Not the Other Coin: New Reno coin club Medal

  Our new medal celebrates the 50th anniversary of Eva Adams Director of the US Mint 1961-1969 and the moon landing 1969 with an engine developed
and tested in Palomino Valley, NV. Eva Adams was a member of the Reno Coin Club until her death in 1991. She gave autographed dollars bills to the
young members of the club. She was born in Wonder, Nevada on September 10, 1908. Her father worked for mining magnate George Wingfield, and set
up hotels, bars,  and commissaries in Wingfield's mining camps. The family had to move from camp to camp for  years before Adams' mother insisted
the family settle down in Reno. Eva Adams graduated from Reno High School at age 14. She then attended the University of Nevada, Reno. After college,
Adams moved to Las Vegas to become a teacher at Las Vegas High School. She went back east to earn an MA in English and a law degree. She returned
to Nevada in 1940 to briefly join the English department of UNR. Shortly thereafter, Senator Pat McCarran invited her to move to Washington to become
his administrative assistant. She worked for Senator McCarran until his death in 1954, Senator Ernest S. Brown, and then Senator Alan Bible. In 1961,
President of the United States John F. Kennedy named Adams Director of the US Mint, and Adams subsequently held that office from October 1961 until
August 1969. The end of silver coinage caused a coin shortage as people hoarded silver coins. She requested the coin press at the Nevada State Museum
be sent to Denver to help make coins. The coin press then had a history of minting coins for Carson City, San Francisco, and Denver. We are proud to
have her on our new medal. The Reno arch is to the right.
 We are also celebrating the landing on the moon in 1969 and Nevada’s involvement. From 1962 to 1970, Rocketdyne operated a vast facility on nearly
200 square miles of land mostly east of Pyramid Highway between Sparks and Pyramid Lake. Hidden from public view and under tight security,
engineers erected massive apparatus to test engines and thrusters that would be used on Gemini and Apollo spacecraft, the lunar module and the space
shuttle. The rocket that lifted Buzz Aldrin from the moon came from the testing facility at Palomino Valley. The reverse is based on the Eagle has
landed design found on the Susan B. Anthony and Eisenhower dollar with the dates of the moon landing above. Medals will sell for $65 for silver, $15 for
brass and copper.

Numismatically yours, David Elliott

Numismatic Potpourri

 Well, I was right about the design for the moon coin out in January. No pricing yet. There will be a $5 gold coin, a standard size $1 silver coin, a half
dollar clad coin, and a five ounce $1 silver proof coin. In a manufacturing first for the Mint, the five ounce silver proof coin will be curved, as will the
other coins in the program with a concave footprint and convex helmet Nearly 1,000 certified items from the collection of astronaut Neil Armstrong  
were sold by Heritage Auctions. Armstrong carried this Apollo 11 Gilt Fliteline Medal on the Apollo 11 lunar module. It realized $275,000. Favored design
for 2019 Native American dollar has feathers and a planets with a lot of cool designs with spaceship rejected. Does not appear to be a final decision yet.
Evidently someone told the mint there are 500 tribes, and they have let bureaucrats at National Museum of the American Indian in DC and NY come up
with themes celebrating government except for Eastman :2020 Anti-discrimination Act of 1945, 2021 American Indians in the U.S. military service, 2022
Ely Samuel Parker, 2023 Charles Alexander Eastman. 2024 The Indian Citizenship Act of 1924. Hope there will be some nice designs anyway.


























