I draw a line between the

I draw a line between the terms currency (monetized bank notes), and money. As for whether the money should come from the market or the state, I'm not sure yet.

I suppose it could be a hybrid system, where the state has a standard coinage system, consisting of weights and designs, that any private mint could emulate. This would keep the coinage consistent.

I prefer the old Greek system, where when money was brought into a city, it had to be melted down and minted in the coinage of that city to be spent there, with the city taking a tiny % fee in the process. For the US, this could occur when the money reaches the country.
