Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters!

1. Second Amendment Dollar - on Target!!
I am very pleased to announce that the great Second Amendment has been commemorated with the Second Amendment Dollar. This commemorative is not a currency, as it does not have a face value ($20 is for MSRP only) and is not intended to circulate or compete with the god awful depreciating US dollar. The sole purpose of this commemorative "dollar" is to honor the Second Amendment as an exercise of free political expression as guaranteed by the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

The Second Amendment Dollar was made possible by who contacted Alan McConnell with Silver Liberty Marketing about this exciting new project. Please visit for "Gun Dollars." They are in stock right now for immediate delivery! And if you are a collector, be sure to inquire about the Numbered and Hallmarked editions of this historic issue that will appreciate more than the usual Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) Gun Dollars. Plus if you are looking to protect yourself, family and property has a complete range of firearms, ammo and accessories at terrific prices. Get on target at!

Let it be known that I am not involved in the minting, production or circulation of this historic commemorative "dollar." I was commissioned as an artist only.

Please note that the Second Amendment Dollar is not intended to be used as United States currency and any representation as such is strictly prohibited by law.

2. Guns don't kill people, doctors do!

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000
(B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171
Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services

(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 90,000,000
(B) The total number of accidental gun deaths per year is 1,500
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188
Statistics courtesy of the FBI

Therefore, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners!
Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do!"
Thank God there are only 0.70 million doctors compared to the America's 90 million gun owners!

Unfortunately, not every American has a gun, but almost everybody has at least one doctor. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

3. Two Cases of Simple Theft
While the government's economic whores would have you believe we have "inflation," for many years I have repeatedly said, "There is NO inflation." What we have is simple THEFT of our purchasing power. How could it be simpler? The government dilutes the value of "their" money and we the people suffer. Finally a major investment analyst gets it right. Please click HERE for "You're being ROBBED!" By Larry Edelson.

And remember that $700 billion TARP program to bail out the banks that was deemed "unheard of" and "enormous" at the time? Well now Inspector General Neil Barofsky, the bailout watchdog, expects the vast majority of the $700 billion will not be paid back. And just as the Obummer regime prepares to announce a new TARP-like program for small community banks, Barofsky told CBS's "The Early Show" that because of huge executive bonus payments by the same institutions that benefited from the government bailout, TARP has sown distrust and cynicism among many taxpayers. Barofsky also said in his report that the effort to save the nation's financial sector came at great cost to taxpayers, to the integrity of the financial system and to the public's perception of the federal government. And, "Treasury's actions in this regard have contributed to damage the credibility of the program and of the government itself, and the anger, cynicism and distrust created must be chalked up as one of the substantial, albeit unnecessary, costs of TARP."

4. The Tiny Cabin and our Government
A social worker from Massachusetts recently transferred to the Mountains of North Carolina and was on the first tour of her new territory when she came upon the tiniest cabin she had ever seen in her life. Intrigued, she went up and knocked on the door. "Anybody home?" she asked. "Yep," came a kid's voice through the door.

"Is your father there?" asked the social worker. "Pa? Nope, he left afore Ma came in." said the kid. "Well, is your mother there?" persisted the social worker. "Ma? Nope, she left just afore I got here." said the kid. "But," protested the social worker, "Are you never together as a family?" "Sure, but not here." said the kid through the door. "This is the outhouse!"

Aren't you overjoyed that the government will soon be handling all your financial, educational and medical problems?

5. Bernard Interviewed on Reality Report TV
A Special Edition of Reality Report featured an in-studio interview of Bernard von NotHaus, Monetary Architect of the Liberty Dollar, and Gary Franchi who discussed the origins of the Liberty Dollar, the pending legal battle, the raid on the Liberty Dollar offices and the state of country's money. Click HERE for the interview.

Please note that although the interview is dated October 27, the day the interview was posted. The Interview was actually shot in May, long before I was arrested.

6. Hawaii's 50th Anniversary Commemorative
Due to legal circumstances beyond my control I have been forced to not use the $50 denomination and Hawaii Dala on the reverse of the commemorative for the 50th Anniversary of the 50th State of Hawaii. I find this detestable. Please note that the 2009 Hawaii Commemorative is not intended to be used as United States currency and any representation as such is strictly prohibited by law.

