Survival Rounds Set to Launch

Survival Podcast AOCS Copper Coins Coming Soon

Here is the deal we have a new project going with Rob Gray with the AOCS (American Open Currency Standard) to produce AOCS Copper Coins for TSP.  These are going to be awesome and VERY affordable, like 1.25 a piece or there about and about 1 dollar a piece in larger quantities.

Rob is a huge supporter of TSP so he is fronting the copper on the first run. We will pay for it of course but as the coins are sold.

Tiffany Rockwell of the Gear Shop has been working on the design, below is a comp, we are not done with it yet and the final will look a bit different.  Additionally it will be proof quality copper not a black enamel but this gives you and idea of where we are going with it.

These coins will be official AOCS currency and usable for barter with AOCS merchants.   They will also be a good tool to spread the message about honest money and TSP.  In fact a special covert project is underway that will teach anyone you give one of these to the real truth about our money supply.

Rob Gray from AOCS had given us an awesome deal to bring these coins to our listeners in helping me with the initial cost of the copper.  I do however have to pay the set up fees and the die making cost.

If you want to see some actual AOCS copper check them out at the AOCS mint, this will give you a better idea of what our coins are going to look like in the final result.  Also don’t freak at the prices on the mints page most of those are for bags of like 250 units or more.  Again our coins will sell for about 1.25 a coin in small volumes and have a good discount for volume buys.

Examples of Current AOCS Copper Coins

Again the design above is not final and these won’t even be up for pre-order for close to a month.  We have at least one major design change in mind, we are going to make the hyphens into little ants.  The image is a compass rose and the words honor, courage, strength and knowledge represent keeping your moral and mental bearings.  They are also the primary tenets by which I set up the show’s philosophy.

The reverse will mention a new site where people can learn the truth about money but more on that later.  We would love to hear what you think of the design and please remember there will be no black on the actual coins they will be proof quality copper with the images includes by relief and impression.

For those that wonder why we are not doing silver, we can’t do that at this time and sell them at a fair price and even break even much less make a tiny profit.  It is on the radar some day but this is a much more affordable way for us and the audience to work on helping others learn about honest money and being prepared.


Well I posted a concept of our new AOCS one AV Ounce earlier this week, we now have the final version of the proofs of the coins.   We are waiting for the final editions back from the die artist but this is what they should look like.  Again they are going to be very affordable about $1.25 a coin in small quantities and about $25 dollars for a roll of 25.

The domain on the back isn’t live yet.  The site should be live in about 2-3 weeks.  TRTAM stands of course for The Real Truth About Money.    As per the request of several listeners we did manage to get some bee symbolism onto the back to compliment the ants on the front.  There is also a symbol for the American flag on the back, do you see it?  It may be a lot larger than you think.

We will begin taking pre-orders soon, as soon as we have an estimated delivery date back from the mint.  Again isn’t live yet but will be in plenty of time for when the actual coins are available.

These announcements were published by Jack Spirko on his site here and here.

We invite you to listen to The Survival Podcast.
