The Presidential Coin And Chronicles Sets

Coins | Mike

Well my friends there are gremlins in my pictures on this site. So we will go without them. I know many of you have never heard of these.. I believe there the nicest most educational sets the mint ever made.I will give the year the mintage of each set. 2006 Benjamin Franklin 50,000 2009 Lincoln 50,000. 2013 F Roosevelt 19,500 2014 T Roosevelt 15,120 2015 Truman. 16,812 2015 Eisenhower 16,744 2015Kennedy 49,051 2015Johnson 23,095 2016 Reagan 50,000 2021 G.H. Bush 35,000. Now these sets came with a medal the Presidential coin a bronze of the wife and stamps. They also had booklets that went from 20 to 40 pages.. I had been collecting these when no one else was. I know Franklin was not a President but it was the 300 anniversary of his birth. I would love to show you the coin in that set. Everything was going well. Till Truman. The mint decided to play there games. They made his Presidential Coin a reverse proof. Sold out in 12 minutes not 15.Now the regular collectors had to go to the secondary market. That set still sells for 300.00 or more. I was watching R. Tomaska and he said do not break up these sets. Well the sellers on ebay did that. I had pictures from eBay to show you some of the prices. Truman was sold by the mint for 57. 00. After that they went up. They also have stamps in most of them. These were done with something the mint never did before. Class. If I was to tell you one man on ebay is selling four sets for 7,900 would you believe me another selling five sets for 800.00? Check ebay. I mean there was nothing better than looking at the coins and reading about the President. The Reagan set has a silver eagle in it. Most a medal of the President. But these sets were not about coins. It was in a way but education is what they were shooting for. I am asking you to go to eBay and check them out. Some are 60.00 others like I said hundreds. And they sold for 57.00 in the beginning. And they say nothing goes up only dow n. ..I enjoy this series very much. It kills me I can't post pictures. . When the A.N.A. opens I will call and get this problem fixed. But please take a look at these. You will we what I'm talking about. Thanks for the read.Mike. ...P.S. Due to a medical problem I had to cut this short. But I will not give up. We are here to share!! To access ebay put coin and Chronicles sets.

St.Michael's Church D&H 38a Coventry Penny

Tokens | Mike

Well I could write pages on this church and the token. But I will keep it short. It is one of the most sought after tokens in the Conder series. It speaks for it's self. It's absolutely beautiful . It was built in the 14th &15th century. I could not find an architect associated with this wonderful church.The token is 28.3 grams and 36.0 mm. It's big and heavy. I will say it now. It is very under graded. Only NGC knows. This token was made for collectors. And for buying goods. It is a Penny! What I found is back in the 11th century a stone was put on the site and a church was built there called St. Mary's Priory.That church grew in stature and in status with funding from the medieval guilds. Chapels we're incorporated into the main fabric of the church. Soon St. Michael's had11 alters and seven chapels. The Chancel is a space around the alter. Sometimes it included the choir and sanctuary. This token was done by a great die sinker. Thomas Wyon. He made many wonderful pieces. As a matter of fact Wyon and Kempson teamed up on many projects. I can't imagine how long it took to make the die for this token. Just the detail . His son's also were die sinker. Even though this is a Coventry token it was left out of the set because it's a penny. The set is all half penny's. Wyon etched his name on the obverse and reverse you can only see It with a loop. It was built in the gothic style. It's spire was the tallest of all. Close to 300 feet. After a while it was the third tallest. This wonderful church soon became a Cathedral in 1918 it would still be standing. But Hitler kept on bombing the churches. St. Michael's was destroyed in the blitz on November 14,1940. They destroyed 600 buildings and killed 500 people. The picture below with Churchill the Bishop of Coventry and the Mayor was taken not to long after the blitz. They said he had a tear in his eye. ....A architect by the name of Basil Urwin Spence. Was asked to rebuild St. Michaels. He decided to build it right next to the ruins. The ruins will never come down. They want it to remind them of the destruction of war. This was in 1956 to 1962. ..Now like I said there is so much on this beautiful church I could write more. But please enlarge the pictures. This token took years to find. It's a rarity one. The D&H 38 Coventry is a triple rairty. It has edge writing saying Coventry token.They did not make many of each one. I have been looking on and of for years. Now it's home were it belongs. Hope you enjoyed the readers digest verson. Thanks. Mike. P.S. THE STAINED GLASS THAT THEY FOUND THEY PRESERVED. IT WAS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF THE TIME!!