With that disclaimer said, I hope you would still support this valiant effort to commemorate Hawaii with this most bizarre mule. Please note if you are not familiar with the numismatic term MULE, it is the item when two unrelated dies are use to produce a new and often, unusual third specimen. Such is the case with the 2009 Hawaii Commemorative. With little time or money before the end of the year, I was lucky to find the original 1993 die used on the original one ounce silver "Hawaii Sovereign." This ground-breaking issue was introduced as a companion to the Overthrow Dala that commemorated, not celebrated, the 100th anniversary of the Overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1893. The 1993 Hawaii Sovereign was the very first time the famous Kamehameha statue was issued by the Mint in Hawaii. Please note the reverse die is badly warn but the great design is still there and features the State motto in Hawaiian.: "The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness." In fact the whole reverse is in Hawaiian.

The obverse of the 2009 Hawaii Sovereign features King Kamehameha in "ultra high relief" (UHR). If you are not familiar with UHR then just know that the die has been cut to the utmost depth and in a special way so that the detail is not only "ultra high relief" the commemorative is amazingly clear with great definition of detail. Of course the easiest way to appreciate UHR is to compare it to any government coinage except the recently issued US Mint $20 Gold UHR, that proves that the government mint can do great work.

Even though the new amended terms of my Appearance Bond does not bar me from doing commemoratives, it seemed best at this time that I am not involved in this important issue. Please mail your order with payment to: Silver Liberty Marketing, POB 2105, Indianapolis IN, 46206 as SLM does not have a merchant account and cannot accept orders online.

2009 Hawaii Sovereign for Hawaii's 50th Anniversary is available in three issues. All three issues are expected to be very small and most likely will be less than 50 pieces so there is not maximum order… just hope to hear from you.

BRILLIANT UNCIRCULATED ISSUE: The ultra high relief (UHR) 2009 Hawaii Sovereign with Kamehameha the Great contains one full ounce of .999 fine silver minted in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition and measures 39 mm in diameter with a reeded edge. Every Sovereign is in Proof-like condition and packaged in a capsule for $35 each. Please note prices are subject to change.

FIRST DAY OF ISSUE of the UHR 2009 Hawaii Sovereign with Kamehameha is available with a hand stamped Hallmark of the Hawaiian Islands. The hallmark of the Hawaiian Islands is individually hand stamped on the reverse of each FDI so every stamp is different and may not be complete, which is part of the collectibility of the First Day of Issue for $45 each.

LIMITED NUMBERED ISSUE is limited to a maximum of only 100 UHR Kamehameha Sovereign is also available. The best specimens have been cherry picked and individually hand numbered. All numbered Hawaii Sovereigns will also include the special micro hallmark of the Hawaiian Islands. The Limited Numbered Issue is strictly limited to only 100 numbered Sovereigns for $65 each.

Thanks again for your support during these very trying times.

7. Organic Gold Standard
Back in 2003, in those good ol' days of the legendary Liberty Dollar, we commemorated the Fifth Anniversary with my 500 page tome, "Liberty Dollar SOLUTION to the Federal Reserve." Oh, life was simple back then. And while the book covers many of the problems and the sole Liberty Dollar solution, I have found very few people who ever read my thesis: "Organic Gold Standard." Now with gold on the rise, a new global currency being bantered about that confirms the world continues to move through the painful experience of "returning to a value based currency," it is time for the new Organic Gold Standard.

I am deeply indebted to my friend, fellow monetarist and noted economist Dr. Richard H. Timberlake who contributed to my book and said:

"Gold standards were put in place by governments, and, in all but a very few cases, they have been managed by governments. A gold standard, especially 'the' gold standard is administered by a Treasury or central bank, is an illusory solution to monetary mischief. It would be just as subject to government tampering as any other institution managed by the state. Many statist central bankers, in fact, embrace a 'gold standard' because it serves as a respectable cover for their traditional hands-on control. No, no, no 'gold standard,' please!"

Please click HERE for the Organic Gold Standard or dig out my book and read Chapter 27, page 237. OGS is only seven pages.

8. Liberty Dollar Model Moves Up
I am pleased to announce that the 30 day moving average (30DMA) for silver was $16.00 on October 1, 2009, the 11th anniversary of Liberty Dollar. Now, 30 days later, the Liberty Dollar model has Moved Up to the $50 Silver Base. This is the second time the Liberty Dollar Moved Up as it had previously Moved Up to the $50, and then Moved Down to the $20 Silver Base in response to market conditions. And while a 45-day duration requirement was required for Liberty Dollar to Move Up the first time, only 30 days was required to return to the $50 Silver Base. So it came to pass that the Liberty Dollar Moved Up on Aloha Friday, October 30, 2009 with the 30DMA at $17.04.

