Imperial Bank of Lehmark

Governor of the Imperial Bank of Lehmark: William Lehman, Emperor and Autocrat of Lehmark

The Imperial Bank of Lehmark was founded to be the Central Bank of Lehmark. Since the Imperial Bank's founding it has expanded to provide Empire wide services, including currency management/exchange and banking services. The Imperial Bank also manages payroll and financial services for the Department of Treasury which is conducted through an efficient automatic online system.

As part of currency management the Imperial bank has coordinated large purchases of Silver Bullion in order to firmly establish the Imperial Florin as an active currency with a value that can one day be used outside of the Empire for legitimate purchases of goods and services.

His Imperial Majesty William the First, Emperor and Autocrat of Lehmark has been quoted many times saying:

"Sound financial and economic policy will always lead to a stable and prosperous nation. This is why the stability of silver bullion and the establishment of a Silver Standard has aided in the foundation of successful economic policy in Lehmark"

The services provided by the Imperial Bank of Lehmark has allowed the Empire to progressively build one of the most advanced currency platforms in the micronational world.

Currency in Lehmark

The Constitution of the Empire of Lehmark formally recognises two official currencies, the Imperial Florin (f ) and the Australian Dollar (AUD).

The Imperial Florin is the primary currency used internally within the Borders of Lehmark, and is used to purchase of goods and services offered by the Imperial Government and private company's in Lehmark. Imperial Government uses Imperial Florins when paying the wages of Citizens who are employed within the Imperial Government. The Imperial Florin comes in the denominations of 200f, 50f, 20f, 10f, 5f, 2f, 1f.

The Australian Dollar was established alongside the Imperial Florin as an official currency so the Empire of Lehmark had an ability to conduct business with governments and businesses outside of Lehmark, and to use a more recognised means of trade.

Physical Notes and Coins are available for purchase through the Lehmark Foreign Exchange.

The Imperial Silver Supply as of 12 February 2020

Silver Standard Development

Starting in October 2019 the Empire converted to a Silver Standard, this was achieved via the Imperial Bank who coordinated purchases of silver bullion. The usage of a silver standard gives the Imperial Florin a "real world" value, and could potentially allow for purchases of goods and services outside of Lehmark in the future.

Between October 2019 and February 2020 the Imperial a total of 228.6 troy oz of silver bullion bars and this allows Lehmark to currently peg the value of 1 Florin to 0.00711g of silver.

As a result of the introduction of the silver standard a Currency Balance took place which meant a reduction in wages, government expenses and taxes. A total of 1,000,000f remain in circulation to allow for the current value of Florin to Silver.

The ultimate goal would be to purchase a total of 20kgs of silver (roughly 645 troy oz) and peg 1f to 0.02g of silver.

Planned Silver Purchase Phases

Phase 1 was the purchase of 8.215oz of silver. Complete.

Phase 2 will involve the purchase of 20oz (Troy) of Silver. Complete.

Phase 3 will involve adding 3kgs of silver to the Treasury. Complete.

Phase 4 will involve adding another 13kgs of silver to the Treasury this is expected to be completed by 2026.

Banking Regulations

The Australian Royal Commission into the Banking and Finance Sector revealed to the public the gross corruption and negative impact the major banking and financial institutions in Australia were having on the population, and it also revealed the illegal conduct the banks were conducting behind closed doors.

The Emperor and Autocrat published Imperial Decree XLII - On Social Reform, Banking Regulations and Imperial Grant. This Decrees primary purpose was ensure that the Imperial Bank of Lehmark would stay as an institution primarily responsible for financial regulation and stabilisation. This was achieved by removing the banks ability to engage in activities which would see it make a profit.

In Accordance with Imperial Decree XLII - On National Social Policy, Banking Regulations and Imperial Grant:

  1. The Imperial Bank of Lehmark (“IBL”), was founded as the national financial institution to manage the currency, payment of wages and the Imperial Treasury the following regulations are to be introduced immediately:

    1. In terms of fees:

      1. Transaction, accounting, banking or any other fee to customers and clients of the bank – the bank does not exist as a for-profit business

    2. In terms of bank accounts/security:

      1. Names are to be removed from bank accounts and replaced with an account number which is to be randomized – this will not affect username and passwords. This will aid with security once the UBI is introduced.

      2. Businesses must apply for a separate bank account within 60 days of founding the business – this is primarily for accounting and taxation purposes.

    3. In terms of currency regulation:

      1. The IBL is hereby given the power to arbitrarily remove up to 150f from every registered bank account in the Empire every 3 – 6 months.

        1. The current digital structure of the bank does not allow for 0% interest and therefore having interest accrue reduces the value of the florin by automatic creation of more money, therefore by allowing the bank to remove said money the bank is able to stabilize the value of the currency.

    4. Other regulations:

      1. A person must be 15 years or older to register a bank account
