Half Ounce silver coin – Australian American Alliance

The Australian-American relationship has been the central issue in Australian foreign policy since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941. War in the Asia-Pacific brought Australia into a crucial and ultimately successful military alliance with its powerful Pacific ally, the United States.

The Australia, New Zealand, United States Security Treaty (ANZUS or ANZUS Treaty) is the military alliance which binds Australia and New Zealand, separately Australia and the United States to co-operate on defense matters in the Pacific Ocean area, though today the treaty is understood to relate to attacks worldwide.

Australia and the United States alliance is one which has strengthened over time and is considered very important. This 1/2oz silver bullion coin commemorates this bond and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.


The coin’s reverse features the eagle which is located on the top of the Australian–American Memorial in Canberra, and commemorates the role of the United States in World War II. It also features elements from both county’s flags and the inscription AUSTRALIAN/AMERICAN MEMORIAL, WAR IN THE PACIFIC 1941-1945.
The coin’s obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, 2013 year date and coin’s technical specifications.


These bullion coins are presented without capsules in protective acrylic tubes of 25 coins. There are 20 tubes to a monster box.

2013 Sentinel One Ounce Silver Medallion - Brilliant Uncirculated Bullion Round

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Spirko and his team at The Survival Podcast spent some time strategizing what people could do to help their fellow citizens in times of disaster. They threw around several ideas, like putting together disaster-response teams or even reviving a voluntary militia; but for Spirko, one phrase stuck out more than anything else: “Every citizen is a soldier.”

He realized that not everyone is cut out to be a warrior, but all who embrace personal philosophies of freedom and liberty are surely warriors at heart. Only some will be labeled a soldier, but anyone can deem him or herself a Sentinel—one who stands watch over their fellow citizens.

The Sentinel medallion illustrates three of the most iconic moments of resistance and defense of liberty in human history. The overlapping symbols on the reverse of the coin—the sword, the musket and the rifle—visually bridge the historical gaps between valiant efforts made to defend a nation’s freedom.


The Spartan sword represents the 300 Spartan solders who gave their lives to protect the Greek Republic from the invading Persian kingdom. The musket acts as a symbol of our defiance and declaration of independence from the British Empire during the American Revolution.

The AR-15- certainly the most intellectually provocative symbol of the three- represents the modern militia. It encourages us to open our eyes to the growing, tyrannical nature within our back alleys and our boardrooms and realize that we, too may be called upon to take up arms; just as the Spartans and Revolutionaries before us. 300 Spartans stood to protect the Greek Empire--imagine what 55 million American gun owners could do.

This coin is a celebration of Sentinels—the sword and the musket represent the brave men and women in history who fought for freedom and for the protection of others, while the rifle acts as a reminder that no society is exempt from looming oppression. Not even ours.

Jekyll Island One Ounce Silver Medallion Round

On November 22, 1910, an elite group of bankers and politicians gathered in J.P. Morgan's private estate on Jekyll Island, off the coast of Georgia, to seize control of the world's monetary system in an elaborate ruse known as the "duck hunt." 

Speaking of sport and carrying shotguns to ward off any suspicion, the dark figures  covertly met in Senator Nelson Aldrich's private railway car in New Jersey. A number of reporters had arrived to gather the scoop, but mysteriously disappeared after J.P. Morgan & Co. partner Henry P. Davison spoke to the station master. The train departed traveling to the Brunswick train station, where the men boarded a boat and embarked to Jekyll Island. 

The Jekyll Island conference provided a cover for the world's most powerful bankers and corrupt US politicians to pave the way for a private central bank in America. Three years later on Christmas eve, 1913, when congress was in recess, a group of illegally elected politicians passed what was known as the Aldrich Plan setting up the Federal Reserve, a private banking entity with the power to legally tender American currency.

The Jekyll Island medallion is an eery reminder of the insidious conception of the Federal Reserve. Standing in front of J.P. Morgan's estate, the three figures represent the architects of debt: Paul Warburg of the Rothschild family, Senator Nelson Aldrich, and J.P. Morgan himself.

Feng Shui - Cranes Silver One Ounce Proof Coin - New Zealand Mint

About The Coin
Humans have always seen birds as symbols of inspiration and freedom. The ability to fly and to soar high up in the sky is closely associated in Feng Shui with the ability to serve as messengers from heaven. Birds are considered powerful symbols of new opportunities that are there for you, even in times of adversity. Their songs are inspirational in their beauty and complexity, which adds the primal power of sound to this Feng Shui symbol. 
Images of Cranes may often be found in Feng Shui clothing or art. Known as the prince of all birds, the Crane has come to symbolize longevity, energy and even immortality because of its long lifespan and untiring strength in flight. In ancient Chinese legends, Cranes carried the spirits of the departed to heaven. Thus, the symbol of cranes is used in Feng Shui to bring the energy of a long, noble and peaceful life that will eventually lead the human soul to heaven.
This delightful coin shows two Cranes captured against a mirror finish, proof quality background with one bird looking upwards, symbolizing authority and wisdom. As in traditional Chinese paintings, these cranes are surrounded by reeds and pine tree branches representing constant friendship. Both Cranes are also shown in the wild, illustrating their freedom and endless opportunity to develop.
The coin’s obverse features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Feng Shui Cranes 1 oz 999 Pure Silver Coin is packaged inside a beautifully decorated lacquered red wooden box, which sits inside an outer box featuring an ancient ornate Chinese-style design. When the inner packaging is opened, the 1 oz coin and Certificate of Authenticity are displayed.

Game of Drones One Ounce Silver Round Medallion - Second Arrow Silver Bullion

This is not an anti-Obama medallion. This is an exposition of truth. This coin is an icon of our generation’s rage against the machine; the “governing” machine mired in the military industrial complex that has cloaked the deaths of over three thousand civilians through its pursuit to assassinate al-Qaeda.

The US government calls them “signature strikes,” but its been estimated that up to 98% of drone strike casualties are civilians. The CIA has developed a “double-tap” strategy of targeting responders, rescuers, and mourners at funerals- a method utilized by terror groups themselves.

Now our privacy is being targeted. We are experiencing an evil paradigm shift toward surveillance and invasion of personal information. Militaristic spy drones are already flying over our heads. Our constitutional rights and individual liberties are chiseled away through fear based legislation. They can read our emails, listen to our conversations, and take our DNA if we are arrested.

Is it safe to assume they would never target you?
