Our Year-End Schedule
(December 22, 2008) We thank all of you for making 2008 our 8th consecutive year of record sales. Now it’s time for our staff to have a break. We will be taking orders through Noon on Christmas Eve, and we’ll return for new business on Monday January 5th, 2009.
It seems a shame to step away from such a strong gold rally! As I write this, gold is trading for $100 more than it was only twelve trading days ago. Our staff wrote, wrapped, and shipped some $40 million more in gold this year than they did in 2007. To say the least, all of us here are ready for a rest.

Although we will not be answering the phones from Christmas Eve afternoon until Monday 1/5/09, we will still be shipping and receiving packages and payments. I will also answer emails sent my way over the next week or so.

The US Mint will be shipping 2009-dated gold Eagles in the 1-ounce size the first week in January, and we expect to have an allocation of those on sale when we return on Monday January 5th.

In general, the good news is that we are getting a increasing supply of bullion items in stock. We have been offering over the past couple of weeks the 2009-dated Maple Leafs, Austrian Philharmonics, and Chinese Pandas, as shipments of each of those are coming in almost every day.

Pamp Suisse gold bullion bars are also becoming available, and we soon expect to be offering Pamp .9999 gold products not only in the poured 100-gram and kilogram sizes, but also the die-struck 1-ounce and ten-ounce Fortuna bars.

The gold bullion shortages that we saw in the last quarter of 2008 are, we hope, soon to be a thing of the past. I have every confidence the 2009 will see greater bullion availability as the world’s mints and refiners ramp up production to meet the current record demand for physical gold in bullion forms.

We wish each of you a Merry Christmas, a bright Hanukkah, a memorable Winter Solstice - basically, here's hoping all our friends have you have the best mid-winter celebration of whatever form you and yours enjoy.

We’ll be back Monday, January 5th to start things up for 2009.

Thank for your support, and have a Happy New Year!
