Liberty Mint

Liberty Mint was a mint based in Provo, Utah that was initially owned by Howard and Larry Ruff. Howard Joseph Ruff was a financial adviser and writer of the pro-hard money investing newsletter The Ruff Times. Liberty Mint began operations in 1984 an was owned by the Ruffs until 1989. At that point it was sold and Liberty Mint, Ltd. was incorporated in the State of Colorado on March 15, 1990 as St. Joseph Corp. VI. The Company changed its name to Petrosavers International, Inc. on July 26, 1993, and again changed its name to Hana Acquisitions, Inc. on September 12, 1996. On June 9, 1997, the Company changed its name to Liberty Mint, Ltd. It ceased operations in 1999.

Since 1984, the company provided custom minting services for foreign countries, domestic states, municipalities, Fortune 500 companies, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations. The Company's business is primarily comprised of manufacturing and designing custom coins, and silver collectibles. Early on the company's primary product was bullion silver rounds. The company produced these bullion silver rounds on a limited basis (one troy once, .999 pure medallions) for investors (this was the mainstay of business from 1984 to 1987).

While the focal point in the early years was bullion, the mint was involved in the production of silver rounds for many corporations as well. Examples include gold retirement coins for retiring Dow Chemical employees, silver coin premiums given to prospective Chrysler customers who take a test drive, General Motors, Proctor and Gamble, Disney World and the Superbowl. The rounds produced by Liberty Mint were minted with .999 Fine Silver and varied from business strikes to proof-like in finish.
