Liberty Dollars

No. eLD and Liberty Dollars are Warehouse Receipts giving you title to a specific volume of .999 Fine Silver stored for you in our own or a third party’s facilities, and may be lawfully traded for goods or services. Silver Specie, the actual silver rounds or bars, however, are prohibited from direct use in commerce by law, and this was the case made by the government against Bernard von NotHaus and the original Liberty Dollar. This is why Liberty Dollar Network does not offer any silver rounds that are designed to be used as money. or even look like the old Silver Libertys.

No. We are sellers of Silver Bullion. Our Warehouse Receipts meet the requirements under US law as Negotiable Bearer instruments and can lawfully be used in barter, but we do not promote buying our silver in the hope of a profitable return in the future.

Because the spot price changes frequently, we use a higher base in order to make our Warehouse Receipts remain stable at a given value for a period of time. In the event that the spot price of silver rises above that base and remains there for any length of time, we will adjust that base upward. Currently, we sell only the highest quality Silver rounds and bars at a Member Discount off our Silver Base of $25 per ounce, which means that the warehouse receipts are valued at that rate, as well.
