You completely missed the

You completely missed the point. The article is saying that the government can assign any value to a platinum coin. They can make a single one ounce platinum coin and stamp whatever value they want on it. That's the beauty of it. You call it a $16 trillion dollar coin and give it the FED and cancel their charter. Government debt is now paid and the FED is left being the ones that are screwed as a single one ounce platinum coin is obviously nowhere near worth $16 trillion. Payback's a b1tch.
