The Google Books Ngram displays a graph showing how phrases have occurred in a corpus of books (e.g., “British English”, “English Fiction”, “French”) over the selected years. Ngram for “silver,debt,money,gold,bonds” from 1800 to 2008.

+ Clearly “gold is money”!
– I’m really surprised “debt” has not been much more prominent lately.
