The state bank can issue promissory notes, but  those notes
must still pass the "test" of exchange to be socially validated
as money.   If, for whatever reason,  those notes are not
accepted as a medium of exchange and if those notes are not
able to serve the other functions of money,  then they don't
become, or continue to be, money and revert to what they were
before being issued by the state bank, i.e. just pieces of paper.

In solidarity, Jerry
