Coin, Coin, Gone

I saw an item in Newsday today about a new coin unveiled at a UFO conference in Bulgaria recently. Minted by a Bulgarian foundation on cosmic intelligence research, the coin, the Galactos, is intended to be the official currency for trade between planets.

File under: Cart before horse? We've yet to even discover life -- sentient life -- on other planets, yet we already fully intend to do business with them. As soon as possible. What if the new societies we encounter don't understand concepts such as explicit value exchange, much less money? Go, market economy, go!
