_This is from my Sister and Brother-in-law, who have no reason whatsoever to tell me anything untrue. This is the third time he has had a story of one kind or another from a bank.
This particular event happened Wednesday, 3/21/2012. The "Dad" referenced in the story is my dad, so more reason to know this is absolutely true.
"I have to deliver tapes to our bank every Wednesday for our (xxxxxxxx) off-site storage. Our bank president was in today so I thought "why not, it's now or never".
I just went in and told him "...you might think I'm crazy, but have you heard anything about the Iraqi Dinar?" He said "No, What's an Iraqi Dinar?".

_I went on to explain a bit and he was unfazed (not in a bad way, he just listened). I told him that we would like them to be the ones that would walk through this with us.
I explained that Dad's gift's purpose was to get us out of debt and tithing/giving would be a big part of our plan.
He was fine with that. I asked him about TAG/Dodd-Frank accounts and he said that they were available there, but reminded me that they were only through the end of the year, but they could do a lot about splitting assets to different accounts to keep them safe.
He said that they did not deal in physical currency, but we could go to BoA and it was an easy matter to wire transfer the funds.
Bottom line, although he had never heard of it, he talked to me like I was talking to him about any other investment. The guys that are in a panic about bankers dealing with this, forget sometimes that bankers deal with lots of zeros all the time.
He was VERY supportive and of course wanted to work with us if and when it happened. Another thing I took away from this was either he is the world's best poker player, or we are quite possibly the only ones with dinar in xxxxxxxx or at least the only ones at this bank and it is probably the predominant bank here.
He is on the board of ****** ******* Bank and they have offices all around southeast Kansas (ElDorado, Chanute, Parsons, Pittsburg, Independence, Neodesha, Fredonia, plus several other small towns) and meet every week, so you would have thought SOMEBODY would have brought it up."
End of story. I just thought it was a good positive story about a small town bank and their willingness to listen.
