Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters:

Liberty Dollar more popular than the US Mint
Every January, Coin World, the world's largest numismatic publication, publishes a list of the Top Ten most popular articles, i.e. the most read articles, during the previous year. In the past, the list was determined by the editors simply remembering how many calls or letters they received to determine popularity. Coin World changed the methodology for the 2014 popularity contest and used the metrics of online readership to more accurately determine the list of the Top Ten articles.

I am very pleased to report that your Liberty Dollar was listed in Coin World's Top Ten articles for 2015. Liberty Dollar article was the second most read article and beat out the US Mint that was in fourth place! And of course this was not based on padding by Liberty Dollar readers or supporters, but by the general worldwide readership of Coin World.

WOW, with such reader interest, sometimes I think that there is hope for American and its seriously flawed monetary system. The article also included a paragraph about the Liberty Dollar and even mentioned me. Please click HERE for the list of the Top Ten stories for 2015.

The amazing interest and staying power of the Liberty Dollar that has not been issued since 2009 when I was arrested is simply amazing! It certainly says a lot about the coin and metals market and is underscored by the Coin World article that states that "a strong anti-government bias exists in such cases, with many readers feeling that the government has no business confiscating the coins."

Please note that the Liberty Dollar was never anti-government. The Liberty Dollar was anti-government money. In fact it remains anti any money that is not backed by portable redeemable value established in the free market. Such money has most often been gold and silver and a monetary system in keeping with the principles of the School of Free Banking as defined by Drs. Friedrich Hayek, Richard Timberlake, Kevin Dowd, Larry White, George Selgin, Steven Horwitz and a growing list of well-informed monetary economists. If you are interested in the birth of private mints and private money, Good Money by George Selgin is a terrific read.

Please note: I am personally anti-FBI tyranny. Who investigated 911? The FBI. Who investigated TWA 800? The FBI. Who investigated Oklahoma Bombing? The FBI. Who was the shooter at Ruby Ridge? The FBI. Who attacked Waco? The FBI. Who falsified the most criminal lab reports? The FBI. Who raided Liberty Dollar? The FBI. Who wrote the Press Release long before BVNH came to trial? The FBI. Where is that fraudulent press release still posted? At the FBI site. The FBI is the dark side of the US government. The FBI should not respected but feared.

Petition Update and the return of your property
I am very pleased to confirm that the government has made great strides with the hundreds of petitions to return your property. Unfortunately there are a few misguided petitioners who have stalled the process and the return of everybody's property as all the property will be returned at one time, which actually makes sense due to the volume and complexity of such a large forfeiture case. I am continuously working to resolve the issues and will continue to do so until everybody's property is returned.

Huge FUN Coin Show in Tampa
In celebration of my release from probation I visited the huge Florida United Numismatic (FUN) Coin Show in Tampa recently. It was a hoot. I had the opportunity to meet a lot of old friends but missed too many due to a tight schedule.

Probation Certificate
Much to my surprise, when you complete probation, you get a Certificate:)! So on this happy occasion, I wish to acknowledge the many outstanding Probation Officers who supervised my case. Only the PO in Hawaii was terrible but most fittingly, my last Probation Officer was the best. Thanks Erin for personally delivering my Probation Certificate.

Thanks for the flood of Replies

The last Liberty Dollar Alert generated ten times the number of replies than any Newsletter in a long time. Your support during these difficult times has been greatly appreciated. Words cannot express my sincere appreciation for all of you who took a stand for a value based currency and supported the Liberty Dollar. My heart goes out to those who have been harmed or not lived long enough to enjoy the blessings of their activism.

Many thanks for your staunch support for the Liberty Dollar and the ideals it represented!
