Is Liberian Legal Tender worth anything in US?
Currently, the Liberian Dollar is at 57:1 against the US Dollar. So, that crappy, foil covered $20 note, those hucksters at the National Collector's Mint are trying to pawn off, are worth about 31 cents, and you have to go to Liberia to cash it in. Nice. One could argue that the subject note should be worth its weight in silver which is approximately $18 per ounce (as of July 08)... unfortunately, they don't tell you how much it weighs. Furthermore, they state it is "struck in pure silver leaf" which seems to imply that it isn't solid silver, but silver-coated. Truly a fine specimen of dishonest and misleading advertising.
