Authentic New York Assay Office of 1959 6.72 toz Vintage Gold Bar
Did you know in 1933 Executive order 6102 signed by Franklin D. Roosevelt made it illegal for US citizens to own or trade gold anywhere in the world? It wasn’t until 1974 that President Gerald Ford signed a bill legalizing private ownership of gold once again. Here is an incredible piece of American history. Dated 1959, with an odd weight of 6.72 Troy oz this unique ingot from the New York Assay Office comes from a time when real money was weighed, not printed.
