I know I have not written an article in a long time. Right after finishing up my sophomore year at Seton Hall in May, I flew down to Sarasota to begin my second summer internship at NGC. Finished up last week and once again, I had a great time while increasing my numismatic knowledge. Mr. Rick Montgomery, President of NGC, and the entire staff made me feel welcomed. I hope to go back during my Christmas vacation.
During the internship, I had an opportunity to attend one week of the ANA’s Summer Seminars. It was my sixth Summer Seminar and I highly recommend all numismatists make it a point to add it to your bucket list of things to do.
While at the Summer Seminar, I purchased approximately 160 books during the ANA Library book sale. Many of those books have been listed on my eBay store. I invite you to take a look.
In regards to my eBay store, I just created a new category – So-called dollars. I have the pleasure of working with a well-known so-called dollar collector and dealer. Each month, I plan on listing up to 80 so-called dollars. The first 20 have just been listed. If you collect so-called dollars, I invite you to visit my store and follow it so you are notified when new listings go up.
Lastly, during the next two weeks before my junior year begins, I will be listing approximately 100 world and US coins, numismatic books, a lot of exonumia, and some bullion each day.
I am excited to share more than 19,000 items totaling over 21,000 coins, books, and exonumia have been sold since I opened the store three years ago. I truly appreciate all of you who have purchased items.
My latest article will be appearing in The Numismatist next month. Hope you will read it.
Thank you for visiting my numismatic coin vlog/blog. This first post is the introductory post to the site. I have updated it over the years. To view all of my latest postings, simply scroll down past this post.
Until recently, I was considered a Young Numismatist (you become an adult in the numismatic world when you reach 18). My love for collecting coins began more than 10 years ago. 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.
I am a Life Member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and a member of 5 local coin and currency clubs as well as more than fifteen national and international numismatic clubs and societies. The hobby has given me the opportunity to make a great deal of new friends and I look forward to adding new friends from around the country and the world.
In 2019, the ANA named me the Young Numismatist of the Year. I am truly grateful to the ANA not only for the honor but how they are spending a great deal of time and effort promoting the hobby, especially to kids. If you are not a member of the ANA and would like to join, send me an email and I will email you a membership form along with the club benefits: My email address
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 made 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. You are allowed to laugh at my cracking voice during my earlier videos made as a young teenager.

Here is the introductory video to my youtube numismatic channel. I would greatly appreciate it if you would visit my free numismatic youtube channel and while you are there, take a minute to subscribe.
I am also a volunteer district representative for the ANA. As I noted above, please feel free to email about any questions you have about the benefits of joining the ANA. I would be pleased to send you an application form. If you are a young numismatist, the ANA has special discounted membership rates and a lot of great activities.
I am excited to announce I will be running for one of the ANA Governor positions this summer. Now through the end of February is the nomination period. I am asking those who are familiar with me and would like to have me on the ballot, to please go to money.org/election and print out the nomination form and mail it to the address at the bottom of the form.
It has been my intention to run for a Governor position in a few years however, I have been recently contacted by several leading numismatists suggesting I run this year.
Over the past eight years, I have attended the summer seminar each year except for the pandemic years, served as the first youth volunteer District Representative, ran the YN summer auction one session, write for The Numismatist, and was selected as the 2019 Young Numismatist of the Year. Additionally, I am a member of numerous coin clubs and associations around the world, and I have been very active on social media for 10 years discussing different aspects of numismatics while doing my best to introduce coin collecting to as many as possible.
My eBay store and setting up as a dealer at shows along with my collecting passion has given me insight to both sides of the table – the seller and buyer. I believe I can represent both and share my thoughts to make our hobby even better with the ANA’s assistance. A key part of my platform is to engage the potential younger collector as well as young adults through social media. It is imperative that we grow our great hobby. We need to do a better job at introducing and attracting younger generations to numismatics.
I believe it is time I give more back this great organization. Your nomination now and your eventual vote this spring would greatly be appreciated.
My Christmas break is just about over and will be heading back to Seton Hall University to begin the Spring semester. NGC was kind enough to invite me back for my fourth internship over the holidays and I capped it off by visiting the FUN show in Orlando. During my four internships at NGC, I have gained a lot of numismatic knowledge while becoming friends with some outstanding people. I am looking forward to heading back down to Sarasota this summer and thank NGC for the opportunity.
