Putin Silver 1 Kilo Coins Minted In Russia

GoldCore's picture

Gold fell $0.60 or 0.05% yesterday to $1,284.40/oz. Silver fell $0.02 or 0.1% yesterday to $19.43/oz.  

The Mint Refers To The New Coin As "1 KG Of Nobility"

Spot gold bullion prices ticked lower today and gold is again testing support at $1,280/oz. A close below $1,280/oz will be short term bearish.

Momentum is a powerful force and trend following traders and algorithms could push gold lower. Thus, there remains the possibility of further weakness and gold testing its big level of support above $1,180/oz.

Having said that the geopolitical backdrop of increasing tensions over Ukraine between Russia and western powers and indeed between China and Japan is gold supportive. As is the still robust physical demand especially from China and Asia.

Gold in U.S. Dollars - 5 Years - (Thomson Reuters)

The FOMC tends to have a fleeting short term impact on gold prices and barring a major surprise, Yellen's monetary policy is already priced in.

As ever, a better than expected jobs number, could see further gold liquidations. Conversely, a worse than expected number will lead to safe haven demand and could be the catalyst gold needs to get out of its recent funk.

Russia: Putin Silver One Kilo Coins Launched
Silver coins with the face of Russian President Vladimir Putin are being minted in Russia. The coins weigh one kilogram (1kg - 2.2lb) and are being launched by the Art Grani foundry to mark Crimea’s reincorporation into Russia.

The private mint that produces the coins said it is planning to present some of them to the Russian leadership. The coins are commemorative in nature and are a limited edition of 500 silver coins initially. The factory states that some of the coins may be sold, but they won’t be used as currency.

Putin's face is on one side of the coin while the other shows a map of the Crimean Peninsula, Moscow daily Komsomolskaya Pravda reports. Factory director Vladimir Vasyuhin explains that by bringing the Crimean peninsula "back home", Putin had "demonstrated the qualities of a wise strategist and politician".

"Crimea's reunification with Russia was a historic event which we decided to embody in a souvenir collection of coins," Vasyukhin told the Itar-Tass news agency.

The peninsula that has hosted Russia's Black Sea fleet throughout its history was part of Russia for centuries before Ukrainian-born Soviet leader Nikita S. Khrushchev transferred it to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1954.

It made little difference to which republic the peninsula belonged when all 15 were united within the Soviet Union. But after the Soviet breakup in 1991, Russia was forced to lease back its military bases from Ukraine and lost governing authority over the predominantly ethnic Russian population of 2 million.

The first issue of 25 of the commemorative coins, which are the size of a hockey puck and weigh 1 kilo each, will be given to Kremlin officials, Itar-Tass said.

Neither the foundry nor the Russian news sources that wrote about the special "Crimea 2014 Collection" said how much the coins will cost or when a broader quantity will be available to collectors and the general public.

Each coin has 120 millimeters in diameter and is 11 millimeters thick. The embossed images are 4 millimeters high. Each coin will have its own number and will be made of 925 grade silver or 92.5% purity.

Silver at less than $20/oz remains very undervalued. It remains undervalued versus stocks, bonds and indeed gold. An allocation to silver in a portfolio will help protect and grow wealth in the coming years.

After they handed the coin to Jesus, he asked, "whose image is this and whose inscription?"

"Putin's", they replied.


"Give unto Putin, that which is Putin's!" 

And they were amazed and they marvelled at him.

Putin prints endless amounts of fiat to fund his wars too.  How ironic it is to see his image engraved on the barbarous relic.

I can't read it. Does it say pawn or king?

TPTB_r_TBTF's picture

Putin was once a KGB-Pawn who rose and self-annointed to King.


nobility per se has rarely constituted a closed caste; acquisition of sufficient power, wealth, military prowess or royal favour has, occasionally or often, enabled commoners to ascend into the nobility.

That's the size of a Hockey Puck!?  Maybe on Chuck Norris' hockey team. 

Or is it being held by a child?

TPTB_r_TBTF's picture

I have a couple kilo coins from down under.

Chuck Norris' hockey puck is by far bigger!

I'd rather have a silver coin that just says freedom. Celebrating one leftist dictator for another just doesn't do it for me.

HughK's picture

Sessinpo, I agree that Putin is a dictator, and that modern Russia mirrors some of the abuses of state power found in the West as well.

