  1. October 16, 2019 - McKinley Birthplace Memorial gold dollar - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McKinley_Birthplace_Memorial_gold_dollar These coins were struck in smallish quantities over two years to help finance the National McKinley Birthplace Memorial in Niles, Ohio. They are about as valuable as you'd expect a 100-year old gold commemorative dollar to be, but not much more so than that.
  2. That's a great question! There are some folks here who have made coins before. Let's see if they chime in.
  3. Four answers! 1) The 1978 is copper whereas the other two are copper-clad zinc. 2) As such, they will wear differently and react differently to the many chemicals it comes into contact with over its lifetime. 3) The way they were struck by the Mint has probably evolved. 4) The dies they were struck with have different amounts of wear.
  4. Me, too. Started collecting a few but that was back when I was collecting a bunch of different things with no discipline.
  5. Look up your coin on this site: http://www.coppercoins.com/advsearch.php It's an excellent site and you should be able to see what you have.
  6. Finally catching up with my favorite thread and WOW! Someone at Wikipedia sure loves their commemorative coins! February 13, 2019 - Hawaii Sesquicentennial Half Dollar - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaii_Sesquicentennial_half_dollar A famous commemorative coin. Only 10,000 were minted and few exist in high grades. Moreover, only 50 proofs were minted. The last one sold by Heritage was in 2004 for $25,000. Imagine what they'd go for today!

  7. Wow. Those are stunning in their own ways. Have you shared many mor recent than 1957 here?
  8. Unbelievable. How often do you come across medals with their original packaging?
  9. It looks like he could step right out of the medal. Beautiful.
  10. I really like it , too!
  11. Normally, I'd browse but I'm taking a month without pay (paternity leave in America...) so I'm not going to tempt myself by looking!
  12. Ha! After all my years of reading every article I see about pocket rarities, I had no idea about the 1982 D bronzes!
  13. Hi Lynn, Sorry for your loss and welcome to the forum. We have a bunch of collectors of British coins here who might be able to help.
  14. I bet it's two coins somehow mated together, like for a magician's trick.
  15. Hi! Welcome to Coinpeople! Sorry for the delay in response. Obviously, it's hard to make a conclusive judgement without knowing the year. I can't really tell from the photo. It can't be worth more than a handful of dollars. That's not bad though!
  16. Interesting. Is there a reason Australia celebrated the Year of the Horse?
  17. I like that. I wonder if Art has seen it.
