In this video, I explain why the 1/10oz Eagle is the best gold coin for preppers.
In this video, I explain 3 reasons why Junk Silver is the best precious metal to buy first when preparing for a financial meltdown.
Fractional gold coins are coins that are a fraction of the weight of their 1 ounce counter part but carry the same design.
For example, a 1 ounce gold eagle has a smaller 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz version that carry the same design on the front and back with the only exceptions being the size of the coin and the weight that is stamped on the coin.
The most common bullion coins that have fractional coins of themselves are:
Gold Eagle’s, Gold Maple leaf’s, Gold Krugerrand’s, Gold Kangaroo’s and Gold Panda’s
In my opinion, 1/10 oz Eagles are the best coin to buy for people preparing for a financial meltdown. They are easily recognized. They are affordable and they are very portable. This is what makes them perfect for bartering when our fiat currency returns to it’s intrinsic value of $0.00.
The best gold coin to own is the 1/10 ounce gold eagle. It is the best gold coin to own for 3 reasons:
The first reason is recognizability.
The 1/10 ounce coin looks the same as the 1 ounce Gold Eagle. The only difference is that it is smaller and carries a 1/10 ounce mark as opposed to the 1 ounce marking. Anyone who is familiar with gold bullion coins will be able to recognize it. The same can’t be said for many foreign coins.
The second reason is affordability.
You don’t want to be stuck with a coin that’s worth $1000+ like the 1 ounce coin when you are buying groceries.
The third reason is portability.
It is far easier to carry and store ten 1/10 ounce Gold Eagles then it is to carry and store 75+/- ounces of Silver Eagles which is how many you would have to buy with same number of dollars.
BEST metal to buy, without a doubt is Junk Silver.
The term Junk Silver refers to Dimes, Quarters and Half-dollars minted in the US prior to 1965. These coins contain 90% silver. They are the BEST metal to own for 3 reasons.
The first reason is affordability.
You don’t have to invest a big pile of money in order to buy junk Silver. In fact, you can buy it for as little as five bucks or so on eBay for a single junk silver quarter. Obviously, the premium goes down as the quantity goes up.
Junk silver is traded in increments of $1.00 face value. That is to say, 10 dimes sell for the same as 4 quarters and 4 quarters sell for the same a 1 half-dollar and either 2 quarters or 5 dimes. This is because any combination of coins that total $1.00 face value all weighed the same when they were minted and as such had the same silver content.
The second reason is because it’s easily recognizable.
The majority of people around the world have seen a US quarter dime for half dollar this is very useful when it comes time for authenticating on the go. this is what makes junk silver so valuable. You can use it to make every day transactions without the fear of having the coins rejected because the seller doesn’t know if they are Authentic.
The third reason is because it comes in quantities small enough to use for every day barter.
The last thing you want is to have a bullion coin it’s worth 1000+ dollars when you need to buy a loaf of bread. Today, junk silver dimes are worth around $1.50 and a quarters worth around $3.75. For this reason alone, you should buy junk silver in the smallest denomination first and only after you have enough for a years’ worth of living expenses minimum should you going to buy other forms of gold and silver bullion.
