"A Troy Ounce is more than an ounce"
How can a Troy Ounce be more than an ounce ?
Precious metals such as gold and silver are often sold by the troy ounce weight. Many people don’t realize that an ounce of gold is more than the typical ounce found at the grocery store. In many English speaking countries there are two systems for measuring weight.
One, for precious metals, called the troy ounce (oz) used for weighing precious metals and gems.
The other is for Commodities such as sugar, grains, and the typical grocery items. It is called the avoirdupois ounce (av). Here in the USA we often use the avoirdupois ounce. Every time you step on the scale at home, or
weigh food found in the grocery, you use the avoirdupois ounce weight system. There are 16 avoirdupois ounces in
Avoirdupois weights - An "Avoirdupois" (AV) 16 oz pound is equal to about 453.6 grams (g), or 14.5833 "Troy" (T) ounces (oz). 1 avoirdupois ounce (av) = 437.5 grains, or 28.35 grams. 1 avoirdupois pound equals 16 (avoirdupois) ounces or 453.59 grams.
So what do you get when you buy an ounce ?
The troy ounce is heavier than the typical grocery store (avoirdupois) ounce used in the USA. When you
purchase a 1 ounce silver or gold coin, you are receiving a "troy" ounce. If you put that same 1 troy oz. coin on a grocery store scale you will find that it weighs about 10% more than the food ounce you are familiar with. It will weigh about 1.1 avoirdupois ounces. Consequently, a grocery store pound which weighs 16 avoirdupois ounces (or 453.59237 grams) will contain about 14.58 troy ounces.
Separately, the troy weight system has it's own definition of a "troy" pound. A "troy pound" contains 12 troy ounces or 373.24152 grams (which is 13.1657136 (avoirdupois ounces) and is equivalent to 373.24 grams and 32.15 troy ounces = 1 kilogram.
It is thought that the troy ounce was named after a weight system used in Troyes France during the Middle Ages.
Troy weights - One troy ounce (oz) = 20 pennyweights (dwt), or 480 grains (gr), or 31.10346 grams (g), or 1.0971428oz avoirdupois (av)

WHY BUY BASE METALS ??
The information provided below is opinion and research done by Charles at C & C BULLIONCOINS.
Please do your due diligence before investing and enjoying the beauty of pure BASE METALS.
1. If you are thinking about investing in physical bullion, you don't have to be limited to only buying the four PRECIOUS METALS, there is a whole new world out there for buyers of non-precious metals bullion. BASE METALS are significantly cheaper than SILVER or GOLD on a per ounce basis and they tend to also hold their value over time and are solid commodity metal investments (the world populations need and use all of these BASE METALS in industries). If you hold a piece of metal in one hand and a paper note in the other, I ask which feels
like it has real value and more importantly will retain its value over time.
2. The U.S. FIAT Dollar is facing HEAVY Inflation. Interest rates are low which leaves few options in investing in CD's, Money Markets, etc. for any decent return on investments from paper-backed assets. Real Estate is soft and you still will never own it if you don't pay the annual property taxes or pay insurance premiums for risk of any lawsuits that might occur on your property.
3. Each day the Dollar is worth less and less with the printing presses running rampant and if you don't protect
your hard earned savings, you will have less wealth and purchasing power over time. The Dollar is simply a Government backed confidence game.
4. BASE METALS are another way to hedge against the massive inflation ~ hyper-inflation coming. They are excellent eye appealing alternative METALS to the higher per unit cost of PRECIOUS METALS.
5. We are witnessing the breakdown of the EURO, and other WORLD paper currencies will do the same in time. History has proven Paper backed by nothing but a promise is WORTHLESS. Today NO government worldwide backs their FIAT currencies with any HARD ASSTES.
6. BASE METALS' higher cost to Spot Prices comes from the costs in mining and processing the rarity of
investment grade ores and refining them into beautiful pure metal Bullion Rounds and Bars.

