The Incas hoarded much silver and gold. You couldn't leave the planet without it.
The metals were held in high esteem.
Silver was referred to as " the tears of the moon"
Gold was known as " the sweat of the sun"
Being an old romantic myself, I prefer silver!

I was looking for some scrap gold to make some rings with. Not a chance. Silver is pretty cheap at the moment, Gold through the roof.

Taking lots of gold and silver with you must make it harder to lift off...
