must-know tips to avoid gold scams

Adding gold, silver or platinum bullion coins or ingots to an investment portfolio can be a smart choice, but knowing your seller can be a crucial choice, the Professional Numismatists Guild advises in a statement issued Nov. 4. PNG is a non-profit organization of many of the country’s top rare coin and bullion coin experts. In recent months, law enforcement officials in Florida, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania and Utah have charged several reputedly unscrupulous merchants with selling counterfeit coins to unsuspecting investors and/or not paying for genuine coins submitted for sale by customers. “To avoid potential scams, such as counterfeits, and to avoid paying too much when you buy or receiving too little when you sell, investors absolutely must know the credentials of the bullion dealer,” cautioned Richard Weaver, PNG president. “If you…

delaware american innovation 2019 $1 reverse proof coin

On Nov. 7, the U.S. Mint released the Reverse Proof version of the American Innovation coin honoring Delaware. Minted at the San Francisco Mint, the new coin features an inverted proof finish with a frosted background. All of the design elements are polished to the same mirror-like finish. The Delaware coin is the first of the series to be released in 2019 as part of the multi-year series. It honors Annie Jump Cannon, a Delaware-born internationally recognized astronomer who invented a system for classifying stars that is still in use today. The reverse design features a silhouette of Annie Jump Cannon against the expansive night sky. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “ANNIE JUMP CANNON,” “CLASSIFYING THE STARS,” and “DELAWARE.” The obverse design features the Statue of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions…

Here are some answers sent from our e-newsletter readers. Read more responses at www.numismaticnews.com. Do you think special finishes like Reverse Proof and Enhanced Uncirculated are worth collecting? Why or why not? Yes. Allan Brash Address withheld Yes! Jeff Urban Address withheld No, too much of a good thing is not good. I like collecting and enjoy the art but when you overload collectors, you will eventually make them stop. Guy Cleveland via Facebook Modern proofs tend to be a bit gimmicky in the short run. Proofs are something you buy for your grandchildren. David Wyndoze via Facebook Not for me. I gave up on the Silver eagles because of all the gimmick coins and manufactured rarities. Jimmy McPleasant via Facebook No. Kevin Balka via Facebook Absolutely not! They are coins made for the specific purpose of taking money out of the customer’s pockets…

an exciting time to be back with nn

Hello, good readers! I would like to formally introduce myself as editor of Numismatic News. You may have read the kind introduction letter that Corinne Zielke, Numismatics publisher, wrote in the Oct. 29 issue. As Corinne mentioned, this isn’t my first rodeo with NN and its sister magazines. I had the privilege to work for more than a decade under the tutelage of Mr. David Harper, longtime editor. I can say, without a doubt, that everything I know about the numismatics hobby and industry, I learned from him. Thank you, Dave. Even with all the knowledge he imparted on me over the years, his shoes are mighty big ones to fill – and I know I simply can’t. However, I promise to do my best to carry on the spirit of Numismatic…

Commemorative Coin Subject I would personally like to see a commemorative coin depicting the True Desire of the Founding Fathers’ intentions of having a non-partisan government. The country has strayed so far from the original intention. I have actually been to vote where I would not be allowed at the polls unless I declared one of two parties. Jason Green Gainesville, Ga. U.S. Mint Customer Service Part Two In the Oct. 1 issue of Numismatic News, my letter was published about the U.S. Mint’s terrible customer service. Now for the rest of the story. I called their customer service five times between June and October trying to resolve my issue. They stone-walled me and even lied to me about the disposition of my claim by saying it was “in process.” I made my final call on…
