Welcome to my Numismatics with Kenny Blog! (Coin Collecting: US & World Coins)

 

I invite you to visit my numismatic eBay store – Click here

I am a young numismatist and a American Numismatic Association life member and have been collecting coins for more than nine years. Like many numismatists, numismatics has become a passion for me. It does not matter whether its purchasing coins, reading about coins, or discussing the hobby with other collectors, I enjoy it all and hope more young people become young numismatists.

My father and I are members of 5 local coin and currency clubs as well as more than a dozen national and international numismatic clubs and societies. We have made a great deal of new friends over the years and look forward to adding new friends from around the country and the world.

This blog will include recent articles and videos on coins, anything numismatic readers would like to share, and videos I have created on coins and collecting.  Additionally, I have made a number of world coins videos and collection videos of both silver and gold coins.  I also make unboxing videos of coins I purchase online or my father brings me from his many business trips. Look for my educational videos created with the help of local seasoned numismatists and videos I create while attending the ANA summer seminars.

Also, be sure to check out the daily RSS feeds (on the right side of my blog)from Coin World, Numismatic News, and the US Mint. I have recently added a number of additional Numismatic Feeds. You are welcome to bookmark this blog as the RSS feed articles change on a daily basis.

Each day, I tweet or retweet numismatic topics or articles. Some of these appear on this blog.

Whether you collect US Coins or World Coins, you will be able to find great articles and videos here on my blog and on my numismatic youtube channel – click this link to subscribe to my free channel:

2019 ANA Young Numismatist of the Year Winner Announcement – Numismatics with Kenny

2019 ANA Young Numismatist of the Year Winner Announcement – Numismatics with Kenny

I invite you to visit my Numismatics with Kenny eBay store

I just returned from my fifth American Numismatic Association (ANA) Summer Seminar. This year marked the 51st Summer Seminar offered by the ANA and it will always be a very special one for me. Earlier this year, the ANA notified me that I was nominated for this year’s 2019 Young Numismatist of the Year award. A number of wonderful people including Ken Bressett, Steve Roach, Pam Stitely, George Mavrelos, Jim McDermott, Joe Furia, and others sent in letters of reference supporting my nomination.

I have to admit I was a bit nervous during the second week’s closing ceremonies. Several of my YN friends were deserving of the award. The ANA closes each week’s ceremony with the award’s presentation. When the master of ceremonies, Mr. David Sklow, the ANA’s Dwight N. Manley Library Director, began his introduction of the winner, it took me several seconds to realize he was speaking about me. My mind literally went blank as I was overcome with emotion. In just a minute, I will show the presentation but before I do, I want to thank the ANA for this wonderful award.

The ANA has helped me grow not only as a collector but in my personal life too. I was only 13 when I first attended a summer seminar. To say I was shy, would be an understatement but thanks to all of the ANA staff, the adults attending the seminars, and my fellow young numismatists, my confidence grew when it came to my interactions with everyone, public speaking, and leadership as I was offered the opportunity to run the 2018 first week YN Summer Seminar Auction to raise money for future Young Numismatists to receive a scholarship to the Summer Seminars.

I encourage young and experienced collectors to attend at least one Summer Seminar. You will have the opportunity to meet some of the leaders in our hobby, take a course in a numismatic area you are interested taught by an expert in that area, share a week of comradery with others passionate about numismatics, purchase numismatic literature at a great discount, and pick up some great numismatic items during the Young Numismatist auction.

I encourage other Young Numismatists to apply for a Summer Seminar scholarship. The experience will be immeasurable.

If you are not a member of the ANA (adult or youth) and would like information, contact me at numismatistkenny@gmail.comm and I would be pleased to send you an application. By joining the ANA, you will be eligible for many great benefits including borrow from the largest numismatic library in the world, receive the award-winning monthly publication, The Numismatist, discounts on a number of offers, the Coin for A’s program, and much more.

In addition to this video, I have uploaded several other 2019 ANA Summer Seminar videos that I hope you enjoy.

A final thank you to all of my subscribers and viewers here on YouTube, Twitter, my blog, Facebook, and Instagram. I invite viewers who are not already a YouTube subscriber to subscribe below.

Thank you!

Kenny

NumisNews – 1894 Indian Head Cent Sleeper – Numismatics With Kenny

NumisNews – 1894 Indian Head Cent Sleeper – Numismatics With Kenny

Here’s another NumisNews video. For those who don’t know what NumisNews is, it’s a new format that I recently introduced. I pick an interesting subject that’s in a major numismatic publication and then make a video discussing and highlighting the key points.

