NZC now in museum collections

Coins | user_5280

Hi. This is my first post. I'm a newcomer to numismatics and have created an educational "conjoined" numismatic called "NET ZERO COIN" which is now in the permanent collection of four museums: The British Museum, the National Hellenic Museum, the ANA, and the ANS. I hope you like my first foray into the industry. It's designed to teach about the fundamentals of currency value as well as stock market principles. It's very unique in that there are two separate numismatics (a coin and a minted brass card) which together form a Set with matching serial numbers. It's also the first coin to commemorate the world's oldest computer, the ancient and mysteriously complex Antikythera Mechanism (c. 205 BCE). Lastly, I've made the card portion of this numismatic Set a "charter member" card, lasting through infinity, and anyone who purchases one is automatically enrolled in the charter member program for my startup, The Sports Index Inc., an innovative company which owns the trademark to "The $ports Index," the world's first index of publicly traded companies exclusively involved in sports (E.g, Nike, Brunswick, International Speedway, etc.). We're at www.thesportsindex.com. More to come. We welcome you to join the team, and at the same time be part of history and own our history-making numismatic Set!

Museum Showcase: A closer look at the 1787 Brasher Doubloon

National Money Show | ANA Official Post | ANAStaff

The Brasher Doubloon has a mystique all its own among American coins. Produced by Ephraim Brasher, a well-known New York jeweler and goldsmith and a neighbor of George Washington’s while he stayed in New York, the Brasher Doubloon is based on the weight standard of Spanish-American gold coinage and was valued at $15. These pieces were the first gold coins produced in the U.S. intended for circulation. The story behind the creation of these pieces highlights a time when American money was not yet standardized and when private citizens could produce coinage, as Ephraim did. The Brasher Doubloon is the first truly American gold coin and is the forebear of all gold struck by the United States.
