Please note, this article is full of errors and is complete bunk, I only posted it because it was an update on this old case which was pure straightforward theft by the government, I only posted it because people in the comments were rightly destroying it.
For example, it says Theodore Roosevelt took us off the gold standard, it was actually FDR. It says all the coins were stolen, first off that's a lie, the government said they can't prove they weren't stolen, second the government ordered 445,000 of these coins to be seized and melted down, it was part of the biggest robbery in history when FDR ordered everyone's gold to be seized and everyone was left with the receipt (paper dollars which were merely titles to physical gold).
Not turning your gold in to be stolen is not theft, it's the opposite. This case was about as legitimate as an IRS audit where you have to prove all your income, yet it was an IRS audit of the family's long deceased grandfather almost a century ago.
If you want the real history on this case see this article here. - ChrisA judge ruled that 10 rare gold coins worth $80 million belonged to the U.S. government, not a family that had sued the U.S. Treasury, saying it had illegally seized them.
