    Medvedev Shows Off Sample Coin of New ‘World Currency’ at G-8

    By Lyubov Pronina

    July 10 (Bloomberg) -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev illustrated his call for a supranational currency to replace the dollar by pulling from his pocket a sample coin of a “united future world currency.”

    “Here it is,” Medvedev told reporters today in L’Aquila, Italy, after a summit of the Group of Eight nations. “You can see it and touch it.”

    The coin, which bears the words “unity in diversity,” was minted in Belgium and presented to the heads of G-8 delegations, Medvedev said.

    The question of a supranational currency “concerns everyone now, even the mints,” Medvedev said. The test coin “means they’re getting ready. I think it’s a good sign that we understand how interdependent we are.”

    Medvedev has repeatedly called for creating a mix of regional reserve currencies as part of the drive to address the global financial crisis, while questioning the U.S. dollar’s future as a global reserve currency. Russia’s proposals for the G-20 meeting in London in April included the creation of a supranational currency.

    Post stolen from another forum that I frequent. To say the least, I'm not much of a religious fellow, but I've seen a few documentaries so I couldn't help but at the similarities between the two pics there.

    Anyways, discuss.

    I look at that image and see a plant in a pot or maybe flowers in a vase. Someone else looks at it and sees a goat's head in a pentagram. I wonder what Dr. Rorschach would say about us. Methinks I'm the healthy one.

    LOL.

    Yeah, that'll ever happen. No-one would want to share the same currency with the US, the most counterfeited currency of all time. We would actually be making money on the deal I think.

    I think the new world coin is being compared to that satanic one because of this conspiracy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Wor...spiracy_theory)

    Basically in the conspiracy theory, the government becomes like the one in the book 1984.

    I guess I see the similarities...but if the pentagram was never mentioned, I'd never see it, lol. It just looks like a plant/tree with diverse leaves to go along with "Unity in Diversity."

    Of course (if you've read the Divinci Code) you know the pentagram isnt even a legit satanic symbol anyway!
    its actually early Christian!
    but the church later demonized the symbol and said it was satanic..to discredit the "original" church which threatened their power..

    (since we are on the topic of ridiculous theorys..I thought I throw that one in just for fun!)

    I like the coin design!
    its looks nice..
    I agree it will never happen..
    still, the coin looks good..but seeing the pentagram in it is REALLY a stretch..

    the upside down pentagram has only been connected to Satan in the last 100 years or so.....in the middle ages a right side up pentagram symbolized summer....the upside down pentagram meant winter......kinda like the swastika.....its an old native american symbol as well as being present in many cultures going back atleast as far as 3,000 years ago.....its only when the Nazi's adopted in the first part of the 20th century it that it had negative connotations.....
