    Hide Your Liberty Dollars, Secret Service Is Coming to Confiscate!

    You may remember Bernard von NotHaus, purveyor of the gold/silver backed “Liberty Dollar,” who was convicted of making, possessing, and selling his own coins, as well as conspiracy against the United States. The lead attorney on the case made it a point to refer to Mr. NotHaus’ dealing as a special form of domestic terrorism.

    Since the coins NotHaus was selling have been deemed to violate Federal counterfeiting statutes, they are now considered contraband by the US Attorney and Secret Service. Coin World explains:

    Liberty Dollars held by collectors may be subject to seizure as contraband by federal law enforcement, officials with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and Secret Service said Aug. 24.

    Statements by officials for those two federal law enforcement agencies seem to reverse the position taken in comments released from the United States Attorney’s Office in Charlotte, N.C., and published in Coin World in April, that mere possession of Liberty Dollars did not constitute a violation of any federal statute.

    That position has apparently changed, although officials of the U.S. Secret Service — which would be the federal agency likely charged with executing any possible seizures — would not provide any definitive comments concerning under what circumstances Liberty Dollars would be seized.

    Kessler [Secret Service Representative] could not provide a blanket position the Secret Service would take toward those owning Liberty Dollars, whether one piece or significantly more.

    He said if a Secret Service agent witnessed something considered to be contraband, such as Liberty Dollars, they would be duty-bound to confiscate it.

    If VonHaus was considered a domestic terrorist for violating counterfeiting statutes, you can be assured that those who purchased these silver and gold coins will now be classified as the same, because trading these coins in any capacity will in itself be an act of knowingly passing counterfeit currency.

    If you’ve got any of these coins in your possession, chances are that the US government knows who you are and where you live. While no confiscation policy has been overtly applied to owners of the coins, we can be assured that if the government has the opportunity to do so, they will take everything they can, just as they did with $70 million in double eagle gold coins seized from Langbord family.

    Our advice to concerned terrorists in possession of these coins is to either get a shovel, get them out of the United States (and even then you may not be safe under international treaties), or head to a smelter.

        • Manos, while some might laugh at your suggestions, I certainly think you’re on the right track. [Direct] water and air taxes are coming.. right now they are hiding them indirectly. Property… the banks are going to take care of that for them, and then the Fed will just buy up the “toxic” mortgages and own the land. And while we don’t have a draft in the US anymore, it’s only a matter of time before they force our children into government service like they do in certain parts of Europe.

          Crazy — but it’s the way the world is going!

            A new political model is on the rise: Banking socialism.
            Everything will be owned by the banks, and the millions of ants will work in slave terms.
            If you work all day long there is no spare time for you.
            If there is no spare time, you cannot think and read.
            If you cannot think, there is no way you wake up.
            That’s why they are about to implement a new education model. Parents will have no time for their kids , so slowly they will pass to the government control.
            I know some will laugh, but who could imagine 5 years ago all those things that we live today?

            What do you mean we do not have a draft? Last time I checked, 18 year olds were still required to register with Selective Service. While I don’t actually see the government forcing teenagers into the military, noncompliance would be an excuse to force same into FEMA camps or possibly slave type labor for said camps.

            Two banks merged: ALPHABANK and EUROBANK. Actually it’s the beginning of the realization that the banking system is for the crap.
            The EUROBANK recorded first half of 2011 losses of 580 million euros. Plus another 620 million from unpaid dept from households and businesses which is to be recorded in the second half.
            Actually the ALPHABANK saved the other, but the problem as i see consists of two main factors:
            1. What is going to happen to the personell due to the merger?
            2. How the customers will be treated in terms of interest rates, new loans, and renewal of existing loans.
            Generally speaking, in order for the bank to show profits, two things must happen.
            1. Reduce the operating expenses, which means layoffs and closing down branches.
            2. Increase sales, which means increase of spreads and interest rates.
            Time will tell, but i’m sure this merger and all others that will follow, will not have any good impact to the people and businesses.

            Be safe anonymous.

