1. The official currency of pirates. Almost always made of pure gold, but occasionally of silver as well. All have some form of the Jolly Roger struck on one side. The majority of pirate booty is gold doubloons.

2. In the United States, Sacajawea or Presidential dollar coins, especially new, shiny ones.
Pirate 1: Y'arr, what be yer share of the booty, matey?
Pirate 2: Eighty-five gold doubloons! ARRRGH!
Pirate 1: We'd best be gettin' to the tavern, then, there's a lot of wenching and drinking to do!
Pirate 2: Y'ARRRRRR!

Bob: I had to use a 20 in the ticket machine on the subway. Fuckin' thing gave me 18 doubloons for change.

a nickname for the new year of 2011

a mix of "double" and "une" (French for "one") (ish)

also, doubloons can be pirates treasure, perhaps signifying this new Golden Age of (online) Piracy?!

plus, it just rolls off the tongue much easier than "Twenty eleven" does.
-Well, Doubloon is off to a great start!

-They said the movie comes out in the Summer of Doubloon, but didn't give a specific date yet.

-2010 was kind of lame, hopefully Doubloon is better!
