Another one

Coins-United States | CoinLady

During my shopping day downtown last week, I mentioned the beautiful selection of GSA dollars at the coin shop. Such a set would stick in the mind of any collector. But there was another coin that caught my eye. It's a coin that is not that popular and does not get its due.

The one and only

While browsing in the coin shop yesterday I spotted a classic commemorative, one of the more desirable coins. The Missouri half dollar is one of the tougher coins in the set. This coin was a nice MS-62 and would have fit into a great set.

An underappreciated sculptor

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Isaac Scott Hathaway designed two US commemorative coins: the Booker T. Washington half dollar, minted from 1946-1951; and the Washington/Carver half dollar, minted from 1951-1954. He was an outstanding artist, sculptor, and educator.

African-Americans on U.S. coins

Coins-United States | CoinLady

This year, a $100 gold coin will be minted, featuring an African-American Liberty. Liberty has been depicted over the years as a matron, a schoolgirl, seated, standing and walking. But this 2017 depiction of Liberty is a first.

Apollo 11 coins

I've been an amateur astronomer for years, even took classes at the Adler Planetarium. So I am anxious to see the Apollo 11 commemorative coins.
