First Molossia Coin Very Popular.

Our new One Valora Coin, the first coin issued by the Bank of Molossia, has demonstrated amazing popularity in its first month. In just over 30 days, 31 Valora coins have been sold, mostly to collectors around the world. This popularity has surprised the normally stoic directors of the Bank of Molossia, who responded by saying "who knew?".

We are quite proud of the success of this first coinage created by our Government. It has proven to be yet another symbol of our nation's progress and prosperity.

The Bank of Molossia can be visited here. The new One Valora Coin can be purchased for $2.00 US each (shipping included). If you are interested, please send your request via e-mail here, for further information.

Kyoto Protocol Ratified

The 1997 Kyoto Protocol To The United Nations Framework Convention On Climate Change has been ratified by the Government of the Republic of Molossia, effective 5 November 2004 XVII. The Kyoto Protocol is an amendment to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), an international treaty on global warming, of which Molossia is already a signatory. It also reaffirms sections of the UNFCCC. Countries which ratify this protocol will commit to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide and other "greenhouse gases".

His Excellency, The President of Molossia was a major advocate of the adoption of this protocol, spurred on by the recent ratification of it by Russia. His Excellency is quoted as saying, "This protocol is a good thing, for Molossia and the world. We really should have ratified this sooner. I am just disappointed that the United States has not chosen to accept this protocol. I guess it just shows that, to them, dollars are more important than the environment. The Cree Indians have a saying, 'Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught, will we realize that we cannot eat money'. Maybe someday America will realize that they cannot eat money, hopefully before it's too late".

It is certain that adopting this protocol will only make Molossia, and the world, a better place to live in.
