This week I feature a rarest of the rare, finest of the fine note from the Joel R. Anderson Collection. As a class 19th century Gold Certificates are rare. This is because all or nearly all were held domestically and, unlike double eagles and other gold coins were not exported. No foreign Treasury desired to hold paper money instead of metallic gold. In contrast, double eagles were shipped abroad in quantity, and millions have been repatriated since World War II.​​

As time permits, in recent months I have been creating the second edition of A Tune for a Token, to be published by the Token and Medal Society, which issued the first edition in 1975. Some news about this was given to the CoinUpdate website then picked up by eSylum, resulting in a number of e-mails coming my way.​​

Stack's Bowers is excited to present another highlight of our upcoming August Hong Kong Showcase Auction, in this case a great type in superlative condition from Kiangnan Province. The province of Kiangnan was originally composed of the Anhwei and Kiangsu provinces, but by the time this piece was minted in 1898 separation had already occurred.  The name Kiangnan translates to "South of the river" and refers to the Yangtze. The largest mint for this period was located in the capital of Nanking. The coins from this series were inscribed with "Made in Kiangnan Province" to differentiate them from the copper pieces from Kiangsu province.​​
