    I was looking at some Canadian gold coins and have noticed something peculiar:
    1/4oz gold coin has the denomination of $10.00
    1/2oz gold coin has the denomination of $20.00
    but the 1oz gold coin is $50.00 :huh::huh::huh:


    So, using Canadian math:
    2x10=20
    4x10=50
    2x20=50

    The coin system was purposefully designed to be confusing, actually I think we in the U.S. have similarly odd pricing.
    Not that anyone with half a brain would use these gold coins for their legal tender value.

    1/4 oz of gold is worth around $500 right now, who would use that to pay a $10 debt?
