CoinWeek Podcast #20: Herb Hicks and the Illegality of Collecting Gold Certificates

In this audio retelling of Charles Morgan and Hubert Walker's NLG-award-winning essay, we dig into the laws that prohibited the private ownership of Gold Certificates after the enactment of Executive Order 6102 and the legal rationale allowing for the eventual easement of restrictions regarding their private ownership.