The  Robert Rodriguez is torturing his 1792 disme in the cyclotron in Chicago. He has some new treasures; in particular a pattern 1792 George
Washington half dollar. Peter Getz struck these trial pieces in 1792 in silver and copper presumably in hopes of getting a job or contract from the US
mint. Nice portrait of George Washington, who did not want to be king or have his portrait on US coins. Just 22 examples of all variants of the silver
coins. The US Mint will be selling currency
for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, starting now on their website. The US Mint also has their presidential coins on silver eagle planchettes for sale
for $40 or $45 with an official engraving from BEP. Terrelle Robert Talbot requested various bank tellers exchange rolled $2 coins for banknotes. The
rolls of coins looked authentic with a real toonie on either end, but unbeknownst to the tellers, all the other “coins” inside the roll were actually metal
washers. 17 banks in British Columbia were defrauded of more than $30,000. They decided on 2020 Coast Guard design on 2.5 ounce silver coins and
almost have the design for Air Force. The jets will be on the obverse with memorial and honor guard or eagle on the reverse. All the services will get
medals.















The rarest and most famous of all U.S. currency notes, the legendary 1890 $1,000 Treasury Note, known as the "Grand Watermelon note," due to the
design of the large zeroes on the reversed side of the bill, resembling watermelons, became the single most valuable piece of currency when it sold for
$3,290,000. The portrait of General George Meade on the $1000 Note was engraved by renowned artist and line engraver Charles Burt





























The US Mint at their annual meeting said a great many programs will be directed at children and youth next year, will be more active in legislation
concerning coinage and plans to have joint products with the Canadian, British, and Australian mints. Most intriguing of all they said they will be
introducing error coins into circulating coinage for people to find. The new polymer notes in Britain, Canada, New Zealand and elsewhere have a bit of
tallow in them complain vegans. The American Numismatic Society (ANS) this week mounted an exhibit in the ANS foyer, displaying select examples
from the recently acquired Medallic Arts Company (MACO) archives. In 2018, the ANS acquired the archives of MACO, a collection of more than 50,000
items of historic and numismatic significance. MACO was founded in New York City around 1909 as a private mint producing medals and galvanos by
some of the most prominent American sculptors of the twentieth century. The ANS acquired the archives as part of the bankruptcy proceedings of the
Northwest Territorial Mint in a bid to preserve the heritage of the important mint and make available its archives for future study and research. British
Library put on display a rare coin of King Offa of Mercia, who reigned between 757AD to 796AD. He minted hundreds of gold dinars featuring his name
and the Islamic declaration of faith. The Christian ruler sought to trade with Europe and the Mediterranean including the then Muslim-controlled Spain,
which explains the coinage. Proof Platinum Eagles in years 2021 to 2025 will depict obverse designs emblematic of the five freedoms enumerated in the
First Amendment to the United States Constitution: the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to peaceably assemble,
and freedom to petition the government for a redress of grievances.














A $2 circulation coin marking the 100th anniversary of the First World War Armistice by the Royal Canadian Mint. Recalling the signing of the historic
peace treaty that officially ended the Great War on Nov. 11, 1918. A total of three million coins, including two million selectively colored and one million
unpainted, will be issued nationwide. On January 1st, 2015, Lithuania officially changed their national currency to the euro, joining many other
European nations in using the widely accepted monetary system. So, to celebrate, they broke a world record with a pyramid made out of their disused
coins, over a million one-cent pieces . The project was the brainchild of two Lithuanian physics students, Vytautas Jakštass and Domas Jokubauskis, who
wanted to create a fitting memorial to the currency they grew up with. Proof Platinum Eagles in years 2021 to 2025 will depict obverse designs
emblematic of the five freedoms enumerated in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution: the freedom of religion, freedom of speech,
freedom of the press, freedom to peaceably assemble, and freedom to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Cool Deep Space 9 coin from
Canada, about 31g, about $115. It’s the 25th anniversary of DS9 this year.
















In 1905 the International Workers of the World (IWW or Wobblies) was created. In 1906 Goldfield had suddenly emerged as the biggest, most
important, richest mining area in the United States. It would make a great place for the IWW to flex its muscles. In December 1906 and January 1907
they orchestrated small strikes for higher wages and it looked like the union would win this victory. But at the same time George Wingfield was gaining
strength among the mine owners. He has become the most important owner, powerful and was unscrupulous. He convinced Governor Sparks to get
Teddy Roosevelt to call in Federal Troops. He manipulated a jury into finding the strike leaders guilty of various crimes. The strike utterly failed.

