News, Information, and Commentary on US Mint Products

Wednesday, February 18, 2009 Launched - Rate and Review Coins

I would like to announce the launch of a new coin related website Coin Review! allows collectors to rate and review their favorite (or least favorite) coins. Collectors provide ratings on a scale of one to five for the criteria of coin design, historical significance, and investment potential. Collectors can also provide written explanations for their ratings or comment on any other aspect of the coin.

The idea for the site came to me after seeing many readers of Mint News Blog or members of Coin Network expressing their opinions on newly released coins. I thought it would be interesting to create one site exclusively dedicated to coin reviews.

Currently the site allows ratings for nearly 100 coins, including all of the 2009 coin releases with images released, all 50 State Quarters, and recent Commemorative coin issues. If the concept proves popular, I will expand the number of coins to include other recent issues as well as some classic coins.

Please take some time to check out the site. You can post your coin review for the highly touted Ultra High Relief Double Eagle. Some people seem to dislike the reverse of the Abraham Lincoln Commemoratve Silver Dollar. What do you think? Or what about the Louis Braille Commemorative, the coin images have just been released by the US Mint.

In the past few months, I have created a few other coin related websites that bring web concepts to coin collecting. You can also check out Coin Network, a social network for coin collectors, and Click Coins, a start page for coin collectors that automatically aggregates coin content from around the internet. I still have a few other ideas planned, so stay tuned!
