So a customer wanted to pay with a gold Martin Van Buren today.

This commemorative money is getting out of hand. I had to call home today and have someone look up to find out about the new coins so we could accept it.



If you saw how crappy this thing looked IRL, you'd ask for a paper dollar too.

Van Buren looks like one of the Three Stooges.

You did the right thing.
