Welcome to a new Fortune & Freedom video series which asks the question: which money is best?

Over the coming days… weeks… months, or possibly even years, we’re going to be inviting guests to come and make the case for why their favourite form of money is the best form.

From seashells to silver, just about anything has been used as currency at some point. But not all forms of money are created equal, and very few have stood the test of time.

In this episode I’m joined by John Butler, and we will be looking into the form of money which I suspect many of you favour: gold.
