It is always interesting to see how the main-stream media covers stories they know very little about. U.S. News & World Report online magazine picked up an AP wire story and published this about this new 1-oz .9999 fine 24k gold coin: "The coin is worth $100". LOL
Wait till their readers find out this coin will cost approximately $1500 or so based on spot gold price the day they are offered for sale on April 6. But with a very high mintage of 100,000 coins, they don't need to rush to order on day one!