The Other Coin: Ukraine and the Crimea Coins, Part 1: The Beginning

    Since the Ukraine and the Crimea are in the news a lot, a look at their coins can illuminate the basis of the struggle. First of all the Crimea was never part of the
Ukraine until Stalin gave it to Ukraine after deporting all the Crimean Tartars to Siberia. Even though the Ukraine snatched territory during the Russian Civil War 1917-
1921 it did not include the Crimea.






























    The Ukraine, which means borderland, was the home of the Scythians, Pechenegs, and various Slavic tribes that bordered the northern Black Sea of Greek
colonies, then the Roman and Byzantine Empires and then southern Russia. Almost a dozen Greek mints produced coins, then the Bosporus Kingdom (480BC-
342AD), and the Byzantine mint of Cherson (400-1071AD). The northern Black Sea was a transit area for grain, slaves, honey, amber, gold, lumber, and trade from
China, India, and Central Asia. Greek and Roman urban areas depended on the rich farmlands to feed their populations. Olbia is famous for their dolphin and gorgon
coins minted as early as 5th century BC. The Greeks began a tradition of cast coinage  that continued through the Byzantine period.
























    The coins of the Bosporus Kingdom have remarkable portraits of rulers, including Roman rulers often placed on the reverse in both gold and copper. They
worshiped Venus and Hercules and adopted Roman customs of trophies and architecture. Coins of Sauromates II (174-210 AD) with Roman emperors Septimus
Severus and Caracalla abd Hercules and the Golden hind. AAlso a coin of Rhescuporis I (68-90 AD) with king standing on captive before trophy and city gate with
equestrian statue. The Cherson area maintained a quasi-independent role to Constantinople and made their own cast bronze coins for 700 years. Cast coins of
Theodosius II, Justinian, and Basil I.





































It is thought that the mint of Cherson was used by the Rusians of Kiev to mint their first coins. The Rus princes, the same Varangians or Vikings seen in the TV
show
Vikings, had nominally united the Russian lands from Novgorod to the Black Sea, and Mstislav (988-1035AD), son of Grand Prince Vladimir and Anastasia,
daughter of the Byzantine emperor Constantine IX established Kiev as his capitol. The Byzantine imitations have on the reverse random letters or simple squares.
Russian had also recently become a written language based on Greek letters and several other symbols invented by Cyril (d.869), an Orthodox missionary. The first
Ukrainian coins have thin flans followed Arabic coinage and the coins were the size between a quarter and half dollar. Vladimir (978- 1015AD) had coins with actual
inscriptions in Russian: “Vladimir is on the throne and this is his silver,” Prince enthroned holding cross, reverse trident symbol of Vladimir used on modern Ukrainian
coins. These coins along with a few gold coins are so rare that they are considered to be medals or presentation pieces. His son Mstislav coins have been found in
sufficient quantity to be considered currency. Although Kiev became a city with churches, palaces, and a significant population, it was sacked by Russian Prince
Andrei of Suzdal in 1169 and razed by the Mongol hordes in 1240, transferring the capitol north to Vladimir, then Moscow (c.1380).



















    The Ukraine was the original homeland of Russia, but Moscow became the new master of all the Rus by agreeing to be the tax collector for the Mongols and
recovered in decades rather than centuries that it took Kiev. The Crimea and lands east of Ukraine all become homeland of the Mongol Golden Horde or the Crimean
khans until 1774. South of Kiev the nomadic tribes of the Cossacks ruled into the 20th century, so that the Ukraine had no territory on the Black Sea.

    Authorities said when a customer attempted to with-draw $20 on Sunday at around 11 p.m., the ATM machine spit out $100 bills in place of two $10s, When

glitch. The free-for-all continued for two-hours before authorities arrived. They “will be able to keep the additional money dispensed," the ATM company said. The
