Conjoined Numismatic Heralds `Net Value’ Currency
Unprecedented coin/card equation accesses The $ports Index “Charter Member” club
[DALLAS, TX: March 05, 2016] At the national “Money Show“ on March 5, a history-making coin made the case for a world-first numismatic classification. The educational “Net Zero Coin” (NZC) portends `net value’ denomination by virtue of a first-ever dual-numeric equation. NZC’s factor equals face value zero (+ p 0 -3.14) It’s complemented by a `charter member’ minted brass card which illustrates ‘full-faith-and-credit’ concepts, forging an unprecedented conjoined numismatic Set.
In Dallas, TSI founder/president Terry Poulos appeared at the annual American Numismatic Association “National Money Show” and delivered a “Money Talks” presentation to ANA members and the public on the topic of “The Real Value of Money.”
NZC, along with the first ever true sculpture that commemorates the world’s oldest computer, first debuted at a private event held at the National Hellenic Museum (NHM) in Chicago. NZC has since been accepted into the permanent collection of four museums: The British Museum, NHM, ANA, and ANS.
The ‘net’ concept evolves the traditional single-number currency model (E.g, Ten Cents; 1 Euro). While not legal tender, it contains figurative denomination with an alternative twist on the promissory note paradigm of spot-price international trade fluctuation. This infinite balance between current trading value and face value, itself constitutes yet another type of ‘defacto’ net value.
The Set accesses an exclusive club of repeat innovation. Ownership grants charter status in The Sports Index, Inc., a Chicago-based start-up which previously launched The $ports Index®, the first bellwether stock market composite average of sports-related companies. TSI disseminates financial and editorial content at TheSportsIndex.com. A digital curriculum and more applications are in concept stage. Though the Set endows no equity, upside value via association with TSI could prove lucrative should TSI and its brands proliferate. Member privileges are codified in a hybrid TSI/NZC “Certificate of Authenticity/Bond of Charter Membership.“
The ornate glyph Pi was selected due to its being the most recognized symbol in math. Additionally, being random and infinite, it’s the ideal emblem for value fluctuation. The Obverse features a bull and bear, metaphors for the stock market‘s “zero sum game.” The Reverse honors one of the primary drivers of value for modern legal tender, GNP. All else being equal (E.g, natural resources, skilled labor force, business execution), the tipping point for true currency value is innovation and technology. NZC reflects this paradigm by commemorating a device commonly referred to as the world’s oldest computer, the Antikythera Mechanism (c. 205 BC). Esoteric glyphs are inscribed on the coin, card and sculpture, clues to a mathematical and scientific riddle.
A maximum 1000 Series A Limited Edition Sets are authorized. The coin has a copper alloy core, silver bullion proof plating, and 24k gold highlights. The coin was manufactured by Northwest Territorial Mint. The die-cast brass card was manufactured through NWTMint. Codes and clues permeate throughout, price no exception. The coin, card, certificate and charter membership, and custom acrylic holder total (post-tax) $157 (half of 314).
