    Liberty Dollars

    Love these things. A very controversial series, but nonetheless, beautiful!











    These are so hard to take pictures of, beautiful mirrors always are!
    Can't wait to get some more of these coins in, even though they are just bullion, these can get very rare, and very valuable!

    Interesting design, I've never seen them before.

    Not sure I am too much of a fan of the obverse of the coin though.

    You've never seen them before? At least tell me you've heard of them!

    Here are some links to help ya out brother. This is one of those "side sets" of mine

    Liberty Dollar

    One Ounce Silver Series (LibertyDollarEncyclopedia)

    Haven't read everything on the Wikipedia page below, don't know that everything is true, but for now I'll post it lol

    Liberty Dollar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And one last thing, they are not coins. That is what makes them so controversial, the government is mad because this so called "currency" is undermining the United States currency, the definition of a coin is a piece of metal stamped and issued by the authority of a government for use as money. Or at least, this is the definition according to the government.
    The FBI has raided the mints, and has taken away many of the Liberty Dollars.

    These are a really cool series to collect. Makes me think back to the old days, currency was backed by silver and gold. I have some more I will post, but this time copper, not silver
    These are also in gold and platinum.

    There are other designs as well.

    I think I would rather accept these, than actual cash. 20 one ounce silver Liberty Dollars, versus a flimsy $20 bill that'll get me one ounce of silver. lol

    Yeah... but you have to pay cash for them, right? So somewhere something isn't right?

    What I said was kind of a joke, but if you want to get technical alright.
    These are just another way of currency for those who wished to trade them, just like trading an apple for an orange, these are a bartering currency, say if somebody had an item, and one wanted to pay $20 for it, and they both were okay with trading a liberty dollar for that item.
    Yes, you do pay cash for them, but my use for them isn't necessarily to be trading. These liberty dollars are like any other silver round, trading paper for physical "money" but I also look at it from a numismatic standpoint, and that the prices for these will only continue to rise, with the legal situations that have to be dealt with.

    Hmm. Regardless, I'm not to big of a fan of the design. Nothing personal

    Posted some copper ones in the "Other Precious Metals" section.
    Probably don't like those either
