Conversation About the Guy Who Died and Left $7 Million in Hidden Gold Coins

MELISSA: Do you hear about that guy who left all that gold behind?
ME: No.
MELISSA: He died and when they went into his house they found seven million dollars in gold coins. He doesn’t have any heirs.
ME: I’ll be his son.
MELISSA: And he had a ton of stock, too.
ME: So how he did he manage to save all that money?
MELISSA: He never had any children. That’s why he had so much money.

    “Samaszko had $200 in the bank, stock accounts worth $165,000 and $12,000 in cash at the house” and $7 million in gold… Looks to me like he had his retirement funds properly allocated!

    Just about. :-)

    Though this is one of reasons I think it’s a good idea to not pull all of your cash investments out of the mainstream, i.e., completely offline. There’s some risk with banks and ETFs and stocks, but there’s also the risk of robbery, fire, and just plain losing stuff because someone forget where it was or croaked without leaving a treasure map.
