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!

I looked back on an old W quarter blog and thought it could use a redo. This blog is the second and is about the 2020 West Point mint quarters. In 2020, they put a V75 Privy Mark for the 75th Aniversary of the end of WWII. Enjoy!

How Many 2022 Nickels? And a SRB Circulation S!

Coins | CheerioCoins

I know I just blogged yesterday but today I got some great coins! I just this morning went to the bank to get some quarter rolls. In total I got 50 rolls or $25 worth of nickels. They were just normal with a few 2021 mint wrapped rolls. That’s when I opened a 2021 mint wrapped roll and found a 2022-P nickel! This was exciting and my second 2022 coin. To my delight there were two 2022-P nickels found in that roll. I frantically sorted the next few mint wrapped rolls and found lots more 2022 nickels. I kept sorting these rolls and some quarter rolls I also got from the bank. In the end I found 133 (I counted them for you!) 2022-P nickels each in mint state condition! I found nothing else because they were mainly 2022 and 2021 mint wrapped rolls.

Liberty Walking Half!

Coins | CheerioCoins

My highly anticipated 1947-D Liberty Walking half dollar just came in the mail. I have been waiting about two weeks and am excited it finally came! It came with a grade of VF 20 or Very Fine 20. I can see why they have it that grade because there's a lot of wear and marks along the coin. Even though the grade isn't the greatest I still like this coin and am happy to add it to my collection.

Coins | CheerioCoins

I was researching Great Depression Era Coinage for a article that I was doing for the YN literary contest and stumbled across a story worth sharing. Today I will talk about how Laura Gardin Fraser won the Washington Quarter deign contest, how John Flanagan's design got minted instead, and how she got her well deserved deign back on the 2022 quarter!

“My New Gang of Buffalos”

Coins | CheerioCoins

A few days ago I visited Florida to visit my grandma. It was only a short visit but when we were looking for things to do. That's when we saw a coin shop that was open nearby! We drove over to a musty looking build that had not just coins but also antiques. As we looked around there were mostly slabbed coins in a glass case. We got to know the owner a little bit and he gave advice and told stories about coin collecting. He was mainly selling and mainly collected silver. That's when he gave me a stack of dateless Buffalo nickels and a Type 1 1913-D Buffalo nickel as we'll. He told me he got each one for 6 cents and that they were inexpensive to him so he gave them to me and my brother.
