The Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round
What is the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round?
The Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round is a One Troy Ounce silver round designed and released by a Friend of Medjugorje in 2010, coupled with the release of his book, It Ain’t Gonna Happen: A Return to Truth.
The beautiful Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round is made of .999 pure silver, and its two-sided design contains an image of the Miraculous Medal, images from the apparition sites in Medjugorje – Apparition Mountain and Cross Mountain, and images of the apparition sites at Caritas in Alabama – the Bedroom of Apparitions and the Field of Apparitions, in very fine detail.
The Church assigned November 27th as the feast day of the Miraculous Medal, because it was on that day in 1830 that St. Catherine Labouré was given the vision of the Miraculous Medal.
What Happened on November 27, 1989 is Amazing!
Remarkably, and clearly, to reintroduce to the world and to reinvigorate the Miraculous Medal and to put its use into stronger practice, Our Lady of Medjugorje spoke specifically of the Miraculous Medal on its feast day, November 27, 1989. Medjugorje visionary, Marija Lunetti, herself, was very surprised when Our Lady made the profound statement on the 159th anniversary of Her 1830 apparition to St. Catherine, saying on November 27, 1989 in Medjugorje:
Through this astounding message, Our Lady was reminding and calling upon us, literally reinvigorating, and giving a renewal and reaffirmation, clearly establishing that miracles continue to be given through the Miraculous Medal. Our Lady clearly wants it to be carried, and for us to pray for those who carry it and for their conversion! This stirred the heart of a Friend of Medjugorje to pray and design the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round
More Graces Attached to the Miraculous Medal?
Regarding the Miraculous Medal itself, the new 1989 message of Our Lady goes further than when Our Lady originally divinely gave it to St. Catherine in 1830, saying in 1989 that graces are given even for those who simply carry the Miraculous Medal unintentionally, without making a stipulation that they do so with religious intent. This is new to us, that by simply carrying the Miraculous Medal, Our Lady can still lead a soul to conversion. This is an amazing gift! A Friend of Medjugorje, always looking for ways to help conversions, then questioned,“How do we get people to carry the Miraculous Medal if they do not have a devotion to God or Our Lady?” His answer to that question formed the basis of the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round.
The “heart” behind the development of the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round was conversion — not only individual conversion, but also the conversion of the world. In leading people to carry the Round, they could be blessed through the graces attached to the Miraculous Medal image and led, not only to individual conversion, but also to the spiritual center of the whole world. Medjugorje is the central point for tens of millions of conversions.
Since 2010, more than 3 million Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Rounds have already been minted! These rounds are in circulation or being saved for the purpose of protecting the holder’s wealth. These rounds will eventually enter into circulation as well, and those who carry them will receive a grace. The Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round is an item that will be exchanged through many hands for centuries. Imagine what Our Lady’s words can manifest in the hearts of non-believers, hardened hearts, and the hearts of those of other faiths!
What does silver have to do with Medjugorje?
Why produce a silver round about Medjugorje?
Our Lady said on August 5, 1986:
Those who have an immature understanding of Our Lady’s messages would like to narrowly confine Our Lady to only certain aspects of our lives – prayer, Church, and the like. A Friend of Medjugorje, however, came to realize early in his walk with Medjguorje that Our Lady’s messages apply to every single aspect of our lives…including money, and that we are to sanctify all things, using them for a holy purpose. It is no small thing that Our Lady says in Her messages to read every Thursday the well-known Scripture passage of Matthew 6:24-34, that begins with “No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” A Friend of Medjugorje reveals in It Ain’t Gonna Happen: A Return to Truth, Our Lady has something to teach us about money and the debt based financial systems the world currently operates under.
He explains in his book that debt- based financial systems are not Godly systems. If you stay entangled in and attached to such systems, you will be brought down with them when they collapse. Our Lady said on September 2, 2011:
The Bible teaches that it is not money that is evil, rather the love of money that is the root of all evils. So if the world’s financial systems are not of God, then they are under judgement and therefore are passing and will fall apart. This begs the question, “What money or exchange system is of God?”
