How Isaac Newton helped shape our coins

September 29, 2015 in Antique Coins, Blogs, Coins, Collecting, Education, History, Numismatica, Numismatics, Perth Mint, Precious Metals, Silver, Silver Coins, The Royal Mint, World Coins

By: Blog Team Perth Mint Blog

Milled edges on coins are often associated with Isaac Newton.

Isaac Newton is undoubtedly one of the most influential scientists of all time. He also spent 30 years running the Royal Mint, then located in the Tower of London.

The late 17th century was a time of crisis for England’s silver coinage. With many hammer-struck coins still in circulation, the problem of ‘clipping’ had become serious.

Clipping is the act of illegally shaving off a small amount of a precious metal coin for profit. The irregular shaped, rimless coins of Newton’s day made them easy to clip without detection.

And with people in continental Europe prepared to pay a high price for silver… Full article at the source>

The Fabrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre (FNMT), in association with the Casa Real de la Moneda, have launched (28th September) their sixth set of coins in the series entitled “Jewels of Numismatics,” which this year is dedicated to the 400th Anniversary of the Madrid Mint. The esteemed and historic Madrid Mint, direct precedent of the Spanish Royal Mint, was founded by Royal Warrant proclaimed by HM King Philip III in 1614. Coin production thereafter commenced in April 1615 with the minting of gold 2 escudos and silver 4 real pieces. Also in 1615, coins known as maravedís, a… Full article at the source>

Yesterday, I noticed that the 2014 American Eagle Silver Proof Coin had been updated to “Unavailable” status on the U.S. Mint’s Website. While it’s not surprising that the mint is winding down its sales of the 2014 issue this close to the end of 2015, it caught my attention because the mint has had trouble maintaining inventory for the 2015 ASE Proof.

As noted on Coin Update yesterday, there have been several weeks in recent memory during which the 2014 coin accounted for the vast majority of ASE Proof sales, while the 2015… Full article at the source>

2014box

The 2014 American Eagle Silver Proof Coin has now been designated “Unavailable” by the U.S. Mint. This doesn’t necessarily mean the mint is done issuing the coin, but it does signal a significant decline in its availability going forward.

Both the 2014 and 2015 American Silver Eagle (ASE) Proof coins have recently been on and off of back-order status on the mint’s Web site. The 2015 ASE Proof in particular has spent a lot of time on back order, slowing its otherwise robust sales. This has often left the comparatively plentiful 2014 ASE Proof to fill the… Full article at the source>

No Motto New Orleans Eagles: A Study of Condition Rarity

September 24, 2015 in Antique Coins, Blogs, Certified Acceptance Corporation (CAC), Coins, Collecting, Education, Gold, Gold Coins, Gold Eagles, Grading, History, Numismatica, Numismatics, Rare Coins, USA Coins

By: Doug Winter RareGoldCoins.com (Douglas Winter Numismatics)

The No Motto type of Liberty Head eagle was produced at the New Orleans mint from 1841 through 1860. By using CAC population figures, we can get an idea of which dates display condition or appearance rarity.

CAC is a service which is rewards good eye appeal, unlike the grading services which are grading more from a technical standpoint. In other words, a coin can technically be correctly graded as an AU55 but it may have below average overall eye appeal due to a combination of factors (dipped surfaces, detracting marks, questionable color). While CAC isn’t perfect, it does give us… Full article at the source>

ON THIS DAY Made in Australia from Australian gold – our first gold ‘coin’

September 23, 2015 in Antique Coins, Australian Coins, Blogs, Coins, Collecting, Gold, Numismatica, Numismatics, Perth Mint, Precious Metals, Rare Coins, World Coins

By: Blog Team Perth Mint Blog

Just 18 years old, the colony of South Australia fabricated Australia’s first gold coin on this day in 1852.

Strictly speaking it isn’t a coin, but a coin-shaped ingot or token guaranteed by the colony to be worth one pound.

It came about after an estimated 8,000 men left Adelaide to join the Victorian gold rush – taking with them most of the city’s sovereigns. As the first successful miners began to return with their finds, a means of turning it into coins was quickly required

With the local economy on the brink, the Adelaide Assay Office was hastily established under the Legislative… Full article at the source>

PNG Creates Accredited Precious Metals Dealer Program

(Temecula, California) — The Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.org), a non-profit organization founded in 1954 and composed today of many of the country’s top rare coin, banknote and precious metals dealers, has now created the PNG Accredited Precious Metals Dealer (PNG-APMD) program (www.PNGdealers.org/apmd).  The new accreditation program is intended to help the public learn about bullion coins and ingots, and avoid problems when they make purchases or sell.  

PNG officials caution that recent cases involving non-PNG dealers in California and Texas who failed to deliver gold coins ordered by customers underscore the crucial need for investors to know their precious metals dealer before buying or selling.

“If you don’t know bullion coins, you’d better know your precious metals dealer,” said Robert Brueggeman, PNG Executive Director.

All PNG member-dealers already must adhere to a strict code of ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic material (www.pngdealers.org/png-code-of-ethics). PNG-AMPD members now must also follow an additional code specifically regarding the buying and selling of bullion coins and ingots.

