The Stack’s Bowers Galleries August ANA World’s Fair of Money Showcase Auction, held this year in Anaheim, California, promises to be a tremendous event. The World coin auction sessions feature some fantastic rarities and highly collectible types; seemingly there is something for everyone. High on the list of extraordinary coins is a rare 1747 Mexican 8 Escudos.

There is something to be said for experience. There is something to be said for tradition. “Been there, done that” counts for a lot. Money cannot buy this.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to present a historic World War II Emergency Note in our August auction in conjunction with the ANA World’s Fair of Money in Anaheim, California. This classic and highly sought after piece was issued on Fanning Island, which is the closest landmass to Hawaii.

Among my many exonumia passions are love tokens. I have been quietly working for years on a set of never holed and never mounted Liberty Seated dime love tokens, 1837 to 1891, and I am just a half dozen dates away from completion. Every now and then another love token that is far outside my field comes along, the collector in me takes over, and presto, before I know it, I am the owner of yet another neat exonumia item. Case in point is this installment’s love token.

As we continue our Numismatic Summer Road Trip we head this week to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where there is an ultimate coin-related attraction, the United States Mint at Philadelphia. While this may be an obvious choice to numismatists, maybe you need to convince family members that it’s a great place to visit.
