100 Greatest U.S. Coin Series: 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar

100 Greatest U.S. Coin Series: 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar

In the late 1890s, a new series of United States coinage was put into production. That series, comprised of halves, dimes, and quarters, was named after their designer, Charles E. Barber. While the Barber coinage was ultimately put into production by the United States Mint, its appeal was met with mixed reviews and in 1915, the Mint decided it best to retire the designs as their minimum circulation requirement was up. What was soon to follow is arguably one of the most popular and visibly appealing series of coins. Their production, beginning in 1916, immediately changed how coins were designed in the future.

In fact, in 2016, their 100th Anniversary was celebrated in 24kt gold by the Mint. Those coins? A Mercury...read more

Silver of the Month: Tooth Fairy 1oz .999 Silver Medallion

Silver of the Month: Tooth Fairy 1oz .999 Silver Medallion

There are a number of childhood moments, or milestones, that take place that are worth remembering to parents. When you first learn to talk and walk, your first haircut, your first tooth, the first day of school, and so on. There is one in particular that we can help celebrate without keeping the ‘remnants’ of the memory: first lost tooth.

While there are a number of big moments for us as a kid, there are also moments as parents that you get to experience for the first time while actually going through them a number of times afterward. While your child has lost their tooth and placed it under their pillow at night, it is your responsibility to call on that magical creature that comes along and keeps it in exchange...read more

Robert Scot: United States Chief Engraver Series

Robert Scot: United States Chief Engraver Series

To be first in or of anything is quite remarkable if you really think about it. To be the first at a place such as the United States Mint is extremely remarkable. To be the first Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, well that is something no one can ever change. That is history-making.

2019 Holiday Series: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing...

2019 Holiday Series: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing...

♫ Glory to the newborn King! Peace on Earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled ♫

We are going to be quite frank and to the point. Among the presents and the food and all the other frivolous things that have made Christmas exciting over the years, let us NOT FORGET one all-important thing this holiday season: Christ is THE reason for the season and we MUST take time to reflect, remember, and celebrate the fact that His birth was God’s greatest gift to mankind. As we pass along the gifts from one person to another, let us all remember all that the Lord has given to us in His grace.

With all this in mind, we made sure to include this sentiment in our 2019...read more
