I hope everyone who's reading this is doing well, considering all that is going on.
Thank You for signing up for the Free Bullion Investment Guide's new monthly newsletter.
As many of you know, this guide donates at least half of its monthly earnings to the Angel of Healing Cancer Fund, once the fund collects more than $100, it donates that money to an individual who's battling cancer.
In May, this guide earned $44.13, of which $22.42 will go to the Angel of Healing Cancer Fund, donations are made when the Fund collects more than $100.00 in any given monthly period.
A breakdown of how of the total will be in June's Ledger/Journal Entry, which will be posted on the guide's ledger, on June 15th, as a note to anyone who's wondering why the donation is made on the 15th of the month and not earlier can go to last month's newsletter 'addendum edition,' seen here.
I've started working on a new blog post about how Gold Nanoparticles are being used to create 2nd Generation COVID-19 testing.
It may surprise you that these tests will be less expensive, more accurate, and the results can be given in less than 20 minutes, sometimes less.
Many of these new COVID-19 tests that use Gold Nanoparticles will not need a swab sample from the back of your nose, some will only need a small amount of saliva or a pin-prick of blood.
Furthermore, the 2nd Generation, Gold Nanoparticle 'antibody tests' are already on the market, and they only need a few drops of blood to get their results, plus, results can be viewed in minutes.
I intend to post the blog sometime next week.
On the bullion side of the guide, at the beginning of every month, I go to my sources to see if the mintage numbers have been updated for bullion coins, other than U.S. Bullion.
Don't get me wrong, 'my sources' are the central banks and mints who make them, I realize, I make it sound as if I'm meeting someone on a street corner saying "You got the numbers, man? How much you want for them?" Its nothing like that, it's just a pain to find them sometimes.
For instance, the Bank of Russia seems to always change where they put their mintage figures, and other sites will often change where they are located, as well.
The U.S. Mint is one of the easiest sources to locate mintage numbers for bullion coins.
As far as Canada and United Kingdom's mintage figures are concerned, Canada hasn't posted mintage figures for bullion since 2014, don't ask me why they stopped because it doesn't make any sense to me to stop posting numbers that draw buyers/investors.
The United Kingdom rarely posts mintage figures, I had to go to 5 or 6 different sources to find the numbers for the Gold Sovereigns, and they used to post Silver Britannia mintage figures, but they stopped that around the same time Canada stopped releasing mintage figures for bullion.
Beside the United States, no one has updated their numbers, I'm waiting to see what the Perth Mint's final numbers are for 2019, the Austrian Philharmonic bullion coin mintage figures for 2019. Furthermore, Russia and Mexico often post same year numbers by this time, but they haven't yet, and I can only blame COVID-19.
The U.S. Mint's mintage figures will be updated over the weekend.
Before I go, I wanted to apologize to anyone who may have tried one of the two links posted on last month's newsletter.
SD Bullion and GoldenEagle Coins were selling the 2012 1oz. Australian Silver Lunar Dragon for around $35.00, which I thought was a pretty good deal.
However, the day after I sent out the email, GoldenEagle Coins halted their affiliate links.
I don't know why they did, I never got a notice, and I honestly doubt it was because of the link in the newsletter, turning away business doesn't make sense to me. Besides, I just started this newsletter, as of now, its reach is not that great, I'm currently reaching out to nearly 50 of you. (Thanks to each of you for signing up)
I don't know why they did it, I sent them an email a few days ago through the affiliate manager (share-a-sale) asking them if, or when are they going to reinstate their affiliate program, as of this newsletter post (5/5/2020), I have not received a reply.
Over the next month, I will be removing their ads and links from the guide unless they reinstate their affiliate program.
As much as I hope that GoldenEagle Coins reinstates and keep its affiliate program and include this guide in it, I cannot have dead links on this guide, and right now, if you click their ads or links, they lead to nowhere, it's a dead link.
Furthermore, until I find out what's going on with them, the affiliate page will continue to show that GoldenEagleCoins is Temporarily Offline.
And for those who may be interested in the 2012 1oz. Australian Silver Lunar Dragon, SD Bullion is still offering it for under $35.00 as seen here in this affiliate link: SD Bullion - 2012 1 oz Year of the Dragon Silver Coin - Lunar Series II
Until next month, thank you for your time, I am Thankful for your support.
Take Care & God Bless,
Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord! Psalm 24:14 (NKJV)
