I'm not much for gold. One ounce is worth thirteen hundred bucks, a farmer has two dozen eggs and a bushel of potatoes to sell, and of course, they have guns in case you decide to rob them. So that chunk of metal isn't worth more than those potatoes and eggs, it will cost you all of it if your hungry, he does not have change.
I would rather have silver or copper to trade, even old nickles and dimes or pre-eighty four pennies.
Gold has always been a scam. It was used by deceivers a lot throughout history. I would rather have guns or bullets to trade than gold. Also, stocking a little fertilizer would be a good investment, farmers need that for their fields.
