The U.S. Dollar used to be based on a Gold Standard.....
Beginning around 1934, it took about 35 U.S. dollars to buy one troy ounce of Gold.

Froggie President Charles de Gaulle tried to weaken the U.S. Dollar in the Sixties, so POTUS Nixon eventually took the U.S. dollar off of a Gold Standard.....
So, today, it takes over $1200.00 U.S. dollars to buy one troy ounce of Gold.....

A better question would be: Which has the most value, Gold or Silver. The answer may surprise you.

There will always be a market for gold. Gold speaks to the inner reptile. Money is the useful one, but it wouldn't be a good idea to hoard bank notes.

Depends. During inflation gold holds its value. During recession
money gains value. And in a depression cash is king. beer

Gold. Take Kruger rands, an ounce of gold, I was given my first as a teenager, cost R30. I was given R50 in cash at the same time. R50 now wouldn't buy me a packet of cigarettes in the UK. Guess what my Kruger rand is worth?

I was taught that the cost of goods and services double every ten years(roughly). I think that's a little agressive, but it more true than not.

Essentially what that means is the buying power of 20 dollars in cash

will be cut in half every ten years.


American real estate followed that ten year rule pretty well

before the inflation and popping of the bubble.

Oh, sorry, thought you'd know. None of you have Kruger rands? uh oh

£895 today, I just looked it up. Wish I'd spent my R50, which today is worth around £3, on another, put it that way.
