Canada Day bullion is here and so is #hivepowerupday

“Black birds...the ship’s taking on water! We‘re did it come from?” ~ The Bloody Raven

Wouldn’t you know it.
More than a week ago my Tenant calls me on my cell that there is an emergency and that I need to shut off the house's water immediately. A chain of events including the combination of a plugged toilet and a faulty flush mechanism led to this early morning flooding disaster.

To sum things up, the inspection and assessment deemed this as a class 3 biohazard, that is equivalent to a sewer water contaminated flooding. A Remediation crew had already sprayed yellow some stuff and setup a bunch of fans and dehumidifiers to prevent mold from getting a foothold.

I’ll be out at least a month’s rent plus a deductible. And that’s why I have an Emergency Reserve fund saved up. I still have a third of it in cash with the other two-thirds locked into gold. No sweat I’m set. But if you feel the need to support someone then please support @enginewitty’s family.

The Canada Day Shiny Bullion

Back to business.
What can I say but aside from the natural beautiful and expansive landscapes of the country of Canada? Tall, lush rain forests, majestic mountains, fertile grasslands, fresh water that make Canada primarily a resource-based economy.
Canada is eleventh in world production of Silver by country at 24.8 million ounces but only an eight compared to Number one Mexico in 2018 according to Sprottusa.

Allow me to show you a few of my favorite bullion pieces from my stack.

2015 Canada 8 Dollar Maple Leaves

Reverse; Three Maple Leaves
Text; CANADA 2015, FINE SILVER 1 1/2 OZ ARGENT PUR
Diameter 38mm, Thickness 4.5mm
Silver 0.9999, Weight 46.64g
Engraver; Stan Witten

This chunky coin designed by Stan Witten, is an eye catcher to me. Distinct from the regular Bullion Maple Leaf in a much more natural representation of the regional Western Provinces, Central Provinces, and the Maritime Provinces. All unified to the same tree.

Next, and always impressed by a well-dressed officer in a sharp uniform, even better on a mounted steed and not necessarily a squad car.

Artist; Paul Cedarberg

Another Canadian Icon represented many times before on earlier commemoratives and now for the first time on bullion coins and minted on even a heftier 2 oz. 62g size. Artist Paul Cedarberg’s reboot of his original work on the $1 1973 RCMP Commemorative silver coin.

”Honk, if you want to get arrested eh?” ~Anonymous Canadian 🍁🚚🚛🚚🚛🚚🍁

Also, an interesting match for obverse is the selection of George V for the obverse marking 1920s monarch or alternatively Queen Victoria 1873. If it is not ER II as we have enough of her likeness on too many coins. We Canadian Tax payers support her lavish lifestyle enough to the annual tune of $50 million per year.

Reverse; Center Emblem of a French fleur-de-lis, Irish shamrock, Scottish thistle, and the English rose.
Text; 1864 CANADA 1964, CHARLOTTETOWN, ·QUÉBEC·, DOLLAR
Silver 0.800, Weight 23.3g
Diameter 36mm, Thickness 2.84mm
Designer: Dinko Vodanovic

Canadian politics is boring, so I’ll make it very short.
This 1964 Silver dollar commemorates the beginning of Canadian confederation with it’s first conference of Delegates from three British North American Provinces at Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island on September 1st to the 9th, 1864.

On July 1st, 1867 the federation Dominion of Canada was formed by four provinces; the province of Canada who split to form Ontario and Quebec, the province of New Brunswick, and the province of Nova Scotia.
And the Federal government has been growing into the creature we have today.

The perplexed young computer gamer stuffed his gloved hands in his gortex jacket pockets and shrugged his shoulders, “I just donated $10 to the Truckers Caravan yesterday then today I get a message from CSIS saying… ‘All you bank account are belong to us eh’.” ~ Another anonymous Canadian.🍁🚚🚛🚚🚛🚚🍁

Thank you @punkysdad for loaning me this banknote.

I will be continuing this little Canada Day series through July 1st with the old Constitutional Confederational? Or perhaps, to be more accurate, Demonetized Canadian circulating silver coinage. I’ll be featuring 1949, 1958, 1967 with a few more bullion tossed in.

"No Silver got wet in the writing of this Post."
May have helped considering the anti-bacterial properties of silver.
Otherwise, the insurance company is on the ball and the Contractors are standing by to fix the issues as soon as they are identified and the Tenant has found temporary accommodations.

And I hope so too @urun 👍

I’m still outta my place. All the floors are ripped up. It’s a mess so I’m staying at my sisters. I’ll take another video next time I pop in later….

@dswigle it’s crazy how many people dealing with same problem! Two people I met this week offline had floods also. Strange for summer. Pipe issues all around. Not weather.

They fixed the pipe and filled the holes in my floor last week and they gotta come do the wall damage next. Mines weird cause it’s the condo association paying not my homeowners insurance besides furniture and a few items I’m claiming extra so it’s just a headache. I might sell the place after this if the market isn’t collapsed. Dealing with the association is a headache.

On a lighter note grabbing some Silver 😃
(Gotta go over $1000 since they don’t charge the tax to customers over $1000 so being smart:)

It's the workmanship, Gene, @geneeverett This was caused by the line being too short, but, not short enough to notice. I have five bathrooms and they are all being changed. But, my insurance is top-notch and takes care of business.

Just in case, I always have an account that has a backup plan.

Nothing was contaminated and they ripped up the flooring in the bathroom so there would be no chance of mold. The fans and dehumidifiers for three days were a killer!

Sorry to hear about YOUR flood @kerrislravenhill

My home is 64 years old with old copper piping. There's bound to be a few leaks here and there as time goes on. However, the 17 year old plastic toilet flushing mechanism is to blame.

Didn't I tell you that the Shop Vac make a good Christmas gift?

I saw EW's last post, he is a very strong man and trying his best to get back to normal with her girls. I send prayers to him for quick recovery and wellness.

It is nice to see such beauties here today, they are best fitted to be displayed on 1st of July, wish you a wonderful 1st of July.

Thomas Shingles had also designed a part of the Charlottetown coin the last one.

Have a nice weekend soon.

Thomas Shingles was involved with many coins, including my favorite of the series 1949 Newfoundland "The Matthew" sailing ship. He made the master die by hand.
As much as his remarkable career and talent centering around coin minting his actual hobby was Stamp Collecting.
Go figure. 🤔

The Canadian Mint as well as many mints around the world keep reminding us that silver and gold are real money when they keep making gold and silver coins @mypathtofire.

The primary reason not, is revenue/profit is often made by Seniorage, definition. Besides, coins in precious metals sell better in the collector's market. The RCM makes far more coins than what the North American market can absorb and finds it sells well in the European market. At the same time this counts as exports of Canadian dollars overseas.

And "Happy Independence Day" in return.
That's what an Emergency Reserve fund is for, but Inflation makes it hard to be kept in liquid form.
I can see myself borrowing against my gold holdings for some Fix it up funds in the future, or go with the flow and build a Tipula fish farm in my basement. 🐟

Thanks for dropping in @silvertop

Happy Canada Day! I hope the weather is good in your part of the country. It's been cool and rainy here. Sorry to hear about the flood.

even better on a mounted steed and not necessarily a squad car.

Yeah, it's way harder for them to catch you that way.

I can see why you like that first one! It's awesome! Sorry about the flooding toilet issues; those are never fun. Some years ago, I spent my birthday hanging into our septic tank, so I can relate on a whole different level, lol!

Happy Canada Day, my sis! Have a lovely weekend!🤗😘💜. !LADY
