If I Won the Lottery

| Ancient Collector

Okay, you just won the Lottery and have millions of dollars (even after taxes). What coin would you buy? I don't want to hear the 1804 Dollar or 1913 Liberty Nickel because of their rarity. I want to hear the coin or coins that stir your soul because of their history or take your breath away because of their beauty.

Getting started

Coins | CoinLady

Everyone has their own personal story of getting started in numismatics. I became interested at age 11. My grandmother gave me 2 silver dollars for Christmas. One was a 1921 Morgan, the other, a 1922 Peace. I was intrigued because the coins were dated only a year apart, but had different designs. This was an era of circulation finds, when clad coinage was still new and silver coins were found in change.

An underappreciated sculptor

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Isaac Scott Hathaway designed two US commemorative coins: the Booker T. Washington half dollar, minted from 1946-1951; and the Washington/Carver half dollar, minted from 1951-1954. He was an outstanding artist, sculptor, and educator.

New coins

Coins | CoinLady

It's mid-February, and I still haven't seen any 2017-dated coins in change. I go shopping, eating, and visiting book stores quite often, and check every coin that passes through my hands. I look forward to finding my first 2017-P cent. They are turning up here and there.
