CoinWeek Cool Coins! 2018: Episode 3: Japanese Commemorative WW1 Medal, 3 Error Cent, More…

CoinWeek Cool Coins! returns with our third episode of 2018!

In this episode, we span the globe and review historic coins and medals.

Rexford Goldbaum from Atlas Numismatics shows us a toned Japanese medal struck to commemorate the country’s naval victory over the Russian Empire. This interesting medal has an interesting pedigree and comes with its original box. Interested in more cool world coins and medals? Atlas Numismatics always carries a beautiful lineup of material in this area of the market. You should bookmark their website and check back often.

CoinWeek catches up with our friend John Agre. John has a gem 1743 British Crown. Coins of this issue feature a likeness of King George II and would have been money of the realm at a time of great change in the world.

Have you ever seen an 1801 cent with three errors on the reverse? Colonel Steven Ellsworth had one at his table and shows us why this affordable early copper is not quite what it seems.

Finally, we take a stop at Künker’s table and take a look at one of the European continent’s first bullion coins, a Three thaler from the 16th century. The piece is large and has a cool story that you won’t want to miss.
