Jekyll Island One Ounce Silver Medallion Round
On November 22, 1910, an elite group of bankers and politicians gathered in J.P. Morgan's private estate on Jekyll Island, off the coast of Georgia, to seize control of the world's monetary system in an elaborate ruse known as the "duck hunt."
Speaking of sport and carrying shotguns to ward off any suspicion, the dark figures covertly met in Senator Nelson Aldrich's private railway car in New Jersey. A number of reporters had arrived to gather the scoop, but mysteriously disappeared after J.P. Morgan & Co. partner Henry P. Davison spoke to the station master. The train departed traveling to the Brunswick train station, where the men boarded a boat and embarked to Jekyll Island.
The Jekyll Island conference provided a cover for the world's most powerful bankers and corrupt US politicians to pave the way for a private central bank in America. Three years later on Christmas eve, 1913, when congress was in recess, a group of illegally elected politicians passed what was known as the Aldrich Plan setting up the Federal Reserve, a private banking entity with the power to legally tender American currency.
The Jekyll Island medallion is an eery reminder of the insidious conception of the Federal Reserve. Standing in front of J.P. Morgan's estate, the three figures represent the architects of debt: Paul Warburg of the Rothschild family, Senator Nelson Aldrich, and J.P. Morgan himself.
