Iran "officially" (read: they'd be insane to declare everything they have!!) has 907 tonnes of gold.

That's 3x more than the UK (Cheers, Gordon Brown).
It's value is, at todays gold price of $1780/ Oz:
1780*32.1 Oz/kilo = $57,000 per kilo
1000 kilos in a tonne.
$57,000,000 per tonne.
57m * 907 = $51.7 bn
Gross external debt in 2010 was $14.34 billion

So, why not back the currency with oil or gold?
Inflation problem solved.
Currency collapse problem solved.
First 'hard' currency in new world.
