Do you guys go to coin shows or conventions ?
Posté le : 15-05-2020, 13h27 dans Numismatic questions

The local coin club in my town hosts a monthly show with about 20-30 dealers. I try to go each month and pick up a small amount of coins and banknotes I want. There is also larger yearly show I attend that has more dealers. • I like the variety the dealers have - there is something for everyone. and it's nice to deal face-to-face with people rather than through the internet. Also, in the age of declining brick-and-mortar stores, it's one of the few ways to see and touch the coins and banknotes you want up close.

Cleaning products and other essentials - like toilet paper and facial tissue - are hard to find in the stores too. • It seems common sense is winning out at the moment. Our leaders are encouraging and legislating "Self-isolation," so most sports and public events like concerts have canceled and most work places have implemented a work from home schedule. • I am sure things will return to normal once medical science catches up to this virus.

Citation: "Cerulean"​As others have already pointed out, US coins only circulate in one direction.

If the Eurozone didn't have the 2c, 50c, 1euro and 2euro coins, you'd see a lot more of the others. • ​ • ​Approximately half of the world's coins are American. • ​ • ​Two thirds of USD cash is in other countries. • ​ • ​The USA has been slower to adopt cashless technology. Politically, "going cashless" is viewed as discrimination against the poor.​Part of going cashless - where people feel it is discriminatory against the poor - is the fees charged by the banks and the credit card companies to use debit and credit cards. • I think the US should produce 10C, 25C, 50C, $1 and $2 coins. Maybe even a $5 coin. Ditch the 1C and 5C coins and $1 and $2 bills.

Shipping Coins from USA, Help Needed
Posté le : 26-02-2020, 17h28 dans Free discussion

A lot will depend on how many coins you send and where you are sending them to. Many countries have less than reliable mail service, unfortunately; but all packages run the risk of being stolen, damaged or confiscated. Check with your swap partner on their wants, some won't swap without certified mail. • If the coins have a high value, certified or registered mail with a customs form is best, even with the higher cost. That is your best bet to be compensated if the coins are lost or stolen. • When filling out a customers form, hobby supplies usually works, or you can flat out lie. • The cheapest option is to put the coins securely between two pieces of cardboard (thickness depends on your want) and mail in a simple envelope. Try to hide the coins so they are not easily detectable by postal workers or others. This is also the riskiest way to send, because you have no protections, as you would with registered mail. • I think the way most members here are going[...]

Let's design a currency!
Posté le : 13-11-2019, 14h53 dans Free discussion

I think all coins and notes would be in the form of a credit card - 50 x 76 mm and very thin, so you could keep them in your wallet, purse or satchel; solid, but flexible and most likely made of plastic or a new kind of metal or material that resembles the look and feel of today's modern credit cards. These coins/banknotes are meant to be easily exchangeable - you don't reuse it as a credit card, but as a coin/banknote. If I buy something for $1, I give the card to the person/machine I am getting the product from, and they keep the coin/banknote. • The denomination would be part of the design, which I will leave up to you.

When we were kids, and for at least a generation before me, we'd put coins on the railroad tracks and let the trains flatten and elongate them.

I am sure it's not worth a quarter now, but was never worth more than a quarter at the time it was flattened/elongated. • Most of the coins people elongated were common currency when they were elongated, either through trains or machines or other methods. I am betting those indian head pennies were common coinage when they were flattened/elongated. • Those flattened penny machines are at every tourist/recreation spot in the USA as a cheap souvenir, so unless you're willing to drop a valuable coin in there, it's just a penny. • No one seems to complain about coin damage from the artists who cut out the designs for coins to make jewelry. &bul[...]

Citation: "Moneytane"​Yes but very few people would be dumb enough to think some worthless coins of a "Stan" country would contain precious metals. The coins look cheap and probably are cheap and worth 2 rubleniks or whatever! • ​ • ​Then again, when the $1 and $2 coins came out here (New Zealand) in early 1991, some news reporters called them "Gold coins" and some of the low IQ fraternity believed they had real gold in them and were trying to sell the coins aas real gold to dealers (Actually aluminium brass).

