* Do you know what The Word Fungible Means?
* The Goldback® is the world’s first physical, interchangeable, gold money, that is designed to accommodate even small transactions.
* “The Goldback solves a 2,600 year old problem in that gold can be spent in small, interchangeable increments.” – DR. Mark Voelker, UPMA Board Member.
