Franklin D.Roosevelt

Medals | Mike Burns

Hi. I have been collecting the Presidential Coin and Chronicles set before they were called that. The first one was done in 2006 and it was of Benjamin Franklin. The same format continued with President Lincoln in 2009. That was the hardest to get and I was lucky to get it last year. I do have them all. The reason I'm writing about this great man and President is because his set was the first with a reverse proof presidential coin. The mintage was 17.000. If you remember it sold out in twelve minutes.

Special Mint Set?

Coins-United States | CoinLady

I recall the Special Mint Sets made from 1965-67. Although they were not proofs, they were nice in their own way and provided a set of coinage that was the best the Mint offered in the first years of non-silver coinage. The sets were not that popular with collectors. The half dollar was 40% silver, no other silver, and the issue price was $4. Compare that to proof sets of the previous years, with three 90% silver coins, selling for $2.10.

2009 T- REX

Coins - World | Longstrider

For your discerning viewing is my new-old specimen of a 2009 Canadian 4 dollar T-Rex. My photos do not do it justice. This is a one ounce silver coin rated at $4 dollars Canadian. Besides the proof-Like finish, the Dinosaur is in an unique aging affect that is unique to each coin. Pretty cool, yes?? The coin is 34 Millimeters in diameter with a metal weight of  15.87 grams of 99.99% silver. It is designed by Kerri Burnett with Her Majesty on the obverse by Susanna Blunt. It has a, I would say, low mintage of 20,000. This particular coin is #13,846. For an kid, no matter how old, I find this a fantastic dinosaur coin. Thank you for looking and commenting on my T-Rex coin!

2015 VOLCANO VESUVIUS-POMPEII

Coins-World | Longstrider

   Here I have, for your enjoyment, a unique specimen of a 2 ounce silver coin. Specifically, it is a 2 dollars New Zealand, face value, of a Niue coin minted by the Mint of Poland in 2015. It is 99.999% silver. The finish is an antique type with real lava from the area and selective copper plating. It is 50.00 millimeters in diameter and has a very limited mintage of just 688 pieces. A lot of variables for one coin!  I was lucky enough to receive this coin as a gift. My wife felt, as an Italian, I should own this piece of world history from my ancestral home! The coin comes in a beautiful wooden presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.  The obverse side is convex struck in High-Relief is a depiction of the volcano itself. The reverse side is concave and includes a half sphere of lava material from the region. It is embedded in the center. I hope you enjoy this coin as much as I do. Thanks for looking and your comments!
