It is very simple.
When the government seized the constitutional money in 1933 an oz of gold was $20 per 1oz coin. When the government seized the gold coin and replaced it with fiat currency the person forced to turn in the gold coin was given approx $20.35 in printed money backed by the individuals promise to perform. BTW, after the government seized our constitutional money it then raised the price of gold to $35 per oz, this devalued the fiat replacement dollar by about 60%. The people lost again.
Now if a person turns in 1 million dollars of fiat currency it can be converted to U.S. gold coin with a gold price set by congress as stated in our constitution. So if congress sets the price of gold at $100 U.S. dollars per oz the person would receive 1000 1oz gold pieces. The U.S. and world markets will adjust, as long as we do not institute fractional reserve banking to a ridiculous degree our economy will soar.
Trying to continue a broken fiat currency model is ignorant. The people always lose when we allow the bankers to regulate interest rates, this is hidden inflation that cost the people dearly. With a fixed assest based currency the people retain control of the value of it's currency, NOT THE BANKS!
