Conservative radio talk show ("shout show" actually) host Hal turner claims to have caught the feds red-handed. He has, in his hands, samples of the "Amero" coins of the upcoming North American Union. http://www.halturnershow.com/AmeroCoinArrives.html Even though the coins are minted by a private commemorative and parody coin artist, Andy Carr. http://www.dc-coin.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=8 It never occurred to Hal that such huge copper coinage would not be used by any public, ever. Imagine a pocket full of those things!
