Hello! :)

| ZanzibarCoins

Hello all! It has been a very, very, depressingly long time, but I swear I am not dead lol. Just incredibly, incredibly swamped with school, work, homework, and planning events such as prom and graduation, and creating the yearbook, and etc. and etc. I know this is going to sound insane, and perhaps a little bit unbelievable, but I promise I am not exaggerating... I haven't had time to sit down at a computer unless its been to work on writing a paper for school in literal MONTHS. It's depressing, especially since, not only have I been longing to get on here for months, but also to have some time to sit down and work on some of my books that are currently in progress. I have missed it on here a lot!While I cannot promise a blog post continuing my large dollar coin series within this week and be in full confidence that I'll be able to get it done - given how much homework my teachers are so fond of assigning (literally just last weekend I had two papers to write and two tests to take! Then this weekend, I had one huge test, a huge math assignment, and then another paper for forensics. Sigh.), and also how much time I spend at work - I do promise to get it written and posted soon! I also promise that, after graduation, I will be much more active on here, during the eagerly-awaited, homework-free, days of summer. :)So sorry it has been so long! I miss all y'all!~ ZC :)

Large Dollar Coins, Morgan Dollars, Part Four :)

Young Numismatists Exchange | ZanzibarCoins

Well... I just realized I never actually wrapped up this blog series. So, here we go lol. It's been too long since I've been on here -- senior year has decided to suck away all of my free time lol. That, and moving. Agh. Seventh time? Eighth? I don't know. At this point I've lost track lol. I aced that presentation though, I have yet to hear how I did on the paper that went with it, but fingers crossed... I have really missed being on here. Just out of curiosity, what are y'all's plans for this Christmas, and/or next year? I am so excited for both Christmas and the coming year. One of the things I am most looking forwards to for next year is our prom. I did not get a junior prom, thanks to COVID, but we will be doing a prom this year, and I am so excited! (I'm actually on the committee lol) But anyways, Morgan Dollars...

On School and Coins

| ZanzibarCoins

Hey y'all! I promise, I am not dead. :) I have just been struggling to balance senior year, with a bunch of AP classes, as well as an after school job, and, so far this year, haven't had (literally, actually none) any free time to myself. Like, at all. It's kind of crazy, how much time senior year demands of you (especially the homework, oy), and then when you add a job that runs from after school into the night, by the time you get home... basically there's time to eat dinner, and then work on your homework for the next day, and then collapse into your bed. So this is going to be an interesting year, but I'm hoping to figure out my schedule enough to have time for blog posts, and being active on here. Maybe if I can whack my homework out at night, and manage to not have any on the weekends, then I can blog then. We shall see. :)

Hi everyone! We have been out of town for a while, and we had a lovely vacation in Wyoming, going to Yellowstone and Grand Teton (beautiful, the both of them!!). But I'm back now! I hope to, possibly, have two posts today, because I was working on them a little while on the road, but the second one isn't done yet, so we shall see... Anyways, Morgan Dollars part two! The hunt for a designer, a model, and a solid idea for the design! Here we go! :)

Large Silver Dollars, The Morgan Dollar, Part One

Young Numismatists Exchange | ZanzibarCoins

So my dad and I recently stumbled upon someone liquidating their late father's coin collection, who didn't exactly know what they were selling. They happened to have ten large silver dollars that they were selling for around spot (then lol, it's changing all over the place right now). When I saw what they were, I about had a heart attack from pleasure. My dad had originally planned on purchasing them simply for their silver content, but as it turned out, two of them were Peace Dollars, and eight of them were Morgan Dollars! And half of them were in really good condition too! We have added them to our large dollar collection (technically a Morgan Dollar one, but since it contains some Eisenhower Dollars, and now Peace Dollars, I'm calling it that lol.), and I thought, why not blog about them? Because they, Morgan Dollars, right now, are simply gorgeous. The design is classical, elegant, and breathtaking. The weight and size are delightful, and the story behind them is a cool one.