Is it just to rob gullible people by getting them to pay for the over-priced trinkets?​Are they releasing pennies into circulation for 2018 and 2019? I have seen no references to whether pennies are being released into circulation.

Your banknote with a story behind it (poignant)

My first silver certificate (and second and third) came from my paper route when I was 11. I was doing my monthly collections for the $1.40 newspaper and the customer gave me 2 $1 bills. One was like nothing I had ever seen (the 25-year-old silver certificate) and asked him if it was legitimate. When he told me what it was, I told him I couldn't accept it, but he insisted. • I still have the note to this day, even though I haven't talked to the man since I quit paper route. He ended up giving me at least two more silver certificates before quitting the route.

Does your post office allow you to send coins?
Posté le : 23-02-2019, 22h02 dans Numismatic questions

At my local post office in the US, I either use the automated kiosk, so I can avoid talking to the clerks, or I don't tell them it's coins. I've used photos, hobby supplies and gifts, rather than coins. Sometimes, they make me use a customs form, and sometimes they don't. • I try to use a regular envelope and not a padded one, as the padded ones are now considered packages and cost more to send. I wrap the coins in paper or foil and sandwich them between cardboard so you can't tell there are coins. • In all my swaps, I have had no problems with people receiving my coins, including a swap or two to Australia.

Coins not delivered
Posté le : 20-02-2019, 15h40 dans Swaps and trades

I swapped with a member whose coins to me were lost in the mail. I received a torn and empty envelope from the post office. The member was gracious enough to replace the coins, and again, I received an envelope that was torn open. But, he secured the coins to the inside of the envelope, so when it was torn, the coins did not fall out. • I think the torn envelope was a result of the post office machines ripping the envelopes during the processing and not theft by an employee. I wrap the coins so they are flat and don't rattle, and then tape them to the inside of the envelope so they don't fall out if the envelope rips. I suggest this for all senders.

"In all this time, I have never used Colnect for swapping, nor have I ever used their Marketplace." = Cerulean • I use Colnect to swap, but it is much more difficult to swap there because there is no inherent swap mechanism like we have here. I have to identify the coins/banknotes I want and so does the other person and detail them in an email, rather than just clicking a button. Then we have to agree to the swap. This makes it much harder. • The only way I feel Colnect is superior is you can see the wish list of other people. Here, I can only see what coins someone wants to swap, but not what they want. This would be an advantage if I had a coin and could see who wants to get that coin.

I only find them in banks - you have to ask the clerk for them - and occasionally in the spare change jar at my local gas station. Someone pays with them, but they don't fit in the register's change machine, so the cashier's set them aside. • The post office used to have them in the automated stamp machine, but those machines were eliminated long ago. But if you paid for a book of stamps with a $20, your change came back in dollar coins, SBA and Sacagewas. • There is no metro where I live, so I can't take advantage of those change machines.

What does a bottle of soda in South Africa sell for? 1 Rand, 2 Rand? • What does a bottle of soda sell for in Euros in Milan, Munich or Amsterdam? • What can you buy for 1 Bhat in Thailand? • Right now, $10 US is equal to 1095.77 Yen in Japan, if the exchange calculators are correct. But what can I buy with that money and is that considered a lot of money or a little? • That is what fascinates me about the exchange rate and money's value in other countries.

Posté le : 17-04-2018, 20h15 dans Free discussion

I was 7 or 8 and accompanying my mom to the bank so she could do some banking. I noticed a stack of huge coins at the cashier's window. I asked mom if I could have one, having never seen one before. She agreed. • Turns out the coin was an Eisenhower dollar, which would soon be out of circulation. After that, I started getting coins as Christmas and Easter presents from my mom and dad. I also raided the cash register at my dad's store for old wheat pennies, nickels and silver dimes and quarters. Got quite a few old coins that way. • Then, my aunts started giving me extra Canadian and German coins from their own collections, but I didn't get serious into world coins until my wife gave me a 50 coins from 50 nations set as a Christmas present a few years back. • After that, I found Numista and have more than quadrupled my nations thanks to the many excellent members here.

