Greetings NCC Members and Guests-
The decision was recently released that Harriet Tubman has been chosen to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. An amazing turn considering that Tubman was an abolitionist who helped free slaves and Andrew Jackson was a slaveholder himself.
Not sure how many of you may have gotten on of the gold Mercury dimes that recently went on sale. 120,000 sold out within a short time. These commemorative gold coins help celebrate the 100th anniversary of the release of the Mercury dime in 1916. Later this year, the Standing Liberty quarter and Walking Liberty half will also be released in gold. These two coins were also first issued for circulation in 1916. The price of these will be more prohibitive given the bigger size. A set of these are sure to be a stunning site though. These coins are always likely to have a legion of collectors continue to follow them given the timeless beauty of the designs, especially when compared with the lackluster designs of past presidents we have now. As always, have fun with your hobby.
