This week's blog review spotlights a new, private mint and a remarkable life-changing event where the owner, Jason tells his epic story of overcoming his own temptations, letting go of his "succubus" in life to start a new journey of family, fatherhood and eventually his own business, Agsilverdojo Bullion. He has fittingly named his story, "From rock bottom to rocking silver in recovery."
Jason's start in life was challenging to say the least. He was raised by his mother in poverty, his father left them when he was only 4 years old. They managed to survive off food stamps and community housing. As he grew older, his desire to fit in with his peers overcame him, leading him to stealing and crimes which allowed him to fit in by having what others had. Eventually, these actions led him to the wrong side of the law and began an unstoppable downward spiral. Spending more and more time in juvenile detention he dropped out of high school at grade 10. In his early adult life, he continued to spend time in and out of prison and eventually succumbed to temptations from drugs, this new drug addiction he refers to willingly as his "succubus" in life. After years of this downward sprial, Jason met the love of his life and they too shared the same succubs of drug addiction. However, in October of 2006, their lives would be forever changed. Jason's now wife, gave birth to a preterm infant and because of this had complicated medical issues. Their son spent 4 months in the neonatal intensive care unit where his condition was guarded. After multiple complications and setbacks, they turned to prayer..."God, if you let our son live, we together will change our lives and give this little boy a chance at life"...and this is exactly what happened. Their prayers were answered and their miracle baby boy survived against all odds. Being true to their word, they enrolled in a treatment program and together were both successful in overcoming their addictions.
After overcoming these massive life events, Jason is now focused on his family and being a good father, while also is looking to financially secure their future. After much research and a belief of almost certain economic collapse, his search leads him to investing in silver. Initially focusing on quantity, he began increasing his ounce count. Eventually he started collecting premium and semi-numismatic rounds as he found the artwork appealing which eventually led to the idea and creation of his very own private mint called Agsilverdojo Bullion.
Agsilverdojo Bullion was created with the motto "Silver, the element of change, prosperity, security and the only real money." It is from these fundamental beliefs where Jason's strength and determination come from. He feels strongly that silver is undervalued and one day soon, silver will break free from market manipulations and anyone holding physical silver in their possession will benefit exponentially from this, lending prosperity, security and the only real money.
His first release is titled "SilverSkulls", from the Plata Power series, 1ounce, .999 fine silver coin. The reverse features his logo, highlighting silver's symbol on the periodic table of elements (Ag). This symbol is encompassed by the Yin Yang symbol with "silver" and "dojo" to represent how these words are interconnected/interdependent to his brand. The word "dojo" is significant because a large part of Jason's mission is to bring education and awareness to silvers many attributes. Lastly, the numbers 47 and 107.8 represent silver's atomic and atomic mass numbers, respectively. The obverse design features the silverskull design titled Plata Power. This is the first of six designs in this series with plans to release the second round later this year.
Silverskulls is available in proof and antique finish, along with your choice of standard or premium display box. All rounds are edge-numbered and come with matching certificate of authenticity.
He also came up with an interesting idea to be able to wear his proof round. Done in .925 sterling silver, comes with chain, pendant, 1oz round and matching COA.
We would like to thank Jason for sharing his story with us. We admire his strength to overcome his temptations and to share this with the community. From this, it is his hope that he can inspire people to overcome whatever "succubus" has dragged them down, and that anything is possible with determination.
