Interestingly, chocolate gold coins cost no more than chocolate silver coins. I have a strong buy on chocolate gold coins and recommend trading the silver ones for gold at current rates.

In today's economic downturn, and I have reiterated this comment before, it makes perfect sense to acquire as much physical gold and silver as a substitute for declining dollar. It is a safeguard for our declining currency.

Yeah it's not like the value of gold could ever go down. That just doesn't happen.

Gold and silver are both high quality electrically conductive materials. Gold is nice because it doesn't oxidize, but silver is more conductive. Pros and cons.

Gold is pretty weak unless you alloy it with some other metals.

Also if you don't alloy in some lighter metals, you get 24k jewelery which looks pretty much universally tacky on all but the darkest complexions.

Silver is awesome although it can tarnish.

It is only safeguard if you have enough morons who want to buy it from you at the higher prices.

Okay, would you have preferred I use "corrosion" instead of oxidation?
