Berwik: Niente Libertad d'argento in Mexico. Le improbabili scuse che la Casa de Moneda ha raccontato a Salinas Price

Un'altro che raccontava un paio di settimane fa di come sia diventato difficile trovare argento anche in Messico, paese fra i più grossi produttori mondiali del metallo bianco e patria dei bellissimi Libertad (preferisco particolarmente quelli vecchi, più tozzi e massicci) 





Following my own advice here at The Dollar Vigilante, I decided it was time to buy some more silver recently and I went to the normal places I used to go in Acapulco, Mexico, to buy some. You would think with Mexico being the largest producer of silver in the world that it should be plentiful and easy to find.

I went to Azteca bank, which is where I normally buy and they said they had none

Azteca is owned by Grupo Salinas which is effectively owned by Hugo Salinas Price’s family. Hugo, as many might know, is a multi-billionaire and one of the biggest proponents of silver. He has even tried, without luck, to get silver put back into the monetary system in Mexico.

I then went to another bank and they said they had none but I could order some… but they didn’t know how long until it was received. I then sent my driver to every other place that used to sell silver in Acapulco and none was to be found.

Mr. Salinas Price is a good friend and a nearby neighbor in Acapulco, so I sent him an email asking him what was happening. He allowed me to reprint his response (bolded parts are added by myself):


We have a problem with Banco de Mexico. They say that AGAIN, the Mint has sent them stained one-ounce silver Libertads, and they have returned them to the Mint. The Mint will have to melt down the whole lot of thousands, and re-mint the coins. This is what we are told. 
In the meantime, Banco Azteca is selling what coins they have, coming from the public. Banco Azteca is now paying the higher price for the one ounce coins – the price usually paid to Banco de México; since they are absent, the public gets the Banco de Mexico price, for the time being. (when we are in stock, we repurchase from the public at a price slightly lower than Banco de Mexico, our main supplier) 
I don’t know when we shall normalize sales through Banco Azteca. Depends on Banco de México and they are in no hurry to satisfy the public. The delay on the part of Banco de Mexico is probably due to the cause given. However, it does seem extraordinary that the Mexican Mint, which has an excellent reputation for quality over many, many years, can be making such grievous errors – now the second time such a defect is attributed to the Mint.


In pratica il tipo che scrive dice che e' andato in Messico, ad Acapulco, a comprare argento in banca (dove di solito si riforniva). La Banca d'elezione era Banco Azteca che, scopriamo, e' di proprieta' di Hugo Salina Price, da tempo sostenitore della rimonetizzazione dell'argento (ed evidentemente anche uno che lo commercia): Niente da fare, niente argento disponibile. 

Altra banca: non ne abbiamo, può ordinarlo ... anche se non sappiamo quando sara' disponibile. 


Allora il tipo ha scritto a Salinas Price che gli ha raccontato che la Zecca del Messico (Casa de Moneda) gli ha risposto che gli ultimi Libertad che hanno prodotto erano macchiati quindi li hanno ritirati per rifonderli tutti ... mah!

L'autore del pezzo iniziava il suo articolo dicendo che nel giro di pochi anni probabilmente non si troverà ne oro ne argento in vendita (beh, dipende dal prezzo, direi ;) )

Comunque tranquilli: la poderosa analisi tecnica di tal Rambus dice che l'argento e' destinato a tornare a 7 dollari l'oncia ;) 



.. e se lo dice lui, a suon di righette e trangolini ...
