100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: 1933 Indian Head Eagle

100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: 1933 Indian Head Eagle

United States coinage has a rich history. United States gold coinage is a major contributor to that fact. Why? Beginning in 1795, gold coinage was produced on pretty much a continual and uninterrupted basis. That is, until the year 1933 when the suspension of all gold coinage took place.

In our next edition of our blog series focusing on Whitman Publication’s fourth edition of the top 100 Greatest United States coins, we look at a gold coin which is rare not because of its mintage, but because of how its story ended up. With author Jeff Garrett’s explanation and assistance by Ron Guth, we look deeper at why 1933 was such an important year...read more

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
