21 22 Part I: Making Heads and Tails out of Coin Collecting Figure 2-3: Silver Certificates. Art bars Silver popped up again in the early 1970s when 1-ounce silver art bars (such as those shown in Figure 2-4) became the rage. Art bars are thin, rectangular silver bars with polished surfaces and designs that commemorate just about everything imaginable — weddings, birthdays, a new year, Thanksgiving, trains, hearts, cats, you name it. Mintages were limited, unusual varieties appeared, and some rather deliberate errors showed up.

Would you? Deciding What to Collect Because money is a limiting factor, no matter how much of it you have, figure out how much you want to budget for your collection, and then decide where to spend it. Here are some suggestions for interesting and challenging ways to collect coins: ߜ Denomination: Try putting together a complete set of all the different denominations issued by the United States. Start with the coins in circulation and then include obsolete coins like a half cent, a three-cent piece, a 20-cent piece — coins that most people have never heard of.

You may find and be able to afford every date in the series except for the extremely rare 1894-S — you’ll need $1,000,000, or more for a nice one! On the other hand, there are several series that you can complete without breaking the bank. If you can’t afford the Barber dime set, try the Barber half dollars instead. The coins are bigger and every date and mintmark in the set is affordable. Keep in mind that until recently, coins minted in Philadelphia had no mintmark. ߜ Year: Many people try to buy every coin issued in the year of their birth.
