Lianna Spurrier Creates “Odd Denominations” Video

Fourth in a series of videos aimed at young numismatists, Lianna Spurrier’s latest installment discusses odd denominations in the U.S. series, including two-cent, three-cent, and twenty-cent pieces. Spurrier examines the origin of each issue and explores its use in commerce. The themes explored represent a microcosm of 19th century U.S. economics, touching on the financial balance between gold and silver, Washington politics, and the impact of the Civil War on U.S. coinage. Lianna’s work is graphically rich, authoritatively written, and will appeal to numismatists young and old alike.
