Consider the scenarios, X is a colony of the Empire. People fight back and they establish the resistance government. The newly-founded resistance government creates its own money for their people. Money is domestic used and replace money of the Empire (who occupied the region). Now, people buy and sell things using resistance money. However, something fishy is happening in inner circle of the government.
People are required to donate gold "voluntarily". Government said this gold is used to keep value of money. (At least, people believe so)
Government secretly used the "backed gold" to buy weapons for The Resistance but lie that those weapons are "free stuff" from our allies.
As a result, all donated gold used to keep the value of money is gone (with few high office know only).
I would like to ask how can it impact the economic of the X.
