Welcome Liberty Dollar Supporters!

1. Tea Party Dollar Is Late
The good news is the Tea Party Dollars are in the USA but the bad news is that they are stuck in Customs and you will not receive them in time for the Fourth of July. Bummer!

Of course, we will ship them immediately upon receipt. But given that we have 48,000 to ship, we can't ship them all the same day! Trust me we will ship them ASAP.


The good news is that the copper $1 Tea Party Dollar will be by far the best looking, best minted copper dollars to date because the dies were made in USA. Unfortunately the die shop was back-logged, so replacing the broken dies has further delayed the balance of copper Tea Party Dollar.

The balance of 52,000 T-Dollars are scheduled to be minted very soon and will ship ASAP. We anticipate shipping all orders by late September. In spite of these problems, we remain determined to provide the best $1 Tea Party Dollar for its worthwhile mission. Thanks again for your patience. Please stay tuned to the LDN for updates.

PS: We just received the Tea Party Dollar Flag! And it is TERRIFIC. If you ordered more than 100 T-Dollars and are due a flag or two as part of that order… we have mailed a flag to you for the Fourth of July party. Your order of copper T-Dollars will follow ASAP.

2. Cancelled Orders & Silver Orders
YES, we understand that three months is a long time to wait for your copper order. But that is simply the nature of having a ONE DOLLAR item made outside the USA. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL COPPER ORDERS ARE PRE-ORDERS. If you can't or don't wish to wait, please DON'T place a pre-order.





Meanwhile, I am very pleased to report that the bad times and delays for one ounce Silver Libertys are over. While the last batch of Libertys was terrible, the new Mint has since resolved their manufacturing problems. The supply tube will be full very shortly and immediate shipping will resume again. I apologize for the problem orders.

2009 Trial Dollar

4. New Trial Dollar for the cost of a regular $20 Silver Liberty
For long time readers, you may recall that we issued a very special $20 Defense Dollar (DD) with a hand stamped hallmark of the Scales of Justice and my federally registered Mintmark. The DD was available from September 14, 2006, when the US Mint issued their !@#$#@! warning until the FBI raid on November 14, 2007. The $20 Defense Dollar was initially issued for $30 and the extra $10 went toward our legal defense fund. The DD is now selling for $85 on Ebay! Somehow everybody made more than we did!

Then after the FBI raid, we issued a very special $20 Arrest Dollar (AD) with hand stamped hallmark of Handcuffs and my federally registered Mintmark. The AD was available from November 15, 2007, the day after the FBI raided Liberty Dollar, until my arrest, June 4, 2009. The $20 Arrest Dollar was initially issued for $40 and the extra $20 went toward our legal defense. The AD is already $55 and going up in the secondary market.

Now that I have been arrested, it is my "pleasure" to announce a very special $20 Trial Dollar (TD) that will be available until the Liberty Dollar Four are acquitted. Of course the purpose of the Trial Dollar is to raise funds for our trial because we still have to pay our own transportation and lodging costs even though the Federal government is funding our defense.

The Trial Dollar consists of a $20 Silver Liberty, a "Trial" hallmark with a gavel as the "T" and "RIAL" and my Mintmark for $50 each. Click HERE for an image. But if you order 6 or more Silver Libertys, Peace and/or Freedom Dollars we will include a Trial Dollar as one of the Dollars that you order. That way you get a Trial Dollar for the cost of a regular $20 Silver Liberty! And yes you can place multiple orders! You can also order the Trial Dollar separately for $50 each. This offer is good until the silver market ticks up and Liberty Dollar Moves Up to the $50 Silver Base or we announce the end of this Special Offer. Please note all bullion priced Liberty, Peace and Freedom Dollars are brilliant uncirculated (BU) condition. They are not proofs.

Quite frankly, there couldn't be a better time to pick up some silver. Look at the price! The Summer Slows/Summer Lows are upon us again. NOW is the time to order. Help yourself to low prices and contribute to the legal defense for Liberty Dollar. Don't let yourself be ripped off by a depreciating currency!

Please click HERE to order the new Trial Dollar for $50 or place an order for 6 or more Silver Libertys, Peace and/or Freedom Dollars and get one of the $20 Silver Libertys that you order a Trial Dollar and save more than $30!!!

5. Free Shipping on All Shopping Cart Orders
Just a quick reminder that all orders for $20 Silver Libertys placed on our shopping cart are shipped FREE.

6. Insurance Company Buys Gold

Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. Holds $400 Million in Gold

Gold got a significant endorsement today from one of the world's largest insurance companies.

Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co., the third-largest life insurer in the United States, has bought gold for the first time in the company's 152-year history to hedge against continued declines in other asset classes.

The insurance giant has accumulated about $400 million in gold over the past several months. Northwestern Mutual Chief Executive Officer Edward Zore was quoted in Bloomberg saying, "Gold just seems to make sense; it's a store of value... The downside risk is limited, but the upside is large. We have stocks in our portfolio that lost 95 percent." Gold "is not going down to $90."

The move may prompt other insurance companies to follow suit. It makes sense for insurance companies to hold gold since gold is always an asset and can never be considered a liability.

