"turn to gold"
Yeah FOR THE KING'S RANSOM!!!!
For the COMMON EVERYDAY PERSON, gold is TOO FRAGILE.
The amount of gold necessary to purchase a meal or a pair of shoes is TINY TINY TINY
Do you REALLY ASSERT that ancient merchants pulled out their triple-beam balances when someone purchased some fresh fruit at the market?
The REAL currency is SPICES and FURS. MORE wars have been fought over SPICES and FURS than gold.
The easy way out
