It is ironic

In Chinese, we can refer to the US Dollars in two way, "Mei Yuan" = "American Yuan" or "Mei Jin 美金" = "American Gold". Even till now, we still talk in such a way when we refer to price in US Dollars. I guess it was such an ingrained idea from years ago, that US Dollar is as good as gold. Also, we don't refer to any other currency using "gold".
