In order to (temporarily) stop the entire United States of America from going over the fiscal cliff, the US equivalent of our Royal Mint is going to strike one, single coin with the value of $1 Trillion.
That's 1000 billion dollars - in one, small coin.
Someone will then take it to an institution somewhere and drop it in a piggy bank, thereby fulfilling America's commitment to pay off a percentage of the National Debt by a certain time scale.
Now what I am wondering is, will they save a bit of money by not transporting it in an armoured vehicle surrounded by armed outriders at night, and just send the boy down to the bank with it in his pocket on his own?
Even if you knew what this boy was carrying, what good would it do to rob him?
You could try going into Starbucks, ordering a coffee and handing it over, but I don't think they would have enough of a float to give you the change, and might get suspicious if you accepted a few thousand dollars instead.
I wonder of they are going to mint a few more for collectors?
