HOW AND WHY IT WAS DESIGNED TO BE EXACTLY EQUAL TO “THE FACE VALUE” OF 1 TROY OZ. PURE SILVER
Huh? This reader must be thinking. What is this guy talking about? Anyone who knows anything about gold and silver coinage knows that the “dollar” was first defined in the Coinage Act Of 1792. Extremely specific weights and measures were mandated with that Act. The pure silver content never changed from the first coin right up until the last one was minted in 1935. Every one of them contains exactly
.77343750 TROY OZ. pure silver
So how does that add up to “the face value” of one troy ounce of pure silver? After all, it is only a little more than 3/4 an actual troy ounce.
I will answer this question and supply the reader the exact mathematics in supporting evidence. In this process one will clearly see, not only the occult geometry underlying these very specific and unique proportions, but the diabolical plan for which they were devised. Orchestrated by a secretive few, the seed was sown in 1792. When guided to fruition, it would allow these “masters of money” and their descendents unbridled license to plunder the growing nations’ wealth right out from under the noses of the naive but hard working American people.
Alexander Hamilton, who was a zealous advocate not only for the new nation becoming a monarchy but for a strong “central bank” as well (bothinstitutions being repugnant in light of the new Constitution just ratified in 1789) certainly was in attendance and prominent among the conspirators. In clandestine meetings, Hamilton and a few others within the newly formed government, and undoubtedly agents from the powerful European central banking cartel, outlined in finest detail exactly what Congress must be convinced of passing into law. But none of these men was the plans architect, the actual evil genius who first conceived the idea of a “peoples’ dollar”, a unit for the masses separate from that of royalty, governments, and of course at the top . . . the money-changers themselves.
To get an insight into what went on in those meetings in the months preceding the passage of the Coinage Act of 1792, all one has to do is read the actual legislation that these “enlightened” gentlemen persuaded Congress to enact into law. Below is a facsimile of those sections of this Act which are essential in revealing the true mens rhea of those in control. At the same time, the mathematics leading to the geometry at the heart of their system will likewise become evident.
Take a moment and read this historic material so that what follows can be easily referenced in the Act for confirmation
Now I think it is important that the reader understand I did not start my inquiry with this Coinage Act of 1792; far from it. I knew nothing about silver coins of any kind less than a month before beginning this inquiry (11/28/10). What caught my attention and made me think about our former gold and silver based money system was all the advertising proliferating everywhere I looked hawking precious metals; especially gold and silver coins. Finally, out of curiosity, I looked at pictures of the various coins.
They are truly “beautiful” works of art, particularly for me, since I’ve spent my entire life thus far as a struggling artist. But more interesting were those strange proportions, the number ratios defining each coin’s unique specifications. Essentially what first intrigued me were the coin’s gross weights, fineness, and its pure metal contents in relation to 1.0 troy ounce.
MORGAN SILVER DOLLAR
SPECIFICATIONS: Diameter: 38.1 millimeters: Weight: 26.73 grams:
Composition: .900 silver, .100 copper Edge: Reeded Net Weight: .77344 ounce pure silver
WALKING LIBERTY HALF-DOLLAR
SPECIFICATIONS: Diameter: 30.6 millimeters: Weight: 12.50 grams:
Composition: .900 silver, .100 copper Edge: Reeded Net Weight: .36169 ounce pure silver
As a young man I had the good fortune to earn a degree in history. Partly because of this background I was particularly attracted to these two (pictured) silver coins which also were common in my youth. They were the “Morgan” silver dollar, and the “Walking Liberty” half-dollar. As a kid, I never gave them a second glance . . . until just recently.
When I saw the numbers describing the specifications for these two coins I just about fell over. Something was strangely familiar. I sensed immediately having encountered at least one of the ratios to the troy ounce in my 33 years of independent research involving the geometry of form. By now, I had been pretty sure that the geometric system I had been uncovering was not something presently known in the academic world’s literature. I thought no one except myself and those few with whom I’ve shared my research knew about this system; until now.
