I have always been leery of the gold/silver thing in large part because there is not remotely enough of it in most communities for it to govern a working post-SHTF economy. Another aspect of this is that all economics will be local post-SHTF and the value of gold/silver will fluctuate wildly to a degree that it wouldn’t be a sound arbiter of value. Yes it is a very good thing to have but of higher priority is addressing basic food/water/heat/security matters. You can have all the gold in the world but there isn’t enough food to go around nobody will be selling any.
