It was an order which allowed federal agents to break down peoples door under the suspicion of anybody "hoarding" their own property. People were shot while defending their own homes and others were prosecuted and thrown in prison after having their life savings stolen. It was the largest crime the US government ever got away with.

FDR made it illegal to own gold because the Federal Reserve wanted to accelerate their plans to create a fiat-only currency. It took until 1975 to see that happen. And we all know what has been the result.
