Exonumia of the Week

The Coins of the Bible Illustrated-Scott & Company 1884

Although this is a physically small book, it measures approximately 3-1/2 x 5-1/4 inches and is only approximately ¼ inch thick; the book carries quite a bit of heft. The reason for that would be the four “Fac-Similies of Coins Mentioned in the Holy Bible” nestled neatly into die-cut holes in the back cover, as issued. The book is 38-pages in length with minor scuffing along the covers, but the interior pages are nearly completely devoid of any stains, stray marks or other injuries. The pages are thick and crisp and the typeface bold and easy to read. Perhaps most surprisingly, the reproductions in the back are complete as a group and have not been abused in any obvious manner. It seems that this book was originally produced to allow school age children a chance to learn about coins in the Bible and as such it would stand to reason that the great majority of pieces still extant would show significant handling. This is not the case with the current example. The reproductions included in the back include one each “Shekel of Israel”, “Widow’s Mite”, “Shekel or Stater” and “Penny or Denarius”.

Coin of the Week

Lincoln 1918 PCGS MS67+ (CAC)

The Lincoln (or Illinois Centennial) commemorative was one of the first wave of commemorative half dollars issued by the United States Mint. It was produced in relatively large numbers, with approximately 100,000 issued, and the design responsibility was split between George T. Morgan and John R. Sinnock. Morgan had risen to Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint just one year prior, in 1917, and would keep that position until his death in 1925 whereupon Sinnock would replace him and remain there until 1947.

The earlier commemorative half dollars often suffered from careless handling upon sale, which can make the initial mintage numbers somewhat deceiving when searching for gem examples with terrific eye appeal. Although the Lincoln commem has survived in relatively plentiful numbers in near-gem, those examples much nicer than that are fairly scarce. The present piece has fantastic eye appeal with wonderful, complete luster rolling about the surfaces enrobed with glowing auburn, navy and golden toning along the obverse rims. Indeed, the obverse toning serves to frame the clean shaven and mournful portrait of Lincoln, based directly on the statue by Andrew O’Connor. It would be a difficult task to find a coin as fresh and attractive as this commemorative half dollar.
