Pocket Change

Coins-World | user_89356

This past weekend my wife and I visited my mom for a few days. Knowing that I collect coins and have a general interest in pilfering through pocket change, my mom saves for me what she can. Since it had been a while since my last visit, she had plenty of coins stockpiled for me.

Coins of the Russian Empire in 450 words

Coins-World | Coinyoshi

One thing before I get started with the blog: I am not doing anything else very long. It is very hard to do research on a broad topic and then write about it. That leaves more room for mistakes and is also less fun to write. I guess I will stick with 450 words for a while :)

The Classic Commemoratives of Canada

Coins-World | Mokie

The classic commemorative period in the U.S. ran from 1892's Worlds's Columbian Exposition Half Dollar to 1954's George Washington Carver/Booker T. Washington commemorative. It was a pretty good run with 58 different coins in gold and silver. Included in that 58 were 48 silver half dollars, 1 silver quarter, 1 silver dollar, 5 gold dollars, 2 gold 2 ½ dollars, and a gold 50 dollar. This only reflects a type set total and does not account for all the different years, mintmarks, and varieties to be found in the classic commemorative set. I would consider that a pretty prodigious output over that 62 year run.
