Among our new subscribers this week are Catherine Eagleton of the British Museum, and Tom Dodd. Welcome aboard! We now have 1,324 subscribers.

This week we open with word of a long-awaited update to an important numismatic reference work, and some results from David Sklow's recent numismatic literature sale.

Other topics include a hoard of early dollars and twenty-cent pieces, coin cabinets, an acquisition by Princeton University, and changes in banknotes issued by the U.S. and Canada.

You've heard of Silver Certificates and Gold Certificates, right? How about a "Gold & Silver Certificate"? Two - two precious metals in one!

To learn about the Obama quarters, beating archaeologists, a marijuana-based monetary system, and medals of rich, Corinthian Bronze, read on.
