Back in 2015, the United States Mint began a series that would be released every other year.

The Coin Vault Asks: What's Your Favorite Coin?

Knowledge is power. This rings true throughout everything we do in life, but even more so in our line of numismatic business.

On the other side of the coin (pun intended), the more you know about what you are selling is also important when it comes to getting the most out of your collection.

So for Nikki, a buyer and seller in her daytime job for our parent company, SilverTowne, and a camera operator for the live show at night, her knowledge is vast about a number of coins. This allows her to make the best decisions when purchasing or selling to...read more

100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins Series: 1982-D Washington Half Dollar Commemorative

There is an "unofficial" line drawn where vintage commemoratives end and modern commemoratives begin. Although some collectors believe vintage are the only ones worth mentioning, the success of the United States Mint’s commemorative program has included a great deal of both.

Perhaps the single biggest bridge between the two, vintage and modern, cannot be found more apparent than on the one that quite possibly revived the importance of the program nearly 40 years ago. This revival of sorts also included the first President of the United States of America.

So how fitting that this breath of fresh commemorative air make the list...read more
