Post-fiat currencies

The Mises blog has a great post (full article here) about people preferring post-fiat currencies (pieces of paper issued by a government which no longer backs or prints them) to fiat ones. The advantage of the former is that while their worth may not be backed by guns, their supply is fixed - no one is printing any more of them. For those of us interested in the nature of money, its a curious and fascinating phenomenon.
