No Motto/Motto Silver Certificates
The Series of 1935 $1 Silver Certificate was America’s last $1 bank note without the motto “In God We Trust” on the back, while the Series of 1957 $1 Silver Certificate was America’s first bank note with the motto “In God We Trust,” as well as the last $1 bank note series backed by silver. These fascinating notes have blue Treasury seals and serial numbers, unlike today’s green Federal Reserve Notes. This stunning collection is protected in a custom wallet.
 
The Original New York Penny
Prior to the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence in 1776, people in New York used whatever coins they could find. Most copper coins came from Europe, including the copper Duit from Holland. Because of its size and copper composition, the Duit was known as a “Penny” and is renowned as the first New York Penny. Struck between 1726 and 1794, it was issued by the Dutch East India Company and features the company’s initials “VOC” on one side. Over 220 years old!
 
Civil War 150th Commemorative Set – SAVE 25%!
Between 1861 and 1865, the Civil War divided the United States. It remains one of the most intriguing and popular events among collectors, and this amazing 150th anniversary set includes a genuine Civil War bullet that was recovered from a Civil War battle site. Also featured is the 24K gold-layered U.S. Quarter honoring 1863 Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania and the 1962 U.S. stamp commemorating the 1862 Battle of Shiloh. Includes a custom display.
 
Racketeer Nickel
The 1883 Liberty Head Nickel is one of America’s most scandalous coins. When the first coins were minted, a large “V” (Roman number “5”) was placed in the center of the reverse – but the word “Cents” did not appear anywhere on the coin. As a result, con-men gold-plated these nickels and passed them off as “new” $5 gold coins! The U.S. Mint soon added “Cents” to the design to stop the scam. This original “No Cents” 1883 nickel is richly plated in 24K gold – just like the “racketeer” nickel from 135 years ago!
 
Sunken Treasure Coin Collection
In January 1809, a trading ship named the Admiral Gardner left England for Bengal, India. On board was a hoard of newly minted coins that were to be delivered to the British East India Company. However, the Admiral Gardner sank in a sudden storm and the coins were supposedly lost forever – but nearly 200 year later, the wreck was discovered and some of the treasure coins were found. This 10 Cash coin was actually recovered from the wreck of the Admiral Gardner, and it is presented in a colorful display folder.
 
Pearl Harbor Coin Collection and Japanese Invasion Note
World War II produced some remarkable collectibles, and this collection includes some amazing genuine relics from the war. The 1941 Jefferson Nickel dates from the year the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor to bring the U.S. into the war, while the 1942-1945 35% silver Nickel and 1943 Lincoln Steel Penny were wartime emergency coins and the 1944-1946 Lincoln Penny was made with recycled copper from shell cases recovered from battlefields and battleships. This collection also includes a $10 Invasion Note that the Japanese planned to use in place of national currency in Hawaii and other places in the Pacific – but fortunately, it was never needed!
 

Rare, Obsolete Silver Commemoratives!

Between 1892 and 1954, the U.S. Mint produced a series of remarkable 90% silver commemorative Half Dollars that celebrated great people and events from American history. The coins were legal tender and have one-time-only designs, but they were produced in extremely limited editions and did not circulate – so they were rarely seen when they were issued … and are virtually impossible to find today.
 
Fortunately, we are able to offer a nice selection of these rarely seen, obsolete silver treasures – but you must hurry, because supplies are limited and we expect to sell out soon. Each coin comes in a protective holder and a custom wooden case.
 
1920 Pilgrim Tercentenary Silver Half Dollar.
To mark the 300th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620 – a defining event in American history – the U.S. Mint struck a special 90% silver Half Dollar in 1920. Designed by famed Boston sculptor Cyrus E. Dallin, it shows Governor William Bradford of the Plymouth Colony on one side and the Mayflower ship that brought the Pilgrims to America on the other side.
 
