Survival Podcast AOCS Copper Coins Coming Soon — 25 Comments

  1. There will be 1 ounce of copper in the coins, they will be just about the same size as a typical silver round but a bit thicker to accommodate the slightly lower weight of copper vs silver per volume.

    We won’t be doing bees vs. ants, though I like the bee and perhaps we can work something into the obverse with a bee.

  2. Oh and they should be available for pre order and ship before Christmas the time Rob stated was seven weeks as of a few days ago.

  3. A couple of years ago we bought 100 of D’Anconia Copper coins to give out to people who had read Atlas Shrugged. The quality of these coins is great.
    I will be buying a bunch of these new coins.

  4. Very cool. I hope if I order some they won’t be seized before they are even shipped to me. That happened a couple years ago when I ordered some copper Ron Paul coins from Liberty Dollar.

  5. @Travis, This is why I choose Rob and AOCS to do this with. They have crossed all the T’s and dotted all the I’s. What they are doing violates no laws and doesn’t attempt to replace US currency, simply exist along side it.

    The Liberty Dollar was a great idea but mistakes made it vulnerable. Rob studied those issues deeply before setting up AOCS. He has been a class act all the way as well and I am happy to support him and his efforts.

  6. I have a John Galt Silver and D’Anconia copper coin. They are very well done. I suppose there are a lot of “Atlas Shrugged” fans at TSP.

  7. When you interviewed the AOCS representative (last year?), you said you would take a AOCS 1 oz. silver round as payment for the MSB membership. I haven’t heard it mentioned since. Is that option still available?

  8. @Paul absolutely! For MSB I will always take “50” in AOCS currency or two ounces in any pure silver such as bars or rounds marked .999 fine silver. I will even take $3.00 in face value of any U.S. pre 64 90% silver coins (dimes, quarters, halves, dollars).

    Quite happily I might add.

  9. I Like these “ROUNDS” and want some.
    Jack, is it ok to call these copper “ROUNDS” coin’s?

  10. @Joerocker a coin by definition is

    “A piece of hard material that is standardized in weight, is produced in large quantities in order to facilitate trade, and primarily can be used as a legal tender token for commerce in the designated country, region, or territory.”

    These are a piece of hard material that is standardized in weight and going to be produced in large quantities in order that people may use them for trade with AOCS merchants or in any barter economy of their choosing.

    Calling them “legal tender” would be completely false but I think they are definitely coins. If there is some legal technicality here I am not aware of it.

    But a challenge coin is called a coin, right?

  11. How can one purchase these coins when available? Does one need to be a member of your ‘Brigade’ to purchase?

  12. OK, late January and no update on the TSP copper rounds/coins. What’s up? Are they coming anytime soon?

  13. @Pathfinder,

    They are in and shipping this week but to all, ALL QUESTIONS about items ordered from the gear shop need to be addressed to the gear shop not to me. I do not run the gear shop, not now, not ever.

    Also there have been updates posted at the gear shop website. Additionally they will be shipping all week long as 90% of the first run sold in pre order.

    Due to this we are ordering 5,000 more on a second run.
