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!

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.

CoinWeek asked our two newest writers Chris Bulfinch and Tyler Rossi to sit down and discuss how their childhood friendship forged through their local scouting program sparked a lifelong love for numismatics.

Bulfinch and Rossi have accomplished much as writers are part of an emerging generation of younger collectors and experts that will carry the hobby forward.

This hour-long discussion gives you a seat at the table as Charles, Chris, and Tyler discuss their experiences with coins.

In this week’s episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, CoinWeek’s very own ancient coin expert Mike Markowitz talks about what it takes to become a professional classical numismatist. How do you start? Where should you go? What should you study? What languages should you learn? (Spoiler alert: Latin might be one of them.)

Mike passes on some advice he’s received from numerous dealers, numismatists, publishers, collectors and experts from around the world about just what a person needs to know and what someone should expect trying to start out in the industry.

He also gives an overview of the market for ancient coins... what kinds of jobs exist... and also what kind of jobs adjacent to the field might help you gain entry or participate in other ways.

It’s not an easy business. But if you’re passionate about ancient coins, then it can be a rewarding one - and Mike tells you how next, on the CoinWeek Podcast...

Every Presidential administration brings has its own personality and influence on American policy. The Trump Administration did not fail to deliver in this regard. In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, editor Charles Morgan is joined by CoinWeek staff writer Chris Bulfinch to discuss the main policies as they pertain to numismatics.

In this episode, we discuss the new circulating commemorative coin programs, design changes to the American Silver Eagle, the ongoing coin shortage, and the decision to cancel or at least delay the issuing of the "Tubman" $20 Federal Reserve Note.

It's an informed and informative 40-minute program that recaps the last four years and we hope you enjoy it.

But before we get into that, don’t let something truly horrifying happen to your rare coin investments, protect yourself by asking your dealer to offer you coins that take advantage of PCGS’ patented new NFC Anti-Counterfeiting Protection. This state-of-the-art piece of mind giver will open the door to a new way to access the latest information about your coins and to ensure that your coin and the holder it is in is a genuine PCGS product.

After a year-long public campaign to redesign the $20 bill, Obama Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that a portrait of Civil Rights pioneer Harriet Tubman would replace the long-serving portrait of controversial president Andrew Jackson as part of the government's observation of the centennial of Woman's Suffrage.

The Trump administration took a different position and decided not follow through with the previous administration's plans. In 2021, Andrew Jackson remains on the $20 Federal Reserve Note, and proposals to honor Tubman, numismatically, have taken a different form.

Lots in the politics of it all is a woman whose impact on the American experiment went far beyond her involvement with the Underground Railroad. In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we talk to Karen V. Hill, President, and CEO of the Harriet Tubman Home. Karen has dedicated a tremendous amount of time and energy to sharing Tubman's story and was instrumental in the Treasury Department's quest to locate a portrait of Harriet to use on the proposed $20 bill.

We pay proper tribute to this great American next, on the CoinWeek Podcast.

Ok, ok, we are skipping ahead in our numbering sequence, but how could we resist?

Numismatics can pop up anywhere and in this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we take a very unexpected turn and discuss one of several embedded symbolic themes of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick’s class horror film the Shining.

The film the Shining is based on Stephen King’s horror novel of the same name but has a number of unique storytelling elements of its own. The horror novelist famously disapproved of Kubrick’s treatment, but that hasn’t stopped the film from being a landmark in its own right. I first saw the Shining as a youngster, much too young to deal with this sinister ghost story and it has haunted me ever since.

In this Podcast, I interview Rob Ager, a popular YouTuber, and film analyst, whose channel Collative Learning breaks films down to a granular level. Just the kind of youtube blackhole you late night insomniacs might be after once you’ve put away your last bottle of jewel luster and air-dried your last batch of Morgan dollars. Rob produced a series of videos about the Shining and Kubrick’s Gold Standard symbolism and we wanted to talk to him about it.

Get ready to get creeped out…. Next on the CoinWeek Podcast
