Gold Quiz Question 9

What is the total amount of United States currency notes (paper money) in circulation in the world?

C. $1,000,000,000 (one billion)
D. $5,000,000,000,000 (five trillion)

Hint: Warren Buffet could probably make it work.


31 U.S.C. § 5115 (“(a) The Secretary of the Treasury may issue United States currency notes. The notes-(1) are payable to bearer; and
(2) shall be in a form and in denominations of at least one dollar that the Secretary prescribes.
(b) The amount of United States currency notes outstanding and in circulation-
(1) may not be more than $300,000,000; and
(2) may not be held or used for a reserve.”)

When Bill Gates and Warren Buffet were going around convincing other billionaires to give away almost all of their fortune to charity, Warren once quipped that he should write a book about how to live off of a half a billion dollars to teach the billionaires they could survive. But if you think about it, it’s actually pretty hard to spend that much money. You only need so many houses and cars… and islands.

Gold Quiz Question 10

What is the smallest official increment of United States money?

Hint: Gas stations love this game.


31 U.S.C. § 5101 (“United States money is expressed in dollars, dimes or tenths, cents or hundredths, and mills or thousandths. A dime is a tenth of a dollar, a cent is a hundredth of a dollar, and a mill is a thousandth of a dollar.”)

So at the gas pump, when they charge you $5.99,9/10 that was not them being cheap, but being really smart!

Okay, cheap too.

Gold quiz Ben Franklin comments on the thousandth as the smallest unit of money.

i.)         Customer ships the Precious Metals products originally purchased from SHM for inspection because the buy back offer is only for the exact items purchased from us, inclusive of exact condition; and 

ii.)        The cash value of buy back will be at or near Spot Price at the time when we have examined the product to ensure it passes inspection (which is at our or our designated inspector’s sole good faith discretion as to current condition compared to documented condition when originally purchased);

Risk Disclosures

Investing in everything is a risk; values fluctuate, sometimes going up, other times down; no one can predict the future; that is why diversified portfolios are usually recommended. The best anyone can do is make informed decisions and see if correct over time, therefore do research, do your homework. Do not invest more in precious metals than you feel comfortable with after informing yourself. Read your contract; ask your attorney to review it. We strive to do right and help others, if you do not understand something then ask us. There are no guarantees, other than doing our best for you.


Our communication of portfolio is intended as Oxford Dictionary defines “portfolio” as: “a range of products or services offered by an organization, especially when considered as a business asset” and Oxford defines “analysis” as “detailed examination of the elements or structure of something”.
