Comment: Article 1 Section 10

(See in situ)


Article 1 Section 10

"No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility."

Am I getting something wrong here, or is Gold and Silver already Legal Tender? In fact, each State appears to be prohibited from using anything but Gold and Silver as Legal Tender.
