Coin Exports and a 'Domestic Dollar'?

The constitution says: To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

Could this grant authority to make the Silver Eagle a 'domestic dollar'? There are already limits to the number of coins which can be exported. This prevented the penny, nickle, etc., from being exported for there melt value. I think it was something like 10,000 of each coin. Could the same be applied to forclose export of Eagles, and these would then be restricted to domestic exchanges only? A first step toward exchange validity within the 50 states?

Or see the Ziegfeld Follies w/ Glinda the "Good Witch of the West" "Come spy with me."

After Ziegfeld's death in 1932, his then wife Billie Burke, best known for her portrayal of Glinda in the Wizard of Oz, was consumed by the debt he left behind. In an effort to settle her money troubles she turned towards acting and authorizing the use of the name Ziegfeld Follies.

A Silver Eagle is legal

A Silver Eagle is legal tender as $1. Why one would spend it as $1, I don't know.

for 97% (gold and silver) cash discount?

Discounting is a standard business practice which takes many forms. Taxes are assessed on discounted receipts at face value and can be resolved with Legal Tender scrip, tokens, and digits.

Discounting is an acceptable business practice.

ANY business can offer ANY discount for ANY reason. Whether honoring coupons in the local paper, customers parroting "the phrase that pays", or because you are married to the owner's sister. The owner decides who pays what and when.

Suppose, for example, that you are buying a half gallon of milk from your local QuikkStopp and the price quoted is two and a half Federal Reserve Digits ($2.50). Suppose further that the proprietor has posted a sign along the lines of "Ask about our 96% GOLD and SILVER cash discount." For that 2.50FRD half gallon, you offer a silver dime (minted prior to 1965). Taxes are assessed at the DISCOUNTED price, so they are applied in this case against Ten Cents United States Legal Tender (USLT). Keep supposing that this is a simple example and the sales' tax assessed is ten per cent. The clerk collects your silver dime, plus a one cent zinc token (also USLT) with which he can resolve his statutory liability to the state, county, or other organized band of armed parasites.

Carry silver at all times, and make a habit of offering it in trade after enquiring after any discounts that the owner or manager might wish to offer.

um... see above

Could you be more specific, please? Is it the vocabulary, the syntax, or the arithmetic that puzzles you?

I may have made a mistake in taking your first enquiry seriously. This isn't a Chapelle kind of lampoon is it?
