Silver Bullion Spotlight: Religious .999 Fine Silver Collection

Silver Bullion Spotlight: Religious .999 Fine Silver Collection

Easter is just over a month away and we have been selling our themed-bullion pieces left and right. While hopping bunny rabbits and baskets full of candy are what is mostly thought of this time of year, especially when you have young children, let us not forget what it is really about: the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

So in addition to our fun, bright Easter-themed silver bullion options, we also happen to offer religious silver in bars and rounds. While the religious-themed silver is available year-round, it makes sense that it is also offered this time of year and happens to do well because of it. We have a wide selection that features both enameled, plain, and 2pc gift sets, but we wanted to talk about a few of our pieces that have been popular as of late...read more

Women In History: Coin and Numismatic Contributions

Women In History: Coin and Numismatic Contributions

Perhaps one of the most intriguing parts of the numismatic hobby is how rich in history it is. Think about it; the change in your pocket could be 50+ years old. The collection you hold so dear is probably littered with paper money used in the 1800s. And let us not forget about the famed Morgan Silver Dollar that is one of the most coveted, if not the most coveted, coins in the business. Mintage years: 1878-1921. The most recently minted coin is nearly 100 years old. Is the picture painted yet?

Now as we identify the rich history of coins and currency, let us identify another key element in its history: women. As the month of March has been deemed Women’s History Month, it is only right we identify their contributions to the numismatic...read more

Silver of the Month: Pink Rose 1oz .999 Silver Bar Enameled

Silver of the Month: Pink Rose 1oz .999 Silver Bar Enameled

Springtime is rapidly approaching and we, in Midwest Indiana, can hardly wait! The warmer weather, more daylight, and the greener grass is always a reminder that things can always get better. But perhaps one of the best sights to see in the Spring is blooming flowers and more specifically, roses.

Red, yellow, white, and pink are traditionally thought of when you think of roses. It is one of the most well-known flowers and depending on what color you go for, they can carry a lot of symbolism. While roses, and flowers in general, are beautiful, they only last for a short amount of time when given to someone special. But what if we told you we...read more

100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: U.S. Assay Office $50 Gold Slugs

One of the most significant events to happen in the 19th century was the California Gold Rush. Beginning in 1848, the discovery of gold nuggets in the Sacramento Valley sparked a massive influx of people to make their way to the Golden State. While nearly $2 billion worth of the precious metal was ultimately extracted from the area, the discovery of gold created a different set of problems for the people who actually inhabited the area pre-Gold Rush.

By the end of 1849, nearly 100,000 people of non-native status were inhabiting the California territory in comparison to the previous less than 1,000.
