LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BGASC, a leading precious metals dealer, has shipped ten 1/10th oz 2016 American Gold Eagle Coins to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to ease her exit from the United States now that Donald J. Trump has been elected President. The NY Times reported in July that Justice Ginsburg stated when asked about a Trump Presidency, "Now it's time for us to move to New Zealand."
Apparently, Ms. Ginsburg, who famously told an Egyptian television audience that she would not recommend the U.S. Constitution as a model for a new Egyptian Constitution, would rather head to the Antipodes Islands than serve on the U.S. Supreme Court with Donald Trump as President. When the justice will leave is not known. But the coins have been shipped to her so she can prepare her departure.
Martin Thomas at BGASC stated, "We chose to donate the 1/10th oz gold coins as they are easy to transport and a good size should the judge need to transact with them. In addition, gold is up over 180% over the New Zealand dollar over the last 12 years and the judge might appreciate the hedge against the currency. This generous gift will serve as thanks for Ms. Ginsburg's service on the bench and to wish her well in her new life down under."
Recently, Townhall.com published a list of twenty-three celebrities who stated they would leave the United States if Donald Trump became President. Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg was among the twenty-three potential expatriates.
The gift was shipped fully insured through the United States Post Office this week.
