So, if there was a new hampshire currency, what would you make it look like?  Here's my contribution, it's not very high quality

Who's that ugly woman?  I'd avoid the company based on that alone.


And is 1 gram of gold so cumbersome it needs to be substituted w/ paper for daily transactions?  The nice thing about gold is it's no problem to carry several thousand dollars worth in your pocket.

Also, I'd get rid of that part that says it's meant to be used in place of the dollar.  Does the issuing company really give a damn what it's used for?  It might be incriminating, if not now then soon enough.

The woman was Ayn Rand, and the one gram was just my version of a pun (1g of gold= .02cents)

As far as the disclaimer is concerned, have you heard what happened to the liberty dollar?

So, if I buy 28 gram-notes, you'll exchange it for one ounce of gold?

I know who she is. 

the $.02 thing is very witty.

I'm aware of the liberty dollar.  That's why I wouldn't mention it's intended to replace the dollar.

Ayn Rand used the U.S. dollar sign as her personal symbol...  Ironygasm!

Why not put several dead intellectuals on there, including Murray Rothbard, Ludwig von Mises, etc.  Or maybe some living ones will give their permission, like David D. Friedman, Lew Rockwell, etc.

Otherwise - me like.

Bureaucrats have bad reading comprehension skills, perhaps you should underline the NOT in "NOT A U.S. DOLLAR"...  :roll:

And why make it green(ish)?  Why not black text on gold-colored background?

Word on the street is, right now the smart money is shorting gold.

You know, its a good idea. Gold is so valuable per ounce that its difficult to make transactions without a smaller increment to buy and sell in. Unless you plan to one day pay your mortgage with a bar of gold, a lighter, and a ceramic bowl.

That's because the big investors get out of gold investment and put that money back into the stock market when the street heats up.

Yeah, that's why it's better to use a whole basket of tangible commodities, and make it redeemable in your choice of several of them.
