the growing trend of other states in recognizing gold and silver as money once again by calling for the removal of state sales tax from the purchase of precious metals.

Speaking this week with the state's Committee on Taxation, Senator Eric Brakey is pushing a measure to have state taxes removed from the buying and selling of gold and silver bullion since many dealers and buyers are simply going across the border to states which currently do not have tax impositions on precious metal transactions.

If Sen. Eric Brakey gets his way, buying silver and gold may get cheaper for Mainers.
State Sen. Eric Brakey, R-Auburn, is pushing a measure to exempt gold and silver coins and bullion from the state sales tax. 
Brakey, an Auburn Republican, is pushing a measure to exempt gold and silver coins and bullion from the state sales tax. 
Douglas Carnrick of Winslow told lawmakers that many coin collectors and investors simply buy their gold and silver out of state — and then forget that they’re still required to pay the sales tax on their own later. 
Since about half of the states don’t impose sales tax on gold and silver purchases, it’s not hard for buyers to avoid shelling out for sales tax online or by traveling to nearby states that exempt precious metals sales. 
“The reason for this is, gold and silver coinage and bullion are not normal goods like everything else we charge a sales tax on,” Brakey told the Committee on Taxation this week. He said they are a form of currency for many. - Sun Journal

Gold prices rise back over $1600 as demand for gold coins increases

Even in a shortened holiday market, gold was the largest winner as it climbed $25 to $1624.  This move is on top of a $44 climb last week as investors realize there is little safety in bonds or currencies around the globe.

At the same time, outside the euro area, global crisis has entered a stage of stabilization (not growth, yet), which means that demand for gold as safe haven (rather than a hedge) should be moderating as well. This can be expected to have a more modest impact on coins sales than on gold sales and especially ETFs-instrumented gold sales.

In other words, fundamentals (inflation expectations, longer-term savings and investment objectives) should be driving current demand for gold coins.

And, this is exactly what we are seeing. In June 2012, the US Mint sold 54,500oz of coinage gold, up on 53,000 in May 2012. Total for H1 2012, US Mint sales of gold coins in terms of total weight sold are down 41.3% on H1 2011 and it is down 49.8% on H1 2010 and 50.3% on H1 2009. Dramatic? Sure, when one disregards consideration of drivers for 2009-2011 demand for coins being coincident with extreme risks in other markets. - Goldcore via Zerohedge
As the global banking system and sovereign nations keep trying to push the cratering economic system another few months, more and more consumers are not only taking their cash from insolvent banks, but realizing that gold is the only wealth protection their have.

Gold demand surged in 2011 on new survey

The Thompson Rueters gold survey for 2011 was recently released and the results showed a large surge in gold coin and bar sales globally last year.  Predictions for 2012 also point towards a steady climb back up towards $2000 an ounce, with potentially higher gains should central banks begin to monetize en masse.

Thomson Reuters GFMS annual gold survey released today shows that global investment increased 20% last year to $80 billion, leading to the nominal high last September of $1,920/oz. This is primarily attributed to the physical buying of bullion.

Gold may climb to a new nominal record above $2,000/oz by early next year as concern about currencies and low interest rates encourage investors to seek a protection of wealth, Thomson Reuters GFMS said.

Gold coin purchases gained 13% last year and will increase 2.7% in the first half.

Purchases of gold bars increased by 36% to nearly 2,000 (1,194) metric tonnes, concentrated in China, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
East Asia demand for gold bars rose 53% to 456 metric tonnes.
India rose 9% to 297 metric tonnes and western markets demand for gold bars rose 41% to 335 metric tonnes.

Central banks increased net purchases by a massive fivefold to 430 tons last year, and may buy another 190 tons in the first half, GFMS said. - Goldcore via Zerohedge
