ANA World’s Fair of Money planning continues

August Convention Remains on the Schedule

While the country begins to re-open for business and stay-at-home restrictions are lifted, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) continues to plan for the World’s Fair of Money. The premier convention features all things related to coin collecting. This year, the ANA is returning to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, August 4-8.

Amid the pandemic, the ANA has been communicating with the convention committee of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The situation is fluid and the status of the show depends on COVID-19 restrictions set up by the State of Pennsylvania. At present, the City of Pittsburgh is following the guidance of Governor Tom Wolf, and final decisions have not yet been made regarding summer convention center activities.

Ascension: Silver crown coin remembers 50th anniversary of historic Apollo XIII mission

The government and treasury of Ascension have released (20th May) new silver Proof collector’s coins which commemorate the 50th anniversary of the heroic Apollo XIII mission. This was the seventh crewed mission in the American Apollo space programme and the third which was meant to land on the moon. However, two days into the mission and it quickly turned into a scenario of just making sure the crew were brought home unharmed and alive.

The Pobjoy Mint UK produces the coins at their facilities in Surrey, England, on behalf of the government and treasury of Ascension. To mark this historic event, the first coin was struck on the 17th April 2020 — the actual day of the 50th anniversary when the worldwide audience watched the Lunar Module splashdown adding greater emphasis to the anniversary. The events surrounding the mission was also dramatized in a feature-length film in 1995 entitled Apollo 13, which received critical acclaim having been nominated for nine Academy Awards...

1879-O Liberty Head $20, PCGS AU-53, Blue Hill Collection Pedigree. Hover to zoom.

An auction that was supposed to take place at Harrah’s in New Orleans, as part of the PCGS Members Only Show, was forced to become a webcast event held at Legend’s central New Jersey offices due to the ongoing coronavirus global pandemic of 2020. Despite this change, results for quality coins, especially those graded by PCGS and accompanied by a CAC sticker, remained strong, showing continued resilience in the coin market. From the start of the sale, which began with the Blue Hill Collection of New Orleans silver dollars and Double Eagles, activity was strong.

Even before the sale opened for live bidding on the evening of Thursday, May 14, there was a record number of registrants for a sale of this size, (it was a smaller sale featuring just over 300 lots). Those that registered were intent on winning the coins they desired. The New Orleans silver dollars had such strength that it seems the dollar...
