Put Yourself on the Gold Standard. Get the World’s only True Gold & Silver Debit Cards.

Precious metals have historically been excellent ways to preserve one’s purchasing power over the long term.* However, in today’s world, they do not act well as a medium of exchange. To solve this problem Peter Schiff and his teams worldwide have worked out a totally new service: the first Gold and Silver Debit cards that gives bank customers access to their gold and silver*holdings.

So says Peter Schiff (www.europac.net) in edited excerpts from his online promotion* for his new offering in an article entitled Peter Schiff Reveals CPI Propaganda By Calculating Real Price Inflation.

Schiff goes on to say in further edited excerpts:

Below are the unique features these*debit cards*offer:

It looks like a traditional debit card, but it has some unique features that help people protect their purchasing power and profit from the real benefits of precious metals:

Purchasing power is stored in gold or silver, protecting holders against price inflation.
Ease of access to the metal: the holder can easily buy and own precious metals
Metals are stored outside the banking system, solving the risk of safe storage.
The holder is protected against capital controls.
The risk for confiscation is minimized as the metals are stored in Australia at the Perth Mint.
Delivery of the metal can easily be requested.
The cards are accepted by millions of merchants worldwide
The cards can be used*in over 210 countries except in the U.S.
Unfortunately this card is not available to American citizens, or foreign citizens residing in the United States.
Euro Pacific Bank’s gold- and silver-backed debit cards give bank customers access to their gold and silver*holdings that has not been offered in any service before. It is an example of innovation in a way that stimulates usage of the metals.

In order to obtain the overseas diversification, I [recommend BullionVault* because, while their 43,000 customers have already done business with them at some of the lowest costs available, they have just reduced their initial commission fee by 37.5% – from 0.8% to just 0.5%! Let me explain further some of the advantages of doing business with Bullionvault.] Words: 796

Gold has been proven time and time again to be an excellent “safe haven” investment, a holding that will appreciate in value during times of economic uncertainty. As such, gold may offer some valuable hedging and diversification benefits for a long-term portfolio.

That is not the case. It is just a paper asset. It is not a way to buy gold and have someone else store your holdings for you.
