How To Get Started in Coin Collecting

February 17, 2015 in Coins, Collecting, Collector Sets, Education, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Pennies, USA Coins

After several weeks of meticulous searching, my album neared completion. This is where things get interesting for most collectors. Some become Full article at the source>

By: American Federal (American Federal Rare Coin and Bullion)

There’s one thing I find incredible. Most people I talk to have bought for the right reasons. They want to protect their hard earned cash and hopefully make a little money too.

Most investors lose money even when gold and silver go up. The reason is simple. They are sold the wrong coins.
You see, many dealers care more about their bottom line than your investment. They sell overpriced numismatic coins – many of them are very common coins. OR, they sell you Modern coins that are high grade and/or low mintage BUT at such high Full article at the source>

Did the Ancients believe the Earth was round?

February 11, 2015 in Ancient Coins, Blogs, Coins, Collecting, Education, Greek Coins, History, Numismatica, Numismatics, Roman Coins, World Coins

The Globe of Crates

By:

A debate over whether the ancients knew the world is round has been simmering for centuries, and still pops up now and then. In the February 1998 issue of The Celator, Michael Marotta presented a well thought out argument for the affirmative (“Ancient coins show they knew it was round”).