Problems.With the Mint

Collecting Tips | Mike

Well the problem with the mint it did not start with the sale of the Morgan Dollar. It started years ago. Years when some of you have not been here.. We have a saying buy what you like. I have done that with the mint simply because I only buy the sets for my books. I had been collecting a wonderful set called The Presidential Coin and chronicles set. This set stared with Benjamin Franklin. I know he want President . . Then Abraham Lincoln. These sets were great. Till the mint made one of Truman with a reverse proof coin. ..What happened they lowered the mintage to 17,500.and made one of than Coins a reverse proof. These sets were not selling out. Till the mint pulled that trick. it was gone in 12 minutes. People.who never even knew of the set wanted this. So it became the man made rarity. The problem I believe started there. The Mint could sell out there products fast . It continues from then. There were more the 2016 Congradulations set mintage 5000. It still calls for high prices today. Then came the emergency sets.This I will never understand. They had another mint and make 250,000. What I would like to know how come there are still for.sale.? Then during the American Eagle set came rare Eagles.please give me a break. I know covid had allot to do with the emergency sets. But I get the feeling more were made than what they said. Now they can't be trusted. I believe Ryder has created his last mess. How about all those sets for kids were did they go? Well one set had a "problem" and the adults bought them. ? Really were that dumb. Don't forget the famous letter the one that said the above ground silver is low. If that was true silver would be 100 a ounce. Letter sent by Ryder! .Now I have mentioned just a few . Forget the bullion gold one tenth ounce. The mintage were nuts and still are. So what is the problem. For one people had programmed there computers to order getting many more than allowed. I had two bots ordering I am not a robot. Ten percent to the 18 bulk buyers.. That's nothing. . If the mintage is five thousand thats five hundred.. Five hundred we won't see. So to sum it up my friend Mokie put it very simple. You make these special coins make five hundred thousand. Get rid of bulk buyers all 18 of them. That stops the high prices in the secondary market. All this said more people were able to get there coins then ever before. But what about the San Francisco proof. 200,000 mintage . Sold out in 15 minutes. I got mine at 12: 13. No one said a word about that. And it was the next day. The fix was in !! Your absolutely right. They went back to there old tricks. Buy what you need for your sets and books they don't sell out. But I think the mint has been caught . Ryder will have to answer allot of questions before congress! I did not list all the mints tricks there are to many. I noticed the two and a half ounce medal is still for sale for160.00. How many do you want?

More Conder Tokens

Tokens | Mike

Hi. Yes this will be a short blog on some of the buildings on Kempson tokens. The ones I chose today are a few of the buildings still standing from the time they were built. Some are so good it looks like Kempson took a picture of them.. The best part is the years these buildings were put up. I'm not talking 1797. Some of these were built in the 1300's the 1500's. and so on. Just think of that for a moment. The English were excellent record keepers so the dates were not just put on these. You can say some went over rehabilitation but the original face of the structure is the same. Now Kempson almost seems like he knew these would still be around for hundreds of years even some of the gates that protected the city still stand. They are beautiful works architecture. The wall that encircled the city parts still stand. Doing research I said I wonder if some of these are still standinng. I went to work and i was surprised. St.John's church later became St.John's High School. I wrote a journal of these at N.G.C. A few days later I get a message from a fellow collector . He said I went to St John's school there I grew up in Coventry.. Small world. I asked him if he or if he knew of others that lived there if they had any of these tokens. He said none. Passed down from his family he was told they used them. Now I bet if I continued I will find more. This is something I thought of after the set was finished. The other tokens I collect many are still standing. Not just Kempson but others. Cathedrals ,government buildings. If you check Kempson other set of building of London many still stand. Some were destroyed in WW. 11. Hitler had an obsession with Coventry. He bombed it a lot. One famous Cathedral. St. Paul's he wanted destroyed. He felt it be could level this Cathedral it would take the resolve from the people and he could take England. He sent over 200 bombers and St.Paul's still stands. The people stayed inside and put out the fires. It was built if I remember by Wren. It's in the heart of London. One thing NGC graded many Red Brown the token below it looks like the lights are on!! St.Marys Sorry I got it the topic. That's ok the two are connected. St. John's token and picture like I said look so much alike. The same with Bablake and St. Mary's Hall. St. Mary's is used as a catering hall today and ceremonies. If you look at the token and the picture there is a wonderful likeness. . I will end this short blog on these wonder tokens and buildings. I hope.you see the talent of this man. We need people like this working today the old way. The way commens were done and older.coins. No lasers here.!!Be well be safe!!

