The North Koreans actually were counterfeiting 50 and one hundred dollar bills that were almost perfect.
$400,000 got you one million in N. Korean "super notes".
My son way back invested in silver, I believe when it was about $26 or $28.
It was at $32 and I went to a place that buys gold and silver and asked about selling it, they were paying $4 an ounce less than market.
I have a friend who went to sell his gold eagles, same thing, he was offered (I believe) a couple hundred less than going rate.

"Gold extended its rally to hit the highest in more than seven years on concern that the coronavirus pandemic will have a deep effect on the global economy, hammering corporate earnings while supercharging demand for havens.

'What's happening here is that the Fed is expanding its balance sheet and every other central bank in the world is doing the same,' he told Bloomberg TV. 'What you're looking at is massive currency debasement in the long term. That's the major reason why gold is higher, and I would think that over the next few weeks or months, we're probably going to retest the high that we saw in 2011.'"
