BRIEFLY

Congress sent Reagan a bill to allow gold coins.

December 03, 1985

The bill, which would authorize the minting and sale of general circulation gold coins for the first time in 53 years, was approved by the House on a voice vote. The Senate passed it on Nov. 14. The measure provides for four gold coins, in denominations of $50, $25, $10 and $5. The selling prices would fluctuate with the gold market and would not be tied to the dollar designation on the coins, which would go on sale Oct. 1, 1986.
