History shows that the real “dollar” is a coin containing 371.25 grains (troy) of fine silver. Or 0.84 troy ounces. Measuring the value of an ounce of silver in a unit defined as 0.84 ounces of silver does not make any sense. An ounce of silver in dollars should be 1/0.84 which equals - 1.19 dollars. If it is not this value then something has gone astray. The scales are not in balance. There is a force at play which is causing this imbalance. It is madness to measure the value of our silver in dollars, because they are both the same thing. It is like saying my scania truck is worth a scania truck. My house is worth "1 house".