Now, because of the Liberty Dollar's current legal problems and the government seizure of so many people's money, this Move Up may not be of much interest, except for the other currencies based on the Liberty Dollar model, but it is still noteworthy and will be of particular interest after the Liberty Dollar Four are acquitted.J Please continue to support your favorite currency, while the Liberty Dollar continues to plow new ground for America's eventual return to an honest and value based monetary system.

Amendment LDM-1:
Now that the Liberty Dollar Model is using a "market" price model versus a "currency" price model, I hereby acknowledge that the Move Down mechanism is not necessary. In the future, once a new Silver Base has been reached at the specified 30DMA and for the time duration required to Move Up, the Liberty Dollar model will not Move Down.

Amendment LDM-2:
Now with eleven years of currency modeling, two Move Ups and one Move Down, I hereby move to simplify the Move Up points to be 85% of the current Silver Base. Currently, the Liberty Dollar Model specifies the Liberty Dollar currency to Move Up to the face value (MSRP) of $100 is when the 30DMA reaches or exceeds $41.50? for 60 consecutive calendar days. The amended Move Up point to the $100 Silver Base would be $42.50 (85% of the $50 Silver Base) and occur when that 30DMA rate is maintained for 60 consecutive calendar days. The Move Up to the $250 Silver Base would change from the current 30DMA of $84.00 to $85.00 (85% of the $100 Silver Base) with a 75-day duration. And the Move Up point to the $500 Silver Base would change from $211.50 to $212.50 (85% of $250) with a duration of 90 consecutive calendar days.

The "duration" time from the old base to the new base continues to be enlarged by 15 days for each Move Up to facilitate increased volatility from high silver prices. For example, the Move Up from the $10 Silver Base to the $20 was 30 days, the Move Up from the $20 to the $50 Silver Base was 45 days and the duration from the $50 to the $100 Silver Base requires a 60-day duration. God help us after that!

Original info on rates and formulas is at:

My thanks to Ray Ubinger, a staunch supporter of the Liberty Dollar, who reports that the 30DMA for silver has been constantly increasing, every single business day, since July 31 when it was $13.51. The 30DMA broke $17 ($17.01) on Tuesday, September 20 and hit a high of $17.28 on August 18. It has since moved down as silver retracted and finished the 30 day period on October 30th at $17.04?.

9. Liberty Gold + Card
I regret to inform you that difficulties have befallen Liberty Gold and its super MasterCard® program. Currently the system is under review and revision. I will gladly inform you of its successes as soon as possible. If you deposited any money into Liberty Gold, you should have received an email informing you of this development and that all your money, less the $39 for the card, will be refunded to you at the current gold rate. Please keep your card, as it is still viable and will be even more valuable when it is reconnected to your Liberty Gold account. Thank you for your interest in this leading edge program.

10. Legal Update on TEA Dollar Motion
Unfortunately, Magistrate Judge David S. Cayer, the lowest judge in the Federal judicial system, has responded to our Motion to clarify his original Oral Order to fill the TEA Party Dollars by issuing an Amended Order that states:

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that defendant's conditions of release are AMENDED to prohibit Defendant from minting or producing any coinage or currency and from circulating any coinage or currency that has not been produced by the United States Mint.

We think the Judge is in error as our Motion was based on the First Amendment that protects "political expression" and nothing could be more expressive than the TEA (acronym for Taxed Enough Already) Dollar. An appeal to District Court Judge Richard Voorhees is planned, as we remain dedicated to filling your Tea Party Dollars ASAP. Unfortunately, we cannot refund your money as your money is tied up in the product. Fortunately, if inflation strikes while this issue winds its way through the judicial system, your value is protected in copper. Unfortunately, through no fault of your own, you have been deprived of your property without legal recourse. And that is very wrong! My apologies for this gross inconvenience of your God given right that is protected and guaranteed by the First Amendment. Please click HERE for the Amended Order. (Tim please add link to the Amended Order.)

Closing Remarks:
Ooops!!! A correction: October 1, 2009 was Liberty Dollar's 11th Anniversary. It was incorrectly reported as the 12th anniversary in the previous newsletter while it just seems like the 12th or maybe the 112th! Actually, the original draft referenced that the Liberty Dollar was starting its 12th year and then late one night that became the 12th Anniversary. My apology for this misinformation.

Regardless of the anniversary, it is amazing that the Liberty Dollar is still alive and fighting for your right to protect your purchasing power from the thieving government money that constantly loses purchasing power. We are also fighting for your wrongfully seized property! Damnit, if the !@#@! government would just do what it is supposed to do - which is damn little - I could get back on the beach in Hawaii!

Thank you for your continued support and much patience. 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 for all your efforts to return America to value - one Liberty Dollar at a time!
