A brand-new numismatic coin, issued by the Central Bank of Malta, pays homage to a very old symbol: the Maltese Cross.

The origins of the eight-pointed emblem reach back to the 6th century, when it appeared as an ornamental feature in Byzantine art and architecture. It was adopted in the late 15th century as a symbol of the Order of the Knights of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem (the “Knights Hospitaller”)—a Catholic military order that ministered to the pilgrims to the Holy Land. The order provided shelter, medicine, and eventually armed escort. The eight points of the cross were… Full article at the source>

With My Recommendations – You Can Profit Two Ways

Euro and Gold 6 months

While experts will never agree exactly where the price of gold and silver is going, most do agree that gold at $1200 spot price is a pretty good deal.

Today’s prices are nearly 37% lower than the peak price of over $1900 an ounce back in 2011. Even though gold is substantially lower, there doesn’t seem to be any major change in long term fundamentals. The U.S. debt keeps growing, the politicians keep spending, and the dollar buys less year after year. The fact that the Fed is raising interest rates has helped push the dollar to recent highs.

More counterfeit euro coins discovered in 2012

February 12, 2013 in Coins, Counterfeit, Euro Coins

BRUSSELS | Mon Feb 11, 2013 (http://www.reuters.com)

(Reuters) – The euro’s reputation may have taken a hit during the three-year-long euro crisis but the European single currency remains popular with counterfeiters.

The number of counterfeit euro coins removed from circulation increased by 17 percent to 184,000 in 2012, with a face value of at least 290,000 euros, the European Commission said in a statement on Monday.

About 531,000 banknotes were taken out of circulation last year, according to the European Central Bank, which did not give a face value for the notes.

Around 80 percent of the fraudulent coins by value were 2-euro pieces while 20 and 50-euro notes are most commonly forged.

Last week, the Commission proposed increasing sanctions against counterfeiters by introducing a minimum six-month jail sentence in serious cases.
