Breaking news: counterfeiting
Quick thought. I've seen a lot of comments about why gold can not be used as currency...people wouldn't be able to easily tell if it were real or not
Well, how's that any different than telling if counterfeit bills are real or not?
Plus its a heck of a lot easier to make fake paper money than fools gold
And this would all be assuming we were off of a gold standard and using straight up physical gold as currency
