While higher-end collectors and investors mull the effects of today’s jobs report on gold prices—or of increases in Chinese manufacturing on silver prices, or of Tuesday’s election results on, well, just about everything—bread-and-butter collectors are eyeing humbler targets. On November 22 the Mint will release the America the Beautiful Quarters 2016 Circulating Coin set.

With the price of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial likely to be $915.00 or higher, the idea of a $5.95 product offering is somewhat refreshing. The coins have no bullion value and no particular numismatic value, barring the luck of an error coin slipping into Full article at the source>

Collecting on a Budget: Affordable Standing Liberty Quarters

August 26, 2016 in Coins, Collecting, Collector Sets, Education, History, Investing, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Quarters, USA Coins

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

250-25c_1917D_Ty1_o_TMBOTH

The Standing Liberty quarter, originally produced from 1916 to 1930, is in the news this year thanks to the 100th anniversary of its introduction and the release of the centennial gold version from the United States Mint. It was intended to replace the Barber design with something more beautiful, and few collectors would argue that the issues introduced in 1916 are not among the most attractive circulation coinage America has ever produced. But collectors also know that the series has a few rare key-dates (such as the 1916) that are notoriously difficult to find in well-struck, Uncirculated condition… Full article at the source>

The U.S. Mint has shared new information on the 2016 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set, sales of which commenced on January 11 but have since been suspended until the Mint can address a packaging error.

A Mint press release notes that the error in question concerns the photograph of the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park included on the back of the set’s outer box, pictured below.

The 2016 America the Beautiful Quarters Proof Set went on sale on January 11, only to be pulled a short time later and given the uncertain release date of “To Be Determined.” Some sets were purchased and shipped before the interruption, but we don’t know how many as the item has not been included on this week’s U.S. Mint sales report. Now Tom Jurkowsky, Director of the Mint’s Office of Corporate Communications, has issued a statement explaining the decision to halt sales of the set:

2017 America the Beautiful Design Recommendations

October 8, 2015 in Coins, Collecting, Collector Sets, Commemorative, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Quarters, US Mint, USA Coins

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

turtle

The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) met in Washington, D.C. today to discuss design candidates for the 2017 America the Beautiful quarters.

The Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri inspired several strong designs, but the committee was uniformly enthusiastic about the “turtle” submission, described more than once as a “home run.” Both the sky and the white space surrounding the body of the turtle will look great with a mirror-like Proof finish, and the use of perspective — moving from underwater to the far tree-crowded horizon — will make for a compelling reverse.

Five Coins Which Went Under the Radar at the Pogue Sale

May 26, 2015 in Antique Coins, Auctions, Blogs, Coins, Coins for sale, Collecting, Collector Sets, Dollar Coins, Gold, Gold Coins, Gold Eagles, Half Dollars, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Quarters, Rare Coins, USA Coins

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

Prior to the actual sale, I wondered if it were possible for a sale with only 128 lots to have coins actually fly under the radar at the recent Pogue I sale, held in New York on May 19th. With the benefit of a week’s worth of hindsight, I’d say that the answer is yes.

Before I begin, I need to insert the following caveat. With an average lot value exceeding $150,000 the term “selling cheaply” is used with an epic grain of salt. The point I am trying to make in this blog is that at least half the coins… Full article at the source>

Collecting on a modest budget still offers thrills

May 23, 2014 in Cents, Coin Dealers, Coins, Collecting, Copper Coins, Education, Numismatica, Numismatics, Quarters, US Mint, USA Coins

The Gold and Silver Mine By: Douglas Keefe. May 21st 2014. (www.shorenews.com)

Collecting coins doesn’t have to be an expensive endeavor (remember, I said collecting, not investing). There are many opportunities to collect United States coins on a modest budget.

One examples is Lincoln Cents starting from 1959, the year the design on the reverse of the coin changed from having two wheat stalks framing the words “One Cent” to the new design featuring the Lincoln Memorial. Although the earlier design with the wheat stalks, which were minted from 1909 until 1958, have virtually disappeared from circulation, the cents with the Lincoln Memorial are plentiful. So if someone wanted to start collecting these cents, they could purchase one of those inexpensive blue coin albums that have holes for each date and mint and then start going through their coins to try to fill all the openings in the album.
