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.

Exonumia | walking liberty

Alright people i need some real help. My grandpa found a $20 bill with the serial number bleed over to the other side and he is wondering if it has any value. I have searched and found no conclusive answer only dead ends and half answered questions. I was wondering if you or any of your friends knew about the value (if it has any) and if he should keep it or not. Thanks for all the help WL

steel pennies

Coins | walking liberty

Now by now every one that is a collector knows about the wonderful steel cent that was made in WW2 to save copper. Well here is how it really went. Like I said in the beginning the US government needed the copper for the war efforts so they went into testing phase. One of the test ones was a penny struck in tin but they scrapped that idea. Until they released their so they thought miracle cent, the 1943 steel penny. This penny had an inner zinc core with steel on the top of it. When they released it they had problems instantaneously. Since back in the day coins were a part of life vending machines had a magnet on the inside that would detect if a person was trying to put in a slug instead of a coin, the magnet would latch onto the steel pennies like magnets do and people would lose money. (a slug is a round object such as a washer that people would put into vending machines or other items to get a free item) another problem is that since they were made of steel they would rust very easily, and that was a huge problem because back in the day people would work get sweaty witch made their money wet and the penny rusted. So in 1944, they took back all the cents they could melted them down and instead used bullet cases as the coin alloy.
