So what happens when they actually mint the damned thing and post pictures on the news site and some creative individual with a milling machine and small bar of platinum load the image into a 3-D model and “mint” the damned thing then sell it to a country that hates us and that country takes it and demands payment in full?

Or china makes duplicate coinage?

Wouldn’t be the first time china has made fake coins... That we know of....

This idea is dumb dumb dumb....

To actually be any value the coin itself would need be made up of 90 cubic METERS of platinum!

So ball park estimate that is enough platinum to fill a decent sized football stadium up like a giant bowl of platinum soup or a coin the size of most large metro areas!!!!

That is if you wanted to stay honest about the amount of platinum in the coin ACTUALLY representing the VALUE of the coin!

Anything else is a complete debasement of the currency and will lead to hyper inflation...

Yes, exactly. There is NO relationship between the value of the metal and the value they are talking about “deeming” it to have.