More On Conder Tokens

Tokens | Mike

Well my friends. I decided to write another blog on these beautiful arts in copper. They tell many story's . Story's about how it was to live in 18 century England. We're the Monarchy said no silver no gold. How were they going to survive. Britain was involved in Many wars and even a civil war. They had no money to speak of. Sure the King and Queen had there gold and silver. They even allowed some coinage to be made. This was the time of George The 111. Yes the battle for our Independence had much to do with this. There is one particular token it looks like a church. Built around 1340 . It's name was St. Johns. I wrote a journal about it at N.G.C. Shortly after I get a message from a fellow collector. Not only did he live in Coventry he went to that same building during high school. Sure it was probably refurbished but the outside is still the same . That's only 678 years. Coventry was bombed during WW 11. Many of the gates and buildings survied. So to get back to the tokens Matthew Boulton had built the SoHo mint. Now Britain was way ahead of other country's as far as coins were made. The Soho Mint operated on steam presses. They made 80 a hour. But it probably took weeks to make the dies. They had great engravers. That's why there are so many of these tokens. On the edge it would say where you could redeem these tokens. But collectors also noticed the workmanship and collectors noticed this and collected them . That's why so many are in MS after 224 years and longer. I found one of the first made in 1761 by a man called.Toke. He owned a farm and made thess. It was located in Kent. Depending on what the edge writing said ment how much they are worth today. That's why you will see a reference number like 214 a, b ,c. Let's say b they only made so many that meant it was worth more. There is another token below that has George Fredrick Handel. Peter Kempson made a set of Coventry tokens with just him on the reverse. He was loved in Britain but born in Germany.. Those go for a very high price today because they are very rare. . I know I'm all over on these. But you get the idea. They were used for money. The were made in a half penny and one penny. They were collected. They helped a country that was close to bankruptcy. Me I was lucky to find these. Look at one with a loop and count the bricks even the cobble stones in the street. The best part is there are still those in Red and Brown. One I have is proof like. To get a coin made today to be proof like takes allot of work . I believe this one was first of the die. They saved Britain I believe. . The prices of these have gone up allot. I have to stand back and say how bad do I want this.. There sold.raw at auctions. The quality ones.. There are still many. I could go on and on about these. Conder collectors do not slab there tokens. But the ones that are so beautiful should be. I believe in protecting them. I hope you enjoyed this. They do have classes on these at the ANA. They were made into the twentieth century. I will write a blog on those . Take care be safe and be well. Please enlarge PICTURES!!!

WHAT IS A CONDER TOKEN??

