Our sixth episode of CoinWeek’s Cool Coins! for 2016 includes over four million dollars’ worth of amazing numismatic items.

We stop by our friends at Atlas Numismatics and ask James Ricks to show us a very special Swiss 100 Franc gold coin.

Julian Leidman has an amazing 1806 half dollar in his case. This coin is so well-struck and so well-preserved that this Overton-123 might be the finest 1806 half dollar in the world.

Next up, Douglas Winter. Doug is known for being one of the foremost classic U.S. gold dealers in the country. He shows us a trio of rare S-mint gold coins recovered from the SS Central America shipwreck.

Ever heard of the Brussels Hoard? We stop by the London Coin Galleries booth and discuss this $3 million hoard that was found in a cellar at the beginning of the last century.

Like these segments? Our next Cool Coins! will blow you away! Our next episode is the 50th of the series and we’ve pulled out all the stops.

Q. David Bowers, Ira Goldberg, Kevin Lipton and more — Cool Coins! 50. Coming in September…
