When all the gold and uranium is sucked from the ground ....than what?

Do you side for the next coin? Like the coin we design once the values of bombs, genocide, and gold value is gone.? We've exhausted all our resources, and taking jewelry from well meaning good jewelers that sold it only later to melt it down is kind of .....2nd hand radical tackiness, don't you think?

  • LOL we haven't hardly exhausted our resources. Gold and steel and bombs are passe. The currency of this millennium is information.

  • If the value of currency were still based on gold, and we ran out of gold, we'd simply transfer it to something else. Tribal communities used shells or beads. There will always be something we can assign value to.

  • We are still mining gold not having any care what it does to the earth mining this simple thing. IF it were dirt that were worth value, or a chiseled stick, or shells, or beads, don't think we've decided to go back as a country, money is the object of desire, it's portable, and easier to handle. Coins in the world are each marked, with a person's face on it. Puts the value on that not the money's worth.

  • No matter what it is, it will likely come from the earth - anything man-made would be fiat currency ... oh wait, we already have that.

  • money is the object of desire

    Money has nothing to do with gold. You do realize we haven't used the gold standard for decades, right? The value of a dollar is based off a complex algorithm that accounts for the market value of several hundred resources and commodities.