Posté le : 26-02-2018, 15h16 dans Free discussion

I really don't like it. I am not worried about values, because numerous previous forum post have proven value is subjective. • But now they've added a new 'swap category' that wiped out the condition of the coin to be swapped. Plus, I am not sure if I am supposed to count the coin as a collection coin or a swap coin. For example, if I have two 1963 Denmark two kroner coins, but want to swap one, do I put 2 in my collection spot and 1 in my swap spot, or 1 in each spot. I don't want to mis-represent to other collectors and potential swap partners my collection or swap offerings and their values. • In the long run, this might be a case of getting used to the new changes and growing to love them, but they are inconvenient in the short run, especially since I am going to have to go through my swap list and add the condition to each one. Thankfully I have a short swap list. I can't imagine what those members with large swap lists will do.

How to ship coins from USA to Europe?
Posté le : 04-01-2018, 15h42 dans Free discussion

Phil is right. The US Postal Service clerks in my town have told me they won't allow me to mail 'coins,' 'currency' or 'money,' so what I do is either use the automated machine or tell the clerk the package contains other items, such as hobby supplies, pictures, and in one instance, a compact disc. I haven't had any trouble shipping coins using this method. • If you package the items so they are secure and cannot be detected or identified, that makes it easier. Most collectors I've talked to and heard from on this site put their coins in holders and secure them between solid sheets of cardboard or paper, so they don't rattle or can be felt through the envelope. • I hope this helps.

My wife was nice enough to buy me both sets of Canadian 2017 coins as an early birthday present. • Just so you know, I am using this picture without permission. I know how much Numista frowns on this, but it's easier than using my own picture.

I have never seen a groove that deep from a rolling machine. I suspect someone did some independent tool and die work on for fun on this coin.

how many different coins might be in the world?
Posté le : 05-05-2017, 15h16 dans Free discussion

Citation: "kommodore"​Hey, • ​I was wondering, how many different coins might be in the world, I mean since the beginning of coins until now? • ​Don't know but I heard there's like 1 million different roman coins, and the rest might also be 1 million. • ​So I will assume 2 million different coins struck since the first coin. • ​What do you think?​Do you mean different types of KM#s, or do you mean the total number of coins produced?

Pay the message forward!

I just put this note into the Mountain Dew vending machine at my workplace in Columbus, Ohio. • Keeping with ngdawa's theme, I wrote 'thank you' on it.

Citation: "neilithic"​I think the value they give is more the insurance value rather than the purchase price. The police gave the name of the jeweler and said to take it to him to see if he would buy it. If not I could at least get a certificate of appraisal. • ​ • ​I think lego is only worth it as an investment if you keep the sets in the box. But judging from the ankle-deep pile of lego on his bedroom, I doubt that would happen.We all have/had a fortune in toys that we pulled out of the box and made worthless, except for the happiness those toys brought us.​

I don't know if disc golfing can be considered a hobby, but that is what I am into now, besides coin and banknote collecting. It's fun, gets me out of the house for a couple hours and is a pretty good, low-impact workout. Plus I get to hang out with friends each week.

While I actively collect banknotes and have traded with many people on this site, I don't mind Numista being coins only. Sometimes it's just easier to accept things for what they are. Numista is a coin site, and a great one. I have learned a lot and expanded my coin collection greatly here. I am thrilled with it as it is.

