Basketball Hall of Fame Coin Series Pushed To TBD on U.S. Mint Schedule

March and April looked completely different this year. Normally at this point in April, we would have just got through watching some of the best college basketball games to date and everyone would be talking about the new champion of the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament. While that is not our reality, we did want to continue to clue you in on the United States Mint’s pending schedule of products that were set to release on the Final Four, or April 4th originally. Plans have changed due to obvious reasons but we still wanted to dive into the Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Series that celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame...read more

100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: 1909-S VDB Lincoln Cent

100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: 1909-S VDB Lincoln Cent

It is no surprise that the mention of the 1909 V.D.B. Lincoln penny has frequented the airwaves around you if you are a true collector in the hobby. The initials themselves, matched with the man and designer they call Victor David Brenner, are more highly collectible than most pennies out there. But it is even more so collectible, and pricey for that matter, if the 1909 is followed by an “S” that represents the San Francisco Mint.

A part of the top 100 Greatest United States Coins as put together in the fourth edition of the Whitman Publication by author Jeff Garrett with help from Ron Guth, the 1909-S V.D.B. Lincoln cent is a dream coin among collectors. With influence from...read more

If you are a penny collector, most likely you have each of these or are more inclined to own just one of the varieties. Based on how long they were produced, we would take a guess that the Indian Head cent is a top choice among them.

But how much do you really know about the Indian Head cent design? While we often have them available online in grab bags, the 50 years the coin was in production during the late 1800s into the early 20th century has a lot of...read more
