Big donation marks numismatic merger

Take that, counterfeits.

A donation of $ 100,000 to the Professional Numismatists Guild will go entirely to the hobby’s effort to fight fakes.

Half of the money came from Wayde Milas, RARCOA Chief Executive Officer in Willowbrook, Ill.

Half came from Standard Numismatics LLC President Brett Charville. His firm is located in Chicago.

The two had agreed to merge their firms, and the donations helped showcase the previously announced deal.

“RARCOA has been in business for over 80 years, and I’m not sure our profession has ever encountered a danger as real as the current threat of counterfeiting. For the profession and the hobby to thrive for another 80 years we must pull out all the stops to combat counterfeiters,” said Milas, who serves as PNG treasurer.

“Over the years I have come to realize just how fortunate I am to be part of the numismatic community, and I want to make sure I’m doing my part to combat the very real dangers that threaten our beloved profession every day by counterfeiters,” said Charville, a member of the PNG board of directors.

The PNG’s Executive Director Robert Brueggeman is grateful. He plans to put the money to good use.

“The PNG is delighted that Wayde and Brett are so generous with a combined donation of $ 100,000 to support the fabulous work of the Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force (ACTF). The PNG looks forward to working with Beth Deisher, ACTF’s Director of Anti-Counterfeiting, to continue and advance the success of the program,” said Brueggeman.

Like the others in this story, Brueggeman wears multiple hats. He also serves on the steering committee of the Anti-Counterfeiting Educational Foundation.

Completion of the merger means staff changes.

Evan Clarke, a staff numismatist with Standard Numismatics, leaves RARCOA on Nov. 21, and Charville will go on Dec. 31.

“We thank them for their assistance during the merger and we wish them both the best in their future endeavors,” said Milas.

He also said former PNG President Jeffrey Bernberg has moved up from RARCOA Vice President to become the firm’s Chief Operating Officer, and RARCOA trader Cole Twitchell now is the firm’s Managing Director of U.S. Gold Trading.

Another Standard Numismatics staff member, Ryan Cook, has become Director of Modern and Retailer Programs at RARCOA.

These changes show that the numismatic field is a dynamic one.

However, some things don’t change.

The $ 100,000 gift to fight fakes is just another example of the generosity coin dealers are known for.

Well done.

Buzz blogger Dave Harper won the Numismatic Literary Guild Award for Best Blog for the third time in 2017. He is editor of the weekly newspaper “Numismatic News.”

MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. (CSE:MYM) (“MYM”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a conditional Agreement to acquire a 49% stake in Sunmark Growth, an Australian company entering the cannabis industry in Henty, New South Wales.

Global Blockchain Mining Provides Update on 2 Tier Mining Spinoff

Global Blockchain Mining (CSE:FORK) provided an update on Wednesday (November 14) on the masternodes for its two-tier blockchain networks.

The company said that the strategy in which the masternodes operate will use servicenodes for features like speedy transactions.

According to the release, Global Blockchain Mining expects to have the servicenodes operational on the Laser, Ammbr and other networks by Q1 2019. The servicenodes have already been launched on the Dash, Horizen, Zcoin, PIVX and Loki blockchain networks.

Masternodes are explained by the company as being different than standard nodes on a blockchain network by operating as a “subset of other nodes that are capable of performing unique functions,” which include near real-time transactions and private transactions, to name a few.  The company said that in order to own a masternode, operators are required to commit collateral that can be confiscated in the event of dishonesty.

“The use of collateral has the dual effect of ensuring honesty through incentive economics and placing a high barrier to entry for node operators,” the release says.

The company said in its quest to run a data center for reasons other than mining bitcoin, it is aiming to provide computation power for artificial intelligence (AI) applications in addition to operating servicenodes.

Shidan Gouran, president and CEO of Global Blockchain Mining, said in the release that the company is working to deliver value by mining bitcoin and expanding its operations to include running masternodes on “promising networks.”

“A defining value of [Global Blockchain Mining], as a business, is investing in infrastructure, as opposed to speculating on assets,” he said. “We have both the capital and the computing resources to position ourselves as an authority in servicenode operations.”

While Global Blockchain Mining expands into the servicenode industry, in terms of its bitcoin mining the company has a opened up a new division that provides blockchain development and operating and consulting services to outside parties. Existing clients include AMMBR with additional ones to be announced sometime in Q4 of this year.

Shares of Global Blockchain Mining remain unchanged from its previous close on Wednesday at C$ 0.02 as of market close on Thursday (November 15).

What Happens in Vegas: Nevada’s Cannabis Tourism Industry

Nevada’s cannabis tourism industry is fuelling the success of one of the “gold standards” for legal cannabis jurisdictions in the United States.

