YN Auction Fun!

Young Numismatists Exchange | ZanzibarCoins

Hi everyone! This blog post is a little late, since I've been working so hard on practicing for the PSAT (and then taking it) that I haven't had time for anything computer related for a while. :) This blog post is all about the annual YN auction in September!

Numismatic Story I'll Never Forget, Part 1...

Young Numismatists Exchange | The Coin Student

We all know the failure of the 2018 reverse proof set right? Over hyped just to fall to mediocrity. Well I bought 5 sets and what transpired afterwards was a moment to remember for a long, long time. For awhile I debated whether to give you guys a boring graph showing you some research and numbers and give you the short story on my experience with the reverse proof sets. Instead, I decided to bring you through a bit of that 11 day action that was an unforgettable experience for me. Enjoy.

Early Coppers Part2

Young Numismatists Exchange | Big Nub Numismatics

Continuing from my last blog post about early American coppers, I will go into detail about the Matron head, and classic head. First things first, I will share my opinion with you on Large cents. They are full of history, and are quite large, which gives them a sort of mystery that no other coin series has. The fact that they are so big, and the mintages are much less than the small cents makes them very collectable, indeed that is why I like collecting them because it is cool to hold a penny that is just under the size of a modern half dollar. Alas, I think the designs on the large cents could have been better, a lot better. I think that the large cents hold the title for least beautiful design. The Matron head gives an image of a very portly Miss Liberty, much different than August St. Gauden's double eagle. The designs just are not attractive. That being said, on to the history.

Young Numismatists Exchange | ZanzibarCoins

Hi everyone! Here is part three of my cents blog series, which features the Flying Eagle Cent. The Flying Eagle Cent was the first small cent design to be issued. The reasons that the government switched from large cents that were made of nearly pure copper to small cents that were made of 88% copper and 12% nickel are these:
