Coins | Antek

Before I get into the rest of the blog, I would like to say this blog is a bit rushed as I was a bit tight on time when writing it, hopefully you guys will still enjoy it!

The Phrygian Cap: Seldom Discussed Symbols On U.S. Coins in Numismatics.

Coins | I. R. Bama

An important but seemingly mostly overlooked feature on no less than 26 U.S. coins in various silver, gold and copper compositions is the Phrygian cap. While we ardently collect these coins, I have never seen this aspect of history discussed in the context of its importance to our history and our coinage.

Best Coin Research Sites

Coins | iccoins

A large part of coin collecting is the research aspect. There is the common phrase, “Buy the book before the coin.” This also applies to websites, as well. Make sure to do your research before buying a coin. This is incredibly important so you don’t pay too much, so you know exactly what you’re getting, and so you know if it’s actually a good purchase, among other reasons. The following is a list of my favorite online coin research websites and the reasons why, whether it be for generalresearch, pricing, or numismatic news. I have not beensponsoredby any of these companies and the list is in no particular order.

Besides Presidents Who Else has been on Currency?

Coins-United States | Yemrot

The obvious "woman" piece of currency would be the Sacajawea dollar coin, which has been circulating since 2000. However, even before that both women and minorities have been on currency. In 1886, '91 and '96 Martha Washington appeared on the $1 silver certificate (the one dollar bill) and in more recent memory in the 1980s and 90s Susan B Anthony was on the dollar coin.

War Nickels

Coins | Mr. Wheatie

I know its not really anything special but I found a War Nickel in the rolls I was searching last evening. A 1943-S to be precise it looks to be in G-4 condition. I found one of these as a youngster and noticed the mint mark on the reverse and knew it was different from the others, but as many youngsters would do I spent it a few days later. Once I realized what it was 5-6 years later I kicked myself for not saving it. About a year after that I was searching nickel rolls from the bank trying to fill the holes inmy Whitman tri-folder when lo and behold there it was a 1943-P war nickel! i bet it was the same one that i had spent several years earlier (I vividly remember the date and mintmark). The only reason I say that I think it was the same one is because in a town of 1,500 people out in the middle of no mans land, there are only so many coins. Why, one time during a town celebration a dateless buffalo nickel got mixed into coins that were being handed out as prizes to children who participated in games. I didn't get it that day........ but i sure as heck found one that matched that description about 8-9 months later!
