Most Valuable British Coins

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

As with my previous two articles about the most valuable Canadian coins, I am covering certain pricey coins from other countries. In this article, I will talk about three coins from one of the most influential countries in the world: England. The three coins are the 1706 Queen Anne 5 guineas, the 1933 One Penny, and the 1819 George III Sovereign. These three coins, as they all come from one of the oldest countries on Earth, have history involved with them.

More Valuable Canadian Coins

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

As the previous article states, not all valuable coins are American. In this article, I will cover three more Canadian coins that are worthy of the title ‘Valuable’. These three coins all have much history and interesting facts concerning them, and listed in order of value they are: The 1921 Nickel, the 1906 Small Crown Quarter and the 1948 Canadian Silver Dollar. All of these coins are interesting, and ones most collectors would give almost anything to own, no matter what country’s issues they typically collect.

The Most Valuable Canadian Coins

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

Canadian coins may not be as popular numismatically as American ones, but a few of them command a substantial value. One is the 1936 dot cent, a variety created by mint workers, which is one of the most recognizable coins to Canadian collectors. Even more valuable than the dot cent, there is the 1911 Silver Canadian dollar (with only 2 known in silver). The third one that I will write about today is the 1921 50c coin. All three of these command substantial prices and sell for very large amounts.

The Largest Spendable Money (In Size)

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

Money can get pretty big, and that is what makes some series such as the ‘Cartwheel’ dollars or the even older Flowing Hair dollars so popular, but today this article is about a tier above that. Several coins and bills are pretty huge and the three that will be written about today are the Canadian Million Dollar coin, the Philippines 100,000 Piso note, and last but not least, the Australian Gold Kangaroo Coin from 2012. These three currency items are simply humungous, and, while it would be almost impossible to buy two of them, they are still worth reading about.

1913 Liberty Head Nickel

Coins | Caleb Karling

The 1913 Liberty Nickel is one that has been surrounded in mystery since it's discovery. There has only been 5 known to exist, 2 of them are in a museum and the other 3 are in a private collection. It is believed that five specimens were struck at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia sometime between the Summer of 1912 and early February of 1913. One theory says that the coins were struck as advance test pieces around July of 1912, with the expectation that the series would continue the following year anyway. Another theory proposes that someone was burning the midnight oil at the Mint, and struck the five specimens before the dies were destroyed in preparation for the change to the Buffalo Nickel, which began production in late February of 1913. I do believe its possible that someone could find another one in a old bag of money or old collection. I also wonder how do they know these coins are real? It's possible that someone had made a 1913 die to counterfeitthe coin in there garage. But then later found out that they had changed to the buffalonickel and destroyed the die and the coins that they had not spent. But this is a really far fetched theory!

Uncommonly beautiful

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Morgan dollars have been popular with collectors for many years. There are many available in Mint State or close to it. Assembling a set is quite an accomplishment, with or without the 1895-P proof coin. But because it's such a big set, Morgans can be collected in different ways, such as a year set.

additional collections

Coins-United States | Conan Barbarian

after i got back home from the WFM i decided to create another modern cent collection but this time have the entire collection only brown cents. i have previously completed a red cent collection and i dropped the idea of a toned cent for now but the brown cents are going to be a little hard especially for the shield cents. so far (as of the shields) i have only found a 2011 brown but the more rolls i go through the faster it will come together. as a side note i did find 2 beautifully toned shield cents one was rainbow and the other was blue-purple.