Today’s NumisNews focuses on the 1894 Indian Head Cent Sleeper. Later date Indian Head Cents rarely are considered hard to find, and although 1894 is not hard to find, per se, it is indeed a lower mintage year worthy of note. At only a mintage of a little over 16 million, there were considerably less one cent pieces minted. The year prior, 1893, there were almost 50 million coins made. One explanation for such a short supply was the Panic of 1893. In that year, the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad and the National Cordage Company, two companies that stimulated growth of the economy, both went out of business.

The stock market was severely damaged by this and so was the rest of the American economy. An estimated 15,000 business were shuttered during the Panic. Homelessness and unemployment shot up drastically. It was not a good time for the United States economy. With all the hard times happening, it’s not hard to imagine why the date had a lower mintage. Another reason why 1894 is now being considered a sleeper is the fact that collectors did not save many of this date. Either they saved their hard-earned money for more well-known rare examples or they simply didn’t have enough money to spend on nice examples.

This coin is what collectors call a sleeper, or a coin that has a chance of going up in value in the future, in any condition. This is mainly due to mintage reasons, just like this one. Sleepers are not the key dates of a certain series, but, over time, sleeper dates could become the second tier of the series. Whatever your budget is, both stocking up on lower grade examples and breaking the bank on Red Uncirculated pieces could be smart investments for the future.

Early US Silver Coins and the John Reich Collectors Society – Numismatics with Kenny

Early US Silver Coins and the John Reich Collectors Society

This video is an overview of Early U.S. silver coins and the John Reich Collectors Society (JRCS). The JRCS is a group of collectors who study the U.S. gold and silver coins minted prior to the Liberty Seated series. We hold our annual meeting at the ANA World’s Fair of Money and also meet at the winter FUN show in Florida. All meetings include an educational presentation.

Many JRCS members collect early U.S. silver coins by die marriage. These coins were made using an obverse and a reverse die. A die marriage is the unique combination of these 2 dies. The dies were handmade, so each was slightly different. So even though each series has the same basic design, each die marriage is distinctive.

Our members include beginning collectors as well as recognized experts in this field who are happy to share their knowledge about the coins we love. In this video, a few of our members discuss each of the 5 denominations of early U.S. silver coinage: half dimes, dimes, quarters, half dollars, and dollars.

If you would like to learn more about the John Reich Collectors Society, please visit our website at http://www.jrcs.org. You can download a membership application directly from the website. Dues are $25 a year and in return, you will receive 3 issues of the John Reich Journal (JRJ), the official club publication. The Journal contains articles detailing interesting collecting stories, research papers, and censuses, to name a few. Back issues of the JRJ can be found on the Newman Numismatic Portal at www.nnp.wustl.edu.

The JRCS also supports an official weekly e-newsletter called the JR Newsletter and can be found at www.jr-newsletter.blogspot.com. It’s free to anyone and contains information on upcoming events and new discoveries. It also allows members to keep in touch on a more regular and informal basis. Please consider signing up for the JR Newsletter at jrnewsletter(at)gmail.com.

NumisNews – Solomon Islands $40 Bank Note – 7/16/2018 – Numismatics with Kenny

NumisNews – Solomon Islands $40 Bank Note – 7/16/2018 – Numismatics with Kenny

Hello everybody and welcome back to Numismatics with Kenny. Sorry for the long delay with no videos. Since I’ve been taking tests and finals and exams, I haven’t had any time to even think about this YouTube channel. But now that summer has rolled around, I’ll finally be able to produce and upload some new numismatic content!
Today, I want to roll out one of my new ideas for this channel, called NumisNews. This is where I find an interesting news article about numismatics and I share information about that subject.

The first one is about the Solomon Islands $40 Bank Note that was just released (as of July 2018). As most of you don’t know, the Solomon Islands are celebrating their 40th anniversary of gaining independence from Great Britain. To mark this special anniversary, a limited edition $40 bank note is being released in the Solomon Islands. Limited to 100,000 notes, this polymer is fifth in a series of multi-island and multilingual notes, including a $10, $20, $50 and $100 notes.

De La Rue, a British banknote printer, is producing the notes, just like they do for so many more countries. Adorned, with braille for the blind and even a turtle that glows under ultraviolet light, the Solomon Islands $40 banknote is meant to be a collector’s item. But the Central Bank Governor Denton Rarawa has stated that it will be used in commerce for the purchase of everyday goods.

I credit Coin World and Baknote News for my information and photographs used in this video. https://www.coinworld.com/news/paper-… http://www.banknotenews.com/files/599…
