Money Metals Exchange

Americans once carried gold coins in their pockets. They used gold coins to make purchases for from the moment United States was founded until 1933, when president Franklin Roosevelt put an end to gold as circulating money.

The US Mint stopped production of gold coins, but that did not stop aficionados, collectors and investors from pulling the existing coins from circulation and storing them away. They instinctively new the move to end the official gold standard would make those coins more valuable, not less. The coins were also intrinsically beautiful, and seemed worth saving.
