That's not entirely true - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gresham's_law.

"which states that when government compulsorily overvalues one money and
undervalues another, the undervalued money will leave the country or
disappear into hoards, while the overvalued money will flood into
circulation" i.e. "bad money drives out good *if their exchange rate is
set by law*".
