Want to start a community currency by "just doing it?" As more and more of us buy silver and gold coins, there are increasing opportunities to use our coins to transact.

Whenever I travel, I bring back coins from around the world to give to the children and young people in my life. I am hoping to interest them in far away places and the role of currency in networking us together. For Christmas and birthdays, I also give them gold and silver coins. Increasingly, I wanted a tool that would make translating between US dollars and precious metal coins effortless.

One day I was talking with Franklin Sanders about how to make this easy for me. He said that he thought there were many folks who would transact with gold and silver coins if they had a simple calculator. So we decided to build a web site to provide one -- We called it that because, in fact, silver and gold are money. If we use our coins to transact in our daily lives, then the value of the currency in our pockets is going up rather than going down like the US dollar.

I will be interviewed with Franklin Sanders on Monday, May 14 by Chris G. Waltzek on the Goldseek Radio Show. The show will be archived here: Franklin and I will be discussing our new calculator at and why we believe our calculator could help protect Main Street from Wall Street.
