Buy 5 gram Gold BarsIf the monetary system ever breaks down (like it already has in Zimbabwe - check out our video on the effects of hyper-inflation), a 5 gram gold bar will come in handy when you want to buy food, fill gas in your car or buy toilet paper and shaving cream.
While you might buy the gold ETF for your investments, if the worst case scenario comes true, you'll need a handful of these gold bars just to survive! Make sure you have these handy along with silver bars for exact change. Historically, silver has traded for 1/16th the price of gold. While it is currently closer to 1/60th, in a currency collapse this ratio will come back to the historic mean.
