The Making Of A Medieval Style Club Coin, Part I: Overview

Medieval Coins | Mr_Norris_LKNS

Ever since the beginning of the Legacy Knights Numismatic Society, as its Coordinator, I've dreamed of our club having its own coin, something of which the members could be proud and represent them well, as well as be a tool for learning. Being the Numismatic Knights, of course we would want this coin to be reminiscent of a coin from the Age of Knights, made in the same manner. Ideally we'd like to be able to make some ourselves! However, we are a club for young numismatists in the 3rd through 6th grades, so we would be limited as to how much of the metallurgical arts we could perform on our own.

Columbus Wasn't The First

| Mokiechan

When I was going to Elementary School, back in the 60's, the history lessons told us that Christopher Columbus with his Ships the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria, had discovered the Americas and ultimately led to the colonization of same by the various European powers. This is partially true, colonization did start shortly after Columbus' voyages but Colombus was Not the first person to discover America. That singular honor belongs to Lief Erikson and his hard crew of Norsemen.

Numismatic book review-Walter Breen's Complete encyclopedia of US and Colonial coins.

| Big Nub Numismatics

Walter Breen's complete encyclopedia of US and colonial coins is one of the best I haveever read. This comprehensive guide enables you to take a next step in numismatic knowledge by providing several(4,000) pictures on these coins, illustrating the information it provides. A long book, but a great read, this is something you read for a good time once, an dthen read several times again, refreshing your memory on specific series, designs, or denominations. Clearly one of the best writers in numismatics besid ethe great David Bowers, Walter Breen uses his great amassing of research to fill this book to the best of his ability. Although this book is lsighlyoutdated, originally published in 1977, it still provides highly accurate information on earlier issues. A good 4.5/5 stars for me, I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn a thing or two, and anyone who appreciates a good book.
