Religious Easter .999 Fine Silver Gifts

Religious Easter .999 Fine Silver Gifts

Easter is just 12 days away and we here at SilverTowne have experienced a different kind of year surrounding Easter-themed silver bullion. While normally we would still have available specific pieces surrounding the holiday, a certain “silver squeeze” happening in February alongside an ongoing high demand for the precious metal, we have had to streamline production by only offering core pieces. That means when we had Easter silver bullion, it sold fast with no expectations of making more and all of that happened months in advance of Easter Sunday.

However, we are here to remind you that we DO have a few religious-themed silver bullion pieces that would make exceptional gifts! While candy and hopping bunny...read more

100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: 1854-O Liberty Head Double Eagle

The largest circulating gold coin to have ever come from America was almost a given to make it on the 100 Greatest United States Coins list compiled in the Whitman Publishing fourth edition of the series. However, the question is, which date and why? While there are a number of possibilities stemming from the series with the potential for more than one to be outlined from the list, there is one that sticks out more than others.

With author Jeff Garrett leading us along in the publication with help from Ron Guth, we take a closer look at this top 50 contender that boasts a small mintage, a New Orleans designation, and a total certified population lower than...read more

Evolution Of A Denomination Series: Five-Cent Pieces Part Two

Evolution Of A Denomination Series: Five-Cent Pieces Part Two

We last left off the series covering United States five-cent pieces smack dab in the middle of the Liberty Head (V-Nickel) coins. While the series made a 30-year run, it was time for an upgrade in 1913. Thus, the Indian Head (Buffalo) Nickel was introduced.

Indian Head or Buffalo Nickels (1913-1938)

While Charles Barber’s design of the Liberty Head nickel had been in production since 1883, the coinage fell victim to Theodore Roosevelt’s call for more appealing and classic design changes when it came to United States coinage. As the Coinage Act of 1890 allowed for a change in design after the 25-year minimum, it was not long until the Indian...read more

100 Greatest American Currency Notes Series: Seldom Seen In Its Own Time $500 Silver Certificate, Series of 1878 and 1880

100 Greatest American Currency Notes Series: Seldom Seen In Its Own Time $500 Silver Certificate, Series of 1878 and 1880

While in the wide world of paper money, there are certain notes out there still that are difficult to find information about. That could mean a number of things like how many were printed or even how they were used. That is certainly a question about our next entry following the 100 Greatest American Currency notes series as featured in the Whitman Publishing publication. While authors Q. David Bowers and David M. Sundman may not know too much about this entry, they do happen to have a great deal of knowledge about currency, which leads us to believe that their assumption on this note makes more sense than not.
