    Default $ A Dollar Sign

    The US. Dollar is constitutionally defined as a unit that contains 371.25 grains (0.7734375 troy ounces) of silver.
    The Federal Reserve's Note is a counterfeit US Dollar, and it is defined by bankster whims, currently compared against other fiat.
    If you have a bank savings account, stocks sans certificates, various bonds, annuity, money market or retirement account...
    should you be storing your wealth in those places, the value could plunge.

    The original dollar sign symbol was created by combining the number 1 with a S for silver for a reason....
    STABILITY.




    In my opinion the money masters don't want us to have stability, for it gives us too much power.

    Cool Yes the Russians did it too, and I'm detecting a repeating theme.



    According to one version, the word "ruble" is derived from the Russian verb рубить (rubit), "to cut, to chop, to hack", as a ruble was considered a cutout piece of a silver grivna.

    Rubles were parts of the grivna or pieces of silver with notches indicating their weight. Each grivna was divided into four parts; the name "ruble" came from the word "cut" because the silver rod weighing 1 grivna was split into four parts, which were called rubles.

    Others say the ruble was never part of a grivna but a synonym for it. This is attested in a 13th century Novgorod birch bark manuscript, where both ruble and grivna referred to 204 gramms (6.6 troy ounces) of silver. The casting of these pieces included some sort of cutting (the exact technology is unknown), hence the name from рубить (rubit).


    Money is necessary for human society to exist.
    It was too bad that our parent's parent's parents were deceived by such clever and evil parasites, otherwise this country would be a grand place.
    Instead due to the central bank infestation, where the banksters skim a 4.01% cut from every bankcard and food stamp transaction, we have California spreading across the land.

    Wink Silver never goes up or down.

    I forgot to mention the repeating theme.

    We already know that the fiat dollar is a declining fraction of its original (0.773 ozt) silver value.

    The information in the post above indicates that about 800 years ago a ruble was about 6.6 troy ounces of silver.

    Sep 11, 9:11 PM UTC 1 Russian Ruble = 0.015 Federal Reserve Note

    Working that 1.5 cents out to grams of silver. (silver @ $0.58488746 per gram)

    $0.015/$0.58488746 = 0.025645959

    Today's fiat ruble is worth approximately 1/40 of a gram of silver. No wonder the "dollar" looks so strong.
    6.6 x 31.1 x 40 = 8210
    Today's fiat ruble's worth is about one eight thousandth of what one from 800 years ago had.

    The country's founders were extremely intelligent and knew from human history that that once a currency is un-backed by precious metals, it ALWAYS goes to hell.
    They worked hard to prevent that from happening to the republic.
    About 116 years ago the ball was dropped.
    Do we have the guts and brains to pick it up?
    Will we?

    Question £ Why a crossed L?



    The pound sterling (symbol: £; ISO code: GBP), commonly known as the pound and less commonly referred to as sterling, is the official currency of the United Kingdom and its territories.

    The Oxford English Dictionary (and sources derived therefrom) state that the "most plausible" etymology is derivation from the Old English steorra for "star" with the added diminutive suffix "-ling", to mean "little star" and to refer to a silver penny of the English Normans.

    These silver coins known as "sterlings" were issued in the Saxon kingdoms, 240 of them being minted from a pound of silver... Hence, large payments came to be reckoned in "pounds of sterlings," a phrase later shortened... —Encyclopædia Britannica, entry "pound sterling"

    The pound was a unit of account in Anglo-Saxon England, equal to 240 silver pennies and equivalent to one pound weight of silver. It evolved into the modern British currency, the pound sterling. In the reign of Henry IV (1399–1413), the penny was reduced in weight to 15 grains (0.97 g) of silver, with a further reduction to 12 grains (0.78 g) in 1464.



    Norman silver pennies changed designs every three years.
    This two-star design (possible origin of the word "sterling"), issued by William the Conqueror, is from 1077–1080.


    So the pound was once exactly that, 454 grams of silver.
    Current silver spot at kitco is $18.05 for 31.1 grams.
    In FRNs the original British pound is worth about 264 Federal Reserve Notes, however the fiat British Pound trades for $1.24.
    Because the word sterling was a synonym for silver, I can see why the British have dropped the word from the name of their currency.

    L stands for "libra" which is the Latin word for pound in terms of weight (lb). When a word was abbreviated, medieval scribes would often note an abbreviation by putting a line through a letter.

    Wink Real Money


    The first real was introduced by King Pedro I of Castile in the mid 14th century
    , with 66 minted from a Castilian mark of silver (230.0465 grams), fineness ​134⁄144 or 0.9306, and valued of 3 maravedíes. It co-circulated with various other silver coins until a 1497 ordinance eliminated all other coins and retained the real (now minted 67 to a mark of silver, 0.9306 fine, fine silver 3.195 grams) subdivided into 34 maravedíes.

    The silver real was minted in ​1⁄2-, 1-, 2-, 4- and 8-real denominations. After the discovery of silver in Mexico, Peru and Bolivia in the 16th century, the 8-real coin (referred to since then as a dollar, a peso or a piece of eight) became an internationally recognized trade coin in Europe, Asia and North America.


    The Spanish 8 real coin is the direct ancestor of the U.S. Dollar and was the main coin used in America until the U.S. Mint took over.

    peso noun
    pe·​so | \ ˈpā-(ˌ)sō, ˈpe-\
    plural pesos
    Definition of peso

    1 an old silver coin of Spain and Spanish America equal to eight reales
    2 the basic monetary unit of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Phlippines, and Uruguay

    First Known Use of peso: 1555, in the meaning defined at sense 1


    So it seems that the peso is the father of the dollar, and like all real money was once silver.

    Lightbulb The basis of money.

    from Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia entry : yen

    n yen A name given by the Indians about the Klamath Lakes of Oregon to the short-nosed sucker, Chasmistes brevirostris.
    yen A dialectal form of yon.
    n yen A variant of eyen, plural of eye.
    n yen The monetary unit of Japan since 1871, represented
    n yen by a gold coin weighing 1.666 grams, .900 fine, and thus practically equal in value to the United States gold dollar; and.
    n yen by a silver coin weighing 26.956 grams (416 grains), .900 fine, and thus about equal to the silver dollar of the United States. The yen is divided into hundredths called sen, and into mills called rin. One., two-five-, ten-, and twenty-yen pieces are coined, and the fractional silver currency consists of five-, ten-, twenty-, and fifty-sen pieces. See cut on following page.


    Two notes.
    ▷ The weight of a silver yen is about 16 times that of a golden yen is not a coincidence. 26.956 ÷ 1.666 = 16.180072029
    ▷ The dictionary entry quoted above neglected to list 'desire' among the definitions. As in having a yen for sake.

    The following information was taken from Wikipedia


    Lira (plural lire) is the name of several currency units. It is the current currency of Turkey and also the local name of the currencies of Lebanon and Syria. It is the former currency of Italy, Malta, San Marino and the Vatican City, all of which were replaced in 2002 with the euro, and of Israel, which replaced it with the old shekel in 1980. The term originates from the value of a troy pound (Latin libra) of high purity silver. The libra was the basis of the monetary system of the Roman Empire. When Europe resumed a monetary system, during the Carolingian Empire, the Roman system was adopted, the so-called £sd (librae, solidi, denarii).

    It seems that most all of the names for the currencies are based on the local word for silver.
    And going back further...
