Letter Re: Buying Krugerrands


I know you don’t give out investment advice, but I started buying gold and silver bullion ever since I read the first Patriots book.

What’s your personal opinion of the 1-oz krugerrand? Right now at mintproducts.com there is a special price. It’s going for less than the price of the 1-oz gold eagle. – F.R.

JWR’s Comment: Krugerrands are fine, and they usually do sell for less than comparable weight American Eagles. But make sure that you have plenty of small barter silver on hand, before you branch out into gold.
