(Denver, Colorado) August 3, 2017 – With the help of nationally known television celebrity Rick Harrison and two Denver Broncos cheerleaders, prominent numismatists Michael “Miles” Standish, Jim Halperin and Orlando Rodrigo Lorenzana Williams got their heads shaved at the American Numismatic Association 2017 World’s Fair of Money® in Denver to raise money for two nonprofit organizations. The event on August 3 generated $10,000 in donations that will be evenly divided between the American Numismatic Association (www.money.org) and the Standish Foundation for Child & Family Centered Healthcare (www.sf4c.org).

Immediately after his head was shaved, Standish held up a t-shirt printed with the words: “BALD GUYS Never have a bad hair day.”

Standish is an award-winning numismatic author and Senior Grader and Vice-President of Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. Halperin is Co-Chairman of Heritage Auctions and also an author of numismatic books and futurist novels. Williams is Director of Sales at Coin Invest Trust in Liechtenstein.

Harrison, of the popular History’s Pawn Stars television program and the Las Vegas Gold & Silver Pawn Shop (www.gspawn.com), made the first pass of the electric cutter on Standish’s head and was among those who presented a donation check.  

Additional cutting was performed on Standish by coin hobby personalities including Lee Minshull, ANA President Jeff Garrett and former ANA President Ken Bressett.  

Broncos cheerleaders Brielle and Krista led cheers, signed autographs and posed for photos during the “Shave Miles” event.

A silent auction of a half dozen plaster sculptures by John Mercanti, who served as the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, also helped raise funds for the Standish Foundation and the ANA.

Miles’ wife, Andrea Mangione Standish, a certified child life specialist, launched the Austin, Texas-based foundation in 2010.  The foundation assists healthcare providers around the world to provide the tools and training they need to minimize healthcare-related pain and suffering in children.

“The mission of the foundation is to have happy, healthy, resilient kids who haven’t been traumatized by healthcare experiences.  This event was to help children get better care and to help an important hobby organization dear to me and to so many others, the American Numismatic Association,” he explained.

The 25,000-member American Numismatic Association, based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect coins and related items.  The ANA serves the academic community, collectors, and the general public.

A native of Michigan, Standish began collecting in 1973 at the age of nine.  In 2011, he was honored with the “Director’s Coin for Excellence” by then-Director of the United States Mint Edmund Moy.

He is co-author with former Chief Engraving of the United States Mint, John Mercanti, of the 2012 reference book, “American Silver Eagles: A Guide to the U.S. Bullion Coin Program.”  Standish’s 2014 book, “Morgan Dollar: America’s Love Affair with a Legendary Coin,” received the 2015 Numismatic Literary Guild award for Best Specialized Book.

$1 Million of Recently Recovered 1715
Fleet Shipwreck Coins Coming To Market

Sunken Spanish colonial gold treasure coins discovered during 300th anniversary of fleet’s demise to be offered for the first time.

More than 200 sunken treasure gold coins from the legendary Spanish 1715 Plate Fleet, recovered during last year’s 300th anniversary of the Atlantic Ocean hurricane that sank 11 of the fleet’s 12 ships, are now coming into the numismatic marketplace for the first time along with coins found on previous expeditions.  

The discovery of the latest trove by the historic shipwreck recovery company, 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels, LLC (www.1715treasurefleet.com), occurred on July 31, 2015, exactly 300 years to the day of the fleet’s sinking.  The treasure was found in only 6 feet of water just a hundred feet from the beach in Vero Beach, Florida, and this amazing find generated international headlines.

The coins range in denomination from one escudo to eight escudos.  They were struck in Colombia, Mexico and Peru and are dated in the era between 1692 and 1715 during the reigns of Spanish Kings Charles II and Philip V.  

“These historic treasure fleet gold pieces have been examined, authenticated and graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com).  All but five are Mint State, and one recovered treasure coin is graded NGC MS 66,” said John Albanese of Bedminster, New Jersey, the dealer who brokered the deal to acquire the never-before offered coins.