WE SELL beautiful 1 ozt .999 fine ALUMINUM Buffalo Bars (out of stock)
WHY BUY ALUMINUM BARS?
1. ALUMINUM: It's name originates from the Latin word "alumen".
2. Found in pure form ALUMINUM is rare, instead it is found in over 270 different minerals. It was discovered in 1825 and it never occurs naturally in its pure state and is usually found in the form of oxide known as bauxite.
3. ALUMINUM is the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust and 3rd most abundant element, but one of the most difficult to get. The isolation of ALUMINUM requires vast electric current. It makes up 8.2% of the Earth's crust. It won't rust and is 100% recyclable.
4. ALUMINUM is an important silvery-white metal that's soft, durable, lightweight, ductile and malleable that resists corrosion. Strong, but when melted, can be molded and shaped into many items relatively easy. It is the
most widely used non-ferrous (no iron) low density metal. It is non magnetic and makes great nontoxic alloys.
5. ALUMINUM has many uses in transportation, aerospace, packaging, construction, household items, and street poles. It can be woven into wire and is a good conductor of heat and electricity.
6. In the 1850's, ALUMINUM had a higher value than GOLD (1852 ALUMINUM price $1200 per kg, GOLD was $664 per kg). In 1884, the total United States ALUMINUM production was only 125 pounds. That year the
Capstone was placed atop the Washington Monument and was a 100 oz cast pure ALUMINUM pyramid (that was 20% of the total year's production).
7. It is said that Napoleon III of France served his most important guests with ALUMINUM plates while the lesser guests had to settle for GOLD plates.

2. BRONZE is one of the earliest metals known to man dating back to 3500 BC and is used in a variety of applications including
weapons, tools and coinage (COPPER 95%, TIN 4% and ZINC 1%). The BRONZE Age was named after the technological achievements brought about by this metal.
3. BRONZE is a metal composed of a mixture of COPPER and TIN. The color of BRONZE ranges from a dark reddish, brownish hue, to a yellowish color hue depending on how much TIN alloy is added.
4. BRONZE is suitable for boat and ship fittings and is commonly used in making ship propellers and submerged bearings
because of its resistance to saltwater corrosion.
5. It is the metal of choice for top quality Bells (Bell metal contains about COPPER 77% and TIN 23%). BRONZE
is harder than
pure COPPER and more readily melted, making it easier to cast and it's harder than pure IRON and more weather resistant
6. NICKEL BRONZE consist of COPPER 70% and NICKEL 30% and is used in sculptures and statues.
7. Athletic events give a BRONZE metal for third place finishes behind SILVER and GOLD.

WHY BUY BRASS BARS?
1. BRASS is not an element, but is a metal alloy composed of a mixture of COPPER and ZINC. The color of BRASS ranges from a dark reddish brown hue to a light silvery yellow hue (the more ZINC added the lighter the color). Varies between COPPER 55% to 95% and ZINC between 5% and 40%.
2. BRASS is stronger than COPPER, easy to form into various shapes, it's a good conductor of heat and generally resistant to corrosion from salt water.
3. BRASS has a higher malleability than BRONZE (COPPER / TIN) or ZINC only. BRASS is a substitutional alloy.
It is used for many items because of its bright GOLD-like appearance. It is used for door knobs & locks, bearings, valves, zippers, musical instruments, plumbing & electrical lighting fixtures, fireplace equipment, candleholders,
etc. Cartridge BRASS contains 30% ZINC for making Ammunition cartridges.
4. COPPER in BRASS makes it germicidal, killing microorganisms within hours of contact.
5. The first metal BRASS cartridge casings for firearms were introduced in 1852. It has low friction and does not spark when struck.
Forms of BRASS have been used for centuries by mankind and BRASS is mentioned in the King James Bible.

