USA GOLD RESERVES - A - Z
When food shortages and the energy crisis really begins to bite, only gold, silver and gemstones will be worth anything, by way of savings and pensions. Banks who trade in real coin of the realm, are the only ones who will be trusted in the future. Coins could soon make a comeback. The good news is that countries do not need to mint their own. Anyone can produce a quarter ounce dollar, based on the value of gold itself, rather than what any nation says it is worth. We'd suggest that gold is index linked to food, timber and other essential commodities.
In days gone by they traded in real money based on solid gold and silver minted coins. Today, paper currency is based on worthless promises, made by governments that are typically corrupt is some measure; political pirates, racking up staggering national debts, based on flawed policies. There are though some countries who are building up real wealth. Gold reserves as ingots and bars, that will be worth something when the digital/paper system collapses. Paper and digital currency is no better than Crypto currencies. Here today, gone tomorrow.
So it is that when John Storm discovers a long lost hoard of treasure, a number of nations are keen to get their grubby mitts on it. To add to their stockpiles.

Total American reserves are worth over $656 billion (£546bn). But
still nowhere near covering their staggering National Debt of $Trillions, in
borrowed and printed paper money.
