Media analyst, author and activist Mark Dice pulled through a Taco Bell, attempting to pay for one $.99 taco with an American Eagle 1 ounce gold coin. The employee refused, preferring payment with two Federal Reserve notes instead, commenting that the coin was ‘for collecting.’ The spot price for 1 oz. of gold is at $1428 today, so the worker passed up an absolute steal (depending on policy, she could have paid her company for the taco herself and netted the coin).

Mark Dice was trying to make a point about our cultural ignorance of real money (but of course he was probably relieved not to lose his gold ounce.

The Taco Bell employee is not alone. Back in 2009, when a gold coin was worth about $1100, Mark Dice couldn’t sell the coin to people on the street for $50, $5 or even give it away! In fact, many of the people he spoke with looked suspiciously at the Canadian coin, seemingly uncomfortable even looking at it.
