    How about those panic buyers of gold at almost $1700 an ounce a few years ago? How much is it worth today?

    Respectfully, I think a lot of us are missing the point of the question. Seeds, guns, bullets, other preps gets Bob through the crisis. Then normalcy is restored, power is back on, food deliveries are running, people are driving to work, etc. The old government and currency is gone and replaced with something new.

    What is the best time capsule of wealth to survive the crisis so that it can be "dug up" (not literally) on the other side? PM rounds? PM coins? ... something else? Is bob going to sell venison to his neighbor when they can go to the grocery store and buy packaged food again? Is he going to be fighting gangs of zombies when the cops are a call away?

    I believe in that scenario wealth will be irrelevant.... Bob survived on seeds, but after 18 months of the same garden veggies, the neighbor 8 miles away may have a different crop, and a crop of something new may be worth more than gold to him. you could have the cure for cancer and people will still pay you in chickens, eggs, pigs, meat, etc... if you are really asking what a new society will use for currency after the dust settles, who knows?? what is the new currency backed by? are the same people running it that caused the old system to collapse? do you trust them with a new spontaneous currency?

    Have a machine shop and be able to produce something tangible (which government doesn't do) and you will be fine.. people will pay you for things in whatever the coin of the new realm is and you can use it to by crap at the new grocery store... in a total collapse anyone who survives with a strong back and work ethic will be able to get by.... weeds need to be pulled.. if you are a College professor of Gender studies..... you may end up working a shift at a house of ill repute to get by. either way, the new grocery store and police force will need people to work.. as will the supplier to the grocery store, and the phone company for Bob to call the cops..

    If you want the secret sauce/magic bullet to be filthy rich on the flip side, your guess is as good as ours.. diversify your stores of everything (seeds, PM, lead, guns, skills, books tools etc)...... and most difficult of all..... survive it all first...

    Some form of government has been reestablished... bullion. Silver was the coin of trade when Jesus was betrayed by Peter and is still in use today.

    But considering what bullion cost compared to seeds and bullets I'd keep a little of each.
    Talk is cheap, actions count.

    One thing people in todays society fail in is community.. They dont know their neighbors like years ago. We are so wired inside socially that we arent socializing with our neighbors.
    If SHTF, how do you really know your neighbors? Do you go out and drink a beer with them, hunt, fish, camp?
    Remember when neighbor could call your momma and tell your parents wth you were doing.. different times for sure.

    At this point, which does Bob wish he'd invested in to store his wealth?

    1. Precious metal coins
    2. Precious metal bars / rounds
    3. Something else

    Thanks

    Land, silver, food, gold.... can all be taken from you... investing in knowledge of how to live sustainable is important

    of course the reason bob made it through was because he was smart and had food and water...

    nobody every said "MY KINGDOM FOR A PIECE OF SILVER"

    Seeds, brass, lead, gun powder, snagging equipment, knowledge.
    When the superior group rebuilds you can bet on weapons bans.
    Skills of Hunting with bows and arrows as well as other things will be at a premium and perhaps has a bounty on anyone possessing these skills.
