If someone makes a "counterfeit" bill, they claim more gold in that treasury than they truly have, i.e. stealing. Turning gold into gold would just be changing an objects shape, and making it into a workable form.

    Fomors created alchemy. Far more advance than anything the Tuathas and Millitians created.

    DevCat should also make it so that you can use metal conversion to make mythril coins which would be worth twice as much as a gold coin thus allowing for more efficient money storage.
    You could buy the ingots/plates/ores with gold, and pretend the gold you spent was simply melted into it... :D

    But yeah, I understand what you're saying.

    I don't know about other countries, but America was off the gold standard a while ago and now runs on fiat money (not backed by precious metals).

    Ish because we're in debt. :L

    And the alchemy thing kinda proves how they got gold coins in the first place... Why can't we do that yet?
