Bernard Von Nothaus is the creator of the Liberty Dollar and we've interviewed him several times. The first time we interviewed him was at the 2007 Porcfest. The second time was in November of 2007 after the FBI and Secret Service raided the Liberty Dollar! The third time was in 2009 after he and his staff were arrested by the feds. The fourth time was in 2011 after he was convicted by a jury of "counterfeiting". The fifth time was prior to his sentencing.
