It's easy to get lost in the lingo. I think every forum needs a dictionary to explain the commonly used terms.

A 'terminal' is referring to an action card (you may see the phrase 'terminal action').

Basically it is a card that does not give you another action to play. You will also see variations such as 'terminal silver'. An example of this is Chancellor: +$2. You may immediately put your deck into your discard pile.

So this card is a terminal action because it gives no further action points to play but also gives you the equivalent of a Silver.

That's actually a really good idea!  I think I'll go start a thread...

that's a very good idea. It'll be helpful for new folks to the game like my wife and I to get up and running faster.
