Not very practical to own but i would sure like to fondle some kilo+ sized gold bars
I envy people who fondle their coins.

I buy silver current year maple leafs from apmex by the roll and never open them or if I manage to be disciplined enough I get a sealed monster box of eagles and I will never open it. My coins are virgin!

I only have less than a handful of 90% I can fondle :| I think that is why I like watching other people do it.

I really only mess/fondle with stuff when i am moving stash locations .....its a lot of work to get the scuba stuff out during the winter months :) ...... i can speak to fondling 90% i one time went through a whole bag of merc dimes one by one looking to fill out a collection set....did find some keepers buy got dirty hands and eye strain from it :)

Take 5 or 10 Silver dollars & put them on a table like you're putting down a bet at a poker table, you'll never forget that sound or feel.......Real Money.

Is that what they meant when they said, "Let freedom ring?" - Maybe not buts it's close. :)

Those are very nice. I'm not usually interested in colored metals but those are on a different level and I love em.
Canadian holo lunar gold coins.....i stumbled on these three, years ago ....i thought they were different ....the colors come from the light refraction and angle of the light and camera

It's a strange thought that a single Comex gold bar is worth more then 80% of the U.S. population's retirement (aka life savings).
I gotta ask...What is the size of a Comex gold bar?

He is down about 25%, if this was purchased in 2014 - if that is any consolation.
Only 2014? Oh, dude, you're making me feel old! :D

Been through some big swings before; nothing new to me. Ag is a harsh mistress, but I knew that going in.

That's when the dude in vid said he bought his base stash. He said he doesn't look at the spot price - don't blame him, lol.

Me, I started buying in 2003 @4.86 spot. Luckily, I sold at the right time. But, then, I bought again about the same time as this dude, unfortunately.