For after studying the above weights and measures from the Coinage Act of 1792 I’m convinced the money and power interests have known what I’m about to show you long before the birth of our nation. I’m sure the reader isn’t going to take my word for it so do the simple math yourself. Grab a piece of paper and pencil, and your calculator.
The first question that came to mind when looking at the many pictures of the “Morgan” and other U.S. silver dollars used over the centuries was, “why” someone chose .7734 of one troy ounce for the silver content of the dollar, rather than .75, or some other simpler more obvious choice? And then there is the “Walking Liberty” half-dollar, with its pure silver content of .36169 of one troy ounce. Talk about weird, don’t you just have to ask “why”? That’s what I did, and then set out to find the answer.
First, I combined the pure silver content of two half-dollars:
(.36169) + (.36169) = .72338
This, in four number places is: .7234 TROY OZ. pure silver
Not only did that seem as strange a choice as the Morgan’s silver content, but doubly odd to me, was simple subtraction showed the Morgan dollar to contain .0500 of one troy ounce silver more than the two Walking Liberty Halves combined?
“One dollar” as Morgan .7734 (pure silver content)
“One dollar” as two halves -.7234 (pure silver content)
Coupled with this fact, was again a sense of familiarity with this ratio. When I checked my number file, compiled from decades of my geometry research, it was there: the bizarre answer to the question “why”. Here was a portal into a mystery which would soon reveal a very dark side of American’s past.
History clearly shows that long before the “people” of this world had any personal contact with gold or silver, the kings and emperors who lorded over their masses used these precious metals for trade and payment between and amongst themselves.
In that distant past, because grains of wheat and barley are incredibly consistent and uniform granules, extremely accurate systems of weights and measures evolved. Precise numbers of them combined to form greater increments of the basic units. In time one of these units consisting of 480 grains became dominant. It is known as the troy ounce and is still in exclusive use to this day whenever measuring portions of gold and silver.
Certainly in the beginning, and still to this day, the troy ounce as a reference standard implies an ounce of pure gold or silver; not some blend, but “the real deal”. Purity was and is as important a standard as is accurate weight. Both are essential to the reference unit or there is no system. This has been understood for millennia.
At some point in time and social development, it became obvious to the overlords that if their “subjects” had a system of coinage to facilitate trade amongst themselves their productivity would increase and they would be even more valuable to the ruling elite. But they couldn’t let their peasants and serfs, or even the mere “commoners” use the same system they used. If nothing else, it would shorten the social bridge separating the royals from the masses far too much for their comfort. But just as important, having the power to design a coinage system for the masses would allow the ruling elite to secretly funnel the growing wealth of their subjects directly into their coffers.
Though they would begin with their own precious standard, the troy ounce, there would have been no advantage to allowing the masses to partake in that exact same system that had forced some level of honesty among themselves. No, they needed to be able to manipulate the system as necessary. Obfuscation and confusion would be their most useful tools. So beginning with one troy ounce of pure silver, they devised a facsimile of this “real deal” for the “people’s dollar”. In the spirit of their twisted sense of honesty, the critical specifications for this new people’s dollar was based upon
THE FACE VALUE OF ONE TROY OUNCE PURE SILVER
What follows is how this was accomplished along with the accompanying mathematics and geometry as evidence. Check the math, and then you come to your own conclusions.
Start by reviewing the Coinage Act of 1792. As you can clearly see, these men were extremely precise in their description of what was to become one United States “dollar”. Note that they redundantly described it in two different manners so there could be no confusion: each “dollar” was to contain,
(1) 371.25 grains pure silver
(2) 416 grains of standard silver
Sec. 13 defines “standard silver” as:
1485 parts pure silver
179 parts copper
1664 parts total
Therefore “standard silver” is an alloy containing 1485 / 1664 (or 89.2427885…%) pure silver. NOT 90% by choice, but 89.242…% by choice. Doesn’t that seem strange? And again, out of the coin’s total weight of 416 grains, 371.25 grains are of pure silver: 371.25 / 416 is 89.242…%.
