CoinWeek kicks off the new year with a bang with our first episode of Cool Coins! for 2016!
In this video, we get to see the finest business strike 1907 Saint-Gaudens $20 double eagle, a circulated Barber half dollar recovered after the sinking of RMS Titanic, a recently discovered 1919 Winged Liberty dime DDO, and one of the finest known Humbert $20 gold coins from the California Gold Rush! We get into the backstory behind the coins, why an MS69 Saint does not compare to an MS69 Silver Eagle, and why Congress might have been a little distracting in the 1850s when it came to establishing a new branch mint in gold rich San Francisco.
