U.S. coins
Posté le : 12-03-2020, 2h41 dans Free discussion

Yes, the US Mint produces way too many coins - but only because it has to. • Our law says the mint must produce enough coins to meet consumer demand. The consumers are the banks who order the coins from the Federal Reserve banks. The problem is that the public gets our coins in change from stors but many of us don't spend them very often. Many people dump the coins in jars or drawers or the garbage. They just can't be bothered with them. So every year the min produces coins to replace coins that aren't missing, they're just hiding. It's a huge waste of resources especially for our one- and five-cent coins which cost more to mint than their face value. (Look up seignorage for more details.) • Also, the US Congress has ordered many long-running coin programs (especially dollar coins, etc) that the public rarely use but the mint is forced to produce. There are now hundreds of millions of dollar coins stockpiled in banks. This happened with our Susan B Anthony dollar coins to[...]

I tried to sell on r/coins4sale a couple times but gave up for all the trolls... • First you create a reddit account • Second you create account on an image website • Third you photograph the coin / coins with your name and date • Fourth you post the images to the image website • Fifth you list your coin / coins along with the link to the images • Then you wade through the trolls who mock your coins or try to lowball your prices etc. • The reddit mods are good about stomping trolls but it's a lot of work. Even if you find a buyer you have to arrange payment and shipping with no guarantees on getting paid even if and when the buyer gets the coin / coins. • People do sell coins on reddit every day so it's a real option, but be prepared for the time and energy it will take. And always proceeed with caution - you will get scammed if you're not careful and there are no recourses. • PS: postal insurance doesn't always cover coins[...]

Citation: "Cerulean"​I have never been able to use the kiosk for international mail, even letters.​This is very strange - I *only* use the kiosk for international post - the clerks were robbing me blind for awhile charging me parcel rate on every letter I sent! • Once I switched to the kiosk I've never paid parcel rate again, and I used the same machine for 20+ international letters. I just sent two heavy letters to the UK last week... • Maybe ask a clerk to help you with the kiosk? Maybe it's interface is wonky? Take another look - might be missing a button?

Very true! I found thisproblem in the US for the last few years. • Any international mail I send the postal clerk asks what's inside. • If I say "letter" - OK, no problem. • If I say "coins" or "gift" - they demad a customs form. • To "beat the system" I send a few coins in each letter. • On big swaps I might send two or three letters. • It's $1.15 per letter but no forms or questions. • I also use a greeting card and envelope for packaging. • That gives the coins some protection. So far so good!

Does nobody read what a potential trading partner is looking for?
Posté le : 28-01-2020, 17h25 dans Swaps and trades

Sad but true: • When I started here I only listed coins in my personal collection. I just wanted a nice catalog of my coins for my reference. (Numista has the best catalog on the Internet.) • I wasn't looking for swaps so I didn't list any coins for exchange. Even so, in the first month I got a dozen swap requests - and everybody wanted my silver...! • So I deleted every coin in my collection, and listed some coins for swap. The first couple months were rough. The vultures were hovering around me and it was a lot of work wading through all the scammy swap offers. • Eventually, the vultures moved on to other prey and I have since made a couple dozen very nice swaps. • I'm guessing that this happens to everybody on here. Stick with it - the good swappers are out there and soon you'll mke some good swaps and some good friends.

Looks like a mint error but I'm not an expert. • PS: I took a tour of the Denver Mint a couple years ago. The tour guide described the security measures that mint employees go through every day. He said that the metal detectors are so sensitive that they can identify the faintest trace of metal. As an example, he mentioned an employees who tried to sneak out a coin between his toes in a steel-toe boot but the metal detector spotted it. The guy went to jail. So I know that employees try to sneak coins out but I doubt very many sneak out anymore...

Selling Coins in Swap List?
Posté le : 21-01-2020, 14h43 dans Free discussion

Hi - • I've been on numista for awhile now, made some really good swaps, and generally have a pretty good time. I really like the coin catalogue and rely on that almost every day for sorting my collection. This is why I use numista in the first place... • I started swapping coins here on a lark. I had a few hundred coins listed in my personal collection and started getting requests for them. At first I ignored the requests (I didn't have anything listed for exhange, just my personal collection), but then I gave it a try... Today I have about a thousand coins in my swap list and get a lot of requests, but it can be hard to negotiate a fair swap, pick the coins from my collection, pack everything, mail everything, and wait for the coins or banknotes in return. You know the drill, we've all done this. So even though I enjoy swapping, I just can't do it anymore. • So my question: has anyone here ever just sold off all the coins in their swap list? What's the best way t[...]

We'll need a better picture please. • In most cases, when a coin shows evidence of a different denomination it is called PMD. That's post-mint-damage. Someone put two coins together in a vise and squeeze them together. That pushes the designs into each other. But without a better photo it's very hard to see what hapened to your coin...