If they had been trying for 90% in their 416 grain coin, they could have easily mandated a ratio of 374.5 / 416 (which is 90.0240%). In fact, a few years earlier in 1786 while still under the Articles of Confederation, the Congressional Board of Treasury calculated that the “dollar” should contain “three hundred and seventy five grains and sixty four hundredths of a grain of fine silver”, and “will be worth as much as the New Spanish Dollars”. This would have created a 90.2980. . . % fineness. Or, keeping the 371.25 grain silver content they could have mandated the weight of the coin to be 412.5 grains rather than 416 grains, like the Coinage Act of January 18, 1837 mandated forty-five years later:
371.25 / 412.5 = 90.000…%
But they didn’t? In light of the above, it must be concluded that these men needed the dollar to be of this specific size (416 grains) and fineness (89.242…% pure).
It all seems innocent enough until one looks behind the curtain into some of the mathematical nuances of their numismatics. Today we are afforded this luxury through historical hindsight since their scam has long since run its course. (Unless you consider getting us all using worthless script, Federal Reserve Notes, as part of the plan to begin with, which it was.) Unfortunately, hindsight wasn’t available to the victims the scam was designed to rob.
The above mentioned Coinage Act of 1837 was instrumental for implementing the plan secretly set in motion back in 1792. This 1837 Act mandated keeping the silver content in the dollar the same but reducing the coin’s gross weight, which as was earlier pointed out, made the silver content 90% pure for the first time. Hamilton and his co-conspirators would have preferred the 412.5 grain coin back in 1792, rather than the 416 grain coin they felt compelled to propose, but the smaller coin would have deviated too far from the weight of the mandated Spanish dollar. Certainly they would have also preferred debasing the fractional coins right from the start. But they were only the money-masters, not the elected representatives of the people.
Article.1. Section .8. of the US Constitution stipulated that only Congress shall have the power To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures. In 1792, it was the individual congressmen freely elected from the various states who had to be convinced by the Hamilton cabal that these were the specifications necessary. Many among them had their own notions about what should constitute the new dollar. Some asked amongst themselves, why not a full one ounce pure silver dollar with proportional fractional coins? Why not 90% purity for “standard silver”? Why model our new dollar on “the value of a Spanish milled dollar as the same as is now current” when we have the opportunity to do better? The new legislators wanted to know the answers to these and many other questions. Very few, if any at all, were actually knowledgeable regarding the subtle intricacies of banking and its inseparable ties to the coinage of money. This knowledge had historically been shrouded in mystery.
The Revolutionary War had just expelled the tyrannical central Bank of England and the private central banking model, and the new nation would tolerate nothing short of an honest money system. And for a money system to be honest, its coinage must have a consistent intrinsic value throughout all denominations. For example, a half-dollar silver coin must have exactly half the silver content as the dollar coin. Smaller increments must follow accordingly.
Hamilton knew there was no chance of persuading this congress any deviation whatsoever from “honest money”; and, that the best they could hope to do (in 1792) was to setup the specification parameters so that their coins could later be incrementally modified one small change at a time with later congresses. This way the conspirators knew nobody would be the wiser once the wealth potential built into the design of their coinage started to flow into their own private vaults.
But that would have to wait until February 21, 1853. That’s when the harvest began. The bankers convinced Congress of the need to “debase” the coinage which had for over sixty years retained its original silver content. This Act mandated the reduction in the amount of silver in fractional coins so that they were no longer able to be combined and still add up to the same amount of silver contained in the single dollar coin. After 1853, ten dimes, four quarters, and two half-dollars, all respectfully having a nominal “face value” of one dollar, nonetheless would now contain a tiny bit of silver less than their former selves and remaining whole dollar coins.
With these new coins in circulation the money-masters could now begin to reap the harvest from the seeds sown by their fathers and grandfathers. For the next 100 years a great part of the wealth created by the sweat and toil of the American working masses flowed unnoticed into the hands of those who already controlled most of the world’s wealth.
