Join Coin Network and Don't Miss a Thing
Have you joined Coin Network yet?
The new social networking site for coin collectors launched earlier this month and has already reached 350 members with more signing up daily.
The site has been growing on all fronts. Over 500 coin photos have been uploaded, including some incredible albums of early and modern US Commemorative coins. The video section is also growing. A new Coin Network member recently shared some of his own independently produced coin videos.
The forums have already become an excellent source of information and commentary on a wide array of numismatic topics. They are also becoming a source of breaking and inside information about the US Mint. There are already a few examples of news reaching Coin Network before it reached Mint News Blog.
After I posted a preview of the upcoming Ultra High Relief Double Eagle, a Coin Network member shared some "inside" information he had about the potential price for the coins. Today, I noticed that the 2008-P Sacagawea Dollar rolls were back on sale at the US Mint. The information was instantly posted on Coin Network for any members who wanted to take advantage. These rolls have been unavailable for a week and presumably sold out. They have already sold on eBay for over $50.
And finally, the best reason to join Coin Network is that you will have an opportunity to network and interact with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable group of coin collectors. If you haven't already, please check out Coin Network and consider joining!
Thanks for staying tuned! Tomorrow I'll be back to regular posting with an examination of recently sold out US Mint products.
