Episode-1208- Important Updates from Rob Gray at Mulligan Mint

Silver is Honest Money

Sentinel ParaDIMES are Available at TSPMint

Today I am joined by my good friend Mr. Rob Gray of AOCS and Mulligan Mint. Today our discussion revolves around the future of TSP Silver Medallions and we have some very exciting news about that.

As I said last week there would be news coming out about Mulligan Mint that some parties would spin as extremely negative.  Said news is that Mulligan has filed Chapter 11 reorganizational bankruptcy protection.

This doesn’t mean they are out of business, this means they have set up protections under Federal Court so that they can continue operations and put a halt on some very unreasonable legal actions.  This move actually will allow for additional capital into the business along with some other advantages Rob will tell you about today.

The key take aways are…

  • Mulligan Mint is still “in business” and is still filling orders
  • You can order with a credit card and get the consumer protections that go with that if you want to
  • Mulligan Mint is currently shipping orders right now, every customer is being taken care of
  • Mulligan is now in a much stronger position then they have been in for some time
  • There will be counter claim actions soon, when you hear why it will shock you
  • Rob has stood though this battle and hasn’t quit fighting and is ready for what comes next
  • I will continue to fight this battle with my friend and hope many of you will as well

Special Notice - I do want to make one point public here that I didn’t make on the air.  I have been accused by some people as “doing this for the money” and worse doing so “at the expense of my community”.  Such slander is baseless in the face of the honor I have shown but let me just state this fact.

In August, I told my friend Rob, to “Not to worry about any commissions due to me at that time or any further commissions due to me until such time as he was able to close the current matters.  Further that if he were to lose this fight to insure that anyone from TSP that was owed anything from the mint was ahead of me in line at the end of the road, should that day come.”

I will simply say, those of you who speak against my honor can be forgiven, because you clearly know not of what you speak.

Any trolling or hateful comments by those that wish to simply lie and slander here shall be deleted.  That said any reasonable questions this interview created will be answered by Rob below as I have time to moderate them and as he has time to answer.

Episode-1157- Rob Gray on the Future of Silver Currencies

Silver is Honest Money

Silver is Honest Money

Today I am joined by my good friend Mr. Rob Gray of AOCS and  Mulligan Mint.  Today our discussion revolves around the future of TSP Silver Medallions and we have some very exciting news about that.  Additionally we really focus more on expanding silver’s role in America and around the world as a true currency of choice.

The entire mission of AOCS for as long as I have known Rob has been  to expand the use and role of complimentary currencies and return individual sovereignty for anyone from towns to Indian nations.  Today for instance we are announcing that the Crow Nation has engaged with Mulligan Mint to produce a new silver medallion with plans to set up a bank for their people.

Rob and I have worked long and hard and have some pretty interesting plants to take the silver market to a new level.  We will soon begin work on a new coin series called “The Six Virtues of Liberty” each of the 6 medallions will feature a virtue that is necessary for a citizen to preserve the liberty of the republic.  While we did not reveal the 6 virtues on air today, I will do that here in today’s show notes.  They are…

  • Honor – The willingness to do what is right even when it isn’t easy
  • Courage – The ability to face fear and stand true in spite of it
  • Strength – The power to resist and fight the good fight
  • Knowledge – The wisdom to know the truth and think independently
  • Vigilance – The commitment to always stand guard over the republic
  • Sovereignty – The understanding that you are a sovereign being

Think about this friends, how much stronger would our nation be if these were the virtues that we were instilling in ourselves, our children and our fellow citizens?  Join Rob and I today as we discuss how we as partners are going to bring this message, the message of honest money and the message of community value to America.

Episode-959- AAR from Rob Gray about his Testimony on Parallel Currencies

Rob Grays telling Congress to Ignore the Fed

Rob Grays telling Congress to Ignore the Fed

On August 2nd, 2012 Rob Gray, the Executive Director of the American Open Currency Standard was summoned by Congressman Ron Paul to appear before a House Committee on Parallel Currencies and the role they might play in the future of our economy.

Rob did a great job and learned a lot of things behind the scenes of the congressional machine, mainly that it isn’t as big a deal many times as we are led to believe and that it is in fact easier to get into Congress then to get on a plane.  You can read about his experience on the AOCS website here.

Today though you can hear about the entire thing from Rob himself as he joins us on TSP for the fourth time.  You will also hear some things about the “legal tender law” that will surprise you, I know it surprised me.

Episode-866- Rob Gray on Copper, Silver and Gold

Copper Has a Long History as Money of the Common Man

Copper Has a Long History as Money of the Common Man

Today we are joined by Rob Gray, founder of the AOCS (American Open Currency Standard)  to discuss AOCS copper, silver and gold as a barter currency and all things monetary.

The AOCS exists to expedite the implementation of metal as money.   They actively prospect, train, and support the 3 groups that comprise the AOCS: Merchants that accept AOCS Approved Currencies, Currency Issuers that conceptualize & requisition new minted pieces, and Trade Coordinators that exchange the Currencies with the general public. The AOCS promotes local enterprise and rebuilds local community wealth.

The AOCS promotes a “value for value exchange”

A good way to understand this is to think about the US fiat currency. Imagine a $50 US Federal Reserve Note. Think about what it is “worth”. Most people will quickly answer “$50?. However, the note is merely paper with ink on it, worth plainly no more than a few cents. The currency is worth “$50? only because a merchant is willing to give you $50 worth of value in exchange for it. Also, the courts have decreed Federal Reserve Notes “legal tender”, meaning that the can be used in payment of taxes and to satisfy a debt obligation.

So a paper currency is worth something only when someone is willing to give you something in exchange for it. An AOCS silver currency, however, is valuable whether it is traded or saved. When you exchange silver with a merchant, you are trading value for value. It has two “values”: an intrinsic value and a face or trade value. When you exchange an AOCS currency at a participating merchant, you receive “face value”. If you ever need to melt and sell the currency (which we do not recommend), you will receive “bullion” value. Either way, the currency can not be artificially inflated and will never be “worthless”.

When you exchange in trade with an AOCS Merchant you trade Value for Value, instead of paying for goods and services with fiat debt based Money.