Tokens | Mike

Hi everyone. Many of you have heard of or read blogs on Conder Tokens. Some have never heard of them. I will try to keep it simple. Back in the 18th century Britain was in very bad shape financially. With the wars they had they were near bankrupcy. Now what happened next is they started to make these tokens. Just like we did in the Civil War. The difference they had terrific die sinkers and manufacturing. Now I will not list all of the great die sinkers I will tell you about Peter Kempson.. He was one of them. Now a person by the name of Conder noticed these showing up and he was the first to document them. They became Conder tokens. Now the purpose was to be able to buy things. On the edge there was a writing on most but not all. They made half penny's and pennys. The edge writing would tell you were you could exchange these for products. And also the price of the token. These tokens were made of famous people famous sites political and for buying goods. The token you see below is the Soho Mint. They made most of them there a few were made privately. Now your in the 1700' s to make a token wasn't easy . Just the die would take time. The Soho Mint and below made 80 tokens at a time. They used steam presses. And they came out beautiful. I have a set it took five years to put together. It has 19 tokens and they were made by P. Kempson. He also made a set of England thirty two tokens. I have never heard of a set of these. They would be worth a fortune. He made this set of Coventry England.famous gates that protected the city. Famous buildings. He has four reverses plus the fifth the Handel reverse. Three he would put a period after certain letters. Then he made the very rare Handel reverse. There will never be a set of that. They were very rare. The workmanship got my attention. The set I put together is the only one known. N.G.C. agreed but couldn't put it on the label . So instead they put my name on them. It took two years to find the last one. They grade from MS 63 to MS 66 with some red brown and a proof like. . These tokens are 244 years old and look like they were made yesterday. The token below shows the token how I bought it. I knew it would grade MS. I sent it in and N.G.C. contacted me saying there was something on it and they could remove it. The graded one is what it looks like after cleaning. This one is not in the set. . There are so many of these Conder tokens. You ask what are they worth. Some hundreds of pounds. The George Washington's token graded MS 61 sold for 25,000 dollars. Yes they have very good prices. But then again your buying art on Copper and bronze. They have so much history. Such workmanship. You can count the bricks and the windows. The cobble stones. This was there tallent.. The token below is of Cardinal Worsely. If you watched the Tudors the story they told of him was not right. Henry the VIII actually liked him . He did not have him imprisoned and he did not kill himself. The gate was dedicated to him he was born in Ipwitch! Many of these were sold at the time to collector's who kept them in this condition. My set is on the web put in complete Coventry set tokens it should come up. Well I hope you enjoyed this. Those of you who want to learn more I will be happy to help. Just send a message. I'm in an auction now for a very special token. Once a week. Druids Revenge sells them in ebay. Take care be well!

The Smallest Biggest Medal

Medals | Mike

Hi everyone. A couple of weeks ago I saw a medal of Abraham Lincoln. It was at an auction. I will describe the medal I saw. It was made of copper 7.28 gm and 35mm. It came in three sizes they had two. The weight by the way includes the ribbon . He is facing right. The obverse reads centennial of Abraham Lincoln MCMIX. Also the designers name is under his neck. B.L.Pratt in small letters above the year. Who by the way studied under Augusta St. Gaudins. And also made the U.S. Gold 5 Indian Head... Now that's just the beginning. The reverse has an eagle with outstretched wings with an Olive Branch in his talons. Then the famous words. He had many but they chose these. "The Government of The People By the People Shall Not Perish From the Earth" Under that there is a Fasces. A Fasces comes from the Latin word meaning bundle. Bundles of wooden slats sometimes with an axe and the blade being seen.. The medal itself is uncirirculaded and has a beautiful Patina on it. Now that's allot for a small medal. The Fasces goes back to the Romans you will see it in other coins. It is rapped most of the time in leather. Now it came in the original cardboard holder with plastic protecting it. This is from 1909. It has gold embossed lettering on the face. See picture bellow. In the reverse of the holder there is a typed message. It reads "Official Medal Issues by the State Of New York Under Authority of George W. McClellen Mayor of New York Febuary12,1909. (Medal Designed By Bella Lyon Pratt)." Now you didn't expect this beautiful medal to take so much time to describe. But big things come in small packages. This medal was taken care of. Yes the holder is beat up a little if look how old it is. It's actually in great shape for its age. It did it's job I just wish I had the name of the person who owned this. It was made at the Whitehead & Hoag company in New Jersey. The designer Pratt lived from 1 867 to May 18 1917. Now my feelings. Medals come in all sizes and shapes. Here we have a small medal that contains so much history. It truly is a piece of our country and history When I saw it I thought it was a cent with a ribbon. Then I read the description. I couldn't believe it. You have Lincoln and the words he