United States Jefferson NICKEL Coin (.05 cent) FACTS:
Dates: 1938 to date (except the War Nickels dated 1942 - 1945) which are 35% Silver. There are 11 nickels in the set, all with the large mint mark above the capitol dome on the reverse. Note, the Buffalo Nickel dated 1913 to 1938, the Liberty "V" Nickel, and the Shield Nickel ALL had the same composition as the Jefferson Nickel in their original uncirculated state.
Total NICKEL weight in Uncirculated condition is 5.0 grams of which (75%) 3.75 g is pure COPPER and (25%) 1.25 g is pure NICKEL
For PURE COPPER in Avoirdupois weight (AV) convert 453.59237 / 3.75 = 120.9580 or a little more than $6.00 (121) face value in Nickels to equal 1 AV lb pure COPPER or 120.9580 / 16 = 7.559875 or a little more than .35 (7.5) face value in Nickels to equal 1 oz AV pure Copper.
For PURE NICKEL in Avoirdupois weight (AV) convert 453.59237 / 1.25 = 362.873896 or a little more than $18.00 (363) face value in Nickels to equal 1 AV lb pure Nickel or 362.873896 / 16 = 22.6796185 or a little more than $1.10 (22.7) face value in Nickels to equal 1 oz AV pure Nickel.
For PURE COPPER in Troy weight (T) convert 373.2417216 g / 3.75 = 99.53112576 or a little more than $4.95 (99.5) face value in Nickels to equal 1 Troy lb pure COPPER or 99.53112576 / 12 = 8.29426 or a little more than .40 (8.3) face value in Nickels to equal 1 Troy oz pure Nickel.
For PURE NICKEL in Troy weight (T) convert 373.2417216 g / 1.25 = 298.59337728 or a little more than $14.90 (298.59) face value in Nickels to equal 1 Troy lb pure Nickel or 298.59337728 / 12 = 24.882781 or a little more than $1.20 (24.88) face value in Nickels to equal 1 Troy oz pure Nickel
WE SELL beautiful 1 ozt .999 fine STAINLESS STEEL Buffalo Bars (out of stock)
WHY BUY STAINLESS STEEL BARS?
1. STAINLESS STEEL is not an element but is an alloyed mixture of other metals.
2. STAINLESS STEEL is 100% recyclable and it's resistance to rust, corrosion, and low maintenance making it an ideal material for many applications.
3. There are over 150 grades of STAINLESS STEEL of which fifteen are the most commonly used.
4. The three main types of STAINLESS STEEL are Austenitic (alloys containing chromium, NICKEL and sometimes manganese and nitrogen) Ferritic STEELS contain IRON and Chromium and is less ductile than Austenitic STEEL and is not hardenable by heat treatment. Martensitic STEEL is a low carbon steel built around a composition of Iron 12% Chromium and 0.12% Carbon. This Steel has great hardness but reduces its toughness making it brittle, so few Steels are fully hardened for this reason.
5. STAINLESS STEEL is a poor conductor of electricity.

