Jedi If the economy totally collapses tomorrow, can I go to the grocery store and get a month's grocery with a gold coin? Will they accept that? Will my doctor accept a gold coin in return for giving me a physical?

Probably. Which is more than you can say for any kind of paper or plastic.

Other items reputed to have value after the crash:

antibiotics
spices
needles
