Make Way for the Amero

Snopes.com, the Urban Legend Reference site, today addressed the rumor that the United States will soon replace its currency with the Amero. This new currency would combine the Canadian and United States Dollars with the Mexican Peso to create a single economic union, not unlike the European Community's Euro.

While Cartophilia does not wish to feed the paranoid fears of the wing-nuts, we will heartily endorse this new currency, as long as it includes a map! Daniel Carr of DC-Coin and the Moonlight Mint has created a collectible fantasy Amero coin that does just that:





It is rumored that the postage stamps of this new economic union will feature black helicopters...

Looks like the Amero is valid all the way down to Panama, judging from the map.

I'm in, if it does away with pennies.

That would be the sexiest coin ever.