The American Buffalo Nickel

Coins | Mike

Hi I hope everyone is well. This blog is not about the set about American Buffalo Nickles. It's about one. The three legged buffalo nickel. This coin has been called Americans coin. It is known everywere. James Earl Fraser created a great piece of American coinage. But since 1937 Americans have been looking for the one made in Denver.. Why it has three legs. Now I have written blogs on this set a few times. But never on this particular coin. I would get messages about this coin and the message would read why did the mint strike a coin like this. .Well I have to blame the machinery and the employees. Now there was a die clash without a nickel planchet in between the die and when the feeder sent it though there was a clash at that point in the coin. Now the employees stepped in and they were going to fix this. What they decided to do made one of the best varieties that is known today. You can see it with your eyes. They metal that was there had to be removed. So they polished it. Good idea. This was Mr. Young's idea. So they polished these nickels till the error was gone.Upon looking at it they did a great job. To much. They polished Black Diamonds leg away.!! It became one of the most sought after varitys. Everyone was looking for one. Now a friend of mine Kevin Leab was talking about it. I realized I didn't have one. I checked ebay and there were very few left. So I won a auction. I had my Black Diamond Nickel.. I waited to long. Thanks to Kevin and his son Andrew I finally got one. It's a great coin. This set was made in three mints. P.D.S. It's one of James Earls Fraser greatest coins. It's made of 75% copper and 25% nickel. It weighs 5 grams and it's 21.2 mm. Who thought that a coin of this makeup could become so famous. The first one has two types. One on a mound and then they changed it to a straight line so there would be less were. In the words Five Cents. I didn't now how good it was to own this coin. If you ever get a chance you might want to look into it but buy it certified. There are to many counterfeits out there.. I have the two charts below they show what to look for . P!ease enlarge the so you won't get caught short handed. Actually that's a tribute to a coin. They counterfeit the great ones. There wanted and they will do what they have to . Now a variety like this doesn't need a long blog with allot of technical terms. Why no one has written one before about this great American coin is unknown. The picture below shows he was in Central park zoo between Black Diamond and the coin you can see the buildings outside the park. Well I want to thank all of you who took a few minutes to read this. It has the facts and it's easy to read. Be well Be safe. P.S. AS OF MAY 24 THERE ARE TWO RAW COUNTERFITS ON EBAY IT SO OBVIOUS IT'S JUST SICK THEY CHARGE ALLOT FOR THESE..GET THE MONEY GET OUT BUY CERTIFIED. NOT RAW!!