          What if they were simply defaced without removing material? Say, use a metal stamp and punch a big X into the face and reverse? If the claim is that they represent counterfeit legal tender, then what standard would prevent actual legal tender from being accepted? If you brought a silver dollar to the bank with X’s stamped into it, would they accept it? If not, then would that also not remove the threat that stamped Liberty Dollars could be used/mistaken for legal tender?

          Just throwing out an idea… is there a better solution if you don’t want to smelt it but still retain the metal weight?

      “head to a smelter” you got that right. Just, for the sake of not losing more of your property to the tyrants, get them physically changed to any form not resembling the liberty dollars. These are pure gold and silver, right? (I think they are, don’t have any myself) But they are soft metals and anybody with the means to apply some heat or a mallet to them probably should do so before the sob’s come to get them.

      My advice would be to smelt them, and record it so you can see the coins being obliterated. That way if anyone comes knocking, you can hand them (or show them) a copy of the destruction. Then again, maybe you would be charged with destruction of illegal property, or some other such nonsense. Anyway, gold is gold, and it’s still worth its weight :)

      I remember when VanHaus was doing this and friends of mine were buying his products. They were buying Silver Liberty Oz at $20 and my question to them was… why are you paying $20 for his oz of silver when I’m buying eagles oz’s at $14? They didn’t have much to say.

      If gold and silver are considered money in our constitution, why is that what VanHaus was doing illegal? It’s not; It’s a threat to the fiat money scam system therefore they made it illegal.

      Smelting is the best option for this product.

        According to Uncle Ben, “gold is not money”. I am sure that will be the defense. A good attorney and patriot could have a lot of fun with this case.

        The federal judge would be in a real quandry. If he says gold is not money like Uncle Ben, then he has denied the US Constitution, which he has sworn to uphold. If he says that gold is money, then he labels FRN as fiat.

        This could be fun. Bottom line Von Haus might be convicted with minting money without a license from the FED.

          • They also produced $20 coins in the 80′s I believe that did not trade very much at all until silver reached that level a few years ago.

            Our government enables the “Fed” to print money for foreign banks to remain solvent. This can be inflationary. It should “mint” silver and maybe even gold coins that make sense to the populus and give them a protection against silver; and a deflationary protection as well in face value. Not something silly like 5 ounces of silver for $.25. A $1000 (1/4 ounce) gold coin and $100 silver coin will get bought for paper very quickly in this country.

          Maybe find a well drillernfrom another county? One that accepts cash. :)

          Once your well is installed, there are ways to hide it. For example, there are plastic enclosures you can buy that are painted and textured to look like boulders. As those may be well known by your county inspector, a better solution might be to erect an outbuilding so that the structure encloses your well head. Some government busybody driving around looking for rogue wells would have no idea you’ve got a well under there.

            Drive your own shallow well (25 ft). Tractor supply has everything you need, or you can order it all out of Northern magazine. A pitcher pump is only going to draw 25 ft. max. It was either in Backwoods home or Mother earth news mags that gave a detailed description of what you need to drive a shallow well. I’ll try to locate it and give you the magazine number, or you can go on line and look at the videos. The hardest part is going to be locating water on your property using divining rods.

        water is an God given right, we werenty’ put on this planet with no food and water to drink, it doesn’t work that way, no one should have tohe right to tax water that is on your property. As a sdide note, what if you just bought jewelry and had it smelted ? they can’t really trace that. I also have a charm bracelet my husband gave me over 20 years ago with coins hsi mother had, gold coins, one is a mexican gold piece and onwee is a British gold piece, they are antiques, they cant’ do anything about that can they ? also have a gold charm bracelet with a lot of gold charms on it, its mine and I aim to keep it, I also have a gold ingot on a chain also old, can they take these things?

      if our fed dark overlords decided to allow gold and silver as a medium of exchange would govt minted coins and bars (silver and gold eagles) be the only type accepted? In utah I believe that is the case but their working on an amendment to allow other than govt issued rounds to be used

      Interesting point of fact… It’s very interesting how a coin with the word “LIBERTY” on it is causing so much trouble??? I guess they don’t want us to have any! DOH!!! What did Patrick Henry say??? Give me Liberty or give me death…right? That man was way before his time, wasn’t he?

