Virginia Coin Moves Closer To REALITY

A proposal to study whether Virginia should adopt its own currency passed the state House of Delegates on Monday after gaining support from a number of conservative economists.

Del. Robert G. Marshall (R-Prince William) has been fighting for the bill for three years as a safeguard against what he believes is a central banking system that has swung out of control. But until Monday, the plan seemed little more than a quixotic quest. The House voted 65 to 32 to approve the measure.

“Our nation’s most fundamental principles — equal rights, rule of law, private property rights, individual liberty — still require a dependable dollar to be meaningfully preserved,” the bill reads.

I already have a VA coin; and some banknotes too.

I already have a VA coin, a George Washington penny from 1786. I think its worth $60, mostly collectors' premium. But who knows! If a FRN has lost 94% of its buying power in a century strictly from inflation, maybe a penny from 1786 has a notional value of more than $60.

And I have some banknotes too, State Bank of Virginia, the $5 from 1861 is backed by cotton and $10 from 1863 is backed by "faith in the commonwealth".

Can't imagine what "faith" was worth after the failed invasion of Pennsylvania.

Might as well ask Bernanke, whose FRNs are backed by "faith in himself."

if 3 former Presidents were shot at (some killed) trying to do this very thing, I'd say you're onto something.

Question: does anyone own an old U.S. Treasury Note? I think the last ones were printed in the 60's during JFK, but I can't find didley on the 'net about it.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Lawful Money vs Legal Tender.

First. Vet to Vet, Thank you for your service Myke and Welcome Home.
Molon Labe.

Yes, I have several examples of old notes in my collection.

Some older notes I have are actually not notes, but certificates redeemable in physical silver. Silver Certificates. Silver and gold, lawful money.

Other older paper notes I have are indeed notes, promissory notes. I use these notes to educate others on the difference between Lawful and Legal; as these notes are quite different than today's worthless FRN's. Indeed, these notes were redeemable for something called Lawful Money...which according to the Constitution would be Silver and Gold.

My paper note collection consist of:
Silver Certificates. - formerly redeemable in actual physical silver. Now relegated to merely a collectors item.
Promissory Notes. - formerly redeemable for something called "Lawful Money". Presumably Gold and Silver.
FRN's. - worthless petrodollar redeemable for nothing. Although one may convert FRN's into other denomination FRN's or valueless steel, tin and zinc tokens, they are not redeemable for anything.

Here is what is printed on these notes explaining their value to the holder.

Silver Certificate - "This certifies that there is on deposit in the US Treasury of The United States of America One Dollar in Silver Payable to the Bearer on Demand".

Promissory Notes - "This note is legal tender for all debts public and private, and is redeemable in Lawful Money at the United States Treasury or at any federal reserve bank".

FRN's - "This note is legal tender for all debts public and private".

Silver and Gold is Lawful money.
Silver and Gold Certificates were backed by and redeemable for actual physical deposits of gold and silver.
Promissory Notes represented and were redeemable for Lawful Money. Presumably gold and silver...
FRN's are not Lawful, only legal. Convertable and exchangable for legal goods, yet not redeemable.

Lawful = The Constitution.
Legal. = Corporate Government.

There is a great difference between Lawful and Legal. Lawful trumps legal although legal is always attempting to trump Lawful. These old notes are a great way to see how legal has usurped Lawful.
The Promissory Note appears to have been a buffer to condition us as it contains language both Lawful and Legal, which served to blur the distinct differences of the two terms. Both Certificates and Pr. Notes were in use at the same time over a period pf years. As soon as we were comfortable with the Pr. Notes, they suspended the production and removed from circulation the Certificates.
Shortly thereafter, quietly and with little fanfare; Promissary Notes were swiftly replaced with FRN's.
Within a handful of decades, we went from Lawful to Legal...these actions may be legal, but they are not Lawful. Our tender may be legal, but it is not Lawful. We have been royaly jerked.

I bring up this topic at every chance. Lawful vs. Legal.
Most people always use the term Legal when they should use Lawful.

TPTB wish to replace Lawful with Legal. Lawful Money was first. Lawful Firearms are next. I do not own or carry legal firearms, I Lawfully own and Lawfully carry firearms. Or do I??? Legal tender can only be spent on legal items...legality based on corporate government statutes, codes and regulations. The Law of course refers to inalienable rights granted by the Laws of God and Nature enshrined in our Constitution. I'm just saying that I would be more comfortable if I were able to purchase my Lawful firearms with Lawful Money!

We must insure that Constitutional Law always holds sway and authority over any and all Corporate Government statutes, codes or regulations. Constitutional Law protects and defends our rights and Liberty; legal statutes restrict, diminish and usurp the same.

But I digress. DP readers are some of the smartest folks around and you probably knew all this...but thanks for letting me vent on an issue I am obviously passionate about. :-)

Re: Silver Certificate Date.

Hi Paul,
On the front side you will see printed, SERIES XXXX. The xxxx numbers are the year.
The Certificate in the link is dated 1934 and is dated on both left and right of the front side.
