Greg Weinman, U.S. Mint Senior Counsel, Speaks on 1933 Double Eagle

This week at the PAN (Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists) convention Greg Weinman, U.S. Mint Senior Counsel, spoke on the 1933 double eagle and the extensive litigation surrounding this controversial coin. The 1933 double eagle has inspired spirited (and endless) debate within the numismatic community, but heretofore the Mint has not freely commented on the legal proceedings.  Weinman summarizes the long record of litigation and presents the Mint’s point of view on the subject. Weinman also announced a related exhibit at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia, to be opened coincident with the ANA World’s Fair of Money in August.  Coin Television, operated by David Lisot, videotaped Weinman’s presentation under sponsorship of the Newman Portal. Thanks to Tom Uram, PAN president, for facilitating this recording.
