Collector’s Corner

Don't be fooled by imitations!  Under the Hobby Protection Act, imitation coins must be plainly and permanently marked with the word “copy.”  Protect yourself and your collection. 

Did you know?

Did you know that all U.S. coinage is produced with a “coin turn?”  This means that the reverse (tails side) of a coin is upside down to the obverse (heads).  This is a traditional practice that has never been a legislative requirement.

O Shenandoah!
Flip shows the Shenandoah National Park quarter.

Flip the Mint Seal is up this month with his pick for April:  the just-released Shenandoah National Park quarter.  The Virginia-based park is filled with natural wonders like waterfalls and scenic overlooks that make it well worth an extended visit. 

Flip also points out the park's most famous footpath, so long that the huge park isn't big enough to contain it!  Read about it in the April Coin of the Month

Making Cents Once Again

April and spring begin with the new issue of Making Cents, the kids' quarterly online newsletter.  The articles feature the latest quarters, Presidential $1 coins, and spring events.  All these words and more then get wrapped up into a word-fill-in puzzle…no clues except the number of letters in each word.  It's a challenge, but with a little planning, the puzzle can be solved without even peeking at the answer key.  Check out the spring 2014 issue of Making Cents!
