You may remember
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
Dollars held by collectors may be subject to seizure as contraband
by federal law enforcement, officials with the U.S. Attorneys
Office and Secret Service said Aug. 24.
by officials for those two federal law enforcement agencies seem
to reverse the position taken in comments released from the United
States Attorneys 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.
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.
[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.
if a Secret Service agent witnessed something considered to be
contraband, such as Liberty Dollars, they would be duty-bound
to confiscate it.
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.
youve 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
million in double eagle gold coins seized from Langbord family.
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.
