Federation Credit

In these ever tougher economic times, we hear lots of talk about how there are no real jobs, how its hard to make real money, whether we can expect a rise in real incomes and so on. Well, here’s a look at money that doesn’t even pretend to be real.

In the Star Trek universe, Federation credits are mentioned a few times as a unit of currency, but never actually seen. Sometimes it’s inferred that money itself is no longer used in the bright future overseen by the United Federation of Planets. On other occasions, some goods and services are said to cost a certain number of credits, while some alien planets seem to have their own monetary systems. Here’s an artist impression of what Federation currency might look like.

Berlin | Hub of the Numismatic World for a Weekend

leave a comment »

This weekend it will be all about numismatics in Berlin. Rightfully called “THE” numismatic event of the year is upon us.  The World Money Fair 2012.  Previous shows have brought 15,000 visitors to this historically rich fair.  There is a little bit of everything from “Professional exchange with mints, national banks, technical suppliers or coin dealers. An unrivaled assortment from classical through modern numismatics, including medals, tokens, historic bank notes, and stocks and bonds.”  As a numismatist and collector I am truly envious of all attendees.  I hope with some strategic planning I will be able to make next years show!  Check out the schedule below for event details.
