as investments are not US coinage...

I'll happily own a Canadian Maple Leaf. I have a few gold coins from all over the world...

But the US gov't claims the right to TAKE any US gold coinage you have (not own). Because the US gov't considers itself as the owner of any US currency. That you may be the HOLDER of it, but they ultimately own it and control it.

Now, if I lived in some other nation outside of the REACH of the US Treasury, I would consider keeping US Gold coins.
