  • 2018 Winter Olympic coins

    2018 Winter Olympic coins

    "Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balanced whole the qualities of body, will and mind." - Olympic Charter

    From the first Modern Olympic games conducted in 1896 in Athens, with just 241 participants, 14 nations, to the 2,873 athletes from 88 nations during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, the Olympic games have stood steadfast upon the principle of ' ...contribut(ing) to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practised without discrimination of any kind, in a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play'. The Modern Olympic games not only provide a platform for expressing friendship and solidarity among all participating nations but also provide a grand spectacle to millions who watch it through their television sets.

    The 'War to end all wars' or 'the Great War' or simply the 'World War' (as World War 2 hadn't come yet ! ) would devastate entire generations, topple empires and the world would never be the same!

  • American Liberty 225th Anniversary Silver 4-Medal Set

    American Liberty 225th Anniversary 4 medal set

    We are a land of hope and opportunity! Since the day the first European settlers, the Norsemen came in long boats; followed by the 15th century Spanish in their big ships, then the British, the French, and later the rest of Europe, Russia and Asia; America has been a land of 'hope' for people fleeing from poverty, tyrants, pogroms; a land of 'abundance' for people who wanted to call a piece of land their own; a land of 'Liberty' for those who wanted a home away from home!

And these hoards or caches as they may be called open wide the doors to the history of the period!

  • 2017 $25 American Palladium Eagle

    2017_$25_american_palladium_eagle

    Silver-white and lustrous to look at, Palladium looks like a close cousin to Platinum. Even though it’s been around some time, it’s amazing that Palladium has never been used in a U.S. coin before. Palladium coins have found favor in other countries; ‘Canadian Palladium Maple leaf’, the ‘Chinese Palladium Giant Panda’, the ‘Australian Palladium Emu’ are a few of the famous Palladium coins across the World!

    In 2010, Congress authorized the U.S. mint to issue Palladium Eagle coins and in September this year the first ever investment grade Palladium Eagles with high relief designs have been released!

  • The P Mint Mark

    P mint mark-Lincoln cent

    Mint Marks - The origin

    Many would think mint marks were invented by us. What with so many mints spread across the country since the 18th century! But that's not the case. These marks that indicate at a glance (within a 1 inch coin, no less!) which mint a coin came out of are as old as time itself!

  • 1878 7/8 Tail Feathers Morgan dollars

    1878 7/8 Morgan dollars