World coins chat: Faroe Islands
Posté le : 31-01-2017, 14h10 dans Free discussion

"During World War 2 the British minted Danish coin designs without mint and privy marks for exclusive use on the Faroe Islands. These Faroese issues from 1941 were not backed by Denmark which was occupied by Germany, but instead linked to the pre-war exchange rate between Kroner and Sterling which had been equal to 22.4Kr/£ since 1933. Older Danish banknotes were overstamped so that they became Faroese." • Can you show examples of the Faroese issues and the Denmark issues, so people can see the difference? I think that would help people looking for these rare coins find them easier and not buy Denmark issues by mistake. • Thanks, • John

Micronesia and Northern Mariana Islands
Posté le : 16-11-2016, 13h55 dans Numista coin catalogue

The circulating currency in these two territories is the US Dollar, just like the circulating currency in French Guiana is the Euro. On the map, French Guiana is lit up when the member has French coins. The Azores and Madiera Islands are lit up for Portugal for the same reason. Yes, if those members have coins from those territories, their spot on the map will reflect that. • All I am asking for is consistency. Light up the Mariana Islands and Micronesia for members who have the US. It counts against these two territories because they don't have coins of their own, only tokens, according the countries list.

Coin Collecting
Posté le : 27-08-2016, 16h11 dans Swaps and trades

Finding lots of countries is definitely difficult. One tip is to find dealers or sellers who have bulk bins - but sell coins individually - then scour through them looking for the countries you want. You can find some rare countries in there for cheap - I found a French Indochina, French Afars and isaas and others this way. • Also find a world coin dealer who sells coins individually and find his bargain coins. I have increased my country total that way by spending only $1 to $5 per coin. • Another tip is to try and swap with members on this site.

It's a very nice community and there are many treasures to be found here. • Put your coins - even your common ones - on your swap list, because you never know what people are looking for - many people want coins by year, so your common coin could fulfill someone's need. • All that being said, for some countries, you will have to[...]

If denied swaps are removed, some people might continue to try and make swaps with people who already denied them. And you know there are members who will do that. • Nobody wants that. • Maybe denied swaps can be minimalized or placed in the folder so they cannot be so prominently viewed, but they should not be removed.

Maybe you should be a little more specific on the coins you need. Your post doesn't give any indication of the specific coins you need.

I agree. This will help to better identify the coins to be swapped without having to go on a wild goose chase.

[résolu] Should I clean the coin?
Posté le : 14-10-2015, 1h56 dans Coin identifications and valuations

Citation: "Fluke"​Leave it, if you clean it all numismatic value will be lost. • ​ • ​You should never clean a coin unless it is unidentifiable, for example covered in verdigris, the green cancer.If I have a coin with verdigris, what is the best way to remove it without damaging the coin or ruining its value. I picked up a nice Argentine coin in a bulk swap, but there is a big verdigris spot on it. Any suggestions or thoughts? • Thanks, • John​

Whoo, a vote for Disc Golf, a sport I was turned onto last year and really enjoy. Good to know there are other enthusiasts out there.

International shipping advice?
Posté le : 27-09-2015, 19h45 dans Swaps and trades

My advice is to make sure the postal clerk gets the country code correct. My first international shipment was supposed to go to Israel, but the clerk marked Ireland on the shipping label. So instead of 1-2 weeks, it took more than 1 month for the coins to arrive. • I just completed a swap with a member in the Netherlands that took 1 week.

Redesigning US coinage
Posté le : 19-09-2015, 1h35 dans Free discussion

How about a square or non-round shaped coin? A nice rounded-edged triangle would be different. • Plus, we went to smaller coins, because, as you said, people didn't like the larger dollar coins. And we went to bills because as goods became more expensive, people didn't want pockets full of change. • I don't agree that the new dollar coins are hated, I just think people view them as a novelty or a collectible. If the US were to eliminate the $1 note, I think the $1 coins would be more readily used in daily circulation. Not marketing them as commemorative would probably help that. • I still think a little variety in size would help too. Four coins between 22 and 26 MM is not very different. • It would be fun to see though, if the US Government had enough guts to make a change.
