Executive Order 6102 sat there on his desk, ink still drying, staring him in the face. All he had to do was sign it. Pen in hand, he hesitated. Wondering if he really could pull this off…
If he did he would be a hero. But it could backfire. Big time.
And it could take him down with it.
“I, Franklin D Roosevelt…do declare that said national emergency still continues to exist and…do hereby prohibit the hoarding of gold…”
President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed his notorious executive order 6102 banning private gold ownership in 1933.
Roosevelt was desperate for a fix to the government’s problems… any fix.
Do you think something like this could happen again… to you?
Average Joe: The Treasury’s Most Wanted
FDR’s signature made it a criminal offense to possess gold coin or bullion.
A running joke at the time said the guy walking down the sidewalk with a bottle of booze in his hand was an upstanding citizen, but you, with a gold coin in your pocket… you were a criminal.
In 1933 no one would have believed that lawmakers could ban gold. And not get away with it. But they did.
You had less than one month to comply… or face a fine up to $10,000 and 10 years in prison.
A few people didn’t take the new order seriously… And they paid. Their gold was confiscated and they were locked up.
One of those was Louis Ruffino, who was convicted of illegal possession of 78 ounces of gold. He was sentenced to 6 months in prison, along with a $500 fine and his gold seized.
If you surrendered your gold, you got $20.67 per ounce in paper dollars. But within a year, FDR raised the price of gold to $35/oz (which devalued the dollar), effectively taxing you 40% for turning in your gold.
Gerald Ford To The Rescue?
It wasn’t until 1974 that you could again legally own gold in the United States, after President Ford repealed the executive orders and laws criminalizing gold ownership for over 40 years.
You may think of this as ancient history. But think again.
Lawmakers could ban gold again. Your gold might be their “lender of last resort.”
Government debt isn’t getting any smaller. And the banking system isn’t getting any healthier.
Eventually there will be another banking system meltdown. And politicians will resort to desperate measures… like they always do.
Just look at what happened in Cyprus.
When bad things happen politicians will do anything to fix it… Even if it means lying, cheating and stealing (things they are already expert at). And they’ll do it under the guise of “national security.”
