News, Information, and Commentary on US Mint Products

Thursday, September 24, 2009 Launched- Watch Coin Collecting Videos

I am happy to announce the launch of a new coin related website Coins TV! is the official website of the video series "Spare Change: Coin Collecting Guide." The site contains all previous episodes of the series and will be updated as new episodes are released.

Each video typically focuses on a specific coin series, providing a historical or legislative background, coin design information, coin specifications and composition, key dates of the series, and suggestions for collecting and investing. The information is presented in an informative and entertaining fashion, which beginning and advanced collectors will enjoy.

The Saint Gaudens Double Eagle video is the latest episode to be released. Each episode has its own separate page on that allows visitors to rate the video and provide comments. Collectors can subscribe to receive notifications about new videos by RSS or email.

Readers of this blog will know that I enjoy putting together websites to bring web concepts to coin collectors. This latest website is a joint project with the star and producer of Spare Change, Mark Apsolon.

Some of the previous sites I have launched include a coin website directory at, a social network for coin collectors at, a coin news aggregation site at, and a coin ratings and review site at

I hope readers will enjoy visiting these sites. Tomorrow I will be back with a US Mint News related post. For now, there are a couple of noteworthy articles to check out on Coin Update News:

This is the type of thing I like to see. Some innovation in getting numismatic interests out into the mainstream. I know coin collecting may never be "cool", but I just don't think dusty closet-like coin shops is the way to go anymore. There needs to be more pizazz and excitement involved in the hobby. And this kind of thing... online webcasts concerning the history of different types of coins is a definitive starting point.

I would love to see a coin store that looks more like a normal store you would see in the mall. I would love to see more references to numismatics in books and movies and tv.

This site ROCKS!!
