article imageRussian President Wants One-World Currency in the Future

By Andrew Moran     Jul 12, 2009 in World
President Dmitri Medvedev showed reporters a coin that plagued the words "United Future World Currency" to show support for a possible one-world currency in the future.
Russian President Dmitri Medvedev displayed a coin at the G8 Summit in Italy bearing the words “United Future World Currency.” The coin was shown to journalists after the summit concluded however; it did not gain much attention or traction but it did show optimism to the Russian leader that one day it could happen.
“In all likelihood something similar could appear and it could be held in your hand and used as a means of payment. This is the international currency,” Mr. Medvedev told reporters. Russia and China have been proponents for a new one-world currency and to dump the U.S. dollar.
Much of the G8 leaders agreed that United States dollar should be dumped and a new world currency should be agreed upon. French President Nicolas Sarkozy said, “We cannot stick with just one single currency.”
