The problem with gold is surviving long enough to spend it. If all you have is fiat paper, the government won't kill you for it. If you have hard money, they put you on the train.

Another reason to start coin collecting. I still have my old dime and quarter collection from my childhood with coins were made with real silver.

Harder to do now, but still possible.

The guy's comment on credit unions is spot on - after 30 years with Navy Federal I don't see why anyone does business wiht a bank. Credit unions give better service, have fewer and lower fees, and pay better rates.
