The Oliver


A brief history follows: the currency is now in the hands of a lot of people. A project like this takes time to grow and become tenable. It is hoped that the Oliver will become as much a part of Bath as anything else it is famous for. There are many people in this City that are serious about eco-living, bartering and alternate lifestyles. The Oliver presents a means to facilitate some of this. Its present value, in 2012, is 40-50p. However, as with any functioning currency, market forces dictate the value. It may well change in value over the coming months as it finds its feet. The more it is used, the more ordinary people will benefit, and the more valuable a resource it becomes.
