-Andrew advocates physical possession of coins, but what should those of us do who live in small apartments or are in questionable neighborhoods? Andrew talks safe storage of coins in the home; Mickey, a listener, writes in suggesting a book called “How to Hide Anything”, which can be downloaded
-Andy recommends $20 St. Gauden gold pieces. What years and grades would he recommend, raw or certified?
-Comment and Question: I just finished reading “the Currency Wars” written in 2011 and the “Death of Money” written in 2014 by James Rickards where he basically says that the Fed and other Central bankers have run out of ammo and in the process destroying the dollar and other currencies and the only clean balance sheet is the IMF with their SDR’s. The EU, US, and Russia are waiting for China to get its gold stash to meet the ratio of 2.7 of Gold to GDP and have a seat at the IMF table.
When the next financial crisis comes that will be the end of the dollar as dominant reserve currency, with the concurrence of the US.?
