Hoo-wee, am I glad I didn't invest in that shit.

Although I suppose a sufficiently motivated, demented freak could theoretically make child-abuse imagery using gold and silver (melt some down and make a figurine? Convert CP imagery to a bump-map and stamp it on gold foil?), that is not ordinarily the thing that comes to mind.

Also, gold and silver have, y'know, been commonly recognized as money across wide swaths of human societies for the past five thousand years.

There are four kinds of true wealth, in the following order of value (1 and 2 are very close though):

  1. Knowledge and skills;
  2. Personal relationships;
  3. Tools and materials;
  4. Gold and silver.
