    I think the law that enables this strictly covers platinum coins to appeal to the collectors' market. And nothing says they have to think small.

    Doubloons are gold right? Sorry I missed that parade.

      ... (remember - drunk people on floats throwing objects to drunk people below them).  They are made in many colors which supposedly gives them an inherent value (fewer gold ones than silver ones fewer purple ones than gold ones, no one has thrown one made of platinum that I am aware of) - which leads to Mardi Gras rule number one: NEVER go for a doubloon on the ground with your hand first, always cover it with your foot because the inebriated college girl standing next to you is always wearing stilettos!

      I haven't been here long enough to be considered a Kossack, does that mean that I'm just a sack?
