    I just leave mine sitting on the kitchen table so I can keep looking at it. All 3/4 of a gram.

    we built a house on the down hill side of the street. when the footings were dug the oversize space was sutch that half the front porch was needing basement depth footing and half were very close to the disturbed area so we made the whole 28 foot by 6 foot wide foundation at basement level. the owner idgnored my sugestion that it would make a great fruit storage room threw trash in there and had them form up solid concrete walls all around then of course the top was the concrete covered steel deck. further the footings had drain tube outside and the walls all waterproofed of course. I have always wondered if he cut a door into that space with space at 100 dollersa a foot it would be a free 16000 dollers worth of space. not only great to store caned food but anything else needing a cool dry space.

    Out here that seems pretty common now, the front porch pour leaves a room in the basement, and some are putting vault doors on them for making a gun room, etc....a buddy's room is maybe 8x12? Just guessing, but yes, stupid not to keep it a room for sure

    Well, you do need some placer on hand to make change!

    I store mine in the ballast compartment of my sub. "MR. LAND! CLOSE THAT DOOR!" The rest is stored on the island Vulcania.

    I prefer to keep my gold in my backyard stream widely distributed in small amounts amongst the iron oxides sometimes even inside rocks, sulfides, and tellurides! Ain't nobody gonna get "me gold!" Muuuuuhahahahaha!

    I don't really know what I'd do with it. The one thing I know that I would definitely NOT do is put it in a bank safety deposit box. No-Freaking-way, gold is just too easy to liquidate as commodity.

    Speaking of liquid, I heard of a guy that keeps a bit of gold as a chloride. Auric chloride is a liquid. If you don't know how to separate the two elements it would be essentially worthless. Even if you know he had it you might not figure out that it ain't sloe gin.

    That's why you have to wrap the plastic coffee can in aluminum foil to block the gold from the detector signals.
