funny you should mention that.
i didn't invest in old Spanish coins, but about twelve years ago i did toss some money into a bunch of U.S twenty dollar gold pieces. they didn't have much numismatic value, just about 10% above the intrinsic gold value. (i think i just wanted to fondle them. which i've since done. and now are now in my sisters safety deposit box.)
anyway, you know what happened to the price of gold.
it's taken twelve years now for my stock portfolio to double
, the gold has increased five fold in the same time.
oh well, i suppose i could have invested in real estate and be REALLY pissed at myself.