As part of the 20-point PNG-AMPD code of ethics, accredited dealers pledge to promptly deliver precious metals they sell unless otherwise agreed between the dealer and customer, and to promptly pay for precious metals they purchase unless otherwise agreed in writing between the dealer and customer.

They also pledge to furnish “sound educational resources to my non-professional customers on precious metals matters” to the best of their abilities, and must consent to PNG arbitration of all disputes involving the purchase, sale, or trade of numismatic or related items.

The complete code of ethics and list of PNG-APMD dealers can be found online at www.pngdealers.org/apmd.

“In recent weeks, there have been reports of investigators claiming customers of a Costa Mesa, California dealer reportedly failed to receive more than $17 million of gold coins they ordered.  And investigators in Austin, Texas are trying to locate an estimated $30 million of precious metal coins and cash missing from a dealer there who allegedly failed to deliver promised orders.  It is crucial that you deal only with reputable experts,” emphasized PNG President Dana Samuelson.

(Read a story about the California dealer here: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/tulving-682606-customers-coin.html.  A story about the Texas dealership is here: http://www.mystatesman.com/news/news/local/downtown-austin-vault-of-precious-metals-turns-up-/nnYS2/.)

Mike Fuljenz Admonishes Critics Of “In God We Trust” Motto

September 21, 2015 in Coins, Collecting, Currency, Education, History, Money, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Paper Money, Politics, US Government, US Mint, USA Coins

Mike Fuljenz Admonishes
Critics Of “In God We Trust” Motto

 

Statement by Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion (www.UniversalCoin.com) in Beaumont, Texas.

Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion

Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion

Some critics of In God We Trust may be ignorant of the phrase’s legal history or are deliberately ignoring the rulings of courts and resolutions of Congress.  Regarding the recent controversy about the motto’s placement on police vehicles in some communities, it’s important to remember the patriotic motto has withstood a long line of legal challenges to appear on our money and on government-owned property.

It first appeared on circulating United States coins in 1864 (www.InGodWeTrustOnMoney.com).  It has been on all our coins since 1938, became the only official national motto in 1956 with the signing of legislation by President Dwight Eisenhower, and has appeared on all our paper money since 1966.

Recent court cases include a 2013 ruling when a Federal Court judge in New York dismissed a lawsuit seeking removal of In God We Trust from coins and paper money.  The judge noted that “the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly assumed the motto’s secular purpose and effect.”

In 2011, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a resolution reaffirming it as the national motto and encouraging its display in all public schools and government buildings.

While the motto first appeared on U.S. coins at the time of the Civil War, it actually was inspired by events a half century earlier during the War of 1812.

In 1861, Treasury Secretary Salmon Chase received a letter from a Pennsylvania minister who requested “the recognition of the Almighty God in some form on our coins.”   Chase instructed Mint Director James Pollock to prepare a motto.  Pollock recalled a lyric in the now-seldom sung fourth stanza of The Star Spangled Banner: “And this be our motto – In God is our trust.”  Pollock had the words, ‘GOD OUR TRUST,’ placed on a few experimental patterns being tested in 1861 for proposed new designs for half-dollar and $10 denomination coins.

After consultations and debate within the Treasury Department, the words, IN GOD WE TRUST, first appeared in circulation on a new coin denomination, copper two-cent pieces, starting in 1864.

————————

An award-winning detailed history of the national motto, written by Fuljenz, is available free online at www.INGODWETRUSTonmoney.com.

Known as America’s Gold Expert®, Michael Fuljenz has won dozens of prestigious national and regional awards and honors for his consumer education and protection work in rare coins and precious metals.  A respected community leader in his hometown of Beaumont, Texas, Mike also has served with distinction as a consultant to the Federal Trade Commission, United States Mint and Royal Canadian Mint, and is on the Board of Directors of the Jefferson County Texas Crime Stoppers organization, the Industry Council For Tangible Assets and the Numismatic Literary Guild.

The Redesign of the $10 Bill Gets Attention

Oftentimes it’s so easy to take our everyday cash for granted. We know the basic designs well-enough to recognize a $5 from a $20 bill in our pocket, but few everyday handlers of money really think about their paper money beyond that.

But the new redesign of the $10 bill is getting some serious media attention. In early July of this year, Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew announced that plans were being made to redesign the $10 bill—and to replace Alexander Hamilton’s face with a portrait of a woman.

Silver 50c Commemorative

In 1926, Governor Charles Sale of the Hudson’s Bay Company purchased 1,000 recently issued Fort Vancouver half-dollar commemorative coins. The coins were later moved for safekeeping to the Provincial Archives Building in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In 1982, a janitor working there came down with a case of sticky fingers. But he had no idea how valuable the coins actually were.

Issued in 1925, these commemorative coins honored the centennial of Fort Vancouver’s founding and its role in developing the Northwest. The Hudson’s Bay Company helped found Fort Vancouver, thus the sentimental attachment to the coin. While the design was first created… Full article at the source>

Around two years ago, a good client from the Midwest tasked me with what seemed like a difficult but not impossible job: assemble a complete denomination set of Matte Proof gold. I upped the stakes by adding the following criteria: each coin had to be graded by PCGS and approved by CAC, and each coin had to be a different date. After a one and a half year search, I was finally able to find him an Indian Head eagle: this lovely 1914 in PCGS/CAC PR65.
