Never mind heads or tails. When you flip this coin, it comes up ass on both sides.

Do you think we will all get one? After all, if he keeps it up, it won't be worth much more than 23¢.

I propose a new inscription to replace the Latin one:
فمن السهل أن تأخذ المال من السفهاء
Translated: "It is easy to take the money of fools" (i.e., "Fools and their money are soon parted").
Mmmm mmmm mmmm...

I like the concept, John.
Now we need the Krugman virtual $1 billion coin - by virtual, it's there but there's nothing backing it's value. Make it out of plastic.
And I can't wait for the "Bernanke buck".
BTW, I looked in my seat cushions and the only coin I found was a 1970s Fargo ND bus token.
Which in the future may be worth more than the $1T Obamanation_coin (tm)
A riff on Ed B -
When you flip this coin, regardless which side is up, the taxpayer always loses.
Maybe the inscription should be in Chinese?
Back before the Federal Reserve, banks issued their own notes. I have one from the Bank of Pensacola.
So what will happen when the dollar goes kaput? Maybe banks will issue their own coins. Imagine...
I bought lunch with a Citibank 10 Citi coin, otherwise it would have cost $50,000 USD.
Coming soon to a Banana republic near you.
