List of Gold-Standard 'national' currencies
« on: December 10, 2005, 06:17:49 PM »

Hey guys, I've been looking around for a list or brief overview of some kind of all the national(ized?) currencies that are still precious metals based. I poked around the liberty dollar site several times, and wasn't able to really find a whole lot of info. I e-mailed Norfed (I thik), and if I did, I didn't get any response about it. It was a long time ago, hence I don't even remember for sure if I actually did try to contact them.

Anyway, the point here is that I'm looking for this information for research/advocacy purposes, and it would be good ammo to have on hand so to speak.

Thanks in advance,
Andrew

Doesn't Switzerland have gold backed Francs?

The banking cartels control every monetary system on the planet.

This is your wake up call.

I believe brokor is correct, and all government currencies are fiat currencies.

But one thing is for sure:  there are private currency alternatives.

Coffee- That link doesn't help very much, no offense. I already know what the situation with the US/ALD/FRNs is. The question is whether other countries are still metals backed. I heared recently somewhere that the Iraqi currenty under Sadaam was? This sounds very counter-productive for a stalin-worshiping Baath-socialist dictator to do, so I would take this with a huge brick of salt...
