Silver US coins 90% silver. They who'll be the most trusted and easiest to use. I'd start with a couple rolls of dimes. Then a couple rolls of quarters, halves, and silver dollars.

My opinion is same weights of US coins will out barter bars in spite of being 10% less silver.

Most US coins are now made from copper/nickel alloy. Only pre 1965 coins contain 90% silver.
I doubt anyone posting here does not know that.

We have never had an excess of money. But early on we decided to live frugally and forgo the material comforts in exchange for long range goals.
I'll admit, I wanted toys like dirt bikes and a hotrod Mustang and a big honkin' flatscreen w/surround sound to watch NASCAR, but my wife (God Bless her) demanded we stay focused.
My only vice is firearms. But mine were bought second hand with what I considered "found money" - during the time when the economy was great I recieved quarterly profit sharing bonuses. And my wife had no problem with me claiming them for myself.
And if I want to rationalize I could kid myself into believing my guns were bought to sell for a profit in our old age. :mrgreen:
I have always admired thrifty people. My wife is like that. I have always been the one to make money. She has always been the one to save money.
