"All That Glitters is Not Gold" is the For Real Segment for "Trading Places",


Bianca finds a gold coin—and thinks that she's rich! When she takes her coin to an expert to find out how rich, she learns that the coin is only worth a dollar, not to mention it is not really gold. She also learns that in past currency was made of something precious or represented a particular amount of silver or gold. Today, though, money is symbolic, worth an agreed-upon exchange value.
