Gold and silver coins for the colector

Norwegian politicians do not believe in gold and silver coins as means to spread Norwegian culture and heritage. 

By law, they decided that only one measly silver coin is to be minted each year. The Royal Mint  was established in 1686. However,  instead turning The Royal Mint an ambassador for Norway, the  Mint was put to the sword in 2004 by conservative right wing politician and Finance Minister Per-Kristian Foss (H). So much for traditions in a conservative party.
Foss was at a loss
It is fairly safe to claim that few other countries terminate 318 years old institutions with an enormous potential for work places, technology and art. The Royal Mint in UK, The Royal Canadian Mint and United States the Federal Reserve, to mention a few, are known for their production of both investment coins and facinating collector coins.

Look to Austria
Münze Österreich (Austrian Mint) and is renowned for its Wiener Philharmoniker investment gold and silver coins, but Münze Österreich produces also some exiting collector coins with… you guessed it…. Musical themes. Check out the Austrian mint. If you are a coin collector, you are certain to find something of interest. https://www.muenzeoesterreich.at/eng

Stock Trader Bots Dream of Virtual Gold

You can enjoy half a bottle of amber Single Malt Whisky, but you can’t eat gold in the sewers of a broken ecconomy.
The Finance crisis 2008 was caused by a combination of many social forces. One of the causes was stock trading robots, which buy and sell stocks within split seconds. Even destitute day traders use them and anybody can buy such robots online from businesses pushing these kinds of programs:
“Robot Robotic Stock Trader is a computer trading program. Robot Robotic is a kind of artificial intelligence, which will buy and sell stocks on your behalf. Just lean back and see how Robot Robotic acts as your surrogate brain to monitor chaotic stock market indicators…”.

The Golden Goose
However, stop a moment and let your own brain do some thinking. Why should any firm sell an automatic Stock Trader Bot if it was Truly effective? Why shouldn’t the inventors of this so-called artificial intelligence program use it for themselves to make billions of dollars? Why sell a Golden Goose? These programs might work if you are clever enough to make them execute an efficient trading strategy.
   However, when the shit hits the Wall Street fan the automatic Stock Traders Bots are going to be your economic downfall. They are not made to handle a crisis because nobody knows where and when and how the next crisis is going to hit.

Bots can't scream
When the stock market started to fall in 2008 desperate investors screamed STOP LOSS! and overrode the trading bots. But too late. The price of gold started to rise as investors scrambled to buy gold, silver and other precious metals, and as stocks hit rock bottom gold reached for the sky.
   Nevetheless, investors buying and selling gold are also making use of trading bots, and believing they had found a safe haven they forgot the Killer-Bots disguise as Angles. April 2013 they were once more an important negative cause when gold was temporary driven from heaven.

Silver Fever Cocktail

A thirst for silver is a well-known phenomenon.

Silver Fever
-Let a Canadian Maple Leaf silver coin rest heavy in your hand.
     Slide your thumb over the head of the Queen.
    Oh, the aristocratic face! Oh, the noble traits!
-Drop the coin into a crystal glass Amundsen Artic Vodka to see the silver glitter.
     The spirit must be ice-cold to bring forth the glow in the metal
-Three deep-frozen ice cubes to honor polar explorers that never came 
     home from the realms of the white Artic bear and penguins galore.
- Squeeze half a lime over the silver spoon you were given as a child, 
     remembering time lost dreams and sweet, exotic fragrances of your first love.
- Raise the crystal glass towards a white candlelight 
     and savour the sight of dancing flames around the melting ice.
- Drink slowly… Oh, so slowly … till the silver coin kisses your lips.
