During those two glorious years when Ron Paul ran the Monetary Policy subcommittee—Spring was it to be alive!—the former congressman used every possible opportunity to shame policymakers about fiat money. A year ago, he brandished a silver piece in front of Ben Bernanke to make the point. The makers of a sound money film parable, "Silver Circle," recognized the piece immediately:

We gave Ron Paul a one-ounce round last January when we met him in Houston, TX at a Ludwig Von Mises event. He must be carrying it around in his pocket! We’re so honored to have the champion of sound money and presidential candidate, Ron Paul, holding our movie’s silver.

The film now has a trailer.

Well. Who do I contact for a screener?
