Has anyone seen these yet?



Cards about the size of a credit card, which consist of 50 dividable 1 gram chips of pure gold!



Im not sure IF I've call this a conspiracy, but gold has been the standard of "money" for ages... perhaps millennia...

Many people believe keeping gold is the only way to insure your financial well being...

And since money these days is nothing more then paper... Could this be the next currency?

These gold "chocolate" bars as they're called are selling at $2,200 each from what I've seen...

I just think they look cool...


and apparently they come in a few flavors...

You got to watch people selling or buying gold as i have seen people get ripped off by not knowing that it goes by the troy scale


Gold is traditionally measured in Troy weight; a set of units of mass commonly used for precious metals. Note that the Troy pound and ounce quoted are different from the Avoirdupois units that other goods are commonly measured in. The units available for this gold conversion tool are:

Carats (metric) (CM), Centigrams (cg), Grains (gr), Grams (g), Kilograms (kg), Milligrams (mg), Ounces Avoir (oz), Ounces Troy (t oz), PennyWeights (pwt), Pounds Troy, Tonnes (metric ton) (t)

Gold is not a currency, gold is a commodity. Big difference. There is an actual use for gold in this world, and limited supply of it. Currency is fiat, and is printed quicker than stamps.

A coin of copper,
the size of a silver dollar,
has a dollar's worth of copper in it..

Currently, our money is so inflated that we could use almost anything for dollars and immediately switch to a hard currency.
(hard currency means fixed currency, not coinage)

Small gold would be easy to counterfeit if it were used alot.

Perhaps someone should change that...

Money that's actually worth something as opposed to paper...

This might be a brilliant idea... I think Valcambi might be on to something with these

When we're starving in a nuclear wasteland, a whole truckload of gold won't be worth one pig. I see the way we assign value to currencies as a major flaw in the collective psyche of our species.

Exactly right. I was about to write the same.

People need to remember/learn the difference between "Money" and "Currency".
There is no way out of the fiat-scheme without seeing through this.
