The Losing Battle to Fix Gold at $35  “Gold-price history charts denominated in US dollars show a flat line at $35 that runs through most of the 20th century. Thirty-five dollars was, after all, the official gold price as set by the United States Treasury from 1934 on. Prior to 1934, the gold price had been fixed at $20.67 for almost a century, before President Franklin Roosevelt confiscated Americans’ gold and revalued the price to $35 that year.”   Ludvig Vomn Mises Institute  2/18/09
