Coins | walking liberty

I was looking on the mint's website and guess what I saw. It was the list of when certain coins are going to be released and the first day of production are going to be morgan dollars starting with the CC privy mark one on May,24,2021 and the organs will end in June,7,2021. Also, they will start the peace dollars on June,7,2021 the same day the morgans end. I am really excited and hope they don't charge $100 or something like that for just one. Hope you guys have a good week and stay safe! WL (image of coins belongs to Nusmaticnews.net)

Also, all but one of the Half dimes were arrow variety. So in total, i spent $35. Another thing is that each one was only $5! Well that's all Stay safe WL

Exonumia | walking liberty

So since the US mint has released a first amendment coin I decided to make and design a 2nd amendment coin! I hope that you guys like it. It took a week to make and draw. Also does anyone know a good place to get your coins made so if i do get permission from the mint instead of just a sketch there is also a pattern. Someone under $100 though because i am low on money right now. Have a good week WL

the ring cent, a US coin that was never released

Coins | walking liberty

The ring cent was various pattern coins released because of the rising copper price. the dates are 1850 through 1851 then skipped to 1884 and 1885. they were made of billon (an alloy), aluminum, copper, cupronickel, nickel silver, silver, and white metal. in the late 1840s copper had gone so high up that it cost more to make the cent so in response a bill was drafted in 1849 by Congressman Sam F. Vinton to reduce the size of the cent. The US mint began to find ways to make the cents cheaper. one of the ways was to put a hole in the middle creating a ring-like style. they started making them in various different alloys but they ran into some problems. one was it was difficult to eject from the mint presses and two it was too expensive to recover the silver that was in them. patterns were made till 1857 then they stopped, and it was replaced by the flying eagle cent.According to numismatic historian Walter Breen, another factor in the rejection of the ring cent was that it reminded many of the Chinese cash coin, which had minimal purchasing value. the ring cent was briefly made again In 1884by Eastman Johnson. His design was somewhat cruder and the holes look like they were hand-cut. A more refined version was made but still did not make it. 196 ring cent patterns are known to exist. The picture belongs to eagle eye rare coins. thanks for reading WL

the legend of the 1964 dollar

Coins | walking liberty

Most experienced collectors have heard of the mythical 1964 peace dollar but little have heard the story of it so here it is. in the winter of 1963, the US Treasury asked Congress for funds to make 150 million new silver dollars. This made the coin collecting community rejoice until House Appropriations Committee killed all funds because of the ever-growing coin shortage. But three months later, the Senate passed a 6.24 billion dollar appropriations bill including a provision for some new silver dollars. By late January 1964, the conferees had compromised on 45 million silver dollar coins. (that is a lot!) President Lydon B. Johnson signed the legislation on August 3rd, 1964. The coins would use the original peace dollars design and they would be minted at the Denver Colorado mint. they would also be released at a few million each month. But quickly the massive and ever-growing coin shortage hit so hard it was hard to find coins not to mention the silver shortage coming in like a bullet. Before they were released 316,076 trial pieces were made and 76 of those were real pattern coins. So then the U.S mint destroyed all of the 1964 peace dollars and when they were first made also mint workers got to keep some but they were told they had to exchange them because they were going to be melted. The United States Mint Bureau has said all have been destroyed but there is a chance that some workers have kept theirs instead of returning them. That is what PCGS thing because they are offering a $10,000 reward to JUST SEE a 1964 peace dollar. Today for some reason it is illegal to own a 1964 dated dollar coin because it "belongs" to the government and will be most likely confiscated if found and announced.
