Most precious metals advocates are aware that gold and silver have been used as money for thousands of years. Yet the actual history of gold and silver as money in the US can be a complex topic, with different interpretations of what the constitution states, and how those laws were meant to be applied.

This is a bit different than what our founding fathers had in mind, and Americans are currently feeling the impact of some of the less-than-positive changes that have taken place since it all began.
