President McKinley signs Gold Standard Act, March 14, 1900.
122 years ago today, President William McKinley signed the Gold Standard Act, which established gold as the sole basis for redeeming paper currency.
The act halted the practice of bimetallism, which had allowed silver to also serve as a monetary standard.
It set the value of gold at $20.67 an ounce and valued the dollar at 25.8 grains of gold.
The act guaranteed that the government would redeem any amount of paper money for its value in gold, and it meant that transactions no longer had to be done with heavy gold bullion or coins because the paper currency had a guaranteed value tied to something real.
The final solution is bound to be with central banks and government treasury departments retaining their control as issuers of money by the only means at their disposal: deploying their gold reserves to back their currencies, not as fiat, but as credible gold substitutes.
The crypto cohort is likely to have an important effect, in that it sparks an early realization in a growing part of the wider population about what government is doing with money. That is likely to speed up the collapse of fiat currencies compared to what would otherwise occur.
The flexibility in the supply of monetary gold and the stability of prices allows the original rate of interest to be both low and stable. It allows entrepreneurs to do business calculations with a high degree of certainty, knowing in terms of goods the value of money. And savers, who provide the monetary capital for future production can be confident of the future capital value of their savings when lending them for business investment purposes.