Nevada can thank its thriving tourism industry for its leader status which will largely be driven by the newly legalized adult-use market in the world’s premiere entertainment destination. The legislation has proven to be a huge opportunity for the state’s most famous city, Las Vegas—poised to become the world’s largest adult-use cannabis tourism industry.

While cannabis consumption remains a no-go at the Federal level, that hasn’t stopped the growth of the state-legal cannabis industry. In fact in 2017, according to a recent report by Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, the US cannabis market grew by 31 percent to reach $ 8.5 billion. As more states legislate for medical-use and adult-use cannabis programs, that figure is expected to hit $ 11 billion in 2018 and $ 23.4 billion by 2022, representing nearly three-quarters of the global legal cannabis market. Within that scope, Nevada is set to be a big player in the US legal cannabis market.

This INNspired Article is brought to you by:

1933 Industries Inc. (CSE:TGIF, FWB:1QF, OTC:VPGDF) owns and controls cannabis- and hemp-based assets in Las Vegas Nevada. The company is a licensed cannabis producer building a vertically integrated model to serve multiple facets across the value chain of both the medical and recreational cannabis markets in North America.Send me an Investor Kit

Nevada’s legal cannabis market

Nevada became the fifth US state to legalize adult-use cannabis in July 2017 when it added recreational use to its existing legal model for the cultivation and sale of medical cannabis. While the state’s card-holding medical cannabis consumers—the number of which has been dropping steadily since recreational legalization—need only be 18 to purchase products, recreational consumers must be at least 21. The new recreational laws allow adults over 21 to purchase and possess up to one ounce of cannabis dried flower or 3.5 grams of concentrates or hash for personal use.

Nevada is home to 64 state-licensed dispensaries, as of August 2018, 61 of which are licensed for recreational sales. The number of retail stores allowed in each Nevada county will be population based, with initial estimates projecting around a total of 130 licensed dispensaries statewide in the future. Proceeds from the 15 percent cultivation tax on all cannabis products in the state goes toward schools, and a 10 percent tax collected from recreational cannabis sales goes toward the Nevada Rainy Day fund. In its first fiscal year, the Nevada Department of Taxation reported a remarkable $ 69.8 million in cannabis tax revenue, which is 140 percent higher than anticipated. Recreational cannabis sales accounted for 80 percent of total sales, raking in $ 424.9 million for the first year.

“Even though Nevada was an early adopter in creating its state-legal cannabis industry, it has one of the most robust regulatory regimes. The laws are clear, the Department of Taxation enforces them, and licensees who are out of compliance are shut down,” Brayden R. Sutton, President and CEO of vertically integrated Nevada-licensed cannabis producer 1933 Industries Inc. (CSE:TGIF,OTCQB:TGIFF), told the Investing News Network. “In comparison, California’s non-compliant operations are still thriving. From the beginning, Nevada issued a limited number of licenses based on its supply and demand projections. Currently, no new cultivation and production licenses are being issued. This offers protection to current cultivation and production licensees by avoiding excessive competition.”

Keeping the number of licensed producers in check has also kept Nevada’s supply levels in check, leading to a more sustainable market. The state does not have an oversupply problem such as Oregon is experiencing. This has in turn kept the price of cannabis flower and other cannabis products fairly stable, allowing for more accurate projections of gross revenue and net profits for the Nevada’s cannabis companies. Unlike Washington and Colorado, Nevada allows non-residents to invest in and have ownership in cannabis businesses, which allows for increased investment into the industry.

Success in implementing legalization

In April 2018, the US’ largest cannabis company, Los Angeles-based MedMen (CSE:MMEN) announced the completion of “the most high-tech marijuana factory in the world”, a 45,000-square-foot facility east of Reno, Nevada. “There’s no better place that we could’ve built this factory than right here,” said Adam Bierman, MedMen co-founder and CEO, praising Nevada’s cannabis industry as “the premier marijuana program in the US right now.”

According to New Frontier data, cannabis consumers in Nevada spend an average of $ 68 per transaction at least once per week. The research firm also notes that annual sales of cannabis at Nevada’s state-licensed dispensaries are projected to grow at a CAGR of 22 percent to reach an estimated $ 772.3 million by 2022.

“People think of Colorado as the gold mine so to speak. We are way beyond what Colorado did the first year,” said State Senator Tick Segerblom (D), who was instrumental in developing the state’s medical cannabis framework in 2013 as well as legalizing recreational marijuana sales.

