Many people today long for the day when “honest” money arrives that is based upon gold and silver. The fact of the matter is that you can begin contracting for payment in gold and silver right now.
Both payment and acceptance of gold and silver can be in bullion form or you can use U.S. legal tender coins of gold and silver. Here are the U.S. legal tender coins and their legal tender face value:
$50 American Eagle 1 oz Fine Gold
$25 American Eagle 1/2 oz Fine Gold
$10 American Eagle 1/4 oz Fine Gold
$5 American Eagle 1/10 oz Fine Gold
$1 American Eagle 1 oz Fine Silver
Pre-1965 U.S. Silver dimes, quarters & half-dollars.
You can also use any of the older silver dollars (Morgan/Peace Dollars) minted between 1878 – 1935.
You can purchase all of these from any coin or bullion dealer.
