Thematic (or topical) collecting is very popular in the stamp community. There are collectors and clubs for a wide range of subjects, from butterflies to lighthouses and from royalty to astronomy.

A brief history of silver certificates

February 16, 2017 in Blogs, Collecting, Education, History, Investing, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, U.S. Notes

By: Tegna Liberty Coin and Currency Blog

United States Silver Certificate

Forms of currency come and go throughout the histories of nations around the world, from the Franc to the Euro, and from simple gold pieces to the standard silver coin. The U.S. is a relatively young nation (240 years old) but its currencies have changed several times since its founding. One currency lost to antiquity is the Silver Certificate, which began circulation in 1878.

A Brief History of the Silver Certificate

The Silver Certificate was created in response to silver agitation (demonetized silver) by American citizens upset with the Fourth Coinage Act of 1873, which aimed to end bimetal currency by implementing… Full article at the source>

Counterfeiting-and-Technology-coverSMALL

This winter, the long-anticipated story of paper-money counterfeiting by historian Bob McCabe will make its debut. Counterfeiting and Technology: A History of the Long Struggle Between Paper-Money Counterfeiters and Security Printing is an adventurous monument to the history of paper money and, most importantly, to the technology that created it.

At the ANA’s World’s Fair of Money in Rosemont, Illinois, last year, I had the privilege of attending a Society of Paper Money Collector’s meeting, during which a presentation on Confederate paper money was delivered. Afterward the floor was opened to a Q&A session, during which one particular question caught my… Full article at the source>

Paper money today is changing—and it’s changing fast. Close to home, recent developments have included the announcement of redesigns for the U.S. Federal Reserve Notes of the $5, $10, and $20 denominations to include women on our money for the first time in more than 100 years. Further abroad, some countries are attempting to do away with cash entirely, such as Sweden and parts of Europe that are accepting 100% digitalization and mobile banking.

Now the Bank of England is adding to the paper-free advancements by announcing Full article at the source>

The Educational Series is considered to be the most beautiful currency ever created by the United States

May 16, 2016 in Art, Blogs, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Collecting, Education, History, Money, Numismatica, Numismatics, Paper Money

By: Angela Raymond Liberty Coin and Currency Blog

In 1896, the United States released the Educational Series, an artistically inclined series of currency depicting three allegorical motifs that would become some of the most highly revered notes ever produced by our government.

For years, the silver certificate was a dull rendition of black ink featured on the obverse and green on the back but by the 1890’s, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing agreed it was time to revamp the appearance of the silver certificates. The BEP then commissioned designers known for their allegorical murals to create the artwork for each denomination. Of the 15-20 artists hired for… Full article at the source>

Alexander Hamilton’s Place on $10 Bill More Secure Thanks to Hamilton Musical

By: Dan Holmes News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

100066

The $10 bill has been the subject of much discussion lately as the Treasury gets ready to re-design the note in order to better protect it from counterfeiting. Of particular interest has been Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s stated openness to adding a portrait of a woman to the denomination.

A spirited conversation followed the suggestion, with many commenters up in arms at the prospect of the $10 bill carrying an image of someone other than the co-author of The Federalist Papers. And when the Treasury implied that Hamilton would stay on the bill even as a woman was added,… Full article at the source>

Zimbabwe P#91 2008 $100 Trillion Bank Note

As we venture home or away for the beginning of the Holiday Season, let’s take a look at the Zimbabwe P# 91 2008 $100 Trillion bank note. Yup, a hundred trillion. $100,000,000,000,000. In the late 90’s and early 2000’s Zimbabwe went through a period of unprecedented inflation caused by high import trade imbalance, too much government spending, and low savings rate… sound familiar? Even the Brazilians were amazed.

The series officially, and incredibly, starts with a One Dollar note and begins the upward spiral with million, then billion, and eventually trillion dollar notes. The engraving design is pleasing, if overly consistent… Full article at the source>

The Lower Cape Fear Coin Club will again sponsor the Azalea Festival Coin Show Saturday and Sunday.

We talked with Bob Neale, club past president, and Karen Foster, the club’s representative to the Azalea Festival.

Q. What’s special at the coin show for kids?

Foster: Gold History Corp. and people from the Reed Gold Mine State Historic Site will be letting people pan for gold again. For $5, you get a pan of dirt from an actual North Carolina mine. Don McNeely is a 30-year prospector, and he shows you how to do it. It’s worth the price just to talk to him. Also, since it’s the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy half-dollar, we’ll be presenting half-dollar sets to the winners in the Azalea Festival children’s art contest.
