    yes, obviously. But how? Should you hold it, hide it, use it, invest it, solar, wind, hydro, geothermal,? Nuke?;) what?

    the sale of $1.5 million of gold coin for paper. Invested in land, a home built to my specifications, limited power use home, solar primary and wind backup. Well with a solar powered electric pump for filling a house cistern, and a good old fashioned country windmill with a retention pond for fish and surface water for my livestock. Geothermal cooling, The dwelling itself an earth dome for heat retention/cool retention/defensibility. An additional hardened cement basement for storage and safety with necessaries against NBC. Move all my preps in.
    keep the remainder of the gold locked away safely. Divest myself from humanity. I am sick of it anyway.

    You know I forgot one simple thing. Cash out and give 10% tithe. THAT is for dang sure.

    Well, that happens, with the first thought, but with second reflection, The Spirit, usually comes thru...

    Won't the IRS walk off with 40 odd percent of it?
    Pretty sure here it would either be 'crown property' with a small percentage of the estimated value paid to the finder, or it'll be calculated as taxable income.

    1st thing, don't go blabbing to the media about it. Slowly, very slowly sell the coins off to raise capital.

    Drop off grid, change my cell number and home number. Pay off all of my personal debts and help family members as I see fit. (yes, i have some that would come out of the woodwork begging for help)

    Invest in a nice chunk of land and have a house built to my specifications.

    You know, I keep looking around my hunting land hoping to find something. So far all I've found are bricks, cement blocks, wire, empty beer bottles and a large piece of plastic.

    Keep my yap shut for starters and not make sudden, drastic changes to my lifestyle.


    Carefully "clean" enough PM into worthless FRN's to establish an offshore trust to purchase real estate in an area with minimal / no zoning or permitting for a homestead.

    and keep my yap shut.

    Gotta wonder if those coins are worth so much from melt value or numismatic rarity.

    Rarity, per the article.

    Hm. That will put anonymity out the window. No sale without proper provenance, or the immediate suspicion is counterfeit.