But these coins, though sufficient enough in their specifications for sacking the wealth, nonetheless were still imperfect in the eyes of the true manipulators at the top of the power pyramid. “Sufficient” wasn’t good enough. It was the “perfection” of an ideal they alone were aware and endeavored to achieve. It was that same ideal toward which Hamilton in the beginning dared only plant the seed. Secrecy had to be paramount, for the cost of awakening the curiosity of some astute politician could very well jeopardize their plan in its entirety.
That risk was too high in 1792 for Hamilton and his co-conspirators, just as it was for his successors in 1837. Now, this 1853 Mint Act reduced the half-dollar to a 192 grain total weight, which was comprised of the standard silver of 90% pure. Though nominally a “dollar”, two half-dollars now contained only 384 grains compared to the whole dollar coin of 412.5 grains. As a result, each half-dollar contained .90 X 192 = 172.8 grains of pure silver. Compared to the troy ounce: 172.8 / 480 = .36000000. . . means that .36 troy ounce of pure silver was in each coin. Thus, the “nominal” dollar contained
.72000000 TROY OZ. pure silver.
It was this ratio, so appealing in its simplicity, that thwarted the behind the scenes manipulators from reaching their preconceived design objectives. Once more congress debated the merits of various proposals (ignoring the unconstitutionality of this debasement in the first place regardless of the amount agreed upon). Once this ratio had been suggested congress closed its mind to any other proposals. Even the Mint supported the easy formulation with these specifications. The plotters would have to wait for another congress, and have a substantive argument for initiating the last tiny adjustment to the fractional silver coinage.
For the next twenty years all fractional silver coins were minted to these specifications. At the same time the European central banking cartel was steadily moving their subject political subdivisions toward a gold only standard, along with promoting the adoption of the metric system of measure. This was the opportunity they long awaited.
Another Coinage Act was introduced in 1873 in which, for various reasons proposed, the silver content of the fractional coins was slightly increased. One of the strongest arguments alleged, was to bring the coins more into line with the European coinage and the metric measures growing in use worldwide. The half-dollar at 192 grains was also 12.44139072 grams. This Act mandated the half-dollar to be exactly 12.5 grams with the quarters and dimes being proportional.
Now, the new 12.5 gram coin contained .90 pure silver, or exactly 11.25 grams of pure silver. These coins, with these exact specifications would be minted continually until 1964. While there had been four major changes from the original constitutional dollar and fractional silver coins in the first 81 years, there were none over the course of the next 91 years.
Finally, it was done. They had created their mystical “unit of account”, the “people’s dollar”. It was separate from their own system with their sacred troy ounce as its base unit. But at the same time, it was derived directly from the occult geometry of the troy ounce. After all, these monetary architects were part of that mystery school responsible for the strange (alleged by many to be Masonic) layout of Washington D.C., where its clear to see from any aerial view that “geometry” was a very significant and important element to at least some of the founders. That this influence extended to the nation’s coinage shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.
What the conspirators knew then was well known in the deep dark past. Long before the mystery schools founded by Plato and others who followed, empires erased from memory and now long forgotten had used these exact specifications for their own systems of coinage. Even then, the true “occult” reasoning for these precise proportions remained the intellectual property of the elite. Over the course of time, as these former empires successively declined from their “golden age” and newer coinage supplanted those of the past, the exact formulation and the ability to actually alloy the metals with the required precision was lost. By the time the Dark Ages had enveloped the European continent, the various coins in circulation only approximated what had formerly been the standard. During the age of European seafaring and discovery, and especially with the emergence of the Spanish empire in the New World and their establishment of sophisticated mints throughout, there emerged once again coins very close to the ideal of the mystery schools of the pas
By the time the British colonies had become firmly established on the American continent the Spanish eight reales, or the legendary “pieces of eight” had too become a customary medium or “unit” of exchange. The American silver “dollar” traces its historical roots back to this Spanish “dollar”. Over the years, it too had evolved much like the American dollar would (as was briefly summarized in the previous pages). The specifications of the first American dollar were so close to the Spanish eight reales that they remained legal tender on a par with the American dollar until 1857.
