People were paid market value (face value) for their gold coins, which were actual circulated currency during "the great confiscation of 1933" but the kicker is that gold was revalued (from $20/oz to $30/oz I think) after the government recalled it.
I don't know if it would even be worth their effort to confiscate gold bullion from the tiny fraction of the population who owns any today. They'll probably just tax the living daylights out of it so they'll end up with most of the profits in the end anyway. Not to mention that no one would comply. Many people didn't comply back in 1933.
I used to own some gold and then there was a terrible boating accident... That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I'm not going to worry about it. If they try to do it an underground black market will immediately emerge.
Supposedly, Fort Knox is loaded with gold bars, but it hasn't been audited in decades. Who really knows for sure?
Panic investments. Advertising works it seems.
Just invest in health insurance companies now that everyone is required to purchase it you know their stock is going to soar.
