In a few years the intrinsic value of this coin
will exceed the face value of this coin.
No one caught the E Pluribus Fool'em. Nice touch William!
Make the denomination set by digital hologram microchip. Use them to buy back all the assets from the fed, one bailout at a time, one QE at a time. One Friday 9AM is sufficent to clean out their desks. Buy back the Fed balance sheet and close them down forever. It won't require many coins because there is no balance sheet since they haven't kept books (or gold) in five decades.
In keeping with the times, this End The Fed commerative coin will be plated with 57 mg (one mg for each state) of 99.99 pure platinum over a laminated copper core. Limit: one per TBTF bank.
Second that. Replace that poor eagle with a buzzard crapping on Bennys head. Keep it in good taste though, this is after all the new emblem of the Fed.
Actually, I think the idiots proposing these ideas are performing an invaluable service. They are highlighting the truly "Mandrake" , the magician, nature of our fractional reserve/fiat monetary system.
Deposit a trillion dollar coin with the Federal Reserve, then borrow against it. Straight out of a twisted comic book.
The horseshoe, the shamrock, the dice! I laughed. I cried. I soiled myself Thanks wb7!
I will not be part of the conspiracy to repay no trillion of nothing anyway no how.
the coins plan'd to be struck by treasury as to secure debt to ourselves will have the sacred turkey of the wild.
It's the new Amero!

Wait, Mr. 7 is in color now?
The avatar I mean..
I switched for the holidays, now I'm hooked because it's easy to spot, particularly in long comment threads.
You, through your work, are NEVER hard to spot.
i've got a rough calculation here that says that every American would get to hold the platinum coin for roughly one second a year.

Putting A Trillion Dollars Of Platinum In Perspective
So you want a trillion dollar platinum coin? Ok: here are some facts:
--Platinum has traditionally been the most valuable precious metal for one simple reason: it is rare.
--It is so rare, that all the platinum ever mined could fit into a 25 cubic foot box.
--The weight of that box comes out to just over 16 tons: this is how much platinum has been mined since the start of time.
---A coin valued at $1 trillion and made out of platinum would, at today's price of $1557/ounce, weigh in at 642.3 million ounces.
--642.3 million ounces is also roughly 18 thousand tons, or about 1100 times more than all the platinum mined.
What morons! Who elects these clowns?

Delevering bankers drooling at the till/
Something is brewing on Capital Hill/
Summon the Lorries, and summon the cabs/
This platinum pill will pay our tabs/

Why platinum? Soap would be good.
How about Fukushima plutonium?

I would like to dump some MOX in Nancy Pelosi's vineyard.
And there was I thinking I'd just smoked some of the world's best pot!
Turns out it wasn't that good after all.
With a humble salute to the mighty powers of "The King":
Behold the trillion buck round
Its value is perfectly sound
E pluribus foolin'
Will keep the plebs droolin'
Until a solution is found
quod meum mihi, quae tua mea.
Should have a bucket with no bottom.
Timmay's personae was a bit truncated
His stature being somewaht deflated
Tried as he might
To put up a fight
The air that he breathed had been wasted

Miss the old Vietnam Military script that was improved upon with speak bubbles and legends in ball point pen, such as: "I love you, no shit. Buy me Honda." "You can count my body twice." "She plenty good, she virgin." And the quote from Pyrrus of Epirus that Mr. Bonzai recently used: "Another such victory and I am undone."
hey joe, you cherry?
Yeah. Do you remember how creepy the engravings were with Edwardian, Gibson Girl women and disturbing 19th century framing of 20th century weaponry and uniforms; and that head-on face of the Statue of Liberty? They were like 19th century American Bank Note Co. plates with subs, jets and Sandra Dee.