1925 Lexington-Concord Sesquicentennial Half Dollar.
The Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775 marked the start of the American Revolution, and the U.S. Mint issued this remarkable 150th anniversary 90% silver Half Dollar in 1925. The obverse features Daniel Chester French’s famous Minuteman statue representing the militia that were ready the fight the British on a minute’s notice; the reverse is the Old Belfry at Lexington. A beautiful coin celebrating one of the key events in the fight for independence.
 
1926 Sesquicentennial of American Independence Silver Half Dollar.
The 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence was a cause of great celebration in 1926, and one of the highlights was the U.S. Mint’s one-time-only commemorative Half Dollar. The obverse shows the busts of George Washington and Calvin Coolidge, who was President in 1926 and was therefore the first living person to appear on a U.S. coin. The reverse is the Liberty Bell by John R. Sinnock – the very same design that later appeared on the Franklin Half Dollar in 1948!
 
1946-1951 Booker T. Washington Silver Half Dollar.
The Booker T. Washington coin was issued to commemorate the work of Washington, who helped educate freed slaves after the Civil War, and the proceeds from the sale of the coins was used to build memorials to his memory. Washington was born into slavery but he founded Tuskegee University and became a leading voice for the integration of African Americans into society.
 
1951-1954 Washington/Carver Silver Half Dollar.
The last commemorative Half Dollar from the “classic” era, the Carver/Washington coin was issued over 60 years ago and is a key to any collection. It honors both Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver, the legendary inventor and botanist from Tuskegee University. Both men believed that African Americans should advance in society through personal improvement, and they devoted their lives to better the lives of others.
 
1892-1893 Columbian Exposition Half Dollar.
In 1892 and 1893, the United Sates Mint struck the first commemorative coin in U.S. history – a 90% silver Half Dollar to mark the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s discovery of the New World. The coin features a portrait of Columbus by Charles E. Barber (who also designed the Barber Half Dollar), while the reverse showing Columbus’s Santa Maria flagship was designed by George T. Morgan, whose Morgan Silver Dollar is one of America’s most legendary coins. This coin has been out of issue for 125 years, and only a few remain!
 
 

Halves You Have to Have!

The Half Dollar is one of America’s most iconic and beloved coins. Once a mainstay of the economy and a vital part of American commerce, it has now virtually disappeared from circulation and has become an elusive treasure. But now, this is your chance to rediscover the beauty and history of America’s most famous Half Dollars – from century-old silver classics to the Kennedy Half Dollars that still excite collectors to this day.
 
1892-1893 Columbian Exposition Half Dollar.
In 1892 and 1893, the United Sates Mint struck the first commemorative coin in U.S. history – a 90% silver Half Dollar to mark the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s discovery of the New World. The coin features a portrait of Columbus by Charles E. Barber (who also designed the Barber Half Dollar), while the reverse showing Columbus’s Santa Maria flagship was designed by George T. Morgan, whose Morgan Silver Dollar is one of America’s most legendary coins. This coin has been out of issue for 125 years, and only a few remain!
 
JFK Complete Circulating 40% Silver Half Dollar Collection.
Due to the rising cost of silver, the U.S. Mint last made 90% silver coins in 1964. From 1965 to 1969, however, it made Kennedy Half Dollars for circulation in 40% silver … the only 40% silver coins in U.S. history released for circulation! This collection features each year’s 40% silver coin – a fabulous collection from a fascinating era in U.S. Mint history.
 
San Francisco Mint Barber Silver Half Dollar.
Charles E. Barber was one of America’s most famous and prolific coin designers, and his classic Barber Half Dollar is one of the iconic coins in American history. The coin was struck in the beauty of 90% silver, but it was made only from 1892 to 1915 – so it has been out of circulation for over a century. This coin was produced at the U.S. Mint in San Francisco with the famous “S” mint mark on the reverse, below the eagle.
 
