BerkShares Banks

 

BerkShares can be obtained at any of the following local bank branches in exchange for U.S. dollars at a rate of 95 cents per BerkShare. The federal dollars remain on deposit at the BerkShares Exchange Banks in order to allow citizens to redeem BerkShares for dollars at the same exchange rate. At the bank, 95 dollars will yield 100 BerkShares and 100 BerkShares will yield 95 dollars. BerkShares can be spent at face value with participating businesses—for example, 10 BerkShares can be used for a $10 purchase.