Kennedy's Trip To Ireland!And a Great Set

Coins | Mike

Hi everyone. Recently Long Beard mentioned that the Bank of Ireland had released a set to remember Presidents Kennedy's 50 anniversary of his trip to his ancestral home in Ireland. I must admit I didn't know about it. But I did find one very fast. The set was made in 2013. It had a one ounce silver Proof coin worth 10 Euros. It also has a one gram gold 20 Euros. Now Irish gold is ten Karat but they use all karat gold... Despite its size they were able to get all the information on it. He was the first sitting President to visit Ireland. The first was Ulysses S Grant after he left office in 1879 and was on a world trip with his wife. Twenty two Presidents can trace there heritage to Ireland.that's a very impressive stat. Back to the coins. The silver is sterling .925. The gold is.999. The silver is 28.61 mm and weighs 28.8 grms. The gold is 13.92 mm and weighs 1 grm. They made ten thousand sets. ... He went to Ireland in June 26,1963.Now he has known that his family came from Country Limerick. But as soon as he landed he had a hero's welcome. The records showed he came from a small town called Bruff. Everywhere he went it was ten rows deep. He met all the dignateries. But wanted to see the sights and some Memorial places. Of the pictures below you will see the family in a seni-circle. There is an elderly woman who has the President and everyone laughing. That's the conversation i would of loved to of heard. I checked my books on Kennedy and there is no reference to the conversation. The Kennedy's left Ireland in the middle of the great starvation of Ireland in 1847 like many Irish.there population never recovered. Per capita they are 20th in population. Those who died those who left. Some say a million it's more like three and a half million. Now he was born in May 29,1917. I think we all know the day he died. November 22,1963 just four months after his visit. They cried in the streets of Ireland also. He said it was the best trip he had ever taken. Now I was reading the Irish Post two weeks ago. They had actually found the house. They were clearing overgrowth and trees and weeds when they came across a stone house outside the town of Bruff. To the record books and sure enough that was the house. I hope they fix it up and make it a landmark. It's to bad they didn't find it before he arrived there. I hope you enjoyed this small blog on our 35 President. I always wonder what the world would be today with great men like him and Dr. King. Many other men who fought for civil rights. I would like to think the world would be a better place. They were taken to soon. He got us to the Moon. And Doc. King said the way through equality is through Education. Yes it would be a better place . Well I hope you enjoyed this brief piece of history. And the wonderful coin set.Please enlarge the pictures. Thanks for taking the time. Be safe Be well.

They Asked Me To Make A Medal!

Medals | Mike

I hope everyone is well. Now i was going thru some coins and found this medal. I knew I had written a blog on this year's ago. I went back and read it. It was awful. So I decided to write the right way.! Years ago I belonged to the Ancient Order Of Hibernians. It is an ancient order formed in 1565 by Rory Oge O'Moore.. He organized it because the BrItish were cutting the heads of Catholic Priest which was the same price as the head of the Irish Wolfhound. They say a light left on at night meant it was a safe house for.a.Priest. Now our 175 anniversary in the United States was coming up. There thinking was it you collect coins you know how to make them!.So i was volunteered to make this medal. I had no idea were to start. I knew we needed an obverse and a reverse with meaning. So i contacted our Nation Historian. Mike McCormick.. He was the best. I contacted Tom McSorley to help me with phone calls.. I called the Highland mint since I did business with them before. They were very helpful. I thought they would ask for a sculpture . You don't know what they need.Mike did his research and came up with many designs. We would disagree on this one and that one. Then he found the obverse. The American Flag and The Irish Flag from centuries before. We agreed. He added the Celtic cross above the shaking hands. Our motto Friendship ,Unity ,Christian Charity. The ribbon A.O.H. The date May 4, 1836. Now I sent it to the mint. Here was the learning part. He taught me about making the dies. How deep did we want it ? What type metal. I knew some of the process. So I just said yes. The reverse was easy . We were formed in Philadelphia and New York the same day!.So the Liberty Bell and the Statue of Liberty. Heritage and Homeland. 175 for the years. Born in Liberty in English and Gaelic.. The dates on the bottom. This did not take a week. It took months. We disagreed and agreed.The phone calls to the mint . What size do we send. Color or black and white. I asked the mint if I could have four medal made in silver proof. No problem no charge and numbered. The label says 2011 Medal.Ancient Order Of Hibernians #0002. 1OZ .999 silver PF 68 DCAM. This sounded easy but just can tell you this took six or seven months. I learned so much . From beginning to end. We ordered bronze.10,000. Now it cost if I remember 3.50 each. Or 4.00. We charged 25.00. Don't forget at this point we still defend the clergy. .But we raised funds for.charity.Any charity . . We write the checks. Everyone benifits. We never have said no to a legitimate charity. We're very proud of that. So that's an idea of some of the things . How many ? How much? Mailing, cost of shipping records. And the medal.. It's just not drawing a circle. You need a very sharp design. It couldn't be hand drawn. Putting it all together on a computer. So I saw it through. The affects of my accident had got to bad. My decades of service had to end. They did make me a life member. I had done many things for the Order. This was one of the highlights. Thanks hope you enjoyed it!So to Michael McComick who did the most. The research. He did us well with his knowledge. Without it we would still be working on it.!
