One of the things I have always wondered about in T2K is "why would gold become the common currency?"

I can understand if a particular government came out and started to issue coins a la D&D, but in a post-apocalyptic world AU won't have an intrinsic value. No one will be able to go to the bank and trade it in for currency.

I can understand a barter system citing a value in dollars, Euros, credits, etc. - 20 rounds of 9mm = $5 = a carton of Marlboros (a completely made up example - don't holler at me for values). I just don't know if I think it is right to go with GP as a currency.

Thoughts?

Dave
