Depends. Have some family that has made the real McCoy. Mind you, I do not mean "sugar top" whiskey- I mean sour mash that has been doubled, backed, and twisted (for those that fail to understand the terms, tutoring is available after the apocalypse- at reasonable rates)

More portable than corn, does not spoil, actually improves with age, well established commodity, and a shining example of being able to improve the worth of raw materials by the application of knowledge and skill. Low tech production quite feasible.

While I'm on the subject, how much more would I have to cough up if I were to trade my ounce for an American Eagle?

Depends on what you have but expect American Eagles at about 10-15% above spot.

Use this as a reference. Bullion Direct: Browse Catalog

Gold is going up too, from what I've read the government will supposedly seize it after it reaches $2000 an ounce.

I bought six 750 ml. bottles of Evan Williams Kentucky sour mash at $15.49 a bottle. Put these in the cupboard with the extra tp and a few other barter goods and I'm good.
The wife and I are reasonably self sufficent and I have one barter item that everyone will need if the collapse comes. I have a 300 foot well that has some really sweet water and the means to retrieve it. Nothing will trade better than alcohol or ammo.
We have put back extra flour, sugar, wheat berries, salt (lots of salt), tp and a few other food items. We raise dairy goats and have different friends that raise beef, chickens, and pork. The rest of the world can just pass us by.
Oh and as far as spending gold, I prefer silver and have enough to do ok with any currency.

Over the past 6-8 months I have also added a few extra bricks of .22lr along with some russian .223. Can't reload it but it shoots minute of critter all day long so it's plenty accurate. Lets just say I'm good on ammo.
