The design on these Proof Silver Libertads is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2016! While the silver bullion coin was first struck back in 1982, its design changed in 1996 to the one we see today. The famous Mexican statue, Angel of Independence, is shown on the reverse of the coin, with the two volcanoes “Popocatepetl” and “Iztaccihuatl” in the far distance. The obverse design shows the current Official Seal of Mexico in the center, with depictions of the seals used in Mexico’s history surrounding it.

MCM will be offering this set graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as Proof 69 or 70 with the Ultra Cameo designation. These are the two highest grades that a proof coin can be assigned! These certified coins are offered with the MCM exclusive Mexico label. This label depicts the famous Mayan pyramid of Chichen Itza and adds an extra bit of collectability for special Mexican coins. For those collectors who are more traditional, they also offer the set in its original Mint packaging — a premium wooden box with a soft, velvet interior.

The Silver Libertad is one of the most popular silver bullion coins in the world, and the limited mintage of this proof silver collector’s version makes it extremely collectible! Every other year that La Casa de Moneda has issued Proof Silver Libertads, their limited quantity was sold out not long after they were released.

Surrounded by Scandal – Presidential Error Dollars can be Yours!

Mint Error Presidential Dollars

Mint Error Presidential Dollars

Once smuggled out of the US Mint – Now available hand-signed by the 38th Director of the US Mint, Edmund C. Moy!

Like all coins that leave the Mint and are added into circulation, Presidential Dollars were inspected for any noticeable errors. Inspectors sift through the finished product in search of coins that have errors or misstrikes. These coins will be destroyed and their material reused for new coins. However, errors have been known to slip through, often with help from unscrupulous Mint employees!

2008 Presidential Dollar - Martin Van Buren - Mint Error Missing Edge Lettering

2008 Presidential Dollar – Martin Van Buren – Mint Error Missing Edge Lettering

Over a period of several years, small groups of Presidential Dollars were minted with an astounding error. This error was not obvious at first, but glaring once it was noticed. The coins were minted with the edge lettering missing! No small matter since the edge lettering contained the year, the mint mark, and two mottos required by law: “E Pluribus Unum” & “In God We Trust.” A U.S. Mint police officer tasked with guarding the Mint discovered these coins and smuggled many of them out of the Mint to be sold to coin dealers. While this former police officer was caught and prosecuted, these error coins are legal tender and available to own by the general public.

As a leader in numismatics, ModernCoinMart is pleased to offer a variety of Presidential Dollars with Mint errors that have been certified by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) to authenticate the errors. Each dollar has been encapsulated with a label that has been hand-signed by Edmund Moy, the 38th Director of the United States Mint.

InfoVault: Differences Between Errors & Varieties

Beginner’s Corner Many people use the terms “error” and “variety” interchangeably with each other, but this is incorrect. The two are very different terms, and are joined by the term “die variety.” Knowing the differences between these three terms is extremely important when it comes to collecting as there are many people who will collect one, but not all of the aforementioned coins.

Latest 2016 Panda Release Features Baby Bei Bei

Officially licensed by the Smithsonian!

In 2014, MCM partnered with the Smithsonian Institute and the China Mint to create the first release in the Smithsonian Panda series, which featured Mei Xiang and Tian Tian. The next release featured Bao Bao, daughter to Mei Xiang and Tian Tian. Now, the 2016 releases will feature Mei Xiang and Tian Tian’s son, Bei Bei!

On August 22, 2015, the Smithsonian National Zoo announced that Mei Xiang and Tian Tian had their second baby in only two years! This baby was named “Bei Bei,” which means “precious treasure.” Bei Bei and his family have become symbols of international relations between China and the United States, as we work together to save this endangered species.

For the first time, new 2016-dated 1 oz. silver, 2 oz. silver, 5 oz. silver, and 1/10 oz. gold Pandas commemorate little Bei Bei. The obverse of each coin features Bei Bei, as he glances at his reflection in a pond. The reverse of each silver coin depicts the Great Wall of China, along with the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The reverse of each gold coin features the Smithsonian Castle.

With the popularity of the China Panda gold and silver coin series quickly rising among numismatists and stackers, these Bei Bei coins are expected to sell out quickly. Place your order today to avoid missing out on this exciting addition to China’s Panda family!

From the hands of Roman Emperors to your collection!

Coins of Ancient Rome

Coins of Ancient Rome

These coins were distributed by Roman Emperors and Politicians over 1,500 years ago!

Rome is one of the greatest civilizations to have ever made its mark in history. Although it began as a small city, this powerful civilization soon expanded to form a Republic. This Roman Republic prospered for many years until it was finally shattered by civil war and reformed as the Roman Empire! Over the course of hundreds of years, hundreds of rulers – magistrates, politicians, and finally Emperors – ruled the land of Rome and issued coinage under their name.

Random Ruler Roman Silver Denarius - 3 Different Coins

Random Ruler Roman Silver Denarius – 3 Different Coins

Despite the power these rulers possessed, the politics of Rome could be chaotic. Wars, assassination, and illness resulted in the death of many of these leaders, whereas simple old age claimed the rest. Over the course of the 420 years that the Roman Empire lasted undivided, it was ruled by 147 different emperors! While some of these leaders did not remain in power for very long, nearly every one of them issued coins during their reign.

The portraits on the coinage issued by some of these rulers is the only way that we know what they looked like. This makes each and every surviving coin an important historical artifact – one that you can now own!

ModernCoinMart (MCM) is proud to offer authentic Roman coinage. These coins have been circulated by the hands of Romans over 1,500 years ago, yet have survived in excellent condition! These coins are sold as a random ruler, which means you could receive a coin minted at any point in the history of the Roman Republic or the Roman Empire. The coins they offer have been certified by the Ancient Coin division of the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), which is the only name in ancient coin grading.

Random Ruler Roman Bronze Nummus – 3 Different Coins

While MCM will do their best to give you different emperors, keep in mind that the selection is random, so there is a possibility you will receive some of the same. However, to ensure you get different emperors, you can purchase a 3-coin set from their “3 Different Emperor” offering.

Don’t hesitate to make your coin collection a little more historic. Add authentic coins of the Roman Republic or the Roman Empire to your collection today!
