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.

Three Dollar Gold Piece – 500th Subscriber Video – Numismatics with Kenny

Visit my youtube channel to see all of my numismatic videos – Click here

Thank you to all of my first 500 subscribers. To celebrate, here is a video about the Three Dollar Gold Piece.

This video focuses on the Three Dollar Gold Piece. The coin was designed by James B. Longacre, who also designed the Indian Head Cent and numerous other coins.

This series is especially rare – the highest mintage was in 1854, with only 138,618 coins struck. The lowest mintage was in 1881, with 500 coins struck. This is not including the unique 1870-S, which is part of the Bass Foundation Collection and can be seen in my video “Quarter Eagles and $3 Gold Pieces – Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection at the ANA Money Museum”. Needless to say, every date and mintmark combination in this series is classified as scarce or above.

The 1870-S Three Dollar Gold Piece is unique – there are no other ones in any collection. The coin was sold in a B&R auction in October of 1982 and sold for $687,500 in EF-40. Today, the Red Book estimates the price of the coin, in EF, to be about $6,000,000.

The denomination was minted from 1854 to 1889. They were struck at Philadelphia, San Francisco, Dahlonega, and New Orleans.

The coin was authorized for striking by the Act of February 21, 1853.

Here is a quote from the straight from the Red Book –
“Today, some numismatists theorize that the $3 denomination
Would have been useful for purchasing postage stamps of the day (with their face value of 3 cents) or for acquiring 100 silver three-cent pieces (“trimes”), which were also in circulation at the time.”
