The Professional Numismatists Guild said that in 2014, rare US coin sales topped 5 billion dollars.
A 1787-dated gold Brasher Doubloon sold for nearly 4.6 million dollars in 2014 and was one of a dozen United States rare coins that sold at auction for over one million dollars in 2014.
A bill has been introduced in the US Senate that includes a few provisions that would impact coin collecting. If H.R. 5196: Unified Savings and Accountability Act becomes law, among other things, it would prevent the US Mint from producing coins that have a face value less than the cost to produce, which according to one article I read would include both pennies and nickels. The bill also provides for a one dollar coin to replace the note. Some say the bill has little chance of passing.
A Collectible Coin Protection Act was signed into law. The law strengthen legislation against selling unmarked reproduction coins. I doubt that really does much good.
Here is a link for more on that.
Despite the fact that sand and shells were shifted a bit, I'm not increasing my beach detecting conditions rating.
Yesterday I posted the results of the poll concerning favorite finds of 2014. Take a look if you didn't see it.
