American Women Quarter Program

Coins | CheerioCoins

At my coin club meeting last week, I got a bag of 100 Canadian cents and to my surprise many were dates I already had. I also bought a 1932-D Washington quarter key date in G-6 for $35, and bought the new Wilma Mankiller quarter which inspired me to write this detailed blog on the American Women Quarter Program!

Coins That Broke the Law

| CheerioCoins

While I continue to look for 1936 commems for my exhibit, I find out a lot about different coins. One coin in particular that interested me: the 1936 Robinson-Arkansas Half Dollar. The thing that interested me was that at the time the commemorative coin was being minted, Senator Joseph Robinson was living. Why did this surprise me? It is the law that no living person can be put on a U.S. coin. In 1866, Congress issued an act stating that no living person can be portrayed on American currency. Our Founding Fathers believed it was unpatriotic for living people's likenesses to be placed on money in circulation. Although he did die the year that they were minted, 1937. They are dated 1936 but were minted in 1937 (some coins are just weird like that).

Coins from the Dahlonega Mint

| CheerioCoins

About a half a year ago I visited the Dahlonega Mint Museum in Dahlonega, Georgia. For those of you who don't know, the Dahlonega Mint was a small mint in Dahlonega, Georgia that minted U.S. Gold Coins from 1838-1861, a short time of 23 years. It was created at the time when the Georgia Gold Rush was happening and due to all the good deposits it was created. The Georgia Gold Rush was the first ever gold rush in the U.S. I added that part because many say the California Gold Rush was the first. Many people in Dahlonega weren't very fond of the little mint and used Silver coins whenever they could. The director of the Philadelphia Mint at the time, Dr. Robert Patterson complained, the Dahlonega mint was just a "neighborhood mint".

Some New Things

| CheerioCoins

As many of you know, I got a bunch of things from Whitman Publishing recently. Of those things I got a Universal Coin Album and a Franklin Half Dollar album. As of now I only have one Franklin for the album but hope to obtain all of the dates in good condition. Also with the blank Coin Album I got some 40mm pages. This can be used for my silver pandas, which I have four of now. I recently got a 2011 silver panda which is the one that won't come out of it's case. One of them I couldn't get out it's case so I will try to get it out.
