CoinWeek editor Charles Morgan sits down with Great American Coin Hunt organizer Rob Oberth to discuss the success of the event and its implications for the hobby in this episode of the NLG Award-winning CoinWeek Podcast, brought to you by PCGS.

Rob tells how the effort came together and how he as surprised as we are that the idea grew into a grassroots effort to promote coin collecting as dealers and collectors pitched in to seed our circulating coins with collectible coins you don’t often encounter in change any more.

The coup de gras, Rob says, was the United States Mint’s announcement that it would participate by circulating millions of America the Beautiful quarter dollars struck at the West Point Mint.

Listen to learn more about the Great American Coin Hunt and find out whether Rob plans to bring it back in 2020.
