Here we are in the modern world with all our differing currencies, apart from the Eurozone (for now), but when it comes down to hard tacks people in the know and central banks start to buy and hoard gold and, to some extent, silver.
Earlier in November 2011 we had the argument over whether Germany should sell some of its gold to backstop the Euro, or whether Italy should sell some of its gold to pay down debt directly.
No-one was talking about fiat (paper) money.
So, if it’s good enough for the knowledgeable and for the central banks maybe it’s good enough for you?
A good way to start is at BULLIONVAULT by clicking here. You might even get some free gold or silver!
