  • Surviving the chase

    11 Feb 2015 | 9:49 am
    Once I heard about a collector who didn't care what he had to pay for a coin, and cared even less what he could eventually sell his collection for.  I have yet to meet him, but he probably does exist—somewhere.  More typically, collectors envision their accumulations as having some value above and beyond the ethereal benefit that comes from personal satisfaction.  But is that really true?  Do we stand a chance, financially, of surviving the chase?  Most of us don't think about that too much, perhaps as a defense mechanism to ward off anxiety attacks.  But…
  • Did the Ancients believe the Earth was round?

    10 Feb 2015 | 8:26 pm
    A debate over whether the ancients knew the world is round has been simmering for centuries, and still pops up now and then.  In the February 1998 issue of The Celator, Michael Marotta presented a well thought out argument for the affirmative ("Ancient coins show they knew it was round"). Examining the literature and numismatic evidence, he concluded that the ancients did indeed know the world is round and that the globes depicted on ancient coins (both Greek and Roman) are sometimes a representation of the Earth.  Evidence and interpretations in these sorts of debates may continue…

If the coin happens to bear the portrait of a king or emperor, the answer may seem obvious. But what about the iconography of the reverse? Does the coin promote some political program, or record some historical event? Perhaps it pays hommage to a deity, or alludes to a social value. The possibilities are virtually endless, and they range from the patently obvious to the incredibly obscure.The figural bronze coins…

    As people keep asking about "my" 1726 kopek, here is the story. I discovered the coin in late 1988 at the TIETJEN, Hamburg, Germany, coin auction catalog. The picture was poor, downscaled, bound to pass under the radar. I had Tietjen send me the coin for inspection. In hand it looked ugly. Poorly executed (see lettering "kopeika") and pretty worn. But  genuine, no doubt about that. It was before internet. I had only my books and catalogs to consult. I found three pictures of the 1726 kopek. All three were different from each other, different dies each! And mine was still different from…

    Gold coins have been a store of value for over 2000 years, from the first natural electrum coins struck in ancient Lydia to modern American gold eagles.  Gold serves as a valuable hedge against uncertain financial markets, and coins are the most convenient way to hold physical gold.  Coins have more liquidity than gold bullion bars, and there's no excitement to investing in gold via a precious metals ETF - holding gold in your hand is half the fun! Anyone interested in gold coin investment has an unlimited range of options.  But for the purposes of this article, I'll divide gold coins…

    It's not just copper and silver coins that tone - gold coins tone too!  Surprisingly, many coin collectors remain unaware that gold even tones at all.  While gold has little chemical reactivity compared to some of its metallic brother elements, gold is not completely inert.   A quick chemistry note here: what coin collectors call "toning", a discoloration of a coin's surface, actually encompasses a wide range of chemical reactions between the surface of the coin and outside elements.  For example, the "rainbow" toning seen on many Morgan dollars is the result of a reaction between…
