The pace of change in the world’s financial systems is breathtaking, and at the heart of this transformation is the principle of sound money — a principle whose time has come.

Citizens for Sound Money (C4SM) is spearheading a monumental legislative drive, currently focusing on key states where our actions could resonate the loudest: Florida, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Texas, and Utah. Our tireless efforts and strategic lobbying have yielded promising support from lawmakers and officials who recognize the critical importance of our mission.


Our legislative package, ambitious and forward-thinking, encompasses three pivotal areas:

  • Legal Tender Recognition: Championing gold and silver as recognized legal tender, we are paving the way for a stable and reliable monetary system.
  • State Depositories: We advocate for the establishment of state depositories, ensuring that precious metals are securely held and managed within each state, reinforcing the financial autonomy and security of our monetary system.
  • Digital Currency Advancement: In an era where digital transactions define commerce, we promote Asset Backed Digital Currencies (ABDCs) grounded in tangible assets like gold and silver, combining the timeless value of precious metals with the efficiency of modern technology.

The journey thus far has been marked by unprecedented advocacy and groundbreaking discussions. In Florida, our collaboration with key figures is setting the stage for the Sound Money Act, with similar efforts gaining traction in New Hampshire. South Carolina presents a unique challenge, yet we are undeterred, seeking legislative champions to join our cause. We are also casting our gaze beyond, identifying 18 additional states ready to embrace sound money principles.

The urgency to act is now. To continue our advocacy and extend our reach, we need your support more than ever. Join us in this crucial endeavor to secure a future built on the solid foundation of sound money.
