The biggest gold heist of all time 

Sifnos Greece

This article was spotted on Sovereignman

In 524 BC, a group of pirates set sail for Sifnos, an ancient Greek island famed for its vast gold and silver mines.

The mines of Sifnos were unparalleled in the ancient world.

They produced so much gold and silver that the local government at Sifnos could erect countless monuments, invest in new public works, and still easily have a substantial balance remaining at the end of each year to distribute to the citizens.

Gold and the Italian Vote

Background

Gold prices are getting pummeled on a daily basis and appear to be coming down as fast as they went up.

First we had Brexit which resulted in both the Euro and the British Pound getting sold off hard. When these two currencies lose value the US Dollar is forced to go higher as per The US Dollar Index. As gold has an inverse relationship to the dollar then gold’s value tends to fall in dollar terms.
