For the Love Of Ancients

We like to talk vintage at The Coin Vault. Mainly this is our focus when it comes to United States coinage and currency, but this time, let us talk vintage in a different way. And when we say vintage, we mean reallllly vintage. We mean ancient.

But either way you swing on the matter, ancient coins are pure examples of the importance coins have had through the thousands of years man has walked this Earth.

It is not often that we get to experience the number of currency deals we have done either, but it is something we have welcomed over the last month or so. Seeing vintage paper money alongside fractional notes, $2 red seals, funny backs, large size notes, and of course, silver certificates, is something we quite frankly enjoy.

Perhaps the most popular of deals we offer always include silver certificates. Whether they are circulated or uncirculated, include consecutive serial numbers, or have that prestigious star on them, paper money collectors are heavily involved with silver certificates. But do ...read more