Has value of Canadian small cents (1937-2012) increased since recall/melting?
Posté le : 15-11-2019, 20h01 dans Numismatic questions

For most of these issues there are millions upon millions of coins minted. I doubt there will ever be a shortage of any date / variety to drive up value. Only coins in high-grade sem to hold much value. • Like many collectors, I saved a few thousand Canadian cents after 2012. But, for the reason stated above (oversupply) I whittled my stash down to a couple hundred coins in the last few months. I kept mostly George VI cents and nickels. • I doubt that the QEII coins will ever be worth more than melt. Same is true of US cents. Wheatbacks (1909-1958) have some value, but most are just worth 2 cents each. And with few exceptions, the Memorial cents (1959 - present) are a total disaster. Very few collectible dates or varieties in there, massive volume available even in high grade. • So, collect the Canadian small cents if you like them, but they're not a big investment.

USPS Complaint Thread - Pricing and Service

@Johnspa • I completely agree... too much discretion to the clerks and no chain of command if I object to a policy. I've tried talking to the postmaster but he said "it's in the computer". I said, it's just an envelope, not a parcel... He told me to try FedEx. • One time, a couple weeks ago, I refused to pay what they asked. Then I went to the self check-out machine (whatever it's called) and selected all the right options. Saved 3 bucks and my "package" got delivered just fine a few days later.

Thanks for the pics... I don't see any rare dates or varieties, and the coins all appear to be in average, circulated condition so I don't think the coins are "valuable" in that sense. • But I think you should hold onto them. You might not want them now, but you might change your mind in a few years. • Or, if you want to trade or swap them, you can list the coins on this website. Most members want to swap for other coins so I don't know if anyone would offer a silver bar. • I hope that helps!

Fun at the Goodwill
Posté le : 12-03-2019, 18h24 dans Free discussion

I wouldn't touch those auctions with a 10 foot pole. Something fishy. Counterfeit / fake coins? Shill bidding? • You're better off going to the local Goodwill and look at the coins before you buy them. Or stick with ebay if you like auctions?

2$50 Escudos meaning
Posté le : 12-03-2019, 4h02 dans Numismatic questions

@ngdawa - I agree completely! Every time we move toward a uniform system we lose a lot of history. Even though uniform systems serve a real purpose we must balance that with preservation. It's called "cultural ecology" and this is a great example. For example, there are many measuring systems around the world besides SI and other calendars besides the Gregorian etc etc. We should always think twice before replacing our heritage. • PS: I have a few of the "2$50" escudos and I kept them just because of that design!

@Myeackle got it right. I think Numista is a great format for banknotes.

Mexico 10 Pesos Silver?
Posté le : 01-03-2019, 14h12 dans Coin identifications and valuations

I was checking the catalog and see that the Mexico 10-peso coin from 1992 - 1995 is listed as having a 0.925 silver center. But the same page doesn't list a Bullion Value for the coin. Am I reading this wrong? • https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces590.html

Banknotes Catalog??
Posté le : 25-02-2019, 14h03 dans Banknotes

Thanks for the tips - those other websites have good resources, but I really like the system here at Numista. It's very intuitive to a new user like me. I was going to add all my banknotes to my list but then realized I can't! Ooops.

Careful with the English notes. Most of the old 5 and 10 pounders have been withdrawn. Looks like your notes are from Series D. They are still collectible but the value varies by condition. Click HERE for more info. • Date last issued: 1992£10 Series D (pictorial series) • Date first issued: 20 February 1975 • Date ceased to be legal tender: 20 May 1994 • Colour: Predominantly brown • Size: 5 7/8" x 3 5/16" (151mm x 85mm) • Design: Harry Eccleston.

Correct me if I'm wrong (again), but aren't the BWI$ and EC$ coinage very similar in design, size, material etc? • That's what made me wonder if the BWI$ coins still circulate.

I would send more coins - that way you don't have to feel bad or worry about negative feedback. • BTW: if the second batch gets lost in the mail then you know something is fishy. • Good luck!

[résolu] Too good to be true
Posté le : 17-02-2019, 1h05 dans Free discussion

God job you reported him - I used to do that but it's like having a full-time job. There are so many sellers and buyers out there I stopped using ebay... • That's why I like forums like numista to swap coins. I can read some feedback and forum posts and have a convo before settling down to trade. Make me feel a little better.

Coin Shows - Rant warning
Posté le : 17-02-2019, 0h59 dans Free discussion

I agree with that rant - and more. The town I live in used to have a couple greats shops and annual shows. But now the best shops are closed and the shows don't come around anymore (venues and city parking are too expensive). • Now I'm left with a couple low-life "gold and silver" shops that do exactly what the OP said: bad mouth customers and lie through their rotten teeth. Most of their sellers are out-of-towners who don't know what they have (I've eavesdropped on the convos) and the buyers get the snowjobs. I still windowshop but haven't bought anything in some time. Don't even get me started on ebay. I know there are some fine sellers out there but I can't wade through the swamp to find them. • Most of my stuff comes from other members on forums like Numista. Trading is the best way to get new material for me.

Thanks - this catalog is great!

I just want to say THANKS to everyone at Numista for making such a great catalog and forum. I've been lurking for awhile and use the catalog all the time to ID my coins. This is a great resource!

Congrats silver_smith! That sounds like quite a haul. I wish I could find a big lot like that. • PS: I like the euro and UK coins but couldn't go face value. Maybe you do swaps?