Highlights include a 1712 Peru 8 escudos of Philip V, graded NGC MS 64; a 1711 Peru LM  2 escudos of Philip V Peru, NGC MS 66; and a 1699 Colombia 2 escudos of Charles II, NGC MS 64, that was discovered by 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels inside a recovered bronze cannon.

Blanchard and Company (www.BlanchardGold.com) and Monaco Rare Coins (www.MonacoRareCoins.com) are the primary dealerships that will be selling the coins.

“In addition to the 224 coins discovered in 2015 by 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels there are 71 shipwreck coins from the 1715 Fleet found during their two earlier underwater expeditions in 2010 and 2013 that now will also be available to collectors for the first time.  There even are coins they discovered inside a ship’s cannon!,” explained Albanese.

“The combined estimated market value of the 295 treasure coins is more than $1 million,” said Albanese.

1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels is a group of Florida based shipwreck salvors who have focused their attention since 2010 on the exploration and recovery of the famous Spanish treasure fleets convoy.

“Our goal is to bring the amazing story of the 1715 Plate Fleet to the public.  We hope the recovery of these incredibly rare artifacts will help educate people about Spanish colonization of the New World and life on the high seas in 1715,” stated Brent Brisben, 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels Co-Founder and Operations Manager

“The discovery of gold and silver coins in sunken cannon in 2010 was an amazing recovery.  For decades, treasure hunters have told tales of treasure hidden inside of cannons, but our recovery was the first time the tale was ever validated. We recovered a 3½ foot bronze rail gun, the first bronze rail/swivel cannon ever recovered from the 1715 Fleet.  We discovered 50 gold and 40 silver coins in the breech of the cannon,” explained Brisben.

Brisben’s great-great-great grandfather, Daniel Beaver, died in another famous shipwreck, the fabled “ship of gold,” the S.S. Central America, that sank off the South Carolina coast in a hurricane in September 1857 while carrying tons of California Gold Rush coins and gold bars to New York City.

NGC has created special insert labels for the 1715 Fleet coins, including a special designation for the coins recovered from the cannon.

“Coinage of the 1715 Fleet offers up rare riches, providing researchers a unique opportunity to study the trade and transport of the day and gives collectors the chance to acquire a high-grade example of a coin from the golden shipwreck treasure of lore. A quantity of uncirculated Spanish gold coins such as this simply does not exist outside of a shipwreck discovery,” stated NGC Chairman Mark Salzberg.

“NGC worked directly with the recovery group to not only preserve the important provenance of these coins, but also the story of their individual recovery. For the first time, specific dive missions and finds are referenced on the NGC certification label,” said Salzberg.

In addition to the NGC encapsulation, each coin will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Brisben, along with the original, numbered archeological tag that was used by the expedition crew to denote each item as it was discovered and recovered.  The unique tag number is indicated on the certificate of authenticity for each coin.

The fabled 1715 Fleet convoy of 12 ships loaded with New World treasure set sail from Havana, Cuba to Spain on July 24, 1715.  In the early morning hours of July 31 a fierce hurricane sank all the ships except one off the eastern coast of Florida.  More than a thousand people were killed in the storm and resulting shipwrecks.  

On July 31, 2015, the 300th anniversary of that historic day, 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels recovered 350 gold coins, including nine extremely rare Royals.  Some of the coins were given by the company to its crew-members and subcontractors as their share of the recoveries, and all the large Royals presentation pieces were privately sold earlier this year to anonymous collectors for an average of $275,000 a piece.

“We have owned the exclusive salvage rights to the 1715 Fleet since 2010. We have never previously sold a single gold coin from our recoveries,” said Brisben.  “The story of the fleet is an amazing tale which really provides the fascination with these coins.”

A first-of-its-kind, recently discovered 1795 U.S. Flowing Hair silver dollar (http://coins.ha.com/itm/early-dollars/silver-and-related-dollars/1795-1-flowing-hair-three-leaves-two-mint-silver-plugs-b-5-bb-27-r1-au53-ngc/p/1238-101028.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515) with two separate “plugs” has been authenticated by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com) and will be a featured highlight of the Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com) Platinum Night auction at the American Numismatic Association 2016 Anaheim World’s Fair of Money, August 10.

