Gold Standard Corporation – 1977 to 1993

Conrad J. Braun founded the Gold Standard Corporation in Kansas City, Missouri in 1977. Gold Standard Corporation is well known for the gold, silver and platinum coins produced that were denominated in Braun’s own contrived denomination, The Gold Standard Unit.

Conrad J. Braun endured many tribulations during his lifetime and his effort to introduce an alternate means of value to the House of Representatives was not well received. His company closed operations in spring of 1993.

This series 1 variety of Gold Standard bar demonstrates a pebbled finish on the reverse, while the more common series 2 variant demonstrates a mirrored reverse finish.
