Benjamin Franklin Half Dollars: A Personal Favorite

Coins-United States | thatcoinguy

Benjamin Franklin Half Dollars were struck from 1948-1963. It was the last full coin design change before the ones we are familiar with today. It was struck in 90% silver. This was the fifth coin with an actual person, and the first with a person who had not held office as a president. The obverse has a bust of Mr. Franklin, one of the most liked, and in my opinion, interesting founding fathers to this day. The reverse of this particular 50 cent piece has the Liberty Bell in all of it's cracked glory, along with a tiny Eagle, which is the smallest of our national animal ever depicted on a coin. The Ben Franklin Half Dollar has a reeded edge. The circulation strikes were struck at the San Francisco mint, along with the Philadelphia and Denver mints. The proofs were made by the San Francisco mint, in addition to the circulation coins.

Market Irregularity

Coins-United States | Long Beard

Scrolling the internet recently for additions to add to a collection, looking at the modern United States commemoratives, an oddity appears which seems to break from the traditional values within the market place. No matter the denomination or series, the values range from low to high with many in between create a somewhat steady upward graph plot. Yet not the modern commemoratives. The subject of this weeks blog. Enjoy!

Some collectors decide to collect commemorative sports coins instead of other currency and coins. In this article, I will talk about Olympic silver and gold coins and baseball related gold and silver coins and commemoratives.

1794 Lace Manufactory 1/2 Penny Conder Token

Exonumia | coinsbygary

Lately, I have been spending a lot of time photographing old, heavily toned copper coins and tokens. Having only recently honed my skills to produce the best photos possible, I have re-imaged a number of my 1/2 penny Conder tokens. This token is currently part of my seated imagery typeset. Below is my description of the token and a copied description from the Smithsonian Institute collection. Enjoy!

Hello my Friends!

Coins | TheNumisMaster

I see a lot of new faces in the community now! NICE! I logged off for the last time (or so I thought) about 4 months ago.... but man, I couldn't quite stay away for good ;) I have been very busy starting up my final year of high school... and MAN I won't be a kid anymore in 4 more short months... CRAZY! I was able to add a few new coins to my type set since we last spoke, including an au58 1952 3-cent silver. Wonderful little coin! (No pictures at the current time). Many of you know what I planned to open a coin store for my career, but since we have seen each other I have made the new plan to join the US Coast Gaurd for my career (I estimate around 20 years there) while managing a business called Numismastery as a side hustle. Already I am designing a business outline for Numismastery, which I am super excited about. I am planning it to be a store/information source for YNs and nee collectors. Im cooking up some cool ideas, and am very exicted!Anyhow, I just wanted to poke my head back into the community for a fun minute and say hey to all my old friends and numismatic family.Your friend and fellow numismatist, Preston. And for you old-timers on the site, Cheers!

GSA Morgan Dollars

Coins-United States | thatcoinguy

When Morgan Dollars we're still in circulation (late 19th and early 20th centuries), they were actually not very popular! The public didn't like them, so many Morgan Dollar bags went into banks storage systems. Until the 1970s. The treasury ran an audit, and the long forgotten Morgan Dollars were uncovered. Soon, the General Services Administration (GSA) took hold of the project to get the Morgan Dollars out. Before the treasury found this hoard, the 1903-O Morgan Dollar was very rare. But now, it is very common in high grades. The hype built up, and soon there was lines of people with wheelbarrows trying to get ahold of a few bags worth of dollars. But after the sudden increase in demand, the lines slowly stopped, and the GSA still had a lot of Morgans (most of which were the Carson City kind) to get rid of.
