Section 5112 of Title 31 of the United States Code provides that the Secretary of the Treasury may mint and issue platinum coins "in accordance with such specifications, designs, varieties, quantities, denominations, and inscriptions as the Secretary, in the Secretary’s discretion, may prescribe from time to time."
If Ron Paul is elected to the office of President of the United States he should appoint a Treasury Secretary who will mint and issue $20 platinum coins and $100 platinum coins. Each $20 coin might contain platinum that has a market value of about $20, together with enough titanium to make a coin that is a little larger than the current 50 cent coin. Each $100 coin might contain platinum that has a market value of about $100, together with enough titanium to make a coin that is a little smaller than the Eisenhower dollar coin.
President Paul might order that all federal employees shall be paid with those platinum coins. The coins would begin to circulate and displace the Federal Reserve Notes that are being fraudulently issued by the Federal Reserve Banks.