Segerblom credits Nevada’s ability to implement recreational legalization quickly compared to other states on the fact that Nevada’s medical cannabis program was modeled on Colorado’s recreational program, “[W]hen the voters approved Question 2 we only had to flip a switch to convert medical to recreational. We also have a very dedicated industry and a talented group of civil servants who labored hard to create a rigorous but workable system that got off the ground quickly. There are a lot of rules, but the rules have helped ensure we have a good system and a working market.”

Nevada’s well-established and world famous tourist industry offers the state’s emerging cannabis industry another advantage over its peers—one that industry leaders and analysts say doesn’t yet factor into the nearly half million dollars in cannabis sales realized in the market’s first fiscal year.

Nevada’s cannabis tourism industry key to market growth

Nevada is home to two prime tourist destinations, Reno and the world’s premiere party city, Las Vegas, making the state an obvious match for the recreational cannabis market. “Unlike all other states, Nevada is unique in that it has a high-spending tourist consumer market who come to Las Vegas to seek relaxation and entertainment; the ideal target customer. With more than 50 million tourists traveling to Las Vegas each year, there is enormous potential for Nevada to become the world’s top canna-tourism destination,” said Sutton, whose company owns Alternative Medicine Association, one of the state’s first licensed cannabis producers and now a licensed seller of well-established cannabis brands. Construction is underway on an additional 67,750-square-foot cultivation facility in Las Vegas.

“The City of Las Vegas is looking to implement consumption lounges in the next few months, which would be an even bigger attraction for tourists to consume cannabis products while staying here,” he added.

Cannabis lounges to provide legal consumption venue

Nevada’s casinos and associated hotels are federally regulated, making them off limits for cannabis consumption. However, the Las Vegas City Council and other local governments are considering licensing cannabis consumption lounges. The move could provide the room for significant growth in Nevada’s already impressive recreational cannabis sales by attracting additional tourists and providing them with an entertaining venue for legal consumption in the heart of Sin City.

“[T]he fact is when you talk to people we really haven’t attacked the tourist market, it’s really more locals so if we can get that 50 million people that are coming here every year than watch out,” said Senator Segerblom, who believes that Nevada will have its first cannabis lounges in 2019. “We’ll also have cannabis health spas where you can do yoga and pilates and have massages, and hopefully not long after that have cannabis events and festivals. Las Vegas is working on legislation for that now. I’m seeking election to the county commission and want to make this a priority at the county level as well. This is one of the next big steps for the industry.”

Takeaway

Nevada’s largest city and one of the world’s top tourism destination, Las Vegas is on its way to becoming the mecca of North America’s cannabis tourism industry. What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Investors in Nevada’s cannabis tourism industry and cannabis companies have plenty of opportunities to take home profit.

Katanga Bang: DRC Miner Hit With Copper Export Halt

Glencore’s (LSE:GLEN) Katanga Mining (TSX:KAT) has revealed that it’s being prevented from importing and exporting any goods associated with its African copper-cobalt operations due to alleged failure to pay duties on copper exports in late 2014 and early 2015.

In its Q3 2018 financial report, Katanga said that the Direction Générale des Douanes et Accises (DGDA) — the customs authority in the Democratic Republic of the Congo — had been preventing Katanga’s subsidiary, the Kamoto Copper Company (KCC), from moving goods since November 9.

Shares in Katanga Mining were already doing poorly as markets absorbed news it was being prevented from exporting cobalt due to high levels of uranium in the ore.

On Thursday morning (November 15), Katanga was down a further 8.7 percent on the Toronto stock exchange, trading at C$ 0.39, compounding previous losses on November 6, the day that cobalt exports were halted.

In its Q3 report, Katanga said that the DGDA halt on exports and imports was “temporary” and based on the company’s “alleged failure to declare and pay duties on the export of at least 6,650 tons of copper in December 2014 and January 2015.”

The company explained that the dispute centered around an overstatement of copper production over that period, and that the excess copper was not produced, nor was it ever exported, so the US$ 43 million in taxes claimed by the DGDA did not apply.

Katanga said that it had corrected the overstatement in its filings for the years ended December 31 2016 and 2015, but the DGDA was still pursuing the charges and was proposing to levy export duties and significant penalties on the company to secure it.

The significant penalties were not elaborated on, but Katanga said that if the ban on imports and exports was not resolved, the company’s production and revenue would be negatively impacted.

Katanga said it was engaged with the DGDA to resolve the issue, and in the meantime copper production was continuing unaffected at the KCC.

The company’s financial report did have good news though, reporting an increase in copper and cobalt revenue in the quarter and year-to-date.

Copper revenue was up to US$ 246.3 million (up 20 percent from Q2) while cobalt revenue increased 28 percent to US$ 181.83 million.