      Totally ridiculous this even happened, but I agree it was to confiscate his gold and set a precedent to label as many as possible “terrorists”…domestic or not.

      Hmm Liberty Dollar. Special form of domestic terrorism. This article is crying out for air quotes. Lemme try:

      “Liberty” dollar. More than a little irony when something called a Dollar that has an actual value is “terrorism”, when a regular dollar that has no value is considered the legitimate currency LOL. And that word “terrorism”. Terrorism is an attack against a civilian target. There’s nothing civilian about this government anymore. So if you feel like it, you can call it an act of war, or subversion, etc. But it isn’t terrorism.

      Greetings Everyone!!!
      Guess the “Feds” are getting a mite desperate.Arresting raw milk distributors,raw almond farmers,coin makers,Organic farmers who refuse to grow GMO crops and any one who smells of individualism.At one time it seemed to me to be the red half of the REPOCRATS in Congress were the main culprits that kissed the feet of Corporate America(read multi-national).No longer,the other “blue” half seem to be in thrall to their Corporate masters as well.Doubt even Ron Paul can reverse the slide into the Dark Days of crumbling Imperialism.TPTB won’t go quietly into the annals of history.Before they give up even one iota of power to lessen the suffering of the many as things change,they’ll demand suffering on a MASSIVE scale.We know it’s time is near,as to when,only God and J.C. knows(and it AIN’T in September boyz and girls).Let them have their PM’s.Precious little good it will do them.Change is coming and TPTB feel it and shudder in fear.What’s about to come next cannot be controlled by guns,FEMA camps,savaging the people in general in the name of “National Security” or any other self-serving method of control the UBER-RICH employ.SHTF people sense the turning of the tide and are “prepping”(I hope)for the interim period that ALWAYS precedes a new paradigms for Civilization.The Russians don’t have a clue,the Chinese have ALWAYS refused to accept it to their peril,Europe is still clueless,and the REPOCRATS won’t change for it.Makes for “interesting times” to quote a ancient Chinese curse.

      When Castro took power in Cuba back in 1959 the first thing that he did was to seize all firearms which he did because there was universal registration. After the people that had kept their guns were either in jail or dead, he went on the radio and told the people that he wanted everyone’s gold and silver. Some people at that point wanted to fight him but they had nothing to do it with. That’s the dividing line. Once they call for gun confiscation the time for talk is over.

      Don’t forget, the feds raided Gibson Guitar Co. because they thought there was illegal imported wood there.

      If you own a Norfed medallion the feds would have no problem with breaking down your door in the middle of the night looking for your “terrorist” coin.

      Remember “Kristallnacht” in 1938 Nazi Germany when storm troopers destroyed Jewish businesses?

      And the Democrat left wing libs are constantly saying how our Constitution has no relevance today. Throw the bums out of office before we become another National Socialist state.

        May you were not paying attention. It was the great Republican hero George W. Bush who referred to the Constitution as a “G.D. piece of paper”, and it was a Bush appointment, Alberto Gonzales, who called the Constitution “quaint”. So perhaps in your kooky little world of illusion it may be all the Dem’s fault, but in the REAL world, we know better.

David Rockefeller is the leader , enough said, defeat them and you will have a decent Government, Ron Paul , God Bless him, is not the man to do it, too soft and too old, although his heart is in the right place.

The powers that are have full control of the white house with the imposter, full control of the congress will all of the thieves that steal from us, and full control of the media and the education system, so the only hope is that the small percentage of the population that have arms and are willing to spill a bit of patriot blood for freedom and liberty are our only hope!

      Also, too many so-called amerikans were willing to surrender much freedom and liberty for what seemed, appeared, imagined to be security and as Benjamin Franklin stated, “Those that are willing to surrender liberty for security – deserve neither!”

      if you do not have a smelter just deface the coins beyound recognition. you can do this with a hammer and still have all of the metal. just thinking of the non-smelting poor man. acid would also deface the coin beyond recognition. stamp the word “copy” somewhere. anything but give up your precious metals
