The Panama Pacific International Exposition Commemorative Coins

Young Numismatists Exchange | The Error Collector

The 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition commemorative coins were made to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal. The sale of the commemorative coins helped fund the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. The Panama Pacific International Exposition was held in San Francisco so all of the commemorative coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint.

Finds + Purchases of the Past Few Months

Finds + Purchases of the Past Few MonthsHunt Update #7Okay, last blog, I said expect this blog in ten days. Sadly I'm very late, and I have been very busy, in fact, so busy that I missed the Annual YN Auction. Yes, I missed the entire thing. I didn't get even a grab bag, but don't worry, because the amount of coin finds I've had recently sort of makes up for it, and just so you know, everything in this blog is going to be about those finds, because yes, this is a built up total of so many finds in the last four months. Also, some of these finds I may brag about, just because I'm still so impressed I found them. Enjoy!As I've been coin roll hunting, I've noticed that if you find a good bank, the odds are that you'll find some good coins there. A good bank will be larger than other local banks and/or credit unions, and it will generally be closer to your house or apartment for quicker trips, and of course, it is good if the tellers there are friendly and will allow you to come there and purchase coins without restricting what you can buy.I've recently found such a bank, and my finds have doubled, if not tripled, from what I had found at a smaller bank. You will most likely be astounded at some of these finds, as I know I was surprised to so suddenly be getting CRH coins that many hope to find, but fewer actually find them.So, using my not-patented-but-easy-method-to-order-my-finds, or just my Denominational Ordering Method, I present to any and all reading, my finds and purchase of the past few months:CENT

Coins of the German States: Kingdom of Hanover

Young Numismatists Exchange | Coinyoshi

Ok. I am running out of German states I can write a coin blog about. So I have been looking at other ideas. I was thinking: African Colonial coins? No. Italian states coins? Probably later. Pre-Columbian currency? Probably not. More Great Empires? Definitely. And that is where our story is going this morning.You may be wondering: how does that relate to Hanover? Well, hypothetical reader, I'm glad you asked.

Coins of Great Empires: Spain and the New World

Young Numismatists Exchange | Coinyoshi

The idea for this blog came from unlikely sources: a boring eighth-grade study hall, a game of chess, and my school library’s 972 section. I had already finished all of my homework (read chapter one ofTo Kill a Mockingbirdand do 11 trigonometry problems) and was bored. So I decided to play a game of chess on my computer. My teacher told me to stop and do something productive. I went to the library and found the 972 section about the Spanish Conquest. I picked up a book about the Inca emperor Atahualpa and started flipping through it. Then something caught my eye. It was a picture of a Lima gold doubloon. I looked over and saw a poster about a trip to Spain centered on colonialism. I knew I hadn’t done a Coins of Great Empires blog in forever (my laptop broke last March and money.org was blocked on school computers last year) so I decided to do one about the coins of the Spanish Empire.
