What kind of collapse are we talking about? A total collapse back to basic survival mode for the rest of your life means guns and tins would be
worthwhile and they can be handed on to your kids so they can live in basic survival mode for their life time and so on.
If there is any chance that after paper money collapse there will be people making and selling things, regions trading with each other and someone
operating oil wells, then a store of value will be inevitable. I recommend something that has been successfully tested in that role over thousands of
years, universally recognized, can be used to carry the value of a house in, hint: not silver and certainly not copper!
In recent years new dollars, yen and pounds are being created every day at a much faster rate than copper or gold come into existence. When this
effect reaches us it will be sudden. Thinking copper can go down in relation to unlimited currency printing is foolish. Central Banks buy gold because
is rises the most of any object in a currency collapse, that is gold's unique and specific role in human affairs.
“Water is best. But gold shines like fire blazing in the night, supreme of lordly wealth.”
Pindar quotes (Greek lyric poet of ancient Greece, the master of epinicia, 518-446)
Storing for months of basic survival needs is great for the unexpected event and natural disasters but for your excess reserve wealth as a currency
independent and portable store of value is really only physical gold.
