June 2022, YN Auction Review

| CheerioCoins

This YN auction was not the greatest I will say. I only bid on two of the coins but I still got excited about something...



The yearly YN auction is happening soon! Sign ups are out now and I've already signed up. I'm waiting for the catalog to come out so I can see what coins I would like to bid on. It shows the gold coin which is a 20 Francs Marianne Rooster French coin. It can be worth from $340-$510 depending on date. It has a rooster on the back which is really cool but unfortunately the gold coin usually goes for 1,500-3,000 YN dollars and I don't have that much so I probably won't win it.


The first coin or Lot #1 is a BU 1936 Lincoln Wheat Cent and is one I bid on. It was designed by Mr. V.D.B and has a mintage of 309,632,000. It is a Philadelphia mint and is worth around $11. I could put this coin in my Wheatie folder!


The second or Lot #2 coin is a BU 1982-D George Washington 250th Anniversary of Birth commemorative Half Dollar and has a reverse of 20 YN dollars. It was designed by Elizabeth Jones and has a mintage of 2,210,458. It is 90% silver, 10% copper, and is worth around $18.


The third coin or Lot #3 is a BU 197(something) Roosevelt Dime, Struck off-center that has a reserve of 50 YN dollars. I bid on it and it could be worth around $20. I can't find a mintage of it because it is an error but the designer is John R. Sinnock. This is definitely a great one and I really hope I win it.


Once the yearly YN auction catalog comes out I will do a review of the highlights of it. Until then thanks for reading my blog and have a great day!

Thanks for the information. Personally, I would say that Lot #1 (1936 1c) is only worth $5 at most, according to Greysheet's CPG pricing in The Numismatist. I am hopoing to have 700+ YN$ by the annual auction if I don't win any monthly lots.

Thanks! I don't have a huge off center so that will be cool if I win it.

Good alert. A reminder to YN's. You MUST register to bid. I see kids wondering why they can't bid every year. Well done Cheerios and good luck to all.

You did ok. You know what to look for and knowing you will find it. We have to get the Old timers to donate coins. You guys deserve nice coins!!

I bid $10 on on the 1936 but I highly doubt I'll get it. It's the first thing I ever bid on. Thanks for the blog!
