Global Monetary Reserve LLC and the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation together offer a series of copper and silver bullion rounds to benefit the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.


Christopher “Chris” Kyle was the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, with over 160 kills officially confirmed by the Department of Defense. 

Kyle served four tours in the Iraq War as a member of Seal Team 3. He was awarded several commendations for acts of heroism and meritorious service in combat. He received two Silver Star Medals, five Bronze Star Medals, one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals.

Kyle was honorably discharged in 2009, and published a memoir, American Sniper, in 2012 that was later made into a popular movie. 

In 2013, Kyle and a friend were killed in a shooting in the United States by a mentally ill veteran. 

The bullion rounds pay tribute to the spirit of honor, duty and service exemplified by Kyle, according to GMR, and are intended to honor the commitment and sacrifice of U.S. Navy veterans and Navy personnel serving around the world, the firm said, in a press release. 

 A portion of the proceeds from the collection will directly benefit the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation in its mission to help military members, first responders and their families. 

“These are unique and lasting gifts that are perfect for anyone with a love of military collectibles,” said Taya Kyle, Chris’s wife and executive director of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, in a press release. “They’re a great way to hold on to a little piece of history and to honor the memory those who serve.”

GMR has not disclosed what percentage or amount from sales will benefit the foundation, which includes a reference to the Navy SEAL’s “frogmen” nickname.
