of The United States, March 9, 1933
"By virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 5 (b) of the Act of October
6, 1917, as amended by Section 2 of the Act of March 9, 1933 ..., in which
Congress declared that a serious emergency exists, I as President, do declare
that the national emergency still exists; that the continued private hoarding of
gold and silver by subjects of the United States poses a grave threat to the
peace, equal justice, and well-being of the United States; and that appropriate
measures must be taken immediately to protect the interests of our people."
Therefore, pursuant to the above authority, I hereby proclaim that such gold and
silver holdings are prohibited, and that all such coin, bullion or other
possessions of gold and silver be tendered within fourteen days to agents of the
Government of the United States for compensation at the official price, in the
legal tender of the Government.
All safe deposit boxes in banks or financial institutions have been sealed,
pending action in the due course of the law. All sales or purchases or movements
of such gold and silver within the borders of the United States and its
territories and all foreign exchange transactions or movements of such metals
across the border are hereby prohibited.
Your possession of these proscribed metals and/or your maintenance of a safe
deposit box to store them is known by the government from bank and insurance
records. Therefore, be advised that your vault box must remain sealed, and may
only be opened in the presence of an agent of the Internal Revenue Service.
By lawful order given this day, the President of the United States.”
Franklin Roosevelt - March 9, 1933
