    I wouldn’t take these phony money things. If they were gold or silver coins, then it would be different. At least they’d be worth the metal.

    Assuming you could be sure of the weight and metal content. Unlike any nation’s gold/silver coins, you can know the specs of them.

    I believe that at the time of the Civil War, the US did not have a standard currency… railroads and various companies issued their own paper money.
    Hate to think what the exchange rates were.

    They’re value would generally depend on proximity to their source.

    Their coins will be made of aluminum with holes in the center so that you can run a string thru them. Their denominations will be 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, 50 cents, 1 dollar and 2 dollars.

    Would Texas Aggie bills then look just like Civil War Confederate Bills, and eventually be worth just as much?

    And I bet you can use the “Aggies” to buy houses on Boardwalk, and Park Place, too!
    Not to mention Marvin Gardens.

    Sounds like the “Aggies” have as much backing as the USD. “Don’t worry, we’ll never default… we’ll just print more of them!”

    The one time I drove through a portion of Texas – in the middle of the desert – I got stopped and asked to see my passport.

    “Aggie’s” = Ag, as sin they’re pure silver bullion. Now, are you sure you really wanted that in US Dollars, pure paper pulp with one strip of plastic and alittle ink to decorate it?

    Or do you want to be paid in “Austin’s” (Au) or better known as the larger Republic of Texas Gold based coins . . . either or, they still spend better than the pulp paper the US Federal Reserve is pumping out by the bale.

    Do Aggies still have the stereotype of being dumb? NO, pardon me, I mean DUMB!

    I’d have thought their basic unit of currency would be the Landry, and the smaller unit would be the yard.

    But before Texas has a smidgen of a chance of seceding they must pay back the US govt for so many things like the electrical grid, any bases left, weapons, subsidies etc.