I have spent the past week purchasing a great amount of new inventory for my eBay store. Added more than 500 listings over the past few days including US and world coins, exonumia, a little bit of currency and some collector bullion coins.
I have marked down all numismatic books 70% and US and world currency 15%.
You can use this coupon code for all other listings except bullion – BACKCOLLEGE8
I appreciate you taking the time to visit my store and making purchases. I do combine ship so please take a look at all of the categories you may have an interest. Ship both domestically and internationally.
Lastly, my next article in The Numismatist will appear in the February issue which should be mailed in the next couple of weeks.
As the holiday season begins, Numismatics with Kenny eBay store is rolling out our Black Friday sale which begins today and runs through December 4, 2022. All numismatic books are 50% off and a significant number of listings are up to 15% off.
I have added and will continue to add hundreds of Masonic Tokens and So-called dollar listings as well as many new US and world coins, medals, tokens, bullion and currency listings.
Now is a great time to add to your collection or to purchase gifts for friends and family members who collect. Check out my tokens and medal’s categories to find interesting items to gift to young collectors who are beginning to show an interest in collecting. World coins and exonumia collecting began my passion for the hobby when I was younger. There are so many subjects exonumia and world coins cover that you are likely to find items that will appeal to everyone. I personally enjoy the history behind US and world coins.
12% of my buyers are international. Be sure to purchase early so your items arrive by the holidays. I use eBay Global shipping for international buyers.
All purchases are normally shipped to my customers within 24 hours. The items are well packaged, so your items arrive safely.
I recently created a bargain category to make collecting affordable for everyone. In the coming weeks, hundreds of more items will be added to the bargain category. No matter what your collecting budget may be, I am sure you will find items of interest.
From now through September 30th, Numismatics with Kenny is having a 15% off sale on all books. No coupon needed.
While you are visiting the store, please click on your favorite collecting categories to view all of my world and US coin, exonumia, and currency listings.
I added over $25,000 in new listings this past week. Be sure to take advantage of the listings that offer a savings coupon (you will see the coupon noted on the items page).
The store now has over 19,000 sales totaling approximately 23,000 items in the past three years. I am proud to have a 100% rating on eBay. I sincerely thank all of my past customers for their continued support.
If you do not follow my store, please do so. You will be notified when I add new listings so you can be the first to take a look at the item.
I have been a long time reader of the E-Sylum and recommend it to all numismatists. It is a free weekly newsletter published by the Numismatic Bibliomania Society (highly recommend you join the society too but it is not required to receive the free newsletter).
Begun in 1998, the newsletter goes out by email every Sunday night to over 6,000 numismatic bibliophiles, researchers, and just plain collectors around the world. Topics are all over the numismatic map, and most people find something of interest each week. Coins, tokens, medals and paper money of all time periods are discussed as well as news on a wide spectrum of numismatics and numismatic personalities. We’d love to have you on board.
WHAT’S WITH THE FUNNY NAME? Well, our organization is the Numismatic Bibliomania Society, a group for people who love coin books and are crazy for any and all information about numismatics. Our print journal is The Asylum, so our electronic publication naturally became The E-Sylum. While The E-Sylum is free to all, only paid members of NBS receive The Asylum.
Sadly, my four week internship ended. The time I spent with the great people at NGC was a highlight of my young numismatic career. It was a wonderful experience and I cannot thank everyone enough. Mr. Mark, Mr. Rick, Ms. Pam, Mr. Scott, Keith, Ben and others were so kind with their time and knowledge sharing.
Thank you so much!
It has been a very busy week since I flew back from Sarasota. I have listed over 400 numismatic listings so far this week with the best 200 listings going up today and tomorrow. US & World coins, currency, and #exonumia. All numismatic books and several hundred coins are on sale. I invite you to look. My remaining numismatic books are up to 60% off.

I just completed my first week of a month internship at @NGCcoin. The education I am receiving is amazing and have loved every minute of it. I thank Mr. Mark Salzberg for offering the internship and also thank Rick, Scott, Ben and everyone for being so kind with their time and knowledge.
The week went by so quickly. I cannot wait to start the new week tomorrow. As a young numismatist who has a passion for our hobby, this is truly a wonderful experience and I am very grateful to NGC!
