A beautiful model

One of the most popular models for a US coin can be seen at the US Mint in Philadelphia. I made a special trip to see this model. Collectors are familiar with the coins to this day.

Happy birthday to the US Mint!

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Today is the 225th birthday of the United States Mint. Now is the time for all collectors, casual and serious, to think about the many issues that have come out of the Mint. Many early coins are scarce, expensive, and outof reach for the average collector. That does not mean these coins cannot be appreciated. Learn more about them. Study photos, guide books, and auction catalogs. Knowledge makes you a better collector.

Mint missed an anniversary

Coins | CoinLady

2017 marks the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Mint. With all the restrikes of old designs, it's too bad the Mint didn't think of re-creating the coins of 1792. The quaint designs would look great, struck using modern technology. A set could have included a silver center cent, a Birch cent, a half disme, disme and the quarter. A replica of the Libertas Americana medal would be a nice addition. A booklet outlining the history of these coins would be enclosed, perhaps including latest auction prices. The holder for the set could resemble an antique board of some sort.
