Will show up nicely on a metal dectector getting on a plane...

I'm sticking to SMALL coins, that fit in a coin-purse... like Sovereigns & Roosters... "Value in a tiny package".... and will just look like "small change" in the airport x-ray...

I can still remember carting a dolly with 23 One-hundred-ounce bars of silver to the coin shop... when the same "value" in gold coins would've fit in my pockets... I lucked out, silver was @ 40/oz... even though it was to pay an IRS "fine"...

I have no clue why getting on a plane influences what you buy but to each his own....FYI...they mail the coins to me...I do not have to get a flight to pick them up. :bombing aircraft

...but then they see a large metalic disc on the scanner, which is likely to result in further interrogation.

I don't care one way or another mind you, I don't fly anymore...cuz the TSA can sukkit, but I see dacrunch's reasoning as sound.

I'm not getting on any plane with any precious metals I would have had it not been for that unfortunate boating accident you all must have heard about by now. I'm not leaving my home.

No I hadn't heard...sorry mang. I've had my own issues with boats and metals(routinely), so I can relate. Man, those PMs should come with some kind of a warning so we know to keep them far away from large bodies of water. Perhaps we should start a petition to force the PM suppliers to label bullion so others can learn from our repeated misfortune.

<sigh> If only I had a double eagle for every unintended(and unattached) boat anchor I've created... Sh1t, they don't even keep the boat from moving...without a rope attached I finally discovered. Who. knew.
