Fiat currency

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Fiat currency is currency that is founded merely on government decree and cannot be converted to an asset such as gold and silver[1]. It is any currency that is issued at will (usually by a government) without precious metals or other tangibles backing its value. (From the Latin "Let it be done.")
