    Gold Value Historically

    I was watching this video on the creation of the Federal Reserve. => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lu_VqX6J93k Somewhere in the lecture he says that the actual value of gold hasn't changed in 2 thousand years or more. A roman could buy a nice suit of clothes and sandals for an ounce of gold. And today someone could buy a very nice business suit and shoes for the same ounce. I'm not sure of the price comparison there. So, I guess to put it in simpler terms, with 1/10 oz of gold you can take 4 people out to dinner, figuring about $130. So let's say in 1890, could a person also buy dinner for 4 with a 1/10 gold piece? With paper currency, inflation has stripped the value of money. Not sure if this also applies to silver value over the years.
