Jamey P's Favorite Coin
1804 Cohen-6 Manley Die State 9
This is a spiked chin half-cent with a very interesting progression of reverse die breaks.
You can see the cuds on the reverse
Stan M's Favorite Coin
I acquired this 1986 $50 Gold Eagle in the late 80's when I worked for a company that purchased a computer. The computer seller held an event with a drawing for a gold Krugerrand. I won it and kept it until the US Mint offered the gold eagle program. I traded in the Krugerrand for the Gold Eagle, which is one of the nicest coins minted.
One of Tom K's Favorite Coins
This One Trachy Scyphate was struck in Constantinople about 1185 AD.
Henry II ruled England during this time.
The crack came about as this cup shaped coin was struck.

Today my favorite coin is a 1999 Canadian Quarter.
I like it because I won it in a drawing at the

Marge M's Favorite Coin
1928 Italian 20 Lira
My folks traveled the world and brought this 1928 Italian Lira home. My interest in this coin grew when a dealer offered me $50 for it. I would like to learn more about this special coin
Jake D's Favorite Coin
1909 S Lincoln cent
This 1909 Lincoln Cent is a rare coin in fine condition. I like collecting Lincoln Cents. I already have the '09 and '09 VDB; I hope to get someday get an SVDB.
Joe G's Favorite Coin
I have a very eclectic collection of coins, but about a year ago I became interested in "Hobo Nickels". I had never even heard about them and now I have about 30. Included are pictures of a few of the variations.
Josie T's Favorite Coin
An artist carved out the eagle and turned this ordinary
Polish Zloty into a beautiful piece of jewelry.
My favorite coin does not spend most of its time in a
dark drawer or trapped in a collection case.
It is a source of pleasure every day.
