    "Illegal to Own" Coins 8/28/2020

    "Illegal to Own" Coins

    The U.S. Government has declared that certain coins are illegal to own, most famously the 1933 Double Eagle, but potentially many others as well.

    Walking Liberty Half Dollar Proofs, the 20th Century's Most Underappreciated and Undervalued Series 8/28/2020

    Walking Liberty Half Dollar Proofs, the 20th Century's Most Underappreciated and Undervalued Series

    This presentation will discuss the origin of Adolf Weinman's famous (to this day) obverse, and note the annual mintage of Walking Liberty Proofs, some of the lowest in all of the 20th Century. In 1936, a mere 3,901 pieces were struck. The entire seven-year production was just 74,400, yet high-grade Walker proofs are relatively affordable. Major varieties are not even recognized by PCGS, or in the Cherry Pickers Guide, 6th Edition, Vol 1. The 1941 "No-AW" is a prime example. Confusion reigns! We'll examine each year's production with photos of the coins/variety and what to look for when considering a purchase. Presenting: Will Cadence, numismatist since age 6.

    The Other Continental Dollar: Dickeson's Continental Currency Commemoratives 8/28/2020

    The Other Continental Dollar: Dickeson's Continental Currency Commemoratives

    Numismatic common knowledge historically has attributed Dickeson's Continental Currency so-called dollar to the 1876 U.S. Centennial Exposition. Research facilitated by the Newman Numismatic Portal allowed William Hyder and Jeff Shevlin to place its creation in the period between 1861 and 1862 as one of four medals likely engraved and struck by Robert Lovett, Jr. for Dickeson in support of the Union financing for the Civil War. They trace the probable and known history of the dies in support of their conclusions. Presenting: Bill Hyder, numismatist for over 50 years. This presentation was part of the 2020 Newman Numismatic Portal Sympsosium, held virtually, August 28-30, 2020.

    How to Determine the Value of a Rare Coin 8/28/2020

    How to Determine the Value of a Rare Coin

    Whether buying, selling, or researching, determining a coin's value is a critical part of numismatics, and probably the most difficult part. The simplest way to determine the value of a coin is to research historical auction data to see what a similar coin sold for at a recent auction. However, the price of coins go up and down frequently, and determining the true market value of a coin can be a lot more complicated. In this presentation, Grant Powell (founder of numiis.com) will teach you everything you need to know to determine the actual value of your numismatic items. Learn what patterns determine a coin's value, and how AI and Big Data are changing the way we determine coin values.

    Almost as Rare as an 1804 Dollar: The Rare First Printing of The Fantastic 1804 Dollar 8/30/2020

    Almost as Rare as an 1804 Dollar: The Rare First Printing of The Fantastic 1804 Dollar

    In August 1962, at the Detroit ANA convention, the King of Siam set was first revealed to the public. This discovery led researchers to the origin of the 1804 dollar, which at that time remained a matter of longstanding speculation. The King of Siam set demonstrated that these coins were first struck in the 1830s as diplomatic gifts. Separately, Eric P. Newman and Ken Bressett had been working on The Fantastic 1804 Dollar and intended to release copies of the book at the same ANA convention. When David Spink and James Risk announced the startling discovery of the King of Siam set, Ken Bressett immediately dispatched a "stop the presses" call to Whitman Publishing. The book was quickly revised, but a small number of the first printing survived, and these today are avidly collected by numismatic bibliophiles. Presenting: Joel J. Orosz and Len Augsburger. This presentation was part of the 2020 Newman Numismatic Portal Sympsosium, held virtually, August 28-30, 2020.
