Today gold is in the $265.00 range. I know that the money in the banks are not safe, but I would think it would be better to wait until gold declines further. Please let me know how much you think the gold price would be say within 6 months, 1 year and when Y2K hits. This should be very interesting.

I think most of the people I've encountered that are planning for this are thinking more along the lines of putting a "few" coins aside as a universal currency. I'd be interested in hearing Richard's take on the matter as a financial manager. How concerned is your client?

I believe you'll find that gold is closer to the $300. range @ $296. an ounce.
