In April, 1933 the official price of gold was $23/ozt and President Roosevelt made owning gold illegal for US citizens. He gave them 3 weeks to turn in their gold and paid them $20.75/ozt. About 8 months later, he changed the official price of gold to $35 and bailed out the banks with the profits he made on the people's gold.
