Where are you?

Or oil traders for that matter?
Societies that do not find work in and of itself "pleasing to God and requisite to Man," tend to be highly corrupt.

Some gold was purchased in about 2001 and 2002 when it was under $300 oz. I suppose I'll hold onto it until it is again under that price and then sell. I'm astute that way.

Having a lifelong interest in coin collecting, most was purchased off of Ebay in the form of pre-World War I gold British sovereigns and half-sovereigns and a few other foreign gold coins having a personal historical interest to me. One could occasionally snag a coin for at, or even a little under melt, but shipping skewered that a bit. Sovereigns were $62-$70 and the little half-sovereigns were $32-$35 for common dates.

Lots of the European nations once issued gold, all similar in size to the British sovereign and containing between 1/5 and 1/4 oz. of gold and these were available for near melt prices, even with early-mid 19th century dates and attractive design features.

Foreign gold is sure to still be there on Ebay, priced just above melt, but I'm not going there at current prices.
