Talk:International dollar | numismatics?

Numismatics?

Why {{Numismaticnotice}} at the top of this talk page? I thought that numismatics dealt only with artifacts, such as coins, notes, stock certaficates, etc., whereas the "international dollar" is an abstraction. -- Jmabel | Talk 01:47, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply. I just noticed this comment. You can see numismatics for a definition, but the short answer is that numismatics is the study of currency. This is a theoretical currency, and thus worthy of numismatic study. Ingrid 00:59, 11 January 2006 (UTC)


Geary-Khamis dollar is the proper term for a purchasing power parity or international dollar. I would shift the text of international dollar to Geary-Khamis. Rtol (talk) 19:39, 22 January 2008 (UTC) (a professor of economics)