In the Bible, and throughout history, silver and gold have served as money, as a means of exchange for buying and selling. With this Biblical and historical understanding of money, as well as an understanding that Our Lady desires us to use new and creative methods of evangelization in our times, a Friend of Medjugorje designed and released the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round with a dual purpose, both spiritual and physical.
1. Spiritual: Evangelization and Conversion
2. Physical: A means of exchange and the store and saving of wealth that helps one separate from the debt- based financial systems, thereby preserving your wealth.
Spiritual – Evangelization and Conversion:
Our Lady said on October 31, 1988:
The Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round is an innovative collaboration with Heaven for the purpose of evangelization and conversion.
The images on the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Rounds are also a very important part of the conversion aspect of this method of evangelization. In It Ain’t Gonna Happen: A Return to Truth, a Friend of Medjugorje unlocks the November 27, 1989, message of Our Lady in which She gave a new emphasis and efficacy to reinvigorate the Miraculous Medal image for our times, making the Rounds even more potent in aiding in the conversion of all those who will now and in the future, carry these Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Rounds with them.
Physical – Means of Exchange and Store of Wealth:
As a Friend of Medjugorje writes in It Ain’t Gonna Happen: A Return to Truth, all money systems (currencies) throughout history that were separated from silver and gold backing lasted for a very limited time before they collapsed. History shows the lifespan of currencies not backed by silver and gold is only about 50 years.1 The current money systems in the United States and around the world are systems running on paper dollars that are literally backed by nothing, no silver and no gold whatsoever. Silver backing was completely removed from the United States dollar in 1968. That puts the United States’ un-backed currency at 50 years old as of 2018.
It is not being predicted here that the United States dollar will collapse on any particular day during the 50th anniversary of the backing being removed, but rather that history shows the pattern that will inevitably be repeated. Though many would like to hide their heads in the sand and reject this certain collapse because they are comfortable living the way they currently do, the heart of man knows it is coming.
From the book, It Ain’t Gonna Happen: A Return to Truth:
“Gold is the money of kings;
Silver is the money of gentlemen;
Barter is the money of peasants;
Debt the money of slaves.”2
The Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round gives people the opportunity to preserve their savings by exchanging un-backed paper dollars, which will be worthless, for physical silver. It is a precious metal that, because of its rarity and physical properties, is truly valuable, having “intrinsic” value. Intrinsic value means God ordained its value and properties when He created it in the Earth. Silver will always have value. It cannot ever be worthless, while the dollar, the Euro, bitcoin, etc., can and will be worthless at some point. This can also happen in a blink.
Silver has always been the gentleman’s exchange, and many, many thoughtful people are turning to “saving in physical silver” and not saving in paper dollars. Returning to silver as a means of exchange is a return to the system of “money” that God placed in creation, a “Return to Truth.”
The Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round
Is the #1 Specialty Round in the World
A Friend of Medjugorje began speaking about the importance of silver on Radio WAVE Mejanomics3 broadcasts in 2008, a year and a half before the release of It Ain’t Gonna Happen: A Return to Truth. His speaking about silver during that period resulted in at least 900,000 ounces of silver being purchased in 2009, which accounted for 2% of the average world coin and bullion demand for silver at that time.4
As of June 2018, only eight years after the release of the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round, more than 3 million of these Rounds have been produced mostly in one ounce Rounds, but also in lesser amounts as smaller sizes called “fractionals” – ½, ¼, and ⅒ ounce pieces. It has become the number one Specialty Round in the world! As stated previously, many of these Rounds are held in private possession, but we are also aware that the Rounds are being circulated in different manners and for different purposes throughout the world, making their way into many hands that, if it weren’t for the silver content of the Rounds, would otherwise not reach for the Miraculous Medal or for Our Lady.
For several reasons, the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round is considered the Number One Specialty Round in the World:5 the quantity already produced, the fineness of detail and beauty of design, its origin being directly from the messages of Our Lady of Medjugorje, and the spiritual and conversion value of the Rounds. In Paris, France, on the street called Rue du Bac, Our Lady appeared to St. Catherine Labouré, giving the image that She wanted propagated, which resulted in millions of miracles. Most importantly, millions of prayers are behind the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Rounds to bring conversion to all those who carry it.
