My Coin Collection

| Eriknation

A few months ago I started coin collecting I collected any coin. From us coins to foreign coins and tokens. Then one day I realized I needed somewhere to put my coins so me and my dad did some woodwork and built a box. I was very happy to have somewhere to store my coins. After that I kept coin rolling and looking in change. And now I almost have it full with my red book, Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, dollar coin, and bills. And I have lots of foreign coins as well from Japan Germany Switzerland Brazil Canada etc. My dad had found the during his travel and he said he used to ask his colleagues for foreign coins as well. And till this day I'm still collecting and go to the bank every month for some coin tolls. I also started to do projects by the ANA I started the Dollar project and finished just yesterday I wrote about Susan B. Anthony designed a coin, did a maze on the website.. It was tons of fun and I'm planning to start the early copper cents. And right now I am posting blogs to try earning YN dollars. I didn't know that you could earnem' from posting. Then I found out that you need to create a blog that's about you that's long and informative to get YN dollars. My favorite coins are any wheat cents I can find , the reason I like Wheat Cents is because they are very easy to find. And so far I have 6 of them. I have a 1936 s , 1938 p, 1940 p , 1941 p , 1946 p , and 1952 D. I also love collecting centennial coin like the Lincoln cents and quarters. Right now I have the nickels pennies and quarters but I am missing the Biccentenial Half dollar and dollar. So I hope one day I can find one. And this is basically my coin collecting story. P.S. I love this supportive community.

How I started my coin collecting hobby. (I’m sorry for clogging the blog page)

Coins | Eriknation

This is the story of how I started coin collecting. When I was almost 7 I got a coin book from my friend. It was a national park quarter set. I started filling it in one by one before long I already had the present years. I decided to take a break from collecting and I found a new interest in collecting shells and Pokémon cards. Then one day I saw this video on YouTube talking about finding a coin worth $100 dollars. It was the 1909 s V.D.B. After a week I started to search my dad's old collection and searched up the values. That was until I found out that the websites I were on had fake information. So I asked my mom if I could have a coin book. And I decided to buy the red book. Once I got it I started reading it a lot. Then I started coin roll hunting. I tried hunting all coins but my favorite coin to hunt is cents. The first wheat Penny I found was in my mom’s wallet was a 1940 p. And I hunted 20 rolls in my whole life so far and I have 6 Wheat’s so far. And I also found lots of centennials. After that I couldn’t hunt because my mom said I could only go once a month. So I decided to find loose change around the house. Then one day I discovered the Young Numismatists club. So I joined. And on the first day I completed the dollar project. By the way I signed up on feb. 26 2021. And I wanted to share my finds right away. When Mike a Coin collector told me that instead of writing five posts a day I should write long posts. So I’m very sorry for clogging up the blog page. Please accept my apology. So far I’m having lots of fun doing activities and talking to other yn’s. So this is basically the story of how I started my coin collecting hobby.

Bicentennial Quarter

Coins | Eriknation

The 1976 Bicentennial was minted between 1975 and 1976, Bicentennial means 200th year anniversary. And the United states declared independence in 1776. And the reason why there is no 1975 Quarter was because they minted the Bicentennial quarter in that time. And the U.S. Mint did not want the 1975 quarter to be a potential rare date. In 1973 The U.S. Mint held a contest for the design and the winner would receive 5000 dollars. The winner was Jack L. Ahr and created the reverse which has a military drummer and 13 stars representing the colonies. And the core of the quarter was pure copper.

Mercury dimes

| Eriknation

Mercury dimes or winged liberty dimes were minted between 1916 and 1945. They weigh2.50 grams and have 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper. This coin is very collectible because of the silver it contains. My friend once found a 1937 dime on the sidewalk. Some key dates are 1916 D 1942 over 41 1941 over 42. The 1945 S has a size of the date. If its smaller than regulaur its called. A micro s. And dimes dated 1923D or 1930 D are counterfeits. Though not many are in circulation if you get lucky you could find one. So go hoard those dimes!
