    If you are minted, what does that mean?

    Yo, Herman.
    Sure, what time?
    Cool.
    No problem. I can cover tonight.
    - I'm totally fucking minted. Later.
    This is a dialogue from The Sopranos. It's AJ talking to someone.

    What does minted mean? According to the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English it could mean:

    very rich used especially by young people

    However, that seems weird in that context.

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks.

    Re: If you are minted, what does that mean?

    Even in quotes, certain words are considered offensive and not suitable for the forum. Please replace one/a few letters in swear words.

    So for your last line, something like "I'm totally f*cking minted..."

    Thank you.
