Describes the 50 peso Mexico gold coin as "rare" which it isn't. It is a bullion piece.


Gustavo Mercado, a newly arrived immigrant from Mexico, was so happy to have a decent job at a beautiful lake in America that he offered a gift to his employer, a 50 peso Libertad gold coin.

(The Libertads are silver)


The senator from Massachusetts thought long and hard about keeping the coin, as he found himself hard-pressed to think of anybody more powerful than himself...

(No doubt a dig against Senator Kennedy)