This, therefore, converts your savings, investments, etc., into a twofold good. Saving in precious metals this way sanctifies your money so when it moves into circulation, the people who come into possession of it will receive the grace to convert. Saving in silver also preserves your wealth in the event of a financial collapse because silver’s value is intrinsic, as already stated. The value of silver is ordained by God, while the value of un-backed currencies is ordained by man – only by one’s faith in the paper dollar does it have temporary value.
The fullness of the explanation about the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round cannot be given in this short article, and therefore it is very important to gain a full understanding of what is behind the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round by reading the book, It Ain’t Gonna Happen: A Return to Truth.
In his Radio WAVE Mejanomics broadcast of February 23, 2017, a Friend of Medjugorje stated:
“Our Lady has come to us to show all factors of society, of life, how we are to live and how to reset the culture, so that the dollar, materialism, consumerism, modernism, are not the gods that we worship. And we need a means of exchange. That is part of history. Jesus had to send Peter down to the lake to get the temple tax, a coin out of the mouth of a fish (Matthew 17:24-27). So Jesus used money. God knows that. Why is money evil now?”6
“We know it is actually the ‘love’ of money that is evil. It is not really the money itself that is evil, but rather a man’s love for it. So can one say money is evil? Yes, money itself can be evil once it has passed from a form that has real, intrinsic value, to a form that has no real, intrinsic value at all. In other words, the dollar backed by silver or gold was backed by real value. The dollar backed by nothing is simply a printed piece of paper and is evil because it is a lie. All lies eventually crumble and fall.”7
“Silver is worth what it is because it has intrinsic value. It is impressed by God, by its rarity. Right now, the stock markets are growing and breaking records in all-time history that has never been before. Every day, or every other day, it’s breaking a new record. Don’t believe in that because it is all false faith. The stock market is like gambling. What goes up, comes down.”
“In Medjugorje, Our Lady changes, and She ‘ups the ante.’ In Medjugorje, November 27, 1989, She ups the power of the Miraculous Medal when She says,
“Those who carry the Miraculous Medal don’t even have to know God…The Miraculous Medal has more value in the spiritual aspect than it does in the silver aspect. But this is a double whammy, because it has both intrinsic value and spiritual value. That is why we struck this Round.
“There are two gigantic forces competing: evil and good. So you either go to what has value, what brings you conversions, or you go to what is not bringing conversions and lose everything. We are at a pivotal point. Reflect, think, study. You do the research.”8

Mejanomics is the name of a Friend of Medjugorje’s Radio WAVE broadcasts in which the messages of Our Lady of Medjugorje are placed as a “template” over the issues of economics, finances, debt, and common everyday issues, to be interpreted with guidance for a Biblical worldview through the messages of Our Lady of Medjugorje. It airs on Thursday at 12 noon Central Standerd Time on Medjugorje.com.

5. What is a “Specialty Round?” A Specialty Round typically refers to a silver or gold round that has been designed by an individual or business that contracts with a private mint to have the round struck and sold. The subject matter on Specialty Rounds varies widely, from those commemorating historical events, to sports memorabilia, both religious and “secular.” Specialty Rounds and other common bullion rounds are not stamped with a face value – a stated value not tied to the intrinsic value of the round – and are not considered legal tender – legal tender refers to money that by law must be accepted if offered in payment of a debt. Yet, throughout history man has always used silver as money. A little piece of paper has no intrinsic value. Therefore, it must be backed by silver to actually have value. When dollars were backed by silver previously, one could go to the bank, etc., and demand their paper notes (the dollar) be exchanged for physical silver. The Miraculous Medjugorje Medjugorje Rounds derive their value from the underlying value of the metal from which they are produced. Even more importantly, they derive a spiritual value from the Miraculous Medal image being on them. Specialty Rounds, therefore, differ largely from, for example, the Silver Eagle Coin produced by the United States Mint in great quantities, because a Silver Eagle Coin has a stated face value and is also legal tender.
