Liberty Dollar, Bernard von NotHaus & APMEX

First off, this is not an ad for APMEX or any such thing. Just something I find interesting.

Those that followed the case vrs Bernard von NotHaus and the Liberty dollar are familiar with the terms of the case.

Just today I get an ad from APMEX and the product advertised seems to be support for NotHaus. If so, it is a nice use of the free market to attack the fallacious case vrs NotHaus.

Here is the APMEX link, replace XX with TT

I got an email from APMEX

Advertising their new fractional medallions. They look strikingly (no pun intended) like previous US silver coins but simply do not carry any denomination in dollars, cents, etc. Bernard von Nuthaus was busted for striking his specie with a dollar denomination, NOT because the Liberty Dollar was wrong, bad, or anything like that. He just had a mechanism to allow his specie to adjust in value against the spot price of the metals. Since the FED has taken to printing so many new dollars, this was actually a fairly novel approach to allow the LD to retain it's buying power based on the perceived value of the dollar. WATCH, this will become a reality if/when we return to a "gold standard"!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.

I'd like to see them do this

I'd like to see them do this with gold coins. I know they have the fractional gold series already, but I'd like to see the pre-1933 designs on them like what they've done with the silver coins.

Gold and silver are still so cheap that I'm buying full ounces and bars. I'll go after the fractional stuff when the price gets out of hand for the ounces.

Cuimhnigh orm, a Dhia, le haghaidh maith.

I was wondering the same thing

the only thing I could think of is Bernard used the word "dollar" on his coins and warehouse receipts. It's a shame...I really liked the warehouse receipts knowing they were backed and redeemable in silver.

We Could Make This The New Standard Money for Libertarians!

Looks good, the back doesn't say anything about UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, a registered trademark belonging to the now foreign owned private U.S. Government Corp. That means no infringement on their trademarked name.

Bernard Von NotHaus got himself in trouble by using the British Crown's trademarked name. APMEX just used their own name! Forget the U.S. Mint, coin minting should not ever be done by government. That just invites the government to be taken over by banksters who will then control the mint like they do today.

Let the free market choose the favorite design and standards for coins. The Dollar originated from a private mint and became the standard by which all other coins were judged. No reason why APMEX Liberty coins or perhaps another competing mint shouldn't set the New Dollar Standard.

Vote yourself out of the foreign owned U.S. Government by exchanging their debt for real money.

The Oracle

Funny how things happen:

I was just looking at them on the APMEX web site and the very same thoughts occurred to me.
Why is it that some one can make a coin so closely resembling the originals, and some one else can't even make one that is obviously not?

I love my country
I am appalled by my government
