A currency story about the Atlantean Alliance Pound

by Duane K. McCullough

What if currency was based on a redeemable nutrional food unit?

The above image is an example of a currency note from what would have represented a value of ten pounds of cacao beans from the Atlantean Alliance government in ancient times.

The reason why this currency is linked to the value of cacao beans is because cacao beans -- also known as "cocoa" after dried and husked, are a valuable renewable food source that can be "cashed in" or eaten by any citizen when necessary.

Because early natives of both the Caribbean and Mediterranean realms once used nutritional beans as "valuable units of trade" -- such as cacao and carob beans, imagine if our Atlantean ancestors once created a verifiable paper currency and based it on a simple and useful eatable energy source.

Any person or group possessing these "cocoa certificates" could trade them in anytime at a local certified "food bank" and get most all the nutrients they would ever need to survive for months because cocoa is balance with important elements like potassium, phosphorus and calcium -- that when mixed with water and some sugar, provides survival energy.

Native to the Atlantean continent of the New World, cacao beans are the reason why the Caribbean Sea was named by early European explorers because the native peoples of the area used what the explorers believed were carob beans as trade units -- but were in fact, not carob beans from the Mediterranean, but were cacao beans from the New World.

Cocoa contains the stimulant caffine whereas carob does not -- and may have been one of the "spices" that inspirered Columbus to take his famous westward short-cut to the west Indies where places like "Cathay" and "Java" were known to exist.

Cocoa also contains the alkaloid Theobromine -- also known as "god's food", and was once the main ingredient in the primary chocolate beverage drink of the Aztec leader Montezuma.

Moreover, it's interesting to note that because the current price of cocoa is valued at just above $2,200 US per metric ton -- or about one US dollar per pound, perhaps this valuable commodity would today be more useful than other materials of value like -- say gold, as a price point.

So, because the currency value of cocoa has not changed much since ancient times, perhaps the currency of the US Dollar and the British Pound of the United Kingdom could be limited to the unlimited production value of cocoa.

It would be made proper that if the value of cocoa was to be a price point for today's paper currency, sustainable farming practices should be implimented so as not to damage the environment by those who would want to "grow money on trees".
