1. From the CEO's Desk - A crazy wild west stagecoach run
with 25,000 oz of silver from the Idaho panhandle to Southern California
Have I got a story to tell you! Bernard and I are working on a project to allow
Liberty Dollar to operate with minimal supply delays that are plaguing the Silver
dealers. Our goal is to be able to ship within three days after payment is received.
As part of this project, we worked with a number of Liberty Dollar supporters
to create an inventory to more quickly replenish the Silver Libertys you order.
January started out with a top secret run from Sunshine Mint in the Idaho panhandle
all the way to Southern California. I bribed my dad with a 1 oz gold liberty
to do a road trip with me the week after the new year. So like a trouper he
showed up in Sacramento with his one-ton pickup and we drove to Portland on
Day One and then on to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho for an early morning pickup of 25,000
ounces of silver at the Sunshine Mint.
It was snowing and cold. See my picture next to the truck in the snow. The
blue tarp on the back is covering twenty-five 1,000 ounce bars of silver. By
the way, 25,000 ounces is almost 1800 lbs. 25 thousand ounce bars of silver
really aren't that big but the truck definitely settled when the forklift sat
the pallet on the truck bed. We then began the straight-through trek from Coeur
d'Alene to southern California -- a journey of 1400+ miles and over 20 hours.
The first hour was white knuckle tense as we looked over our shoulders and checked
the rearview mirrors, regularly wondering if the word somehow got out about
our silver run. But after an hour we realized that no one was following us and
settled in to a long trip south, running ahead of a snowstorm until Portland,
Oregon. Twenty four hours later we delivered the silver to the new mint with
a sigh of relief.
2. Order the New 2009 Silver Liberty Now
The 2009 $20 one ounce Silver Liberty continues to improve its design to eliminate
any possible confusion with the addition of: PVBC acronym for "private
voluntary barter currency" and MSRP acronym for "Manufacturers Suggested
Retail Price" to define the face value. "Inflation Proof Silver"
and NFV for "Nominal Face Value" have also been added to the reverse.

3. Success story - Gold Fever in Pismo Beach
Anne, a friend of mine and a recent convert to Liberty Dollar received a quarter
ounce $500 Gold Liberty in exchange for her consulting services in Pismo Beach,
California. She had wanted to keep the Liberty but as the month drew to a close
she needed to pay her office rent. She began a quest to exchange her Gold Liberty
and had conversations with the local coin shop (he was clueless). She then called
an Associate she knew and he offered her $400. Then she showed it to the building
manager who agreed to show it to the landlord. Well, once the building manager
had the Liberty he didn't want to release it and bought it from Anne for $475.
She had so much fun and met so many new people that she is convinced that bartering
with Liberty Dollars are absolutely the way to go. Who knows? We may have the
seeds of a community currency planted in Pismo Beach!
4. 2009 $1 Peace Dollar ships
The Peace Dollars have arrived and we have shipped over 15,000 of the 30,000.
They are already selling on eBay for $8.00. The Limited Numbered and First Day
of Issue with the hand punched hallmark are SOLD OUT! Luck you if you got some
of these at the unbelievable introductory prices. As soon as we can get some,
we will make them available at secondary market prices. Once we have shipped
all the General Issues out the door we will offer a new copper Liberty Dollar
issue. Stay tuned for that announcement.
5. Gideon Gono, Head of the Zimbabwean Central Bank to Advise
the Obama Administration
You may have heard that Zimbabwe recently knocked 12 zeroes off their currency.

for a great spoof about Gono the king of hyperinflation in Zimbabwe advising
the Obama administration: Well, maybe it's not a spoof. Could hyperinflation
be just around the corner for the USA?
6. The Future of Money?
River City Reader article details Liberty Dollar
In the Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, area, you can walk around with coins in your
pocket that can be exchanged for goods and services at more than five dozen
merchants. They say "Liberty" and "Trust in God" on the
front, and on the back they claim a value of $20 or $50. They're made of silver,
and they are neither produced nor endorsed by the federal government. In Fairfield,
Iowa, those same coins are accepted at more than 15 merchants
