Conspiracies are at the heart of the American cultural identity. Even in the 1700s and 1800s, conspiracy culture has led to a high number of movements, both political and otherwise. In 2021, conspiratorial beliefs have never been more significant. Let’s face it: Americans are suspicious of what really goes on in our highest institutions of government. In particular, the American banking system has been the subject of a long list of conspiracies. The core belief that there is an “Illuminati” group of covert operatives secretly running the government sits at the root of most modern American conspiracies.
The “Awakening” series plays heavily into this aspect of modern American politics and culture. This series is not being minted by a federal government. This is why we refer to its circular silver pieces as “rounds,” rather than coins. Conspiracy is not the only focus of these coins. Like many modern conspiracies, the ideas touched on by these rounds display an obsessive level of patriotism. Put simply: conspiracy theorists really love the United States of America, despite the accusations they levy against our shadow government. Celebrate both the history of conspiracy theories and the American identity with the 2021 5 Oz Ama-Gi Liberty High Relief Silver Round.

Both the obverse and the reverse of the 2021 5 Oz Ama-Gi Liberty high Relief Silver Round invoke concepts of liberty, freedom, patriotism, and awakening. The obverse depiction features Ama-Gi. This mysterious figure is someone we don’t truly know much about. Inscriptions of her design are found all throughout the ancient world, particularly in Sumeria. Historians guess that the woman was used as the feminine personification of the concept of liberty. You can even consider her to be the old draft of “Lady Liberty,” a classic American symbol of freedom. She wears a hat that says “this we’ll defend,” suggesting that liberty is something that must be fought for.
Flip the coin over to reveal an even more classic depiction of American conspiracy and counter-culture. “The Awakening” is transcribed above the centered image. The middle of this side of the coin depicts the “All-Seeing Eye,” an integral image in conspiracy culture. It sits atop the pyramid used on the back of the American dollar. In fact, this truth has inspired countless conspiracies that a secret organization runs the U.S.’s finances. The trademark phrase of the Awakening series is “you can’t wake a person who is pretending to be asleep.” This phrase is transcribed around the reverse of this piece.
Whether you’re an avid conspiracy theorist or simply enamored by the concept of grand conspiracies in the United States, this is the perfect high relief silver round for you.