Ken Brinsden: There’s Still an Incredible Dynamic of Growth in the Lithium-ion Supply Chain

At this year’s Cathodes event in Newport Beach, the Investing News Network caught up with Ken Brinsden, managing director and CEO of Pilbara Minerals (ASX:PLS), and Dale Henderson, Pilbara’s COO.

Brinsden talked about the main trends he has seen in the lithium sector this year and how they have impacted the space.

“[This year] everyone has been focused on the relative position of the Chinese domestic market as compared to what’s been happening in the rest of the globe,” Brinsden said, adding that declining lithium carbonate prices in China were a main concern for investors.

“[That] dynamic has really not influence the behavior of our customers and there’s still an incredible dynamic of growth in the lithium-ion supply chain,” he added.

Brinsden also shared his thoughts on what he thinks is ahead for prices.

“I think we’ve probably seen the lows in terms of Chinese domestic prices, and I’d like to think that the next move in the Chinese domestic market is actually up,” he said.

Speaking about the disconnect between share prices and the optimistic demand outlook seen this year, Brinsden said prices had perhaps run too hard at the end of 2017.

“I think the persistent theme is there’s still a healthy dynamic in terms of growth in the lithium-ion supply chain, there’s a significant requirement for growth in the raw materials supply base and that’s the opportunity Pilbara Minerals sees,” he added.

Brinsden also gave his best suggestion for investors new to the sector and explained what is the most important thing market watchers need to understand about the space.

For his part, Henderson talked about Pilbara Minerals’ milestones this year.

“The biggest news for us this year was a very successful build, a great ramp-up and now stepping into production,” said Henderson, who also shared what’s ahead for the ASX-listed company.

Thom Calandra: Why Diversification in Commodities is a Great Thing

As we approach the end of 2018, will the resource sector be able to make a comeback before the new year is upon us? And if so, which metals are more likely to succeed? Thom Calandra of the Calandra Report breaks down where resources have been and where they could be going.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the recent New Orleans Investment Conference, he called out copper as a “disappointment” this year but has faith in the precious metals, revealing that once the substantial rebounds start, they will make leaps and bounds in the market.

“I will say, that when we see rebounds in some of the precious metals, as we are starting to see; gold, silver, platinum, palladium — they are vicious upside rebounds,” he stated.

Calandra added that the climb of the precious metals is to be expected because they have been largely abandoned by investors during 2018.

In terms of what precious metals are his favourite right now, he sees the most value in gold and platinum.

“If I were to put myself in a box it would be gold and then platinum. Then after that, I have a light mix of battery metals, and, in fact, I even like tin,” he noted.

Calandra also touches on trends in the mining space, including consolidation in the industry, the potential rise of polymetallic companies and why he is pro-uranium right now.

Palladium Continues to Rally — Will it Rival Gold?

Palladium climbed almost 3 percent during Thurday’s (November 15) session, placing the precious metal in a position where it could soon rival gold prices.

The metal sealed its third consecutive day of increases to land on its highest settlement on record thanks to growing demand paired with tighter supplies.

“A combination of supply concerns and buoyant demand have driven price developments in recent weeks,” stated analysts at FocusEconomics.

“Geopolitical tension between the US and Russia led some observers to fear that Russia, by far the largest global producers of palladium, could restrict supply. This would aggravate an already tight market, in which a substantial supply deficit is forecast for this year and next,” they added.

Demand for palladium has also increased in 2018 as China’s need for the metal has become larger and more apparent. As the Asian country seeks to boost its economy through stoking car sales, demand for the precious metal has begun to increase as it is used in catalytic convertors by automakers.

“China’s needs for palladium is starting to show up,” R. Michael Jones, chief executive officer of Platinum Group Metals
told MarketWatch.

“We have been predicting this for some time. Look out gold,” he added.

Palladium demand is also on the upswing thanks to a shift from diesel to gasoline and hybrid vehicles, which generally use more of the commodity.

Moving forward, market watchers believe that this week’s spike in palladium prices is only the beginning of a trend that will continue into next year.

“Demand for palladium outstripped supply over the past eight years. And 2019 is setting up to be another year of shortages,” stated Anthony Planas of Banyan Hill.

Adding, “[p]alladium’s high price is attracting the attention of precious metal speculators. It is also setting up for a recovery in platinum.”

Due to the increase in demand, paired with a marginal concern over supply, palladium prices have gotten closer to that of gold, with the yellow metal trading only approximately US$ 70.00 an ounce more.

Earlier in the year, gold was trading closer to US$ 500.00 more than palladium.

As of 3:07 p.m. EST,  palladium was up 2.70 percent, exchanging hands for US$ 1,142.00 per ounce.
