It's August 1939...rumors of war surround Adolf Hitler’s increasingly bold German expansion...
In an effort to suppress public fear and demoralization the British Ministry of Information has planned the immediate release of three posters in the event of war.
- “FREEDOM IS IN PERIL. DEFEND IT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT”
- “YOUR COURAGE, YOUR CHEERFULNESS, YOUR RESOLUTION WILL BRING US VICTORY.”
- “KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.”
At the top of each lay a “Tudor” crown - the symbol of government authority.
Though the third poster is never released to the public, the patronizing tone of “Mum and Dad know best,” resounds to this day.
This is a stacking coin built for stackers. “KEEP CALM AND STACK ON,” highlights the absurd notion of monarchy, and serves as means of reclaiming self-sovereignty through the exchange of FIAT currency for timeless and robust silver.
This beautiful medallion is a rebuttal to market manipulation, and a reminder of the thin veneer of social order.
