Constitutional Tender Legislation

The United States Constitution declares, in Article I, Section 10, “No State shall¬† make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.”¬† State-Level Constitutional Tender laws seek to nullify federal legal tender laws in the state by authorizing payment in gold and silver or a paper note backed 100% by gold or silver.
