John F. Kennedy commemorative coin bills introduced

July 28, 2017 in Coins, Collecting, Commemorative, Education, History, Legislation, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, US Government, US Mint, USA Coins

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

On July 17, companion bills were introduced in the House and Senate authorizing production of commemorative coins to honor the birth centennial of President John F. Kennedy. Since last year (and even earlier), collectors have been watching for a blip on the legislative radar that would signal plans for a Kennedy commemorative; as each month passed with nothing to authorize such a program, they became increasingly vocal in their disapproval. Once Kennedy’s 100th birthday (May 29) was in the rearview mirror, most of the complaints gave way to an unhappy sense of resignation.

The oversight has been all the more glaring… Full article at the source>

Must-See Rarities at Denver World’s Fair of Money

 

To celebrate the American Numismatic Association’s (www.money.org) 50th anniversary in Colorado, the ANA is exhibiting Colorado Gold Rush era rarities and Lesher Referendum dollars along with other historic and famous numismatic treasures from the association’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum at the World’s Fair of Money® (www.WorldsFairofMoney.com), August 1 – 5, 2017, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

Highlights include:

  • the McDermott/Bebee Collection 1913 Liberty Head nickel, Idler/Bebee Class III 1804 Draped Bust dollar and error notes from the Bebee collection with upside down serial numbers and other printing mistakes;
  • the High Relief and Ultra High Relief 1907 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles from the Harry W. Bass, Jr. collection;
  • a set of 1860’s Clark, Gruber & Co. Colorado territorial gold pieces;
  • a nearly complete set Lesher Referendum silver dollars from the early 1900s;
  • a 1933 Eagle, one of the greatest gold coin rarities of the 20th century with less than 40 known surviving examples from the last year that U.S. gold coins were struck for circulation;
  • and the Rittenhouse 1792 Half Disme along with the George Washington-signed document appointing David Rittenhouse as first Director of the United States Mint.

The Museum Showcase area (booth #1103) will be open during public hours of the convention in Hall F of the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th Street.

“The ANA opened its Colorado Springs headquarters building in 1967, and as part of this year’s golden anniversary we want collectors and the public to see examples of Colorado’s colorful numismatic history as well as some of the other most popular items in the ANA museum collection,” explained ANA Executive Director Kim Kiick.

“We’ve been planning for many months to create Denver convention exhibits that will be must-see for collectors and will be an educational and appealing introduction to the fascinating hobby for the general public,” said ANA Museum Curator Douglas Mudd.

“The 1913 Liberty Head nickel donated to the ANA by Aubrey and Adelle Bebee is always a favorite at the conventions. One of its previous owners, J.V. McDermott of Milwaukee, used to carry it in his pocket to show to strangers. Today it’s insured for $3 million and is one of only five known 1913 Liberty nickels,” said Mudd.

The Colorado Gold Rush era coins in the Museum Showcase will include an 1860 Clark, Gruber $20 gold piece with a design that has the word, DENVER, below a fanciful depiction of Pike’s Peak which actually is located in the Colorado Springs area, about 70 miles south.

Lesher Referendum dollars are an intriguing part of Colorado’s mining history.

“To promote greater use of silver, Joseph Lesher of Victor, Colorado created eight-sided ‘dollars’ in 1900 and 1901 from silver mined in the Cripple Creek area. Lesher quickly gave up his plans for the coins, but today these octagonal, so-called dollars are an example of Old West history you can hold in your hands,” explained Mudd.

The Rittenhouse 1792 Half Disme is an example of the first coins authorized by President Washington during the early days of the U.S. Mint.  It is being displayed by the ANA, courtesy of Brian Hendelson, President of Classic Coin Company, in celebration of the Mint’s 225th anniversary this year.

The Denver World’s Fair of Money will be open to the public Tuesday to Saturday, August 1 – 5. Public hours will be Tuesday, 1 – 5:30 pm; Wednesday – Friday, 10 am – 5:30 pm; and Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm.

Admission is free for all ANA members.  Admission for non-ANA members is $8 for adults, with children 12 and under admitted free.  Admission is for everyone on Saturday, August 5.

By: Dennis Hengeveld News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

More and more countries all over the world are in the process of switching or have already switched their circulating currency to issues printed on plastic (polymer) materials. Polymer banknotes are much more durable than traditional paper banknotes, have better security features, and are cheaper in the long run. Examples of countries that have switched part or all of their currency to polymer banknotes are Australia, Brunei, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Vietnam, among others. These relatively modern banknotes have become a very popular field with collectors from around the world. For such collectors, the earliest issues to collect… Full article at the source>

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>

The program, if approved, could commence as early as January 1, 2017, as determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, who would also determine the appropriate quantities of Uncirculated and Proof strikes.

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>

It’s official: in 2020, a woman will be on the $10 bill. Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew announced that a woman would be featured either alongside Alexander Hamilton, or all on her own. Before this, the only woman to have ever been featured solo on paper currency was Martha Washington. So who will it be this time? The jury is still out.

For some time, a nonprofit organization named Women on the $20s had been advocating replacing Andrew Jackson. The organization released the results of a poll last May that asked U.S. citizens which woman should replace Jackson. Over 350,000 Full article at the source>