7. California Collapsing
If you have not read this article by my friend Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D., please read it and consider your own state, family and business. Please click HERE for the California Collapsing article.

8. Anguilla Liberty Dollar!
While most of us, including myself may think the Liberty Dollar is an original name, to my amazement it was used by Scott Newhall, the editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, in 1969! Click HERE for an early use of the "Liberty Dollar" name.

9. Numismatic Lists
While the Liberty Dollar does not market itself as a numismatic item… it sure is! In 1998, Liberty Dollar's first year of issue, the $10 Liberty was only $7.50. Now it is $600 to $900 on eBay! And the highest auction on eBay for the 1999, our second year of issue, was a cool $1000!!! Over the past 11 years there has been about 100 different Liberty Dollars issued in platinum, gold, silver and copper. And while the government would have you believe such BS that they are all fraudulent counterfeits meant to undermine the US dollar, an increasing number of savvy collectors are jumping on the bandwagon and scoring! One of the most devout collector/dealers is Ron Goodger, who has developed an exclusive website for Liberty Dollar numismatists. For more info please visit: Or click HERE for additional info and a complete pricelist by another collector. Please note Liberty Dollar does not profit from any of these offers or sales and does not acknowledge the info is complete or accurate. Personally, I look forward to having the time to review the issues, mintages, prices and publish a complete history in a catalog with quality photos. Don't hold your breath.

10. Legal Update - Free the "Liberty Dollar Four"
The awful truth is that a "federal case" takes a lot of time! Currently, Sarah, Rachelle and I are scheduled to appear at 9:30 in US District Court in Charlotte, NC, on July 6. You are welcome to come but most likely it will be boring as our attorneys will request a continuance of six months to prepare our case. So the trial will be scheduled for December, but with pre-trial motions, etc., it could easily be pushed back to February or March or even later. Eventually, the trial will drag on for a month to six months. Most interestingly, as our case winds its way through the federal labyrinth, our great country will slide into a black hole a la the California Collapse and gold and silver will explode. What a terrible time for our great country!

The worst case has befallen William (Kevin) Innes. According to the government, Kevin is a Canadian who has been in the United States illegally for ten years, so he is considered a "flight risk" and will not be released. That means he may have to spend six to eight months waiting for the trail in County Jail! With the poorly educated guards, over crowded cells, bad food, little exercise and nothing to do, county jail is the absolute worst place!

Meanwhile, an immigration attorney has agreed to visit Kevin and review his case to see if it was possible to get Kevin out, for $500. We have started a special $500 fund just for Kevin's immigration attorney. It already has $180 in it. Please send $5, $10 or $20 to get Kevin out. Just make the check out to Liberty Dollar, mention that it is for Kevin and mail it to: Liberty Dollar, 225 N. Stockwell Road, Evansville. IN. 47715. As soon as we raise the $500, we will retain the immigration attorney to visit Kevin and hopefully get him out. I know that Kevin would greatly appreciate your support. I know I would! Thank you in advance for your support.

Unfortunately, the info published earlier to send money to Kevin's jail account was wrong. If you wish to mail money to Kevin, it must be a money order and include his NAME, PID# and DOB: WILLIAM INNES, PID 377054, 09-03-55.

Meanwhile, after EIGHT MONTHS the government has filed their reply to the group of claimants who filed a Rule 41g Motion for return of the wrongfully seized platinum, gold, silver and copper almost eight months ago! YES, you read that right… EIGHT MONTHS! Simply stalling! It is !@#$#@! for the government to take people's property and not answer the complaint for eight months! And how did they reply? They want more time to tie the seized property to the criminal complaint! Of course we will reply with the strongest language possible. Click HERE for the gov reply to the Claimants and HERE for Memorandum in Support.

The gov also replied to my pro se Rule 41g Motion for recovery of all the material seized that was not covered by the Search Warrant. And guess what? They want more time too! Click HERE for the gov reply to my pro se Motion.

Like Will Rogers said, "Thank god we don't get all the government we pay for."

SERIOUSLY, we need to raise some money for Bernard, Sarah, and Rachelle to get to Charlotte and WIN! As I mentioned, the government is paying for our defense, but we have to pay transportation to Charlotte plus hotel, food and miscellaneous expenses that we were not aware of. Just ordering some Liberty Dollar helps. Getting some Trial Dollar is even better… we actually make a couple dollars on those orders.J Whatever you choose to order, your support is greatly appreciated!

Closing Remarks:
Here is a very telling quote from an internal staff meeting by William Casey, Director of the CIA in 1981: "We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false."

And if you still have time on your hands, here is a recent article that appeared on the front page of the business section of the Evansville Courier & Press: "Despite arrests, some local merchants still accepting Liberty Dollars" Unfortunately, you cannot see the nearly half page photo of the Liberty Dollar! Huge and wonderful!

Many thanks for your continued support. For it is only by banding together and adopting a free and independent currency that provides us with "just weights and measures" will we be able to throw off the yoke of a manipulated monetary/tax system and generate a peaceful and prosperous society.

Thank you again for all your efforts to return America to value - one dollar at a time!
