This week on the CoinWeek Podcast, we get into the weeds about numismatic research and how today’s numismatists are undoing years of faulty understandings of some of America’s most important coins.

David McCarthy is our guest today.

David stunned the hobby after he revealed his research that points to a fascinating origin story of the Type 2 Nova Constelallatio Quint – a coin that his firm Kagin’s paid over a million dollars for at auction.

Is this America’s first attempt at a national coin? David has the answers next on the CoinWeek podcast.
