Gold - Digigold or coins?
in Savings & investments
27 replies 1.3K views
Hi. All of my saving investments are in cash isa form - 100K plus - in several well-know UK building societies. I'm getting twitchy about inflation rates (I know, I know, I should have had the sense to have diversified before now, but I am where I am), and I've just started to think I need to get my savings act together. While not wanting to appear too paranoid, I'm also thinking, "what if the IT 'apocalypse' or SHTF situation arrives and all my digital 'cash', and indeed even the real stuff in my wallet, disappears or is rendered useless?".
It would be reassuring to have something tangible to trade/exchange, etc. Should I invest in digigold coins (I'm thinking Royal Mint)? Or would it be better to have some actually coins stashed under-under-my-bed (obviously, not literally), which I could access even if the internet/digital world crumbles?
Thanks in advance for views and comments.
