Collecting and investing in rare coins at the upper levels of the hobby requires more than just money, it requires considerable amounts of knowledge, patience, and a great eye for quality.

In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we talk with Certified Acceptance Corporation (CAC) president John Albanese about a number of topics that will prove to be highly interesting to even the most seasoned numismatist.

Charles asks John to explain the grade of MS62, John proposes that the current grading system has too many grades, and over the course of this thirty-minute program Charles and John discuss the way the market is and what things could have been done better with the benefit of foresight had the major grading services understood what John and others have come to realize today about the shortcomings of the 70-point grading system.

It’s an enlightening and exciting conversation with one of the hobby’s most fluent and articulate market makers. You won’t want to miss it!

Even sophisticated collectors stand to benefit by having a second set of trained eyes look over prospective coins before making a purchase. In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we dig deep into the topic of auction representation and why professional numismatists have a major edge over collectors when it comes to evaluating and picking out the best coins.

We talk about the difference between "potluck" coins purchased online and coins that are bought only after careful examination. We discuss the limitations of coin photography (even great coin photography). We also cover the type of information a collector should ask for and share with a professional when its time to team up and build that great collection.

This is an important and often overlooked factor of collection building that we shine a light on this week.

Submitting coins for grading requires patience, a talent for recognizing quality coins, and some insight into how professional graders think.

In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, Editor Charles Morgan breaks down six tips that he thinks will help your submissions achieve better results, which in turn, will improve your bottom line.

Of course, tips alone cannot make coins better. The coins have to all "be there" in order to make the grade, but if you want to make sure your great coins get the respect they deserve when they are put in front of the industry's top experts, you need to set the stage for your coins to present in the best way possible.

Is it time to mix up things in the numismatic marketplace? 2014 ANA Numismatist of the Year Ron Guth thinks so. He's proposed a 100-point grading system to replace the 70-point system that coin collectors have used since the 1970s.

We reach out to ask him how his system works and why he thinks it would be an improvement for the hobby.

This week on the Coinweek Podcast, I am joined by Red book Editor Emeritus Ken Bressett.

Since the 1970s, Ken has helmed the most important book in the coin collecting hobby, the Red Book.

His writing and research and market knowledge has benefited generations of coin collectors and has had an immeasurable impact on the growth of the coin hobby.

Our conversation touches upon this, the shape of the market now versus then, and recaps some of Ken's most memorable moments as a numismatist.

A narrow decision in the United States Supreme Court will have major implications on the way we buy and sell things over the internet.

Former Congressman Jimmy Hayes joins us for this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast to talk about efforts that are underway right now in state legislatures across the country to pass new tax and regulatory framework to businesses that operate online.

As a lobbyist for the Industry Council of Tangible Assets, Hayes has been on the front line of issues that effect the rare coin and bullion market and his insights into this developing story should open your eyes to major changes that will likely come to pass in the numismatic marketplace.

Heidi Wastweet is an award-winning medallic artist. Over the course of her 30-year career, she has designed more than 1,000 coins, medals, and tokens, mostly for private mints.

From 2010 to 2018, Heidi sat on the CCAC, where she, along with other members of the art community and general public, deliberated on the direction of American coin and medal design. If you have bought a coin or medal from the U.S. Mint made within the past eight years, odds are that Heidi had a role to play in the design process.

What is the state of coin and medal design in America and what can be done to improve upon it?

I ask these questions and more, this week on the CoinWeek Podcast.

This week on the CoinWeek Podcast, former Coin World editor and head of ICTA’s Anti-Counterfeiting Taskforce Beth Deisher joins us to talk about the pernicious threat that counterfeit coins pose to the coin industry.

Counterfeit coins have been a fact of life since ancient times, but today’s counterfeiters operate sophisticated factories, have a global reach, and are more motivated than ever to disrupt the marketplace for rare coins and bullion coins. The presence of these counterfeits already calls into question people’s trust in collectible and investment grade coins. If left unchecked, an explosion of fake coins could have a devastating and last effect.

What is being done about it?

We ask Beth Deisher to take us beyond the headlines and drill deep into the grim reality facing our market and hobby. We talk about scattershot enforcement, the lack of expertise on the part of law enforcement, and go over a few of the small victories that the ACTF has earned in the past year.

If you care about the issue, you will find this highly-informative Podcast illuminating.
