2017 Year in Review 4K Video – The Year’s Top Coin Stories

CoinWeek takes a look back at 2017 and picks the five most consequential numismatic news stories of the year. Big coins sold this year, but a surprising and humble coin that you might find in your pocket change took precedence over the sale of a multi-million dollar rarity. 106 years marked the life of one of the hobby’s most significant collectors; we discuss the passing of Eric P. Newman. The election of Donald J. Trump put in play a whole host of settled issues. Will money be the next battleground in the culture wars?  German museum officials awoke to an unpleasant surprise in March, when a 4.5-million-dollar gold coin was stolen in the middle of the night. Finally, we take a look at the three big factors that led to a sharp decline in bullion coins.

It’s been a pleasure serving the numismatic community and being an independent voice for coin collectors. We look forward to upping our game in 2018 and we thank you for your continued support.
