Monsoon - Better Late Than Never For Indian Gold Demand

Topics [ buy gold bullion online ]


Something that is not getting much coverage is the poor monsoon rainfall in India this year. This matters because poor agrarian Indian farmers are purported to buy over 60% of Indian gold. A contact of mine has provided the following update:

“Finally, some good rainfall in India, but it could be too little too late. Rains need to be above normal/normal from now until the end of July so that crops will come in okay. India has missed early crop growing season, and if July does not come in okay, then crop yields will be very poor this year. If we have a very poor crop season we will see farmers selling gold to finance next year’s crop. If we get good monsoon rains for rest of July, then Indian gold demand should be okay this fall when harvest begins. Some of the rainfall decline to date can be explained by 10+ day delay in onset of the monsoon. Monsoon is only now covering most all the country.”

New 1/2oz Silver Bullion Coin Marks Major World War II Battle

Topics [ buy silver online silver bullion coins buy silver ]


The Battle of the Coral Sea was fought off the north-east coast of Australia during 4 to 8 May 1942 between the Imperial Japanese Navy and allied naval and air forces from the United States and Australia. A highly significant Second World War engagement, it effectively stopped the Japanese advance to the south and has been referred to as the 'battle that saved Australia'.

The Perth Mint is delighted to offer investors a new bullion coin marking this famous encounter. Struck from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver, the 2014-dated release depicts a naval ship with its guns raised on a background comprising representations of the Southern Cross constellation and the Stars and Stripes. The coin’s striking imagery is encircled with the inscription WAR IN THE PACIFIC 1941 – 1941 BATTLE IN THE CORAL SEA.

Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and its monetary denomination (50c).

The 2014 Battle of the Coral Sea 1/2oz Silver Bullion Coin is available in multiples of 25, which come in protective acrylic tubes each sealed with a tamper-evident security strip. Tubes are available individually, or may be purchased in a ‘monster box’ of 20 containing a total of 500 coins.


Competitive Pricing

This superb coin is offered at just $4.95 over spot, reducing to $3.95 for orders of 500 or more coins.

Buy the coin now or call 1300 201 112 / +61 8 9421 7218.

(Please note: The Perth Mint can only supply this coin within Australia. International clients please contact Goldline Coins.)
