These silver coins held their value for 100 years.

A silver Dollar buys over 15 Fiat Dollars, melt value.

Free includes debt-free!

we may get to not need currency, hopefully

but there is always a need for money. what's the alternative? barter? that is why money was created in the first place.

you have a service I need, but you don't want what I have to give you, so we have to find a third party (or more) to make the transaction. Yuk! Money (meaning real money, gold and silver) solved this nonsense.

Here' one way. Peter Schiff explains.

Paperweights?

Since the society would be cashless, right?

There is a lot of Medicinal properties of Gold and Silver that could be further implemented as well as gold being used in new energy and propulsion technology. Sleeping quarters could be lined with Gold to keep environmental "energy" pollution, ei. Smart Meter pulses, WiFi, communications, other micro waves bombarding us on a daily basis.

For some reason,

I believe that once they have depleted those with frn's in exchange for gold/silver, a technological advancement/replacement will be utilized in manufacturing.

Like 3D printing?

Possibly,

but more along the lines of high-tech composites/alloys.

Nice

:-)

Think of the applications! lol

A true cashless society would

A true cashless society would be without cash ie,paper currency.
Gold,silver and other tangibles are not cash they are money.
There will always be a need for money.

Not always.

I've exchanged my design services for the services of others without any need for money. Also, the less the government "does for us" the more we could do for ourselves like grow our own food or our medicines (Marijuana). 3D printers will eliminate many aspects of industrial production. China won't be the economic superpower everyone thinks they'll be as most of the little Chinese-made BS will be printable right in your home rather than outsourced for cheap labour.

And as a result in this Paradigm Shift in our history, people become less and less "in need" of material possessions. Priorities and Wants will change too.

Until molecular

Until molecular manufacturing, aka nanoscale fabrication, is commonplace so-called 3-D printing is an interim step. Complex electronics are impossible and things with mixed metals and plastics are not possible without assembly. I'm not sure it will ever be possible to print out a functioning cell phone or car with glass metal and plastic.

True.

There will still be components that will need to be manufactured with conventional processes but I think at least 60%-70% of a vehicle could be "printed" within the next 10 years.

Any time there is something on the horizon, who's impact no one can really anticipate, I get really excited to realize we are living in historic times no one has ever lived before!

Once nanoscale assemblers

Once nanoscale assemblers have been perfected, ours will be a world we will no longer recognize.

When I lived in CO my buddy

When I lived in CO my buddy used to pay to park at Vail with weed. Worked every time lol

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Hey, money doesn't grow on trees, y'know!

(shhhhh, just go with it)

In that situation

your design services(your labor and time)is a form of money.(not cash)There will always be a need for a medium of exchange but what that will be should be up to the free market.(voluntary exchange between people)
True there will be "less need" of material possessions but where there is need there will always be a medium of exchange whatever that may be.

And what if that "medium of exchange" is Happiness?

When I provided my services, and still do, I do it for the joy of providing something for someone. I love what I do so I hardly "labour" over my work and the time is always the Present moment. If I am enjoying what I am doing then time seems to stand still. Perhaps the education system needs to re-prioritize and cultivate life's passions rather than condition the youth to be a cog in the wheel?

What if looking into another human being's eyes and feeling a connection of appreciation and gratitude was "money" enough? What if personal success is measured by the amount of happiness one has in their life?

Perhaps not as easy to imagine quite yet, prior to shedding centuries of conditioning us all into a competitive "survival of the fittest" pro-greed society, but I think we're seeing the beginning stages of these ideas.

I'm not sure why

this received a down vote, I think it's a fair question. I too am interested in the possible answers as we all should be if we want knowledge for surviving the future.

I Don't Think There Ever Will Be A Pure Cashless Society.

Trade at the lowest level {producers} will always accept the most valuable, to them, form of money, and for thousands of years, already, Gold/Silver have evolved into the worldwide preferred form of money.

beesting

It's value would be

It's value would be unrecognizable, people would kill over it.

Southern Agrarian

It will be outlawed.

You'll be labelled a hoarder at best, enemy of the people at worst. It will be used for barter, but people will be incentivized by the government to turn you in for a week's rations card.

The majority

are those who support a socialist society. Welfare, food stamps, the many government programs. They exceed credit, forfeit, declare bankruptcy and start all over again. The cycle continues because government encourages and thrives on this behavior. Central banks are complicit, too big to fail.

This trend has been happening for ages, and will continue for the foreseeable future and beyond, certainly beyond our lifetimes.

With rfid soon to be mandated and accepted by millions of voters, the few who work and produce, and those who may invest in pm's will be outnumbered, and expected to support the majority.

I see no benefit to PM's in this day and age, as far as actual investing. It is another bone to chew while tptb accumulate land wealth and ultimate power. MIC will ensure its success. For those who do not comply, repercussion will result.

Gold and Silver is not Cash

I consider those RFID chips the mark of the beast.

The medium of exchange is whatever the market decides the medium of exchange is.

"Through the roof" would be

"Through the roof" would be my guess... The more oppression that comes out of Washington the larger the percentage of the economy will go underground. They might think eliminating cash will slow this but they will be wrong again. Why?, because the market will respond.

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

I don't know....

But the bigger question would be, what should be the median of exchange in a cashless society? A digital currency like BitCoin? A nano encrypted RFID microchip that holds a cold storage BitCoin Wallet implanted in a body part to buy and sell seems like a safe way to transact. My guess would be that gold and silver will be too expensive to buy from the poor to the middle class, and what little they have they will sell or barter to survive by that timeline. When the New Order is in place, there will only be poor class and upper class nothing in-between.
