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.

NumisNews – New York Bank Hoard Graded by NGC – 7/19/2018 – Numismatics with Kenny

NumisNews – New York Bank Hoard Graded by NGC – 7/19/2018 – Numismatics with Kenny

Hello everybody and welcome back to Numismatics with Kenny. Here’s my second 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 New York Bank Hoard that was graded by NGC. NGC, or the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, has just finished grading and certifying a 16,000 Morgan Silver Dollar hoard that was found in sealed US Treasury bags. Left untouched for almost 50 years, the large hoard avoided the normal bag marks. 118 of the Morgans graded MS-67!

16 canvas bags were found in a New York bank vault, each containing exactly 1,000 Morgan Dollars. Here is a breakdown of how many bags of each date and mintmark combination were found. 1878-S (one bag), the 1880-S (two bags), the 1881-S (one bag), the 1883-O (one bag), the 1884-O (one bag), the 1885 (one bag), the 1885-O (two bags), the 1886 (one bag), the 1887 (four bags), the 1888 (one bag) and the 1889 (one bag). From 1964, when the bags were left at the bank by the US Treasury, the bags were passed down from owner to owner of the bank until the current owner decided to seek assistance about the coins.

Jeff Garrett, President of Mid-American Rare Coin Galleries and former President of the American Numismatic Association (ANA), was called in to be the expert and was amazed to see such beautiful Morgans. He stated in an article for the NGC Weekly Market Report that “with each bag being opened, our small group was able to witness the reveal of a numismatic time capsule. The overall quality of the coins is amazing.” NGC graded each with a special label, noting each coin is from the New York Bank Hoard. At the time of this video production, NGC has not identified the name of the bank. Jeff Garrett had more to say on this exciting hoard. “The New York Bank hoard of U.S. Treasury silver dollars was one of the most exciting chapters of my numismatic career.

Now that the hoard has been certified and pedigreed by NGC—and protected by NGC’s secure holder—the coins can be enjoyed by countless other collectors.” These coins will be available for the public to purchase from what NGC calls “major retailers” very soon. I credit NGC’s official website and coinnews.net for the information used in this video.

Here is a video discussing the ANA Summer Seminar and the Young Numismatist auction.

Welcome back to Numismatics with Kenny. Today’s video is a special request made to my subscribers and viewers. As many of you know, the American Numismatic Association conducts their two-week Summer Seminar at the ANA headquarters and Colorado College in Colorado Springs, CO each summer. If you have not attended a seminar, I highly recommend you go as you will have the opportunity to meet a number of great numismatists from the United States and some from all over the world. Go to money.org to learn more about attending the seminar and to download the seminar’s course catalog.

I will be attending my fourth Summer Seminar this June and was recently contacted by the ANA to lead the first week’s YN (Young Numismatist) auction. In addition to the great courses, ANA library book sale, the wonderful comradery, a highlight to each week is the YN auction. Each year, the ANA offers a good number of full and partial scholarships to young numismatists to attend the seminar. The scholarships pay for the seminar courses, travel expenses, and room and board. Each week an average of 25 young numismatists join the many adult numismatists who attend the seminar.

The YN auction is the primary fund raiser to pay for these scholarships. Attendees and others who desire to promote our hobby to young collectors contribute numismatic items – US and world coins, ancient coins, tokens, currency, and other numismatic items to the auctions. The young numismatists attending the seminar collect, catalog, head up lot viewing, and run the auction. It is a great experience for all of us. The auction is held on the next to last night of each week’s seminar. All attendees are welcome to bid and as the proceeds go towards the YN scholarship program, the bidders are very generous in their bidding.

And now for my request of you. If you are in agreement that we need to have more young collectors in our great hobby, I ask you to send some numismatic items to this year’s summer seminar. Your generous gift may be tax deductible and is going to a great cause. Any donation is appreciated but if you are wondering what the normal value range of the donated item has been in the past, it normally ranges from $25.00 to well into the hundreds of dollars.

Again, any donated numismatic item is appreciated. When the auction is over, you will receive a thank you letter from the ANA. You can keep the letter for tax purposes. The ANA does not assign a value to your donated item or items. You will determine the value. To donate, simply email me and request a donation form at numismatistkenny@gmail.com or click here for a donation form– the form includes the address to send your donated item(s)and I will send you a donation form by email which includes the ANA’s mailing address.

My email address is noted below in the video’s description. I want to thank Ms. Amber Bradish, Mr. Akio Lis, and the ANA staff for selecting me to be the YN auction lead for week one. With your help, I hope we can raise a significant amount of money so many young numismatists can be awarded scholarships in the future. Thank you so much and please feel free to share this video with other numismatists who enjoy helping young collectors. Specific questions about donating, please contact me at numismatistkenny@gmail.com or the ANA directly at donate@money.org

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.”
