Numismatics is the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects. While numismatists are often characterized as students or collectors of coins, the discipline also includes the broader study of money and other payment media used to resolve debts and the exchange of goods. Early money used by people is referred to as "Odd and Curious", but the use of other goods in barter exchange is excluded, even where used as a circulating currency (e.g., cigarettes in prison). The Kyrgyz people used horses as the principal currency unit and gave small change in lambskins;[1] the lambskins may be suitable for numismatic study, but the horse is not. Many objects have been used for centuries, such as cowry shells, precious metals, and gems.

Today, most transactions take place by a form of payment with either inherent, standardized, or credit value. Numismatic value may be used to refer to the value in excess of the monetary value conferred by law, which is known as the "collector value."

Economic and historical studies of money's use and development are an integral part of the numismatists' study of money's physical embodiment.

Why am I just learning about mint marks?

Coins can be valuable based upon what criteria?

Namaska Ari---After you study, you will answer that question for yourself.


I will re read the information until I understand.

The date today is 3/24/2014 and this post is now available-teach your young people to learn how to use this in order to start their  future portfolios.

As per discussion in class on Wednesday evening: Learn this entire thread.


This coin will come to YOU if you are aware of it, The Stone Mountain Memorial half dollar

I will sir.

As per the discussion in class--investigate the entire thread.

currencies of other countries:

There are currently 180 currencies that are circulating either as official or de facto currencies of the 193United Nations (UN) member states, two UN observer states, nine partially recognized or unrecognized states, and 33 dependencies. These currencies include paper, cotton, and polymer banknotes and metalcoins. Countries generally have a monopoly on the issuing of currency, although some countries share currencies with other countries. Today, currencies are the dominant medium of exchange. Different countries may use the same term to refer to their respective currencies, even though the currencies may have little else to do with each other. In some countries, the currencies used vary regionally. For example, four currencies circulate in the partially recognized state of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, which claims the territory of Western Sahara. Some currencies, such as the Nagorno-Karabakh dram(pictured), are not used in day-to-day commerce, but are legal tender. (Full list...)
