This week on the CoinWeek Podcast, CoinWeek editor Charles Morgan has an in-depth conversation with coin dealer Rob Oberth, owner of Oberth Rare Coins & Currency in Marietta, Georgia, and founder of the facebook group Coin Dealers Helping Coin Dealers.

We’ve followed this dealer to dealer trading group since its infancy and watched it grow to an active trading group with hundreds of active dealer participants. Coin Dealers Helping Coin Dealers is an social media trading and communication group that connects local dealers to other dealers from across the country, establishing a venue for the real-time appraisal and sale of merchandise as it comes through the door.

It is, if you will, an opportunity for instant capitalization and sale of rare and not so rare coins.

The Coin Dealers Helping Coin Dealers group has created quite a buzz at many a coin show and many private conversation we’ve had with dealers over the course of the past year, which informs us that this group has real potential to add a dynamic element to the back end of the coin industry, which for smaller localized dealers, has been sorely lacking.

How does this group impact you as a collector? We’ll ask Rob and find out… next on the CoinWeek Podcast.

The world mints create thousands of collector coins each year, many push the limit of what we have long considered the definition of coin and good taste.

In the US, however, the same staid process that has culminated in a generation of boring coin design continues apace.

How can the CCAC, the CFA, Treasury, and the Mint's most talented artists combine to create coins that often leave collectors wanting?

Former CCAC Chair Gary Marks returns to the CoinWeek Podcast and provides illuminating commentary on where the process might be going wrong, while CoinWeek editor Charles Morgan tries to put together his thoughts on how to make things better.

Better known in the wider hobby by the nom de coin “R. Tettenhorst” (which was actually the name of his secretary, to whom his packages were addressed), Bernard Edison--“Bunny” to his friends--carefully assembled his collection over a lifetime of business and civic success in the St. Louis, Missouri area. A member of the Edison family of Edison Brothers Stores fame, Bernard was born on March 23, 1928. Having graduated from Harvard University in 1949, Bernard then studied at Harvard Business School - even though he could have earned a PhD in mathematics instead.

And despite his prestigious education, Bernard served his country during the Korean War as a lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force.

Joining the family business, Bernard had become president of the company by the early 1970s. Edison Brothers Stores already had been expanding into different areas of the shoe and retail markets for over a decade, and under Bernard’s leadership the company continued to grow and expand - operating about 2,000 retail locations by the end of the ‘70s and achieving over $1 billion in sales by the mid-’80s. He stepped down in 1987 but continued to advise the company as a new generation of the family took over.

It might be worth noting that fellow St. Louis coin collector (and Edison’s relative through marriage) Eric P. Newman worked as an executive vice president at the company during this same time period.

Bernard also served on the corporate boards of several other companies, including Anheuser-Busch, General American Life Insurance Company, Mercantile Bancorporation, and Reinsurance Group of America. He also played an important role in many civic and philanthropic organizations over the course of his life, including BJC Health System, Civic Progress Inc., the Harry Edison Foundation, the Jewish Hospital of St. Louis, St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, and the United Way of Greater St. Louis. Bernard is also remembered for his patronage of the arts and the restoration of the old Edison Brothers warehouse in downtown St. Louis.

As a collector, Edison is famous for what is commonly called the “Missouri Cabinet” of U.S. Half Cents, one of the greatest collections of copper half cents ever assembled. Edison himself named it the “Davy Collection” after his youngest son (who is said to have worn a shirt that said “I’m Davy” to the sales), though it has come to be known best by the aforementioned name given to it by the late numismatist Walter Breen. The collection was auctioned publicly by the Goldbergs on January 26, 2014 at the Long Beach Expo.

Bernard Edison died on April 18, 2018. He is survived by his wife Marilyn Sue (née Wewers); his children Julie, Robin, Peter and David; and two grandchildren Jack and Benjamin. A memorial service was held at Temple Emanuel in St. Louis on Sunday, April 22.

Distinguished numismatist Pat Heller joins Charles Morgan for this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast.

Pat has always strongly advocated that people diversify their holdings with some amount of precious metals, but in the Age of Trump, will we see the political and economic winds change, making Americans more secure in the "full faith and credit" of the U.S. government?

Or, should stackers continue to stack regardless of which party holds power?

We also talk about why the U.S. Mint can't seem to gin up demand for its bullion coins the past two years and how China might have figured out a great way to get people into coins through sales channels in their banking system.

Should America follow their lead?

All this and more in this entertaining half hour chat with Pat.

Any precious metals advice given by Charles Morgan or Pat Heller is intended for entertainment purposes only. Before investing in any asset class, be sure to do your homework first.

While coin conventions focused on U.S. coins have stagnated in recent years, one area of the coin show circuit has continued to thrive: ancient and world coin shows. Whether its the New York International Numismatic Convention or the upstart Chicago Coin Expo, collectors of ancient and world coins see many benefits from buying coins in person and meeting with dealers and fellow collectors.

In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we talk to Chicago-based dealer Aaron Berk about what makes this segment of the market different and how changes in cultural property laws fundamentally misunderstand the role collectors play in preserving history.

In this episode of the coinWeek podcast, we talk to Mark Stephenson, Vice President of PCGS.

We ask Mark about the state of modern coin releases one quarter into 2018, how label programs have become more sophisticated in recent years, and what level of effort goes into the design of special coin holders and special PCGS insert programs.

It's an insightful conversation about what is happening right now in the coin industry and shows a side of the business that collectors don't often get to hear about.

Ira Goldberg is a fifty-year veteran of the rare coin industry. Over the course of his career, Ira has handled virtually every numismatic rarity you can think of. But the project he has worked on in secret over the past fifteen years with an anonymous collector may be his most significant endeavor. Called the Tyrant Collection, this varied collection of rare and important coins spans the millennia and covers civilizations across the globe. The first part of the collection, called "Tyrants of the Thames", covers a wide swath of English history, and contains a cascade of important and seldom seen coins.

Despite barely circulating, the Susan B. Anthony dollar can still be found at your local bank for face value. The coin, struck in earnest in 1979 and 1980, and then only for collectors in 1981, was an immediate failure upon its release and stockpiled in bank vaults and the Treasury by the tens of millions.

Then, without much fanfare, the coin made a one year return in 1999, at the same time that the U.S. Mint was preparing to launch the golden dollar in 2000.

In this CoinWeek Podcast, based on an article by Joshua McMorrow Hernandez, you will learn a great deal about the coin and get a sense of the different ways it can be collected today.
