My Trip to the Smithsonian National Coin Collection!

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Hi everyone, I just went to the Smithsonian National Coin Collection! I saw some really cool coins (and bills), including the one and only 1849 double eagle, the 1933 double eagle, and three 1804 silver dollars! Oh, and also one of the five 1913 liberty nickels (very cool)! I would recommend going there. Now, for the pictures! The first one is me beside the safe door that locks the exhibit (face reveal!). The second one is the 1849 double eagle (pretty scratched up). The third one is the 1933 double eagle. The fourth, fifth, and sixth are the three 1804 silver dollars. The seventh is the side of a Saint-Gaudens double eagle (really thick)! The eighth is a 1913 liberty nickel. Oh, and a bonus, YNs get 100 YN dollars for visiting this very exciting coin exhibit! Anyways, thanks for reading, and see ya!

Just for clarification, this is located at the National Museum of American History in DC, correct? I’m going to have to make this a destination, considering I work in DC. Definitely some fascinating numismatic pieces on display. Thanks for sharing.

Personally, I would highly suggest that anyone who collects to add the museum to their list of places to see. As you've mentioned, they have some very nice displays of specimens one could only dream of being the caretaker.