This relationship should be no surprise since it is mandated in the Coinage Act of 1792 that the new American dollar is “to be of the value of a Spanish milled dollar as the same is now current” (refer to selection at beginning). It had become well known to the Continental Congress in the late 1780’s, who had commissioned studies of the Spanish coins, that their weight of 423.9 grains and .9305 fineness resulted in a 394.438 grain fine silver content. Other sources say that the eight reale had been reduced in 1730 to 417.6 grains having a fineness of .9166 and pure silver content of 382.8; and, again in 1772 keeping the same 417.6 grain weight but reducing its fineness to .90278 thus containing 377.00092 grains pure silver.
Regardless of the current value of the colonies contemporary reale, in 1786 the Congressional Board of Treasury recommended that the “dollar will contain 375 grains and sixty four hundredths of a grain of fine silver. A dollar containing this number of grains of fine silver will be worth as much as the New Spanish Dollars.” On August 8, 1787, Congress adopted this standard as “the money Unit of the United States”.
As pointed out earlier, the specifications finally agreed upon in 1792 created a coin slightly smaller in both weight and silver content despite the very same document (The Coinage Act of 1792) and legislative history mandating it “to be of the value of a Spanish milled dollar”? Most historical evidence shows the eight reale was indeed more massive than the new American coin. But, if the intention was to replicate the familiar Spanish dollar, why had they missed their mark by so much?
The answer is Hamilton and his cabal of European central banking agents off in the shadowy wings of the congressional halls. These agents were from the same clandestine society of illuminous keepers of occult secrets. They had also, in the decades before, been tirelessly engaged in the same pursuits with the Spanish dollar, secretly attempting behind the scenes to guide it into their ideal monetary unit. History would show that it was to be this new American dollar that would finally achieve their desired aspirations.
Throughout Europe the enlightened keepers, operating at the pinnacle of these secret hierarchies of occult knowledge, knew of a simple geometric relationship between a sphere and a cube. They used this relationship to create their two separate but equal monetary systems. The one system that had forever been the province of the money masters and their respective emperors, kings, and nobility, employed the troy ounce as their fundamental unit of exchange. And the other system was for the masses, to whom they had conceded the full face value of their troy ounce to be the peoples’ fundamental unit of exchange. In their minds this was the perfect apartheid monetary system and was more than fair in a world where slavery and serfdom was the norm.
Here is how their ideal coinage specifications were derived from the geometry of the sphere and cube. The troy ounce (in this case, of silver) is packaged in the form of a perfect sphere. This is the “unit” in its most efficient packaging form. Geometrically speaking, the spherical form holds the most volume using the least surface area possible. Now imagine this spherical unit of silver having next to it a cube of silver. And further, that this cube’s surface area is exactly equal to the sphere’s surface area. Their face areas, their “face values” are identical. Not so their volumes of pure silver content. These compare in the same way as the volume of a sphere having a surface area equal to 1.0 unit compares to the volume of a cube, also with a 1.0 unit surface area.
Since this cube’s 1.0 unit surface is subdivided into six squares, each square face has an area equal to 1/6. The cubes edge length is therefore the square root of 1/6, which when cubed becomes the cube’s volume of .068041. . . The 1.0 surface unit sphere’s volume is found by finding its radius first. And since the area of any sphere is 4π times its radius squared, solving for its radius = (1 / 4π)1/2 , which is .282094… Using its radius, the volume of the 1.0 surface unit sphere is found by the formula (4πr 3 / 3) revealing a volume of .094031. . .
So the cube of pure silver, exactly equal to the face value of the 1 troy ounce sphere of pure silver, nonetheless contains only .0680 / .0940 troy ounce pure silver:
.0680 / .0940 = .7234 TROY OZ. pure silver
and (referring back to page 4) is recognized as the amount of pure silver contained in a nominal “face value” dollar comprised of any combination of the fractional U.S. silver half-dollars, quarters and dimes after the Coinage Act of 1873. These were the coins that fueled the incomparable American economy and its rise to world prominence by the mid 1960’s.
