    Default 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.

    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.
