I've had a few friends mention over the years that they'd prefer to keep their money in bullion anymore after all the drama with the banks. While I haven't been sold on the idea, it seems like my friend was not alone. There are whole websites about gold bullion as collectible and a liquid investment. Interesting concept!
Have you ever tried to buy bullion or another investment with your money instead of saving it the traditional way (in an account of some sort)? I'd have to say that more than a few people do just that, since there's information available about how and where to buy gold bullion and even talk about a gold IRA. Maybe I'm the odd one out?
