Smartest plan I heard of (no way to confirm) was a well known Jew living in 1930s Germany.

He sold his buisness and his home a bought gold coins. Then melted them down, and cast the metal into spanners wrenches, and other auto tools.

He painted them, rubbed them with oil and dirt, and tossed them into his car. Then took his family into the Swiss Alps for a picknick.
They packed nothing in the car except the tool box and lunch, and they never returned.

Gold is good if purchased discretly, and stored at home. I recommend sealing your coins in a section of pvc pipe, and burrying the pipe in a trench next to your main water line.

No and I would not either. I just disagree with that particular approach in that particular place. That does not mean it is a bad idea. There was little us in posting about the other parts of you post I agree with.

There are a lot of Reloading Scales available for less than $100, both digital and manual (not requiring batteries). They are usually accurate to a tenth of a grain (There are 15+ grains in a gram).

An alternative would be to put a stop on one of the derivative gold contracts.

If you want barter items in a SHTF situation, then stock up on bullets and canned foods. Clearly the bullets last longer!

Do you know what PVC does to silver? And silver dollars for smaller transactions? Huh? How small? Silver dimes are what you want.

If you want gold as wealth preservation in today's pre-SHTF or no-SHTF world, Maple Leafs or US Eagles are plenty good. Easily hidden somewhere in or around your house.

Post SHTF? My opinion is that US junk silver would come to be used in commerce, and more opinion is that dimes and quarters would be preferred. There will always be the issue of making change.

The everyday trade, barter or make change PM will be silver for goods, medicine, food, fuel, etc...
Our opinion as well.

Gold is just be a means of portable wealth for the family, for AFTER return to normalcy. A long wait.

Not much use amidst an SHTF, other than above if recognized the downturn at the beginning stage & want to buy out a neighbor & there stock. They may be interested in the portability if relocating to other family. As an overly simplified example.

We spent over $50K on fuel this year placer gold mining.
Winter is upon us, crew cleaning up & mothballing the mine site.
Happy camper, a VERY productive season.
