In times of extreme economic collapse, this is the part I’m not understanding…

thus why I say its a nice collection to have, just not currency.I understand and agree with you on the fact that we’ve not had such a disaster where our currency has died (unless you count the confederacy), but those people (such as myself) who have gold, how do I convert it into a medium which will garner currency in such an economic upheaval? I’d much rather have food, supplies and such. Not living with my head buried in sand, but just speaking as a person who understands the currency value of gold, just can’t translate that in an economic upheaval.I’m just trying to understand gold as currency in such a time. The logistics of conversion.
