Before the technological/digital revolution, beginning in the sixties, it was common for governments to use silver as a component in the nations coinage – silver makes particularly beautiful monetary tokens and there wasn’t a lot of other uses for the huge surplus of this fairly common element. Following the technological revolution silver was increasingly needed as an input in all the modern gadgets that the revolution has delivered – because of this governments wisely decided to discontinue using silver in coinage.
Because of this cultural heritage it became common for normal people to hold on to one or two of these silver coins as a keepsake of a less enlightened era. The alt-right have stupidly twisted this and have begun to hoard these old coins in the mistaken belief that silver somehow has special magical monetary properties over and above other forms of money tokens. Because of their moronic selfishness a market for old coins has grown out of all proportion.
The Accredited Times has received credible information that Putin’s Russia is more than happy to satisfy this market by flooding the West with high quality fake Morgan dollars manufactured out of copper and nickle. Due to the average alt-right hoarder being of sub-par intelligence the Russians have been able to sell a huge number of these fakes to these selfish useful idiots.
If it was only the silly alt-right weirdos losing out there would be no problem – but unfortunately because of Putin’s extreme aggressiveness we are in a near state of war with Russia and cannot afford for them to steal any more wealth from us by tricking the most gullible.
Although many normal people like to keep a coin or two as a nostalgic trinket – we must do what is best, in the national interest, and shut down the entire silver coin market before the alt-right useful idiots send more of our nation’s money to Putin.
