What Is A Good Way To Store Gold Coins?

April 12, 2010 by  

Dear Bob,

I want my son to get some coins each month, but where can he hide them in an apartment that is not in a safe or lock box that someone can pick up and carry away? What is a good way to store them?


Dear JZ,

First of all, tell no one that you have gold on the premises. That goes for friends and relatives. Any slip of the tongue can alert a thief to your valuables who would be more diligent in a search than would a burglar who picked your home at random.

After that, there are some simple tricks you can use depending upon the way your apartment is constructed. If there are voids in closets (ceilings or walls) you can buy a small—preferably fireproof—safe and secure it in the void. Be sure the void is covered in such a way that it doesn’t look different from its surroundings. If you have large baseboards you can remove one section and cut a small hole in the drywall and place your gold behind the baseboard, securing the baseboard with just a couple of nails for easy removal. You can purchase a package of frozen vegetables or fruit or a container of ice cream, remove the contents and put your coins in the container and the container in the freezer. Most burglars won’t look there. You can also place a few coins at a time in envelopes and tape them inside your cabinets to the underside of the countertop. If you use a little bit of imagination you can thwart most common thieves.

Best Wishes,

    This is the best series of articles I have ever seen on how the government has been stealing from its citizens, how inflation works, etc., because it is a simple explanation of econonomics that a layman can understand. Can you take this a step further by simplifying to a point that, say a 6th grader could understand and putting it in the hands of a person like Ron Paul or Sarah Palin or . . . to present to the public thru our tabloid style press? Put this material in a place where EVERYBODY can see it! I remember how everybody had some kind of understanding of the Monica Lewinsky goings-on, while almost nobody understood what was happening to cause the housing bubble, the banking system, etc.
    The problem is that people who ALREADY AGREE with you are the ones who read your letters, the uninformed do not become informed. I have friends who are liberals and who vote Democratic because they truly believe that the OUTCOMES, like healthcare for everybody, are truly noble causes! These people truly do not understand the irony of how the effort to CREATE these outcomes actually DEPRIVES more and more people of these outcomes! It’s all about PERCEPTIONS, it is why people blame “greedy corporations” for high unemployment, etc. I think you see what I’m getting at, keep up the good work, thank you very much, Paul
