Gold Is Money

And silver of course.  Bankers hate silver because it’s much more plentiful and cheap (and thus difficult to control) but still very functional as a medium of exchange.  But the problem isn’t that the dollar is fiat money.  Money is whatever people accept as payment for goods and services.  In that sense gold is as fiat as a dollar bill, neither having any intrinsic value in industry or energy generation or whatever.  The problem is that dollars represent public debt to concentrations of wealth.  See monetary.org
