As the American banks continue to implode, the value of gold coins is becoming more and more apparent by the day.

November 17, 2011 – As the debt crisis rears another Hydra head in Europe, rumblings sound in the Chinese economy, and American banks continue to implode, the value of gold coins is becoming more and more apparent by the day. The difficulties occurring abroad make it extremely difficult for anyone to honestly foretell the activity of the markets because the problems are occurring on a nearly theoretical level. What we can distill is that grave uncertainty is fueling an already faltering American market and the fallout is hitting savers.

MF Global, the recently failed big bank associated with Jon Corzine, is a grand example of how the American economy interlocks with the global economy. Through a Commodity Futures Trading Commission ruling, the bank was able to use customer funds to invest in European sovereign debt. Last Monday, unknowing customers received a phone call informing them their money was inaccessible and is currently held with a “trustee.”

Today, Reuters is reporting that a court will consider releasing $520 million of customer cash. “Consider” should be clearly emphasized. It is unknown the court decision will not take into account the nearly $600 million of customer funds are currently “unaccounted for.”

The sad truth is this is the new reality of American investing. Savers who work hard and keep their money in banks or invest through futures contracts are being fleeced and getting a phone call. With low interest rates that look to be staying with us for the foreseeable future and negative real interest rates, there is absolutely no incentive to keep money in savings. If you invest your money in futures markets, you risk losing it to the bank you’re investing with and the banks have the legal right to do this.

The value of gold coin shines in these examples because of its fundamental resistance to manipulation, exploitation, and outright fraud. Owning gold coin in this market is like having your cake and eating it, too. You get the store and value of your wealth, the accumulation of wealth that comes from investment, and the satisfaction of knowing your wealth is safe with a good company far from the reaches of a bank or in your own possession.

Forget Europe, forget China, and let yourself forget big banks with Washington connections robbing honest Americans. Purchase gold coins and free yourself.
