GOLD: The poor man’s gold investment

http://www.survivalblog.com/2011/02/the_nitty_gritty_on_nickels.html

*** begin quote ***

$300 face value (150 rolls @$2 face value per roll) fit easily fit in a standard U.S. Postal Service Medium Flat Rate Box, and that weighs about 68 pounds.) They can be mailed from coast to coast for less than $25. Doing so will take a bit of reinforcement. Given enough wraps of strapping tape, a corrugated box will securely transport $300 worth of Nickels

*** end quote ***

Everyone will laugh at “investing” in nickels, but he who laffs last …

Today, pre-64 silver coins command a 20 times face value. And, that’s what you get retail.

2011 – 1964 = 47 years

20x = 2000%

2000 / 47 = 42% roi

There is NO reason to think that nickels won’t have a similar experience.

Like the author says, the only the things that are certain in life are death, taxes, and inflation!

In fifty years, you’ll be saying “Shoulda, coulda, and woulda! if I’d a listened to that crazy fat old white guy injineer, I’d be rich.” I will be dealing with other problems when you say, so I will be unavailable to say “I told you so.”
