Sounds like they are worried to me, just ever so slightly. Gold is a terrible investment. The price has nothing to do with its real value as the price is dictated daily by 5 old, white, rich guys in some secluded office. There seems to be this "thing" about gold lately though. I really don't get it. You can't eat it, you can't build or make anything useful with it and you can't conduct electricity with it. Apart from the fact it is "worth" lots of money and is rare, what good is it to humanity?
I'd go with copper, aluminium, tin (but not for guns if that is also what it is used for), the regular metals, never gold.

Gold has it's uses but in an end game scenario it's worthless. Honestly I'd rather have a pound of lead than a pound of gold, I can make bullets with the lead.
Big question: Would you rather have a pound of gold or a pound of pasta in a survival scenario? 12 ounces of gold or 12 ounces of water?
The choices are easy and it's funny how those with gold are dumping it on the sheeple.
