Exonumia | DrDarryl

Rare presentation set awarded/issued by President Eisenhower during his August 26 - September 7, 1959 visit to Germany, France and England.Sharing my on-going research. This is a complete/intact President Eisenhower's 1959 presentation set (I posted a picture at my blog before). This time I have additional National Archives and Records Administration findings in a video:1. Department of State  partially funded the presentation sets2. Memo which identifies individuals who received the presentation set from President Eisenhower in Paris, France.3. Memo to Ann Whitman (Eisenhower’s personal secretary) from White House Office staff member suggesting the use of the 48-star place card and envelope with the "coin" (thus forming the presentation set).click this --->>> (Video that I made)

A great Christmas gift

Coins | CoinLady

I was inspired when I was on Twitter yesterday. Two beautiful photos of 1881-S Morgan dollars were posted. As a longtime Morgan dollar fan, I know this particular coin is one of the most attractive in the set. Strike is good, eye appeal is usually high. Many are available in Mint State. It's not an expensive rarity. It's an old fashioned silver dollar, over 130 years old.

starting coin collecting REPOST

| user_97015

I am pretty sure it occurred when i was in 4th or 5th grade when i was working in my garden i found a large metallic colored coin (like a half dollar color) buried in the dirt. when i uncovered the coin the date was 1971 but the type of coin (denomination) was covered with a gold rapper that was stuck to the coin. i thought the coin was a half dollar because the coin was a lot bigger than any coin i have ever seen. not knowing much about coins or coin collecting i decided to use scissors to scratch off the wrapper and found out that it was actually a dollar coin. never in my life have i seen this type of coin and a dollar coin of this size. it turned out as you may have guessed to be a 1971 Ike dollar.
