     In February two new guidebooks are coming out: Red Book Official Guide Book of Continental Currency and Coins 288pp. $23
Red Book Official Guide Book of Gold Eagle Coins 448pp. $30 Both by Q. David Bowers. In January and February the ANA free
learning Academy
will continue with programs on euros, elongated coins, siege money, masonic pennies, Parthia, making ancient coins
half cents, Lincoln, Black death coinage and more https://info.money.org/elearning  ANA has also created
The Grading Game for those
that want a better understanding or practice grading US coins: money.org/games/grading-game   ANA
podcasts continue at Two Bits with
a Dawn of Coinage episode
. money.org/podcast The theme for this years Coin Week April 18-24 is Money, Big and Bold celebrating
the 50th anniversary of the Eisenhower dollar and the 100th anniversary of the change from the Morgan dollar to the Peace dollar. With luck
we will be at the museum again.
The Newman Numismatic Portal is also offering its second free symposium March 19-21 from 7AM
to 4 PM at https://nnpsymposium.org/register    Collecting Colonials, Collecting Washington Medals, and US Classic Gold 1834-1839 look
especially interesting. Also research on the little square Japanese coins and countermarked Spanish 8 reals by Britain. Effective January 1,
2021, the Government of
Canada will remove legal tender status from some older bank notes that are no longer produced: the $1,
$2, $25, $500 and $1,000 notes.
Essentially, This means that Canadians will no longer be able to use them in cash transactions. The notes
are too easy to counterfeit. These bank notes will not lose their face value, since the Bank of Canada will continue to honor them. People
wishing to redeem their notes can do so at financial institutions or by sending them to the Bank of Canada.
A nice hour long video on coin
What I Learned from 3000 Coin and Medal Artists lecture by Richard Wayne "Dick" Johnson (2002) is available at  https://nnp.
wustl.edu/library/book/557085 discussing the engravers and technology of coin making.
Fake Hobo nickels are flooding the market
from China.
I will add that Spain is producing fake medieval British, French and other coins designed to deceive as well. One more reason
to have coin shows with reputable dealers return. On December 17
H.R. 6192 passed by unanimous consent authorizing production of
2021 Morgan and Peace dollars in not less than .900 fine silver
, with any balance of the alloy in copper. Options would include issues
struck at the Denver, Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints. Privy marks could be added to specific Morgan dollar issues to pay homage to
the silver dollar output at the former Carson City Mint in Nevada and New Orleans Mint in Louisiana. Also included is options for proof and
uncirculated releases, with the possibility for special sets to include coins of different finishes from multiple mints. While the provisions of
the enabling legislation authorize the production and release of silver dollars beginning in 2021, the law does not state a closing date. Mark
Amodei helped with this over the last two years at my and Rusty King’s urging.
1964 Kennedy on clad quarter planchet:
Smithsonian displays Ulysses S. Grant Congressional medal for victory at Vicksburg in a presentation box of ebony and gold with
commemorative medal of well over a pound of gold. On the obverse is a bust of Ulysses S. Grant to left with legend, "Major General Ulysses S.
Grant / Joint Resolution of Congress / December 17. 1863" Thirteen stars and a wreath surround the design. A contemporaneous bronze medal
show the reverse and dimension of 105 mm, 10 mm thick, 502 grams. Reverse has Commerce over maps of Vicksburg and Chattanooga and
pile of armaments.
    The National Coin Show at Phoenix in March that I was planning to attend got cancelled along with most other coins shows. I miss being
able to see dealers I buy from, see rare coins and interesting displays, search for that hard to find ancient coin. I remember the World’s Fair of
Money at Anaheim in 2016 where several dealers had junk boxes, and I got for $12 each coins of Cleopatra, Parthian kings, several huge
Alexandrian drachms, and a complete set of Canadian 1 ounce silver Star Trek Coins for less than they cost at the Canadian Mint. The copper
drachm of
Alexandria was an attempt of a copper rich nation to substitute a copper coin for a silver coin, which created a huge copper coin.
Catherine the Great of Russia’s huge 5 kopeck coins, our own large cents, and the famous plate money of Sweden are examples. These 33mm
and above copper coins of 24 grams or so created a large canvas full of Egyptian themes. This coin depicts the annual rise of the Nile with the
personified Nile reclining above a crocodile and holding a cornucopia from which emerges a child as a personified cubit with growing grain
behind the Nile. The inscription TPICKA  Iz  Tris ka(i deka) or a 3 and 10 (13) of 16 cubits rise of the Nile on the nilometer in upper Egypt
signaled a good year of irrigation, which is why the cubit child is holding a wreath. Like many ancient coins the image of the god is from a
famous statue. This Nile statue was taken from Alexandria to Rome in ancient times. Several copies were made, the most famous is in the
Vatican. Note the crocodiles with cubits, the original had all 16 cubits.There is a cornucopia behind the sphinx. These statues served as
monuments in the temples of Isis as well as garden decorations or both like statues of St. Francis or the Blessed Virgin in Catholic gardens.
That’s why there are so many of them. Anaheim was a great show allowing me to feed my two great passions of ancient coins and Original
Series Star Trek.
A striking medal by Marika Somogyi called Vanitas made in 1986 for the Society of Medalists. It is a wonderful image of the chief sin of
Vanity/Pride/Envy as taught by the Christian Church of Adam and Eve and the Devil. Vanity is seen as the cause of greed, hate, and
oppression, and since it leads people to steal, desire, and harm others for selfish ends. The Devil envies us our ability to repent our sins and to
have and requite God’s love. A bejeweled naked woman admires her beauty and wealth while the Devil peers at her with lust promising the
skull of death, a book of false knowledge, and a compass to measure only the material world.

The Trump presidential medal with price tripled at 1.5 inches for $20 and quadrupled at 3 inch at $160 is back ordered. The 2020 SC
Innovation dollar will come out Jan. 19 2021.
The last quarter of the America the Beautiful series comes out Feb 8, the Tuskegee
Airmen. I have found a six quarter case to put the S sets together then.   On 2-1 the silver presidential series continues and 2-8 the armed
services is still deciding on design (choices below) and the Native American $1 design to honor Indians in the armed services chose a stupid
feather design over some nice ones (see below). The feathers are from 2019 NA $1 proposed design with stars instead of planets. Dumb
then Dumb now. They had a lot of nice designs to choose from.
2019 NA feather design that was rejected. It’s worse on a military coin as
giving a white feather is accusing someone of cowardice. It is extra stupid this time.
Dues are Due, $20 January 1
DUES are Due $20
January 1

The Washington crossing the Delaware quarter that will be the regular design from now on. Three favorite Air Force designs for the silver medal:
Let us hope that being at the Silver Legacy John Ward’s first show in a long time in Reno will take off in February 19-21.
So far they will allow 50 people at a time in the show room. Bill Green of NorCal Shows is also hoping to restart in May:

May 21 & 22; Domain Hotel, Sunnyvale, CA

June 25 & 26: Clarion Hotel, Concord, CA

July 16 & 17: Ramada Inn, Reno, NV

November 12 & 13: Domain Hotel, Sunnyvale, CA

Britain’s new coin commemorating HG Wells and Australia’s tooth fairy coin. For a short time the mint will produce the old designs for
2021 silver and gold eagles. It is likely to be low mintage and nice to have with the new eagle designs. Both designs on-line.
