The 1980 high adusted for “real” inflation is $6,255 an ounce

The "Real" Gold Price

An example will be useful to illustrate this loss of purchasing power. Let’s assume that a recipient received $850 per month from the US government in January 1980.

This difference can be seen in the following chart, which presents the January $850 gold price adjusted for inflation using both CPI’s.