WE SELL beautiful 1 oz Bars (out of stock) and 5 oz .999 fine TITANIUM Cubes (out of stock)
WHY BUY TITANIUM?
1. TITANIUM is one of the hardest metals on Earth and is always found as a compound with other elements and is very time consuming and expensive to extract into a pure .999 fine metal bar. It has a low density and is a strong, lustrous dark grey/silver color and corrosion-resistant to sea water.
2. Useful properties of the metal form are corrosion resistance and the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. When unalloyed TITANIUM can be as strong as some Steels but 45% lighter. It is lighter than plastic.
3. TITANIUM can be alloyed with other elements such as: IRON, vanadium, molybdenum to produce strong lightweight alloys for jet engines, missiles and spacecraft. It is used in desalination plants and autos.
4. The medical field uses TITANIUM in protheses, orthopedic implants, dental implants, because the human body doesn't reject it like other metals.
5. Compared to the other metals, TITANIUM has superior strength and is light weight making its use widespread
in the manufacturing of firearms (used mainly in pistol frames and revolver cylinders).
6. Recent world events have created a shortage of TITANIUM stockpiles and many experts see the price exploding in the future. Russia owns 50% of the world's stockpile and has no inclination of sharing. The United States strategic military stockpiles have been depleted and must buy on the open world markets.
7. Many of the Earth's crust TITANIUM deposits that are easy to mine have played out and the price of TITANIUM has been increasing due to higher cost of finding and extracting new ore.
Atomic Element # 50 Atomic Mass: 118.71 Melting Point:s 449.47 °F 231.93 °C Boiling Point: 2,602 °C Troy ounce weight in a cubic Inch 3.8393 oz t
WE SELL beautiful 1 ozt .999 fine TIN Buffalo Bars (out of stock)
WHY BUY TIN BARS?
1. TIN is one of the earliest known and used metals and is mentioned in the Bible.
2. TIN is a relatively scarce element (25 times more rare than COPPER) with an abundance in the Earth's crust of about 2 parts per million (ppm), compared with 94 ppm for ZINC, 63 ppm for COPPER, and 12 ppm for LEAD. China is the leading producer in the world. Note many of the main TIN mines have been depleted causing increase speculation worldwide in this commodity.
3. TIN is an essential non toxic metal that is very useful as a protective coating and alloys easily with other metals
to prevent corrosion (it does not easily oxidize in air). It is used in making cans and containers, electrical equipment, construction and most solders ingredient.
4. The future use for TIN is expected to grow as new applications are developed. Because TIN has no known detrimental effects, it is expected to replace other more environmentally harmful metals such as LEAD, MERCURY, and CADMIUM.
5. Final reason, TIN shot is being used to replace LEAD shot in making shotgun shells.
TIN from Latin word Stannum
Major TIN mining countries in 2011 in metric tonnes were:
1. China 115,000
2. Indonesia 60,000
3. Peru 38,000
4. Bolivia 16,000

WE SELL beautiful 1 ozt .999 fine ZINC Buffalo Bars (out of stock)
WHY BUY ZINC BARS?
1. About three-fourths of ZINC is consumed mainly as a coating to protect Iron and Steel from corrosion. China is the largest producer and consumer in the world.
2. ZINC is an essential mineral required by the human body and deficiencies can cause multiple diseases. It is the second most common trace metal in the human body.
3. ZINC could be the new "Metal" money since it has been out of favor for a long time. New bull markets are born in this manner. ZINC consumption is on pace to rise 5.5% this year with supply only rising 2.2%. Several major key ZINC mines in China, Australia and Canada are scheduled to shut down in the near future. The ZINC price may have some major catching up compared to the other Metals.
4. ZINC alloys are used in coins of many countries. The United States post 1982 Cent consists of 97.5% ZINC a 2.5% COPPER coating.
5. ZINC and COPPER have been alloyed in making BRASS since the 10th century BC.
Major ZINC producing countries in 2010 (production in Thousand Metric Tonnes) according to https://www.mapsofworld.com/minerals/world-zinc-producers.html are:
1. China - 3,500
2. Peru - 1,520
3. Australia - 1,450
4. India - 750
5. United States - 720
6. Canada - 670
7. Mexico - 550
8. Kazaichstan - 480
9. Bolivia - 430
10. Ireland - 350
11. Other Countries - 1,580
In conclusion, none of the PRECIOUS and BASE METALS can be grown on trees or plants, milled and printed with stamped values arbitrarily placed on them by man. They must be found, then extracted out of the Earth through high RISK, hard work, with costly expenses, then the unique metal(s) must be processed through various stages to arrive at the desired purity before being used in building and making products used by man. Some
BASE METALS are critical metals with few known substitutes. Bartering with different commodity metal (money) is as old as mankind and predates any countries Fiat Paper (money).
Please, take time to research and determine for yourself if BASE METALS have a place in your Asset portfolio along with some PRECIOUS METALS to become a modern BULLIONAIRE Investor. Thank You, Charles
