Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Legislation that has been proposed in Congress to prevent the minting of U.S. coins whose manufacturing cost exceeds their denomination would stop the U.S. Mint’s issuance of gold and silver coins, Mike Zielinski notes in commentary at Coin Update. This is probably an oversight on the part of the legislation’s drafters, but imagine if the bill was amended not to exempt gold and silver coins but to require imprinting an honest denomination on them. Zielinski’s commentary is posted at Coin Update here:
