I don't know how to add links but on the coin world website there is article about gold coins found in a bay that belongs to Israel. There were just shy of 2,000 coins!

Tokens | Mr. Wheatie

Does anyone know if there is any value in this piece? I'm not sure if it would be considered a medal or a token.......If I had to say I would guess that its a token since it has a trade value of $1.00 at the 1974 World's Fair. I just don't know zilch about this sort of thing. My Dad gave it to me in a small box full of world coins and a few semi-old American coins.

Australian Opal Coins

Coins | Mr. Wheatie

How many folks collect the Australian Opal Coins or any other special series from the Perth Mint? I personally enjoy the opal coins very much. They are beautifully crafted and seeing the opal inlays in the coin is rather intriguing.

2012 uncirculated mint set

Coins-United States | Mr. Wheatie

The other day I finally got up the courage to spend the money on a 2012 uncirculated mint set. It's a beauty...... But the price just about scared Mr. grant and Mr. Jackson back into my wallet! I was already braced for the expense, but I still found it a bit pricey. Does anyone know why that year was soooo expensive?

coin slabb collectors

Coins | Mr. Wheatie

I have to ask a question to those who collect coins which are slabbed. I understand the role of the third party coin graders and authenticators. But what I don't understand is why it matters if it is a first day issue or if it has any special label at all! For example, the 50th anniversary Gold JFK's. The first day issue slabbed coins wether they be from Chicago or D.C. or Denver or wherever, sell for a premium over all the other slabbed coins or even the ones left in the original government packaging. WHY? I understand that a slabbed coin will bring a premium over a raw coin. But why should a label make a coin any more valuable than the same coin with the same grade with different label? Are they not the essentially the same coin? I guess what it all boils down to in the end for me is this: Is one purchasing the coin inside the slab or is one simply purchasing the slab? Give me some feedback. I am curious about this

ANA inter web team

| Mr. Wheatie

How come my copper collection does not receive the copper badge? Am I missing something?

| Mr. Wheatie

I purchased $150.00 of pennies from the bank. Of all those pennies I found less than 25 wheaties, of all those and other copper coins pulled out, (includes all Canadian, Zinc Lincoln cents and any other foreign coins discovered) I returned $120.49.

its worth about $1.00 maybe $1.50 but I think finding a 124 year old indian penny is the coolest thing. 1891. found it in a bank roll.