To the mystical geometers who first discovered this special relationship between the Unit and its comparable Unit of “face value”, and those also who (to this day) are the current custodians of this secret, it is this amount of silver, and only this amount of silver with respect to their troy ounce that can acquire the occult powers naturally imbued as a direct consequence of this near perfect correspondence to the precepts of their mystical geometry.
The Spanish dollar the colonists were accustomed to using, and which their representatives deemed appropriate to model their new American dollar after, contained far more silver than the mystics ideal “peoples dollar” which finally emerged in the American fractional coins after 1873. It would have been futile to have argued for its adoption back in 1792. Besides, the prevailing “honest money” sentiment would have required making both the fractional coins and the whole dollar coins proportional in weight, making a later debasement for plundering purposes void of any mystical power.
All of this the conspirators were well aware. And because it is the debasement of the fractional coins that provides the mechanism for plundering the wealth all that they were charged to do in 1792 was entrench a dollar unit closely based on their ideal unit and to which ideal it would later be debased. This was accomplished by the addition of 1/20th troy ounce pure silver added to their ideal “peoples” fractional dollar unit. This was not enough to make it the equivalent of a Spanish dollar but close enough that Congress approved it nonetheless:
.0680 / .0940 = .7234 troy oz. (pure silver, 2 half dollars)
+ .0500 troy oz.
.7734 troy oz. (pure silver, Original Dollar through last Peace Dollar)
The exact mathematics involving the above geometric proportions follow here, along with the mathematics produced from working backwards from the historic known or mandated specifications. All of these computational approaches will be shown to produce the same pure silver content, 22.50. . . grams, as that which all American silver fractional coinage contains since 1873.
(1) The exact mathematics based on the geometry of the sphere and the cube.
(a) .068041387… = volume of cube with surface area equal to 1.0
(b) .094031597… = volume of sphere with surface area equal to 1.0
(c) (.068041387… / .094031597…) = (.723601255… / 1.0)
showing that the volume of the cube is .723601255… the volume of the sphere.
(d) If the sphere is 1.0 troy ounce pure silver, the amount of pure silver contained
in the cube is (.723601255…) X (31.10347680… grams) =
(2) The exact mathematics based on the historic record.
(a) The congressional mandate in 1873 adjusted the final weight of the “fractional” silver dollars
to total 25.0 grams. Two halves, four quarters, or ten dimes would contain 25 grams of 90% pure silver.
(b) (.90) X (25.0 grams) = 22.50…grams
The mathematics probably used back in the late 1800’s, and especially when the degrading of the Spanish dollar led to the first American version in 1792, would most likely favor rounding-off the already “naturally rounded” quantities built by geometry into the relationship between the sphere and cube of equal face value. The zero separation after the cube’s .0680 volume, and sphere’s .0940 volume, creates a natural gap separating the miniscule remaining proportions. In the case of the cube, the 4 after the 0 refers to a 4/100,000th (of a troy ounce of silver), and the 3 after the sphere’s 0 refers to a mere 3/100,000th (of a troy ounce of silver). Even with today’s technologies, no mint strikes coins to this level of tolerance. So why would anyone expect the Hamilton cabal, back in 1792, to have used any mathematical tolerance beyond .0680… / .0940…? This being the case:
(3) The “practical” mathematics based on the geometry of the sphere and the cube.
(a) .0680 / .0940 = .723404255… and
(b) (.723404255) X (31.10347680…) = 22.50038747
There can be no disputing, that indeed, American silver coinage IS exactly patterned (by all meaningful and practical criteria) on the relationship between the “face value” of a 1.0 troy ounce pure silver sphere and a cube of pure silver with the same “face value” as the sphere.
The following will show unequivocally that this is anything but a coincidence.
