Gold and Silver
A guide to follow when considering the purchase of gold or silver as a hedge against economic catastrophe. Money can become worthless during times of hyperinflation.
People should always keep gold and/or silver in a secure place, ready to help in times of need. Consider if terrorists suddenly and completely took over our government.
Although such a scenario is unlikely, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. If our currency were suddenly declared worthless, what could buy milk at the downtown store? What would storekeepers trade? Consider how many countries experienced a coup in their government in the past ten years.
How many people used a gold coin or necklace to buy something to eat when their home country’s currency became unstable? Even if your country is considered stable, the unthinkable government coup or economic collapse could happen.
