1000+ US & World Numismatic Books for Sale

I recently purchased a collection of more than 1200 United States and World numismatic books covering a wide range of numismatic topics. Most books are in English but there are a number of books written in other languages.

I am in the process of listing the books on my eBay store. I anticipate it will take me two to three weeks to get all of the books listed. Here is a link that will take you directly to the numismatic book section of my numismatic eBay store:

https://www.ebay.com/str/numismaticswithkenny/Numismatic-Books-Literature/_i.html?_storecat=29010782014

I will write another post when I have finished adding all the listings but welcome you to view the listings I have up already. If you do not want to wait and desire a particular title, email me at numismatistkenny@gmail.com. I will let you know if I have that particular title(s) and what the cost will be.

All international sales will go through eBay’s International Shipping Program. eBay is responsible for determining fees/custom charges. I have no control over those costs.

United States buyers will find the shipping cost noted in the eBay listing. I do combine ship to keep shipping costs as low as possible. Additionally, many of the books have collector value in addition to their great information. I am pricing the books below what others are selling them for as the books were sold to me at a reasonable cost.

Thank you for reading and visiting my eBay store. After you have looked through the numismatic book listings, I invite you to view the more than 1500 coins and sets I have for sale.

Mexican Voices in Metal and Paper

This course examines the general perspective of coins, some medals, and paper money that compose Mexican Numismatics, covering the period from 1492 to 1925. The highlights of this topic are the coinage of  Charles and Johanna (1536 – 1571), cobs (1572 – 1733), and klippes (1733 – 1734), on the oddly shaped coinage. We will glance at the Pillar series (1732 – 1771), busts (1772 – 1810), and War of Independence (1810 – 1822) reviewing the issues made by the Emergency Mints outside of Mexico City. Once Mexico gained its independence from Spain we will touch on Iturbide’s coinage and some of the 14 Republican Mints (1822 – 1905). During the French Invasion, coins on behalf of Maximilian were made as the Emperor of Mexico (1863 – 1867), followed by the Republican issues (1867 – 1905). The establishment of the banking system appeared in 1864 and with that the first issues of paper money walked on the streets of Mexico City, extending to the rest of the Republic (1864 – 1915). In 1905 a Monetary Reform occurred and the coin design changed some. By 1913 the first issues of the Mexican Revolución appeared in coins and paper money, ending in 1917 altogether. We will stop this meteoric review with the establishment of the Banco de México, the equivalent of the Federal Reserve, in 1925. Instructor: Ricardo de Leon Tallavas, author and Mexican coinage expert When: July 9, 2020 | 1:00-3:00 PM MDT

When the Die is Wrong: Wrong Die Varieties That Can be Found and Collected

Some of these coins can carry a price tag worth far more than a normal coin. All attendees will have the opportunity to receive a PDF file of the coins that we talk about. Instructor: John H. Miller Jr., variety expert for more than 20 years

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
