I was always the apprehension that, at least in the US, the only people
who have to use legal tender is the Government. Everyone else was merely
governed by contract law - i.e., if our contract tells you to deliver in
pounds, you deliver in pounds, just like if the contract said to deliver
in televisions, or Rembrandants.
