What was the dispute over the form of National Currency between William Jennings Bryan and William McKinley?
-was it about the Gold standard and coinage of silver?

"The supporters of silver coinage urged the federal government to buy large quantities of silver, issue currency based on it, and put 16 times as much of it in a silver dollar as the amount of gold in a gold dollar."
So Bryan wanted silver to be the nation's currency and not gold?
