History of Gold

Gold has been prized by every major culture and nation state. The appeal of gold has survived the fall of the Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Spanish, and English empires. Gold had been in use for 4,000 before the birth of Jesus. Throughout civilized history, nations have fought wars to acquire gold, and have spent fortunes to protect it. Today, virtually every major nation state continues to have some form of gold coin in circulation, although the legal tender values are largely symbolic. Gold coins have become highly prized collectibles with values that are, in many cases, exponentially higher than the value of the base gold bullion content value.

Gold is the Only Real Money

Gold is indestructible. When gold is heated, it turns to liquid but remains gold. Once cooled, it returns to the familiar solid form everyone recognizes. If gold is dropped into the ocean for hundreds of years, when it returns to the surface it will still be gold. The ability to maintain its integrity without breaking down is why gold became money. People used gold to barter for other commodities like corn, livestock, and others.

Buy Silver Coins and Bars

There are several reasons to buy silver. The precious metal is used as an investment, as a hedge against inflation, and survival purposes in extremely dire situations. Junk silver has long been considered the optimal barter currency when our society breaks down but silver rounds should also be included in a portfolio for bartering. An advantage the rounds have over junk silver is that they have their weight and purity stamped on the actual coins.

Silver has a much lower price than gold and is a more attainable investment and hedge against inflation for most people. There are many industrial and medical applications for silver because it is electronically conducive, thermally, conductive, and reflective. Products like cellphones, cameras, and laptops all contain silver creating a strong demand for silver.
