You and your family are on a great vacation when the unthinkable happens – a catastrophe strikes. With you and your family stranded, away from home, how will you make your way back? Good preppers would be prepared with the bare survival essentials, packed away in your travel emergency kit.
While a properly stocked emergency kit will help to sustain your family for a day or two, it’s possible the journey to your shelter may take a week, a month or more! You may be forced to travel on foot if transportation networks are incapacitated or inundated with people trying to escape urban centers. In these cases, you will need to be able to buy or barter for supplies to replenish your emergency stocks.
In these cases, gold can serve as a powerful bartering tool. It can help you establish equivalency in trades involving items that may be difficult to compare (for instance, apples for bandages). It can also be utilized as currency to purchase supplies from businesses along the way if paper money proves to lose its value.
Noble Mint recommends the Coyote Pack for preppers traveling in small groups to a place of refuge. The Coyote Pack contains a total of 20 - 24k certified gold bars in increments that will enable near currency-like transactions. The Coyote Pack contains 10 - .125g (1/8th gram) bars and 10 - .25g (1/4 gram) bars. In today's markets, these individual bars have a value of between $15 and $25, but in times of emergency, their perceived value will probably be much higher because everyone understands the value of pure gold.
