    CoinWeek Podcast: Ultra-Modern Coins Take Over

    CoinWeek Podcast: Ultra-Modern Coins Take Over

    This week on the coinweek podcast we are going to have a lively, interesting, and provocative conversation with Chang Bullock and Orlando Lorenzana of CIT, where we talk about how ultra-modern coins have taken over the contemporary coin market and how CIT’s innovations in color and coin minting technology are changing the game for private and sovereign mints. You cannot walk away from this podcast without learning something about the way minting has changed and we hope it will give you a clearer picture of where we are heading.

    CoinWeek Podcast #154: Beware the Ides of March

    CoinWeek Podcast #154: Beware the Ides of March

    While the particulars of the Roman calendar, with its demarcation of Nones, Ides, and Kalends, are now largely forgotten by those not ensconced in academia, one date, immortalized by a history changing bloody coup and popularized by a famous bard from Stratford-Upon-Avon, remains in the collective consciousness of most people - and carries with it an ominous warning, BEWARE!

    In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, CoinWeek Ancients writer Mike Markowitz lays down his Pugio and tells you the gripping story of the death of Julius Caeser and its impact on coins.

    CoinWeek Podcast #152: Completing a DANSCO 7070

    CoinWeek Podcast #152: Completing a DANSCO 7070

    Charles Morgan and Chris Bulfinch start off this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast discussing the recent high price paid for a coin in a very early PCGS holder and issues surrounding the potential redesign of U.S. Currency.

    After that, Charles and Chris break down everything you need to know about completing the DANSCO 7070 coin album. The DANSCO 7070, also known as the United States Type album, collects one example of most major types of U.S. coins struck from 1800 onward.

    This was a deceptively difficult album for most collectors to put together, but it's made even more difficult considering most higher-end classic U.S. coins are now encapsulated in certified holders.

    Charles and Chris believe that spectacular coins should stay protected in encapsulated holders, but a certain type of coin makes a perfect candidate for a DANSCO album.

    If you’ve ever wanted to complete a DANSCO 7070 album, this episode is for you!

    CoinWeek Podcast #151: Collecting Modern U.S. Coins From Change

    CoinWeek Podcast #151: Collecting Modern U.S. Coins From Change

    Charles Morgan and Chris Bulfinch start off this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast with a discussion of the quick sellout of the 2021-W American Silver Eagle Proof Coin (the one with the final Mercanti reverse) and talk about how the issue marks the end of an era for the world's most popular bullion coin.

    After that, Charles and Chris break down everything you need to know about putting together a collection of modern U.S. coins from change.

    Charles gives his tested strategies for being circulating coins in bulk from your bank at face value and building a collection of face value coins. We talk about dump banks, coin folders, coin tubes, which denominations are most likely to yield some silver coinage (you won't find much these days), and finally, Charles shares a crazy story about how one of his friends had a source to buy $1,000 mixed-date Eisenhower Dollar bags at face and would sometimes find Silver Eagles, Morgan and Peace dollars!

    If you are a budget collector, this episode is for you!

    CoinWeek Podcast #150: How R.S. Yeoman Changed the Coin Collecting Hobby Forever

    CoinWeek Podcast #150: How R.S. Yeoman Changed the Coin Collecting Hobby Forever

    In this week's episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, Charles Morgan talks to longtime Red Book editor Kenneth Bressett on the career and legacy of Red Book creator and coin board innovator R.S. Yeoman.

    Yeoman's ideas transformed the hobby from an academic pursuit to one with broad mainstream appeal. Whereas most numismatic books published before 1950 were printed in limited numbers, Yeoman's Red Book was an instant success and has gone on to sell tens of millions of copies and is updated annually. This year, we will see the publication of its 75th edition. 

    Bressett worked with Yeoman and probably knew him better than anyone in the industry and Charles asks him to share his insights into Yeoman's vision for the hobby and where Yeoman fits amongst the giants of twentieth-century numismatists. 

    Also in this episode, Charles and Chris Bullfinch discuss this week's U.S. Mint product offerings, take a quick look at the rise and fall of the Redditors' silver bullion play, and discuss how difficult it is to fill Dansco albums in this day and age.

Podcast review

Great Podcast, really enjoy the topics and learns great deal, please keep up the great work!

Long winded questions

Charles Morgan the announcer gets very interesting people on the podcast and then he asks them run-on-sentence questions that take most of the time. The guest simply listens to Charles lecture them when they are the expert and he is not.

Listen to it on morning drives

A lot of great content! I listen to it every morning on my way to work. It's not too long and too short. I would like to hear more about the different trade shows.