“Many 1795 silver dollars, along with a single 1794 dollar and a small number of 1795 half dollars, show evidence of a Mint-inserted plug, apparently to achieve a correct weight for the planchet prior to striking.  Today, for the first time, we have a 1795 Flowing Hair dollar that has two Mint-inserted silver plugs, one at the center of the obverse and the other at the lower reverse,” said Mark Borckardt, Heritage Senior Cataloger.

“Each of the two plugs has a diameter of about 4 millimeters.  The obverse plug is located on Liberty’s neck, tangent to the jaw line which appears through the plug.  The reverse plug is located between the ribbon ends,” he explained.

The coin has been certified and graded NGC AU53 and is designated as 1795 dollar Flowing Hair, Three Leaves variety B-5, BB-27, R-1.

“Most numismatic researchers today agree that silver plugs were added to adjust the weight of the planchets.  While we don’t know the exact process used at the Philadelphia Mint in 1795, we assume an underweight planchet was pierced and a silver pin fastened to the planchet by means of smooth ‘dies’ in a screw press.  Apparently, the first plug on this coin was not enough to bring up the weight to the standard level of 26.96 grams, so a second plug was inserted,” said Borckardt.

The weight of the dual-plugged coin is 26.98 grams.

The consignor of the discovery coin wants to remain anonymous, and no information is available at this time about the coin’s earlier provenance.

“This unique early American coin provides insight into the early years of the United States Mint.  Its discovery 221 years after its production makes us eagerly anticipate what other numismatic treasures are still waiting to be found,” said Borckardt.

Use Caution To Avoid Gold And Silver Counterfeits, Advises Professional Numismatists Guild.

Use Caution To Avoid Gold And Silver Counterfeits, Advises Professional Numismatists Guild.

(Temecula, California) – Beware of counterfeit vintage rare coins and fake modern gold and silver bullion items now being offered in the marketplace.  Purchase only from reputable dealers, cautions the Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.org).

The PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of many of the country’s top numismatic experts.

“It is clear there is an increase in the types of fakes sold by unscrupulous dealers.  These sales of counterfeit coins are potentially a multi-million dollar problem for the public.  There’s an old saying that can help buyers avoid problems: If you don’t know coins, you better know your dealer,” stated Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) President Dana Samuelson.

“We conducted an informal inquiry of PNG members and PNG Accredited Precious Metals Dealers (APMD) about what they’re encountering now in the marketplace.  They have seen everything from counterfeits of vintage rare coins to modern precious metal items.  These include fakes of popular century-old U.S. Morgan and Peace design silver dollars to current gold and silver American Eagles, gold U.S. Buffalo coins, silver and gold Chinese Pandas, and Canadian silver and gold Maple Leaf coins.  We’re also seeing spurious gold and silver ingots,” said Samuelson.

“Professional dealers who look at classic U.S. coins and bullion items all day long are usually not fooled by these spurious items, but to the untrained eye they often look like the real thing,” he explained.

“Many of the fakes apparently are originating in China and then offered online by various sellers.  It is imperative that collectors, investors and the general public deal only with reputable, knowledgeable experts who offer a guarantee of authenticity,” emphasized Samuelson.

Two PNG members who recently were in Asia say they saw counterfeits of early 19th century Draped Bust, mid 19th century Seated Liberty and late 19th and early 20th century Morgan and Peace silver dollars being sold in flea markets in China and Hong Kong for $1 to $3 each.

Unsuspecting buyers have submitted counterfeit modern bullion coins to Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com) for authentication and grading. NGC, the official grading service of PNG, earlier reported submissions of counterfeit 2012-dated gold American Eagle $50 denomination coins.

Those particular counterfeits exhibit poorly defined details around Liberty’s face and hair, different fonts for lettering and the date compared to genuine coins and the color is different because the fakes are not composed of gold, according to Max Spiegel, a Vice President of Certified Collectibles Group, NGC’s parent company.

PNG and PNG Accredited Precious Metals Dealers must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise including bullion coins, precious metal rounds and ingots, and they offer a guarantee of authenticity for the numismatic items they sell.
