The Last Meeting
29 members listened to David Elliott’s presentation on Jewish coins noting that the Israeli coins copy motifs from ancient coins. Trish and I had a good time at the
museum and hope to continue. She’s recovering from surgery, so September may be iffy, probably go anyway by myself. Thanks for Shannon Holmes for filling in
as secretary. Don’t miss Robert Rodriguez’s presentation. You will learn about high end auctioning as well as see some colonial treasures that you might not ever see
again. Ellis Island .25 in the mail. Should have them for the September meeting. Only five silver club medals left at $65, get yours before they’re gone. We have
about 10 of the brass and 20 of the copper. Bring up to 5 coins for the bid board now. I noticed a lot more coins on the bid board. We will have board meetings
before the regular meeting and vigorously tell people to be quiet so we can conduct business. Contact me with suggestions, concerns, or topics you would like to see:

Not the Other Coin: Coins on the Web
Mark Owig e-mailed me to ask that I put a link to his website where he has introduction to coin collecting. It is on US coins and nice, particularly, for an embed from
the US Mint that shows how coins are made. http://www.coin-collecting-guide-for-beginners.com/us-coins.html For more detailed information on particular US
coin series I would recommend Littleton, https://www.littletoncoin.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Display%7C10001%7C29555%7C-1%7C%7CLearnNav%
7CGuide-to-United-States-Coinage.html and for anything coin related both Coin World and Coin Week have all their back issues categorized by topic and searchable:
both also discuss US coin series. Redbook has a book for each US coin series now too. ANA has also made its back issues of the Numismatist searchable if you are
a subscriber. Newman’s Numismatic Portal https://nnp.wustl.edu/ is putting all the material: books, US coins, old magazines, US Mint records, and the E-sylum
digest of coin news on-line that ANA is also putting out, where I get at least half my coin articles.
For ancient coins, the Ancient Coin Club of Los Angeles has put up a web resource guide, http://www.accla.org/links.html and I would strongly recommend
www. wildwinds.com for searching coins and www.vcoins.com for buying them. Of special mention should be Edward Waddel’s site that has the standard
reference for Ptolemaic coin Sovoronos as well as several articles for beginning collectors, https://www.coin.com/ Forum Ancient Coins claims over 10,000
articles on ancient coins with lots of pictures and discussion forums. http://www.forumancientcoins.com/ Ilya Zlobin also presents a large number of articles and
videos on coins and ancient art. I watched a video made at the classic section of a German museum I would never otherwise see. He is a Russian living in NY and
sells coin advertised at about 10 times market value. Do dicker with him. I bought a coin at less than ½ his asking price of a coin “reduced” 75% or for $66,
originally $346.75-- a very rare Byzantine coin with Andronicus III mounted on a horse. https://trustedcoins.com/ilyazlobin/ San Jose Coin Club has the best list of
coin shows in our area, www.sanjosecoinclub.org Finally u-tube has thousands of coin videos on all topics, including Reno Coin Club videos. I am sure this is just
scratching the surface.
Numismatically yours, David Elliott
Q. David Bowers has a new book out on the Guide to the Lincoln Cent $19.95, 320pp. Rave reviews as usual. Andrew Jackson is likely to remain on the
$20. Replacing Jackson with abolitionist Tubman was a decision made in the spring of 2016 by then-Treasury Secretary Jack Lew. Lew’s decision was part of a
package of changes that were to be incorporated into the Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s preparation of more counterfeit-resistant paper money designs to be
introduced in the 2020s. Lew decided that the backs of the $5 and $10 Federal Reserve Notes are also to be transformed. He asked for five women’s rights activists
be put on the back of the new $10 to replace the Treasury Building. They are Sojourner Truth, Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul and Elizabeth Cady
Stanton. Lew also wanted to put Marian Anderson, Eleanor Roosevelt and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the back of the $5 although the Lincoln Memorial building
would also remain. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is likely to stop or greatly modify all these changes. Update on the enhance set sales. After a near sell out,
so many of the sets were returned that they were put on sale again and they have still not sold out. You can buy them cheaper on e-bay than at the mint. Canada is
doing butterflies, painted or bejeweled, as well as balloon race, wolf and moon, Canadian fauna, children learning hockey, bat plated with rhodium, WWII bombers,
3D goose, whale, cougar. turtle in a bead, and a 1 kilo maple leaf.
