Between stimulus and response, there is a space,
and in that space, is our freedom.
The launch of the Silver Bullet Silver Shield medallion series was met with a great deal of challenges but when all was said and done, a huge success!
With nearly 60,000 ounces sold in it’s first offering, the Silver Bullet Silver Shield Debt & Death medallion made a huge impact in the physical silver market, outselling many better know national mint runs.
Not only the sales numbers are impressive, the secondary market is exceptionally strong too. Regular bullion strikes are consistently going for double spot price only days after we stopped taking orders. Some of the more limited editions are going for more than $500 an ounce! Considering this is from a series that is only months old, this must impress the most seasoned silver investor.
The Debt and Death Medallion was the starting point for a series of bold images to follow. Despite the negative imagery of the medallion, it caught the public’s eye as a bold statement that spread the idea that we can offer an individual opposite consciousness solution to the collectivist problems we face.

The first positive Medallion in the Silver Bullet Silver Shield series is the Trivium Medallion. The Trivium is the basis for all individuals to free themselves of collective manipulation or toxic thoughts that hold them back from their destiny. This also makes for a strong basis for future Medallions in the Silver Bullet Silver Shield Series.
Do your thoughts serve to free you or simply to make you freely serve?” ~ Chris Duane
From early on we are indoctrinated with a two step thought process with input-output of memorizing and regurgitating information.
This is most necessary for a collective to mold obedient citizens, workers or soldiers. Instant and willing obedience to authority is the underlying theme of all modern day state education / indoctrination. Without a humanity questioning authority, the Elite can sleep well at night.

We have all heard of a “classical education,” but few know what that really means.
It was based on the Trivium of Grammar (Observation), Logic and Rhetoric. Grammar (Observation) the rational and unemotional observation of symbols, situations or facts allows truth to be observed. Logic is processing the current set of facts and logically thinking about what will be the logical consequences of, or the best course of action in light of the observation. Rhetoric is the ability to tell either yourself or others of your observation and your line of thinking. The Trivium is the three step thought process that breaks the slave thought and allows the individual to become their highest and best self.
Coming up with a symbol to represent the Trivium Medallion was a challenge.
The first idea was to simply adopt the Triquetra. This age old symbol has been used many times throughout history and cultures to represent many ideas from the Holy Trinity to Paganism. When looking further into the creation of the symbol you learn about sacred geometry used at the beginning of almost every major religion.
Evolution of the Trivium
The version of the Trivium symbol we are using is found inside the Seed of Life geometric pattern. The “Seed of Life” is formed from seven circles being placed with sixfold symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which act as a basic component of the Flower of Life’s design. The Seed of Life is a symbol depicting the seven days of creation in which the Judeo-Christian God created life. This design was used most famously by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci. While the Triquetra and the Seed of Life made an interesting design, we decided to go further and add another laying of detail…
The Flower of Life is the modern name given to a a geometric figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. They are arranged to form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry, similar to a hexagon. The Flower of Life is found in almost every culture including Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Morocco, India, Egypt, Israel, China, Japan, and even Peru. This design is very intricate and makes for a great background for the other two symbols to make for a very unique and positive design.
One final element was added to make the Trivium Medallion complete.
The Founding Fathers declared that man has certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. A unique perspective on these three Rights is that Life represents your past freedom. Liberty represents your present Freedom. And the Pursuit of Happiness represents your future Freedom.
The Trivium, combined with these three Rights, make a powerful, positive force in your life. The 2012 Trivium Medallion will be available December 1st with two different strikes. The first strike is the Brilliant Uncirculated Strike. This will be priced starting $2.99 over spot for any quantity order.
