Your Chance To Own A Tiny 3" Piece Of Hank Paulson

Tyler Durden's picture




 

As if adding insult to injury each and every day with wave after wave of POMO, even as the criminals on Wall Street continue to go about their business, collecting record bonuses, without even the remotest threat of prosecution, wasn't enough the US Mint is now openly micturating in the face of what little is left of US middle class with the issuance of the "Peregrine" Paulson (3 inches) bronze medal. That's right: starting today, everyone can own a tiny 3 inch piece of Hank: the same man who in October 2008 barged into congress with a three page proposal demanding Congress give him supreme dictatorial powers over this country, and to dispense an uncapped amount of money in rescuing his former company and anyone else he saw fit. The description of the reverse: " The image of the peregrine falcon
represents Secretary Paulson’s commitment to conservation and his
long-time interest in birds of prey." Wouldn't it be more fitting to find a creature celebrating Hank's commitment to fraud, communism, bail outs, and the Goldman way? We eagerly await William Banzai's take on the Silver Vampire Squid Paulson coin which, if we find an appropriate dealer, we would be happy to sell directly to readers (if there is any physical silver remaining of course). Failing that a coin showing Blythe Masters on the front and Gary Gensler on the back would be a perfect substitute.

Of course, we jest: after the crackdown when everyone using the internet, parchment or ink is thrown in jail, who won't want to have a pallid bust of Paulson just above their chamber door...

Wow, glad I wasn't the only one to consider that he might hang out with a certain DA from New York City and his high-priced hookers. Does it cost more or less when you only have 3 inches?

Tungsten would be worth something.  With Paulson approving it, it might be a mixture of lead and tin. 

He was, after all, an Eagle Scout.

"On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty

to God and my country, to obey the scout law,

to help other people at all times,

to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight."

I guess its obvious who his "God" was.

Well they sure don't have any silver to mint coins with and the penny is almost enough trash metal in it that it's only a few more percent of zinc away from being brass.

Before the federal reserve started you could buy pounds copper for a few pennies. Now you can't buy a pennys worth of copper for a penny. Oh how those magical fractions go from far above value to far far below it.

The obverse design features a portrait of Secretary Paulson with the inscriptions "Second to last Secretary of the Treasury and Henry M. Paulson, Jr."

The reverse depicts a peregrine falcon in the center, taking a dump on America, the seal of the Department of the Theft on the left, the Great Con of the United States on the right and the Department of Theft Building in the background with the date DEC 23, 1913 inscribed above. 

The image of the peregrine falcon represents Secretary Paulson’s commitment to the Department of Theft and it's pledge 'Print from above, prey down below'.

When I look at the coin I see an empty Comex warehouse and the eagle represents an anonymous CFTC investigator looking the other way. And Paulson, well, if he doesn't represesent collusion then what. So we have the unholy trinity integrated symbolically in am illustrative coin: the rigging of markets, bribing of regulators and collusion of business with politicians. I'm sure in the next version they will improve the resolution of the engraved images to show a background with the middle class getting slaughtered in the stock market, a street crowd with pitchforks and worthless paper gold certificates and Ben's helicopters dropping banknotes over the crowd to control the situation.

I thought at first this was a reference to that weirdly-bent pinkie finger of Hank's ... he probably dislocated it from too much practicing of his Austin-Powers-Dr.-Evil-style "one trillion dollars" imitation while preparing TARP.

Maybe it's something in the air in Washington or maybe in the water, but after screwing the unclean masses it seems that the elite at the top of the pyramid find it necessary to keep pushing our faces into a pile of feces. Hank Paulson was probably a crook when he was running Goldman and that stench followed him right into the Treasury position. There's an old saying. Hold your friends close, but hold your enemies closer and that is exactly what a novice from Illinois did when Paulson made room for the newest useful idiot on the block, oops I forgot to pay my taxes Geithner.