Nuie to mark the 70th anniversary of the discovery of the “Flying Saucer” in Roswell has produced a 3D, 40 mm, 40 g .925 fine silver, glow-in-the-dark coin.
Mintage is 700. Black Ruthenium is all the rage to embellish coins:
In this remarkable CoinWeek IQ video, Robert Rodriguez sits down with NGC Chairman Mark Salzberg at the American Numismatic Association’s
(ANA) 2017 World’s Fair of Money to discuss The Resolute Americana Collection of 1776 Continental Dollars – the most complete collection of the type
ever assembled. http://www.coinweek.com/video-news/resolute-americana-collection-of-continental-dollars/ It’s a half hour, maybe I’ll show it, if Robert doesn’t
make it. It is really remarkable what he has achieved is in so short a time. PMG has compiled a list of The 17 Most Important US Paper Money Books That
Should Be In Your Library and reviews all the books, https://www.pmgnotes.com/news/article/6070/The-17-Most-Important-US-Paper-Money-Books-That-Should-
Be-In-Your-Library/ The University of Calgary has put its 22,000 ancient coin collection on line, but the search engine is poor. They just complete a Coins of
Jesus display, http://emuseum.ucalgary.ca/ A long-forgotten hidden hoard of Roman coins unearthed on farmland in Lincolnshire is coming up for auction.
The complete ‘Near Spilsby’ collection of 281 Roman coins was discovered by two metal detectorists. The mainly bronze coins, featuring Roman emperor
Constantine the Great and members of his family, would have been buried in the ground near Spilsby around 340 AD but were never recovered by the original
In 1982, the People’s Republic of China issued its first gold Panda bullion pieces from 1/10 ounce to 1 ounce. To mark the 35th anniversary of the introduction
of the Panda, the People’s Bank of China has issued three gold and silver commemorative proofs. A 20 mm, 5 g .999 fine gold ¥80 presents a portrait of a Giant
Panda peering through an array of year dates running from 1982 to 2017. Mintage is 50,000.A 33 mm, 15 g .999 fine silver ¥5 shows silhouette of a cartoon Panda
behind lines of growth rings each marked by year date numbers. Mintage is 200,000. Thirdly is one for the bimetallic collectors: a 45 mm ¥500 having a collar of 12 g
of .999 fine silver and a 30 g .999 fine gold core. The reverse features a Giant Panda munching a bamboo stalk. Around the silver rim are Pandas images from earlier
Panda issues. Mintage is 6,000. All obverses depict the Temple of Heaven in Beijing – as featured on all previous Panda coins – and the caption in Chinese that
translates as “In Commemoration of the 35th Anniversary of the Issuance of Chinese Panda Gold Coin.” Numismatic News reader Albert Carlisle may be $50,000
to $100,000 richer just because he read the lead story on the find of a 1990 “No S” proof cent in the July 4 issue of Numismatic News. After he saw the story, he
checked his 10 1990 proof sets and found five of them contain the rarity! He sent an image of all five proof sets in one photo to be sure no mistakes were made, and
sure enough all five sets contained the 1990 “No S” proof cent. Gold coins purchased as part of the Eckfeldt collection by Robert Rodriguez: Jacob Eckfeldt
assayer medals left and bottom, Adam Eckfeldt, his fathers chief coiner medal and an 1803 $10 eagle. Nice article about in in the July-August 2017 MCA Advisory
magazine. He also acquired 2 silver Captain Jacob Jones medal for his victory over the British and a very rare 1777 silver Washington (Voltaire) medal, with the first
image of Washington. Both are neat. While at ANA, I was able to acquire two 1659 Lord Baltimore silvers, a fourpence and sixpence, the finest of each with the
fourpence the finest of all Lord Baltimore. Additionally, a 1785 copper Immunis Columbia.
