    Bank Notes-An Inter-Disciplinary Study 8/15/1989

    Bank Notes-An Inter-Disciplinary Study

    "Legal-tender playing cards" and "cartographic paper money" may sound like incongruous titles for collecting subjects. However, the link between various collectors' items not only is possible and practical, but also can become quite fascinating. Bank notes, almost from their inception, have been used to depict a wide variety of themes that have often formed a collecting subject in their own right. Coins on bank notes and maps on bank notes, with their comparison to the original item, are the subject matter of this lecture. Packs of playing cards bear depictions of coins and bank notes, and a 52-card pack has actually served as a comprehensive atlas of the counties of England and Wales. Yasha's lecture tries to expand the interest of the collector who often prefers to limit himself to the boundaries of his own favorite subject. Speaker(s): Yasha Beresiner.

Not only has the terminal date for the coinage been pushed back to 1789-90, but Mathias Ogden's role over the whole period has been re-examined. Learn about some important research in a fascinating area of early American coinage. Lecture with diagrams. Speaker(s): Michael Hodder.

    Creation of the 1989 Pittsburgh Medal 8/15/1989

    Creation of the 1989 Pittsburgh Medal

    The Pittsburgh convention medal was designed by John Mercanti, assistant chief engraver of the U.S. Mint, as a token of appreciation and support for the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists. In designing the medal, Mr. Mercanti wanted to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Washington's ?rst presidential inauguration. The medal's obverse depicts George Washington as a young surveyor atop Mt. Washington looking down on a wooded site where the three rivers converge. Behind the woods is Washington's vision of what was to develop on that site, Pittsburgh's present-day skyline. Don Carlucci describes how this beautiful medal came to be. Speaker(s): Don Carlucci.

    Conder is Not a Bird: 18th Century British Tokens 8/15/1989

    Conder is Not a Bird: 18th Century British Tokens

    The regal coinage output of Great Britain was at best very spotty during the latter half of the 18th century. Small change, the backbone of the working man's economy, was nearly nonexistent. To alleviate this shortage, and to pay their laborers, many merchants produced halfpenny and farthing tokens. As soon as collectors of the day showed an interest in these pieces, unscrupulous merchants and counterfeiters manufactured their own fabrications, thus destroying the economic integrity of the tokens. Frank Van Valen discusses connections between Conder tokens and our own Hard Times tokens. He traces the evolution of these tokens from their beginnings in Wales in 1787, and relates them to our own colonial coins. He answers the rather intriguing question of how Conder tokens got their name. His slide and lecture presentation feature rare and interesting items, many in Proof condition, and show such famous items as the "slave" token, Lady Godiva, and the two-headed cow! Speaker(s): Frank Van Valen.

    Washington Before Boston Medal 8/15/1989

    Washington Before Boston Medal

A silver specimen, one of only four known, was presented to the General by the French government and subsequently was owned by Daniel Webster. There have been five distinct restrikes of the medal! Learn the fascinating history of this significant medal from one of its foremost experts. Speaker(s): Dick Buckley.

    Numismatics and Television

    Coin collecting is no longer a collector-dominated market. The entry of major ?nancial investors has changed the face of numismatics forever.

He has produced television programming about coins for the Financial News Network and The Learning Channel. Lisot discusses how TV has been used and abused in its presentation of numismatics.