Complete S-Mint Franklin Half Dollars.
The Franklin Half Dollar was made only from 1948 to 1963, but the U.S. Mint in San Francisco struck fewer coins than any other branch of the U.S. Mint. In fact, the coin was made in San Francisco with the “S” mint mark in only five years: 1949, 1951, 1952, 1953, and 1954 – and this collection features all five coins in a deluxe presentation case. All coins were made in 90% silver.
 
Walking Liberty Half Dollar Mint Mark Collection – SAVE $20!
The Walking Liberty Half Dollar is one of America’s most beautiful coins. Designed by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, it features Liberty wrapped in the American flag while striding towards the rising sun and the dawn of a new day in American history. It was made only from 1916 to 1947, and this collection features one stunning coin from each of the three U.S. Mints where it was struck: Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. All coins were made in 90% silver.
 
JFK Mint Mark Collection.
The Kennedy Half Dollar was first struck in 1964 to honor President John F. Kennedy, and it remains a moving tribute to one of our nation’s most popular leaders. However, it has not been released into circulation since 2001, making it increasingly hard to find even a single coin. This collection features superb uncirculated coins from both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints, plus a hard-to-find proof (the U.S. Mint’s highest quality strike) from the San Francisco Mint.
 

September 11th ~ Never Forget

Seventeen years ago on September 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the worst terrorist attack on American soil. Today, September 11 is a national day of mourning and remembrance for the victims of the attack and to honor the courageous first responders who risked their lives to save others. 

Now, you can join the day of remembrance – and keep the spirit of American resilience alive – with special collectibles marking September 11 as the most solemn date in our history.

 

 

9/11 Silver Proof National Medal – Gold Layered
9/11 Silver Proof National Medal – .999 Silver

In 2011, the U.S. Mint produced the National Medal to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Struck in one ounce of pure silver and produced to the same proof quality as the finest U.S. coins, it is the same size and weight as the Silver Eagle bullion coin. The obverse features Liberty holding the Lamp of Remembrance; behind her are beacons of light stretching skyward to symbolize the World Trade Center towers in New York City. It has been out of issue since 2011, but the last few medals are still available. The silver medal comes in the original U.S. Mint packaging, while the 24K gold-layered medal is presented in a deluxe wooden display case. This could be your last chance to own the U.S. government’s official September 11 tribute!

 

 

9/11 Silver National Medal Pendant, Gold Plated

This is the official 9/11 silver medal that was struck by the U.S. Mint to commemorate the 10th anniversary, but it has been richly layered in 24K gold and placed in a golden pendant with a matching chain. A great way to show that you “Never Forget” … but availability is diminishing and you may never have another opportunity to own such a moving memorial to 9/11. The pendant comes in a deluxe jewelry case.

9/11 Silver National Medal PR70 Limited Edition

The 9/11 silver National Medal was released by the U.S. Mint on June 20, 2011 as the U.S. government’s official 10th anniversary tribute to 9/11. It is also the ONLY such tribute in history. Remarkably, a small number of medals were certified as being released on the first day of issue … and some were also graded as absolutely perfect Proof 70 (PR70). But only 3,647 medals received this special designation, making it one of the rarest and most sought-after U.S. Mint collectibles in modern history … and all but a few have already been snapped up through the years. Best of all, it comes in a custom-designed wooden display case.

Last “O” Mint Morgan Silver Dollar MS64 Condition – SAVE 10%!

1963 End of an Era Coin and Currency Set – SAVE 10%!

In 1963, the U.S. Mint struck the last-ever Franklin Half Dollar AND the U.S. Treasury produced the last-ever $2 United States Note. The Franklin Half Dollar was struck in 90% silver; the $2 United States Note features a portrait of Thomas Jefferson on the front and is distinguished from other currency by a red Treasury seal and red serial numbers (unlike today’s currency with green printing). 1963 was the end of an era … and now, both of these historic “last” issues are brought together in an exceptional matching set.
