From the Publisher
Many books have been written about how to create wealth through positive thinking, and others have claimed to disclose the secrets of how to harness the "energy" of money. But here for the first time, author and researcher Tracy Twyman exposes the occult, alchemical mysteries that lie at the heart of the US dollar, which, as she explains was engineered to become the most powerful currency on Earth. In researching the magic of the dollar, Twyman discovered elements of Freemasonry, Judaica, esoteric Christianity, the lost treasure of King Solomon, and the idol known as Baphomet, worshipped by the Knights Templar. In Solomons Treasure, the author traces the factors behind the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, the Medici dynasty, Italian mercantilism, Enlightenment philosophy, and the birth of the American Republic, demonstrating a hidden thread of continuity throughout. Here Tracy Twyman also explores the religious origins of money in! ancient Rome, Greece, Babylon, Sumer, Egypt and Israel, revealing the secret wisdom of wealth creation that has been passed down from one generation of initiates to another for thousands of years. It was this wisdom which, Twyman states, was utilized by those who have guided American monetary policy, and who have been responsible for designing American currency.
Who knew that exploring the history of money would involve subjects like mummified severed heads used as divine oracles, or sacred prostitution, or demonic pacts, or the superstition surrounding the number thirteen? Who knew that the person responsible for minting the first dollars was a practicing alchemist, or that the dollar sign is in fact an alchemical symbol? Who knew that there was a connection between the coins that filled the coffers of King Solomon's treasury, and the currency produced by the U.S. Department of Treasury? Who knew that those symbols on the dollar bill were not just "Masonic", but actually work together to form a coded message? And who knew that those elusive "secrets of wealth creation" sought by occultists for so long, were in fact right in front of us all along, encoded on the very money we use every day?
From the Author
Have you ever wondered why US dollars are green? Or why they are such a peculiar size and shape, compared to other currencies? Or why, despite objections from secularists, does all US currency contain the words "In God We Trust"? What is the meaning of phrases like "Annuit Coeptis", "Novus Ordo Seclorum", and "E Pluribus Unum", found on the one dollar bill? What are the origins of financial terms like "fiducial", "trust", "credit", and "currency"? When was money invented, and why? In Solomon's Treasure I explore all this and more.

rehash information. There is absolutely nothing new or interesting that hasn't been said much better elsewhere. Do
a Google search and within 10 minutes you get all the facts Twyman drags out to make a book. I made myself read
to the end to find out the usual---Templars and Solomon's Temple, Freemason's and Washington, etc. etc. ad nauseam.
So what's the point? Where's the Magic and how do ordinary people learn to use it? Twyman has no idea. She's just
"fascinated" by the whole subject of money. Right. Who isn't? Her book just adds to the seemingly infinite line of
authors who just keep writing to get published and create a reputation. Sadly, I don't think hers has benefited from
writing this tome. I won't be reading anything else she publishes.
Was struck by the breadth of knowledge and organisation of thought displayed by this author. Splendidly counter-mainstream in its presentation the book relies on self sufficiency & objectivity, good journalism.
Was attracted to the work following a lifetime of interest in currency & monetarism (who doesn't like money?) & a radio interview with Tracy on AM radio and was able to obtain a copy. She speaks very clearly to the faithful nature of money, which has since the publication, proved itself more and more real as we have annointed our economy with more paper dollars, beseeching the pagan gods of lucre to deliver us from our own insanity. She alludes to this idea of inflation as pagan sacrifice.
She gives proper respect to the divine nature of Gold as the preferred material of The Great God Jehovah in the Old Testament of Our Bible. Also we read here an interesting overview of the fate of the gold standard and the faith standard which replaced it; 1933-1971. The faith in credit, greed and corruption is quite ironic for a nation alleged to be civically agnostic, or under the mistaken idea of "separation of church & state".
The book will quite illuminate on several layers and you will likely come away, as I did with the realisation that spending present US currency is nothing short of a religious act.
"IN GOD WE TRVST"
But, the secret is not in turning base metal into gold; the secret is to turn a paper note (with a lot of "magic" symbology) into a representation of wealth that is accepted by everyone.
The success of this trick lies in getting everyone to believe in the magic.
Tracy Twyman explains the way this all works out. You'll think about it every time someone hands you a dollar.
