RUSSIAN President Dmitry Medvedev and other world leaders were presented gold ‘World Currency’ coin at this week’s G8 summit in L’Aquila, Italy.
“In all likelihood something similar could appear and it could be held in your hand and used as a means of payment,” he told reporters. “This is the international currency.”
The gold coin is the brainchild of The United Future World Currency Project. According to the organization’s website:
The world in a coin. This is our vision, our hope. It is a necessity and a challenge. What seems an impossible dream becomes an inevitable historic, economic and social process. It is an event which is intertwined with the fate of human evolution.
A single currency becomes the premise for an increasingly global planet. A virtual currency capable of speaking a single, comprehensible language to foster humankind’s innate desire to go farther, to surpass boundaries, and move towards true principles of peace, freedom, brotherhood and understanding beyond issues of race, political and religious beliefs and party interests.
We are presenting the peoples of nations, governments, institutions, intellectuals, ordinary people, pragmatists and idealists, scholars and, above all, young people – the real protagonists of the future – with a simple, ingenuous yet determined long-term vision for building an ideal bridge with tomorrow and interpreting a dream to transform into reality.
In this program, currency yet again assumes the principle goal which it has had since its invention centuries ago: to facilitate and codify human commercial and social exchange. And become a form of pure “communication” between different peoples – a communication of ideas, ideals, information and culture. This constitutes progress, development and well being.
The coin in its current form (as given to Medvedev and the other leaders, including President Obama, looks like this:
Since early in the year, China, Russia, and now France have called for a new world currency. Does this mean you and I would carry these gold coins in our pockets? Probably not. More than likely, our bank accounts would be pegged to this standard, and all transactions would occur in virtual ‘Unis’ or whatever the coin is eventually called.
The final world before Christ’s return is a united one–united in economics and in government. This little gold coin is a major step toward the journey’s end.
