Strike It Rich With Pocket Change: Book Review

| CheerioCoins

One of my favorite things to do in my free time is sort rolls of coins. I love to look for W quarters, old dates, and anything special. But what I really love to look for is errors. My favorite reference book for them is a book called Strike It Rich with Pocket Change. I'm sure some of you are familiar with this book because it is one of my favorite coin collecting books. It talks about a lot of major and minor errors on modern circulating coins. It will tell you where to look on the coin and what to look for. It will give you an estimated price range on your coin in circulated condition and uncirculated condition. It ranges from cents to half dollars and includes zoomed in photos with captions. The title on the box says "Mistakes happen. Now you can cash in on them." Ken Potter and Dr. Brian Allen did a great job with this book. If you are into errors and like to roll sort, I would highly recommend this book!

1936 Cleveland Centennial Commemorative Half Dollar

| CheerioCoins

When it comes to commemoratives from 1936, there are so many different designs and that’s why I think it’s such a cool year. There were 21 U.S commemoratives minted that year and 16 of those designs were only minted in 1936. The reason there were so many commemoratives that year is because in the 1930’s the commemorative market was really hot and we’re in high demand. Of course the mint wanted to make some money so they minted the most commemoratives they have ever minted in one year.

1936 Providence, Rhode Island Commemorative

| CheerioCoins

I wanted to blog about some of the coins I got for my birthday. First of all, my brother bought me a 2018 Chinese Silver Panda which I put in my album and it looks great. This was the only coin I got gifted but I also bought a 1936 Providence, Rhode Island, Tercentenary Commemorative coin at my coin club. It was selling for $80 and I bought it for only $70, a great price! The coin was in MS 63 and is worth around $110. I got for my 1936 commemorative exhibit and I decided to do a little research on it.

New 2023 Quarters and 2022 Dollars

| CheerioCoins

I am super excited to announce that the mint released the winning designs for the 2023 women quarters just three days ago. Starting with Bessie Coleman, an African American U.S. pilot who was a big pioneer. The date 6.15.1921 on the coin is when Bessie Coleman earned her pilots license, making her the first African American women to get their pilots license. Jovita Idar, on the second design, was a Mexican American activistwho wanted Mexican Americans to be more respected and to have a better future. The design features her clothing made out of words including: "MEXICAN AMERICAN RIGHTS" and "JOURNALIST", and of course "QUARTER DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM". There is also Edith Kanaka'ole, whose hair in the design flows into the Hawaiianland. She preserved and taughtHawaiianculture. Then there's Eleanor Roosevelt fought for social justice and human rights. The coin states "UNIVERSAL DECLARATIONOF HUMAN RIGHTS" which she helped create. Human Rights are right people say everyone should have here's the list of them:https://www.un.org/en/about-us/universal-declaration-of-human-rights. Finally there's Maria Tallchief a Native American ballerina. On the design it shows her name written in Osage orthography which translates to "Two Standards".

I also bought a 1932-D Washington quarter key date in G-6 for $35, and bought the new Wilma Mankiller quarter which inspired me to write this detailed blog on the American Women Quarter Program!

Coins That Broke the Law

| CheerioCoins

While I continue to look for 1936 commems for my exhibit, I find out a lot about different coins. One coin in particular that interested me: the 1936 Robinson-Arkansas Half Dollar. The thing that interested me was that at the time the commemorative coin was being minted, Senator Joseph Robinson was living. Why did this surprise me? It is the law that no living person can be put on a U.S. coin. In 1866, Congress issued an act stating that no living person can be portrayed on American currency. Our Founding Fathers believed it was unpatriotic for living people's likenesses to be placed on money in circulation. Although he did die the year that they were minted, 1937. They are dated 1936 but were minted in 1937 (some coins are just weird like that).