Maybe some day someone will design a coin with that same falcon picking at Paulson's carcass or plucking out his eyes after being tied to a stake on the front lawn of the White House. But if the best we can do is honor these people who could care less about what little is left of the middle class and more about their bottom line and Christmas bonus while leaving a trail of destruction in their wake, then I can only hope that some day we as Americans will take a page out of history and return the favor to our corrupt government and financial elite. Abe Lincoln said it best......"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it"......... 1861 Inaugural Speech....TGIF

I think it's kinda nifty they made it bronze ... a gold(man) one would've been just a little too obvious, not to mention less profitable on a dollar-in-dollar-out basis.

Plus, Hammerin' Hank probably fancies himself a kind of financial "Doc Savage, Man of Bronze".

(Note that in a Hank Paulson/Goldman context it's pronounced "Bron-zee", rhymes with "Pon-zee".)

Threeggg,

Hell no. I couldn't even order the day they came online. I was bitter. I just wanted one of each (except the 5 oz.) and two of the one ounce coins.

I got an e-mail like a month+ later. "Oh, sorry. We might have some available later."

So, no. I don't blame Max. I just wish he would do it himself. He is a guy with resources. I wasn't going to hoard them. Just a reminder of the "Buy Silver Crash JPM" campaign you know? As a motivator to keep your head in the game.

I would now prefer to buy some of the coins Tyler mentioned above. A nice momento for when the shit finally hits the fan.

Were you able to get some?

The Biggest Piece of SHIT that ever uttered a word.

That man needs to be impaled, not "commenorated" on a fucking coin.  Maybe the impalment, not the man!

$15 TRILLION in debt and the geniuses at the mint come up with this as a "product" to sell???  What the hell are they dropping acid, washing it down with a coctail of crystal meth and sterno???

 

Jesus!  The need to join the SEC officers and just watch Tranny porn.  At least they are occupied and not continuing to do stupid shit like a fucking doin for Henry the ASSHOLE!

C'mon guys, I don't see the problem here.

It's kind of like Obama giving Warren Buffet the presidential medal of honor in November.  Paulson didn't get a medal like Buffet did, this is a way of making up for it from the US Mint. 

A medal is special.   Like a bronze medal in the Olympics or something... the "special" olympics... I hear the 1 inch medal has a picture of Mini Me on it but it isn't available for sale yet.

What a fucking mockery this country has become. People are more concerned with watching snookie on jersey shore than realizing how fucked in the ass they are being. Then they bitch to their friends how much money they don't have and how under paid they are. Yet they still hold their hand over their heart and lip sync the national anthem at a sporting event. All I have to say is, if you understand what's going on, don't keep your mouth shut. Fight these assholes by buying physical silver, that's about the only means we have left to put up a battle. Realize they are throwing it in your face that they control the cards and you are just pawns which are about to be extinct and coins like this are just a reminder of this fact.

Looks like its a race to the bottom.

It has come to the attention of the United States Mint that several private commercial businesses are advertising so-called "Barack Obama Presidential $1 Coins," as well as commemorative half-dollar coins, American Eagle Silver Coins and multi-coin sets bearing images of the President-Elect. These advertisements feature genuine United States coins that the private commercial businesses have altered by affixing a colorized image to the coin. Additionally, some businesses have treated the coins by gold-plating them.

These items are not official United States Mint products. Furthermore, these products, businesses, and advertisements are not approved, endorsed, sponsored, or authorized by the United States Mint, the Department of the Treasury, or the United States Government.

He is a public.figure so he cant do anything.about it.

Even made of copper it would sell in the tens of thousands and zero hedge would be a household name. Your 15 minutes of fame is guaranteed. Dont go dweeby and PG rated on the coin. He needs to be pissing or shitting on america. I proudly put this idea in the public domain with no ownership interest. Just reserve ten for me to buy.

Seriously though, nobody is going to have these but Honk and his family and friends. Could be a rarity. One of the key individuals involved in the second Dark Ages. Also, I'm starting to think the regular 'ole rag currency I hold (yes FRNs), are going to be collectors items. How many people actually have bills? Same as holding Yugoslavian, Zimbabwaen, Czech, Dutch, old revolutionary script, etc.... Even worthless currency is art and worth collecting.
