I'm about to start stacking but we're starting late. We're in our 60's but not quite old enough to get a pension/superannuation. Mortgage paid, no debt. Cash in the bank and we're thinking it's a silly place to keep it given the current turmoil in the world. The purpose of stacking is to retain the value of savings should financial systems go belly-up. I'm thinking of bubbles bursting and bank bail-ins. Because of our age, being able to sell quickly and easily is a major consideration should we need it in a hurry. The plan so far is a goal of 3,000 oz silver and 60 oz gold. I think that is sizeable enough to cover a SHTF situation to protect us and family - short term at least. At current rates that's about $200k NZD, we don't have that amount but can expect an inheritance within a 5 year period, but we can start building a stack now. However, when I started looking at the weight 3,000 oz silver is 85 kgs and I can't see a couple of oldies hefting that in backpacks and heading for the hills in a SHTF situation LOL We might split it into 3 or 4 parcels - family can cart their own. Thoughts? I'm leaning towards sliver coins; silver eagles, maples, Britannia and a Aussie coin. I consider these to be the most recognisable and therefore easiest to liquidate. I'll also buy a few 10oz silver bars. For gold - majority in 1 oz coins and some smaller weights in recognisable bars (Perth mint or Pamp). Am I on the right track?
