The year 1913 saw the change from the Liberty Head design, used on the five-cent piece since 1883, to the Indian Head motif. No 1913-dated Liberty Head nickels should have been coined, but today five are known. New contemporary evidence proves Samuel W. Brown, a former mint employee, first showed the coin at a 1919 meeting of the Chicago Coin Club, challenging long-held theories of how these famed rarities came to be.
Starting from a small landlocked kingdom in Northeastern Spain, the crown of Aragon kept expanding until Alfonso the Magnanimous (1416-1458) was king of six separate Kingdoms, each with its own distinct coinage. This presentation surveys the expansion of the crown of Aragon and the evolution its coinage ending with a survey of the coinage of each of Alfonso’s realms.
John Law medals are some of the most sophisticated medals ever produced. Initially intended as a good joke, they have complex linguistic, religious, mythological, and historical messages intended to provide hours of entertainment to the purchaser. These medals tell the rise and fall of John Law, the Scot who brought France to the brink of bankruptcy.

Building up your collection of U.S. numismatic literature? Here's your chance to fill in gaps from many of the top 200 nominees of the 100 greatest works of numismatic literature as voted by readers of The Asylum in 2009, compliments of Richard Stockley Books.
Some of the most important works in American numismatics have been in active use for a century or more. Their dependence upon solid historical methodology, including the use of primary source evidence, has made them useful even as interpretations change and new evidence is discovered. We'll discuss historical methodology in a broad sense using these works as our focus.
This discussion will be targeted for serious collectors who are spending several $1000 per month or more on numismatic purchases. At that level, the financial stakes become substantial on a longer-term basis. Collectors must develop a host of evaluation skills to ensure that their collections are composed of premium coins that have the highest probability of appreciation. Collecting research takes time but is well worth the effort to avoid collecting mistakes. Plenty of time will be allowed for Q&A.
This presentation will discuss evaluating the condition of coins, the inconsistent grading of coins by third-party grading services, and determining the market value of coins. It will then introduce CAC – Certified Acceptance Corporation – and its dramatic effect on the marketplace when it comes to both demand and pricing. Examples illustrate fascinating behavior seen in today’s coin market.
Much has been said in the debate about how to recruit new, non-collectors into numismatics. But what about new collectors who have already started? This talk will dive deep into how the next generation of collectors (who are already collecting) is approaching the hobby: their interests, approaches, mindsets, and more. By examining their involvement with numismatics, we can not only help grow their passion but also become better collectors ourselves.
