CoinWeek Podcast #36: Donn Pearlman talks 1913 Nickels, Numismatic Writing, and a Hobby in Transition

Few in the coin industry have been as successful in bringing mainstream attention to numismatics as has Donn Pearlman, former ANA Governor, and 2015 Farran Zerbe Award winner. Donn is the press agent for PNG, Heritage Auctions, the ANA, and a number of other high profile industry clients. He has also been at the center of a number of the hobby’s headlining stories for the decades. In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, Charles asks Donn about his involvement in the recovery of the Walton 1913 nickel, seeks Donn’s opinion about the state of numismatic journalism, and ponders whether structural changes to the industry that took place decades ago have led to the bifurcated coin market that we see today.
