The Cousins War – Pennies, Pounds, and Pesos Coin History – Numismatics with Kenny

I stopped by Pennies, Pounds, and Pesos, a local coin store in Media, Pennsylvania, today. I had my camera with me and I asked if Mr. George Mavrelos would like to make a video for my channel. Being the great guy he is, he said sure. Here he is talking about the Cousins War and its connection to numismatics. Also, stay tuned to take a peek at his new inventory. Hope you enjoy!

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.

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.”

Dealing with Numismatics in Your Estate

April 26, 2016 Wilmington Coin Club Presentation (Wilmington, DE) – Mr. Jim McDermott – “Dealing with Numismatics in Your Estate”

Jim shared a very comprehensive presentation reviewing many of the steps all numismatists should take during their estate planning.

We have all heard the horror stories about collectors who failed to take the steps Jim outlines only to have their collections sold for a fraction of what it is worth upon their passing.

Both the Wilmington Coin Club and myself give permission to coin clubs across the country to share this video with its members as we believe all coin collectors will find the information informative and extremely helpful.

A Numismatic Marriage

Here is a video I recorded last night. It is from our monthly Wilmington Coin Club meeting. Each month we have a presentation. Garrett is a fellow young numismatist and always gives a great presentation. I highly recommend that you watch it.

The topic is – A Numismatic Marriage- Capped Bust Images on Paper Money – I know you will enjoy it.

Garrett has won several ANA essay awards and gave this presentation up at the ANA show in Chicago.
