Toning on Coins: What You Should Know

| CheerioCoins

Toned coins are coins with lustrous colors that make them worth an extra premium. Usually they make them look very nice but sometimes they can turn dark black colors that don’t add to the eye appeal of the coin. Lots of coins can tone but usually silver coins tone the best. Gold and copper don’t usually tone supper well but in some instances they can have really nice toning. Most collectors like toning since it adds color to the coin but some say it is distracting to the design or maybe it doesn’t look like very nice toning. Toning usually occurs over a period of time like around 20 years, although there are some exceptions. Toning is usually caused by sulfur or oxygen that reacts to the coins' metal therefore giving it colors, usually around the sides of coins. Other things like moisture or heat can also add to the toning or make it even more lustrous. Toning can also be caused by certain coin folders, albums, or holders because they have sulfur in them.

The Upcoming Designs and Programs for U.S. Quarters

| CheerioCoins

As many years of U.S. quarters have gone on, many creative, artistic designs have come out of this denomination. The first coin series for coins started with the State Quarter Program. Every year five designs from each of our many states/U.S. territories were put onto quarters. In 2010, they did the same thing except with National Parks called the "America the Beautiful" coin series, which they also made into 5 oz silver bullion coins. In 2021, the reverse featured George Washington and his men crossing the Delaware, and Washington appears to be holding a Coke bottle :) . Today, in 2022, the Women's Quarter Program has started with memorable U.S. women who have made accomplishments of all sorts. This program will go on through 2025.
