    I am more concerned on how I will spend all of my lottery winnings than where I will hide my tons of gold.

    Keep it in your sock drawer. That's what I do. Nobody ever looks for gold there.

    Here in the Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut), mob and other organized crime types invested a lot of their cash in gold coins. The preferred way to stash the coins was in sections of PVC pipe capped or duct taped at both ends. They usually buried these tubes in their tomato gardens, or below their bedroom windows. The stashes that were found (that I know about), were usually about 24" deep, and contained anywhere from 25-100 gold Eagles, Krugerrand's, or Maple Leaf's.

    Just never know!

    I see no reason to collect or keep large quantities of native gold other than some specimens. For them I would have them fully documented, appraised for collectors value, insured, then loan them to museums/institutions for public display so that all can enjoy them. I would probably keep some gold at home, in a safe, with a few of lesser value on display.

    Just wishful thinking on my part. Like Clay, right now what gold I have is in a sock drawer.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Safety deposit boxes are unavailable in a financial crash if the bank is closed.

    Just the time when you need the gold...

    I be happy with one gold coin. even if run over by a rottotiller.
    Remember couple years back the folks found the cans full of coins north calif. What ever became of that. they gets to keep.
    I think it was talk of being a hold up loot stash?

    Especially when the original poster hasn't been back once to this thread. He's probably far to busy googling the addresses of those who use the sock drawer or back yard method of safe keeping.
