As regular readers here know, I blog about monetary policy and economic news for Silver Circle part-time on their blog, The Silver Underground, in order to promote our upcoming film. We were all floored when clear photos of the committee meeting started emerging and, without a doubt, Ron Paul was holding our coin in his hand! The image above was no Photoshop job. It is the unaltered work of Chip Somodevilla for Getty Images North America! How awesome is that? Thanks, Ron!
Here's our press release:

This is no handy working of Photoshop. During Ben Bernanke’s testimony to the Committee on Financial Services yesterday, Congressman Ron Paul responded to the Chairman’s typical Keynesian explanations by showing the world and Congress what real money is. While speaking, Ron Paul lifted up a shiny, one troy ounce Silver Circle!
News sources everywhere including Forbes, and many from the liberty community, ran with the story. However the round was mentioned many times incorrectly. Some referred to it as an “American Eagle” and others a “Buffalo”. We are here to set the record straight. Ron Paul laid the sound money smack down on Bernanke by showing him a Silver Circle Round from our upcoming film.
We gave Ron Paul a one-ounce round last January when we met him in Houston, TX at a Ludwig Von Mises event. We told him about the film and the Rebels from the movie. He must be carrying it around in his pocket!
We’re so honored to have the champion of sound money and presidential candidate, Ron Paul, holding our movie’s silver. We hope to touch lives and inspire others to become educated on sound money, much like Dr. Paul has. So if you are reading this Dr. Paul, thank you so much!
