"Athena Coin: Silver Tetradrachm of Athens" (#CRCO00013)
In the decades following the Persian wars Greek coinage was entering a transitional stage which was to see the stiff and unrealistic style of the early (archaic) period gradually give way to the more elegant representations of the classical era. Silver was the primary metal used for coin production right down to the tiniest denominations which were inconveniently small to use. Silver was to Athens what gold was to Persia, the backbone of the finance of the state, and, together of course with the tribute of the allies, the source whence came the plentiful wealth which Athens used for great building-works at home and for expeditions abroad. The Athenian mint, with its plentiful supplies of silver from the mines of Laurion, had produced prodigious quantities of tetradrachms from circa 449 BCE. Much of this wealth was used to finance grandiose building schemes in the city such as the Parthenon, but after 431 BCE ever-increasing sums were required to defray the costs of war. The ordinary silver coinage of Athens fromis almost unvaried. By the former date a head of Athena and an owl of fixed and conventional archaic type had been adopted for the coin. The olive-wreath which adorns the helmet of the goddess seems to have been adopted during the glow of triumph after Marathon. At the end of the century there were certain issues of gold coins. But the great mass of the coinage was in silver. The Athenians obtained silver in abundance from the mines of Laurium and those of Thrace, and it was part of Athenian policy to circulate the coins as widely as possible, and to make them the standard currency of the Aegean.

"Octagonal Panama Pacific Commemorative $50 Gold Coin" (1915) (#CRCO00018)
Five Panama–Pacific commemorative coins were produced in connection with the 1915 Panama–Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. Struck at that city's mint, the issue included round and octagonal $50 pieces. Excepting modern bullion coins, these two gold pieces are the highest denomination ever issued and the largest coins ever struck by the United States Mint. The octagonal $50 piece is the only U.S. coin to be issued that is not round. The coins were vended at the Exposition by prominent numismatist Farran Zerbe. They did not sell well, and many of each denomination were returned for melting. Only a few hundred of each of the $50 pieces were distributed, making them the lowest-mintage commemorative coins.

1995 Lincoln Cent Double Die Obverse, NGC MS66 Red (#CRCO00001)
The 1995 Double Die Obverse is a result of a Class V doubleing, or "pivoted hub dubbling".

The pivot point on the 1995 double die is close to the date, whereas much doubleing can be seen on the areas furthest from the date. Read more
"Silver Tyre Shekel Coin" (#CRCO00028)
-Tyrian shekels, tetradrachms, or tetradrachms were coins of Tyre, which in the Roman Empire took on an unusual role as the medium of payment for the Temple tax in Jerusalem, and subsequently gained notoriety as a likely mode of payment for Judas Iscariot. -Scholars generally accept that the Tyrian shekel was the mode of currency used in the infamous transaction of the thirty pieces of Judas paid to Judas to betray Christ. The thirty pieces are mentioned again when Judas returned the money to the chief priests after being overcome with remorse. -In the latest standard, which was also the one used for the temple tax, the coins bore the likeness of the Phoenician god Melqart or Baal, accepted as the Olympian Heracles by the Greeks and derided as Beelzebub by Jews in the time of the Seleucids, wearing the laurel reflecting his role in the Tyrian games and the ancient Olympic Games.

"1793 WREATH 1C, VINE AND BARS EDGE MS62 Brown" (#CRCO00015)
1793 WREATH 1C, VINE AND BARS EDGE MS62 Brown Grading Service: NGC SKU: 125899 Cert Number: 4077085024 NGC Population: 1** NGC Graded Higher: 12** After public outcry over the Chain Cent, the Philadelphia Mint adopted the now-familiar Wreath design in April, 1793. Although examples are now among the most popular of all large Cents in the numismatic market, the type also proved unpopular with the contemporary public and was replaced before year's end. The Wreath Cent, therefore, is desirable as a one-year type. It is also a rare issue with just 63,353 pieces struck. One of the most significant and eagerly sought die marriages of the 1793 Wreath Cent is NC-3 - the Strawberry Leaf variety - of which only four examples are known. Read more

The way in which the newly declared nation, the United States of America, displayed its sovereignty to the international community was to issue the minting of this 1776 pewter dollar. Further solidifying the 1776 pewter dollar’s place in the birth of a nation was that founding father Benjamin Franklin had a hand in its design, giving suggestions to the primary designer, Elisha Gallaudet.
