In response to the current economic conditions and scarcity of silver bullion coins, Richard Nelson of The Money Company has purchased dies to create a silver-based private bartering currency.
The dies will be used to produce .50 Troy ounce, .999 fine silver bullion coins. He has given The Collector’s Mint permission to allow anyone to mint as many coins as they want from the dies, with the stipulation that he receives the first of every 100 coins as payment for use of the dies, which will go to the creation of more coin sizes and die upkeep.
The mint has a 100-coin minimum order, and it charges a $2 per coin fee, which is less for larger orders. Buyers may supply the mint with their own silver or buy it from the mint.
The bartering currency will bear the “AN” mintmark of the American National Mint. Both the American National Mint and The Collector’s Mint are divisions of The Money Company.
For more information or to place an order, contact The Collector’s Mint by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (818) 609-7666. Ask for Nancy or Richard and mention “bartering currency dies.”
