Bob is a prepper who has done his preps. The government and economy collapses and he makes it through, glad that he did his preps. A new government and economy is established.
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

Depends, doesn't it?
For example, it'll make no difference if a one world economy and currency is the outcome. The mark on the hand or forehead will be mandatory in order to use the new currency.

Silver coins, known as junk silver.
If you have them and bring any of it out of hiding it will be taken.

Just like anything else, silver coins are only worth what someone will pay you for them.
Just because you bought a silver quarter for $3, does not automatically mean that is what it is "worth".

Id rather invest in casting material and lottsssss of linotype versus precious metals
Silver/gold isnt keeping my crops growing
I cant eat or drink it
I cant shoot it
I cant defend my self with it
I cant use it to charge my electronics
I cant sleep on it
Waste of money IMHO...as I always predict 80-90% of the entire US pop will be dead in a year given mass WROL/SHTF
That means all the old shitlords and probably 95% of kids under 8 will be dead...society will need about 20-30 yrs for a full reboot and we start in the year 1850 at that point anyway
