He’s just another troll to ignore. Don’t take the bait...
Are you preparedness shaming?
Like being noticed much? Look, I been a coin collector almost fifty years. Because I seldom sell I became a PM stacker as an aside. I rather enjoy knowing my will has stacks of silver and gold relegated out to my kids and grandkids. And in the meantime, well I get to enjoy them..... Look @Lembeck13, coin collecting is different for everyone. That’s but one of the reasons it is such a great hobby. There is simply no wrong way to go about it. I couldn’t have remotely dreamed twenty years ago that error collecting would be center stage today. It is not an interest of mine, but I certainly do not deride those that find pleasure searching for them. So how bout you slide your soapbox back under the bed. You are doing yourself no favors continuing down this path.
Also, what's very funny about this criticism is that he has it completely backwards. Numismatics has far more in common with comic book collecting, antiques, and ephemera than bullion. The reason is because coin collecting and comic book collecting is all based on subjective collectible value. That's it. Bullion, on the other hand--whether you personally feel this way or not--is an investment. There is far less subjectivity in the value of bullion; bullion, therefore, has much more in common with stock market investing.
So, if one is to criticize "money making potential" that should be directed toward collectibles, not investments.
Collectible: cars, toys, antiques, art, video games, etc.
Investments: stocks, bonds, commodities, bullion, etc.
I’m definitely using that.
