Maybe someone can enlighten me here on Gold standard for currency:

Paper currency would be to gold what bank card is to currency. Can global economy trade on gold coins? Will there always be enough supply of gold coins? Global gold production peaked in 2001.

Also who/what will determine the exchange rates of various currencies with respect to gold? We can still have the overvalued status of Dollar with respect to gold exchange relative to yuan-gold exchange.
