Will We Ever Have a $1 Trillion Platinum Coin?


When President Obama and Congress were thinking about how to deal with the $16.4-trillion debt ceiling, there was talk of the Treasury minting a $1 trillion platinum coin. Some people even joked we should have a quadrillion-dollar coin. While these solutions have not been taken seriously, I’m wondering if currency like this would ever be necessary or even possible?
