Coins | Alexyo?

      I am excited about the American Numismatic Association's World's Fair of Money coming to Denver, CO on August 1! I plan on going on the fifth, but I can probably go any day.0 I just got a Sacagawea dollar for completing the first activity in the Dollar Project. I have already completed the entire thing. For my Year/Coin project, I chose a 1977 (my dad was born that year) quarter (I like quarters). I rubbed many coins to practice, so I forget which I sent in, but it might have been an Eisenhower dollar. For my Commemorative Coin project, I designed a Nintendo Switch coin. I think that they should have included a space for the obverse AND reverse, so you'll have more room for creating it. I found out that a silver walking Liberty dollar I got for Christmas is silver bullion worth $70! I looked closely at a 1912 liberty head nickel in a ANACS holder, and I saw it was A 1912 D, WORTH 38 BUCKS. By writing this blog, I am trying to earn the first coin in the EAC coin project (an article with 400+ words). Please comment on what you think about the World's Fair of Money coming to Denver. I have got Elizabeth II, George V and VI, Edward VII, Victoria, William IV, George IV and III coins. I want to get one of any coin from the monarch previous to the oldest one I've got (Georges II, I, Will and Mary, etc.). I think that the new design of the pound is new and cool, but I have the last "Round Pound", which I got from visiting the Money Museum. I can only imagine what will be at their new World War I exhibit coming soon. I recently saw an article about copper 1943 pennies, and almost everyone who commented said something about it never being found in anybody's spare change. "I've been searching for one all my life." "This article makes it seem as though you'll just find one on the ground." Now that summer's coming up, the Coins for A's program will start. Let me know if you are as excited about it as me! My Dad and I have some coins for sale on the EBay store Modern to Medieval Coins, and his username is private_baldrick. You should check it out!  That's all for this blog. Until next time: gamrnrd1015@gmail.com.

Very enthusiastic. Thanks for the joyful and fun blog. Copper 1943 pennies? Nah, if you find one, rub it really hard and get off whatever someone put onto them off. I have heard about 'em, but I have heard about pretend ones more. Enjoyed your blog.

Keep up your great interest in coins! I've been to Denver twice and I really enjoyed both times. I also went to the ANA HQ in Colorado Springs both times. I was happy to go, see the wonderful exhibits, tour the library, & meet some of the people in person! There's a lot of sightseeing in the area too. There's the Denver Mint & the Capitol building.