I wouldn't call Putin leftist, though, for these reasons:

-he supports Russian conservative Russian Othodox Christianity

-he's clearly a nationalist, not an internationalist

-he is closely tied to the capitalist/oligarchic elite in Russia

-he has not pushed for many large social welfare programs since he came to power

-while he does support some of the symbolism of Soviet days, such as the tune to the old Soviet national anthem, this is more of an appeal to Russian patriotism, as it recalls the most recent period of history in which Russia was a superpower....although Russia seems to be reclaiming that 

There are plenty of statists on the right as well, ranging from center-right statists, such as Nixon, to far-right authoritarian statists like Franco or Pinochet.

Exactly right.

This is why I always purchased gold and silver in 1~10 ounce wafers/bars.  They contained no images of predators-DBA-government, and no stupid slogans like "in god we trust".

However, I'd be fine with a gold coin that says "in gold we trust", since that would be a tautology, or at least not presumptuous.

All right.

This is a warning bitch slap for the Precious Metal masters.

Even mentioning this big old silver round in the lamestream headlines is potentially dangerous for them.

edit: It even has a map of Crimea on the reverse, which means, "I own this now. neener neener."  This is a commemorative insult.

Why only 25 coins?

I'm sure they would sell like hot cakes.

How many ounces [or kilos!?] of Silver go into a missile?

“To Whom It May Concern”
Worldwide Banks & “Governments” Foreclosed

A two-year investigation by The One People’s Public Trust (OPPT) discovered the massive fraud that
‘banks’ and ‘corporate government’ have systemically perpetuated against the people of the entire world over many decades.

OPPT’s final report concluded that a debt slavery system had been deliberately set up by the heads of the banks and corporate governments, and whether we realized it before or not, this system gradually entrapped almost every human being on earth for the duration of their life.  The report also concluded that the existing system could not be fixed and that a new legal landscape had to be created to free the people of the earth from debt slavery. (Report http://i-uv.com/oppt-absolute/oppt-initial-investigation/)

So, using the same legal process that the banks, corporations and corporate governments have always
used to ‘foreclose’ on unsuspecting individuals, OPPT lodged various commercial filings during 2011,
2012 and 2013, using what is called the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).  The banks and corporate government entities were given plenty of time and opportunity to ‘rebut’ the filings, but to date no rebuttals have ever been registered and so the UCC filings were accepted as Rulings and therefore, came into existence as global law.

The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is the ‘bible’ of ALL commerce and is used worldwide by high-level banking and government corporations to manage and govern their transactions and commercial behavior at an international level. Sadly, ‘UCC’ is not taught in law schools so most lawyers, attorneys and magistrates know nothing about UCC and will argue it has no application.  However, given the usage of UCC filings in the upper levels of “government” and banks worldwide, due diligence and working knowledge of the UCC is a necessity.   UCC Resources:
1)  http://www.law.cornell.edu/ucc/ucc.table.html
2)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Commercial_Code
3)  http://australian-commonwealth.com/ucc.html

After the investigation was completed, the OPPT made two very important conclusions that were set out in the original UCC filings:? 1. that they (the banks and corporate governments) had by deceptive acts and practices been stealing from the people for hundreds of years, and; 2. nothing stood between
the Creator and each of the Creator’s creations.

The banks and governments were given due opportunity to rebut both statements, which they could not and therefore did not:  (See Declarations of facts and allegations of wrong-doing by banks and corporate governments: http://i-uv.com/oppt-absolute/oppt-declaration-orders/ ) As a result, on December 25,
2012, OPPT announced the foreclosure of the world’s banks and corporate governments with their first
Public Announcement  http://i-uv.com/oppt-absolute/oppt-press-releases/  and first Press Release (Feb
4, 2013): http://www.scribd.com/doc/140666918/Press-Release-One-People-s-Public-Tr... Foreclosure-on-Major-Corporations in accordance with global commercial law established through the UCC filings registered by OPPT.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU? All People Declared Free of Debt
The final filing of the OPPT occurred on March 18, 2013. This document terminated all remaining man- made entities and returned all people of this planet to absolute freedom. In this document the creator is referred to as "absolute essence" and all creation’s people are referred to as "absolute essence embodied".  Article VI states..."I duly verify, with full responsibility and liability, by DECLARATION OF ORDER, that eternal essence IS made transparent and known by the DO'ing of any and all embodiment
of eternal essence in eternal essence's universe, IS free and free of debt, unrebutted."

This means THERE IS NO DEBT.? You have no debt... No one has debt... it is done.  This includes your mortgage, credit card and car or student loan. There is simply NO MORE DEBT.
