Disney Issued Its Own Legal Currency for Almost 30 Years
It may sound like it’s illegal, but Disney had its own currency for 29 years and there was nothing unlawful about it.
The video explains how they avoided government scrutiny,
“As long as Disney didn’t pay their own employees in Disney Dollars, and as long as Disney Dollars couldn’t be mistaken for real dollars, the government couldn’t do anything about them.
With those two restrictions in mind, the Disney Dollar was born in 1987, coming in denominations of one, five, ten, and fifty. “
The video offers a fascinating take on how a company can have their own currency… legally!
