Today marks a landmark in numismatic #history! On April 22nd, 1864 Congress passed legislation mandating IN GOD WE TRUST be added to coinage, starting with a new 2 cent piece. Fast forward 151 years and it's become an integral part of all American #coins!

Smaller than a #penny and thousands of years older, this Carthaginian #coin links intercontinental trade as far back as the Iron Age. http://ow.ly/LKGoV
The coin (pictured), which bears images of a horse's head and Carthaginian goddess, was discovered hidden in silt at the village of Saltford, which lies between Bristol and Bath on the River Avon.

Are you likely to go back through security for that lost #quarter? Or are you contributing to the $675,000 the #TSA raked in last year? http://ow.ly/LrVFh
The TSA said it found a massive trove of dropped coins in fiscal 2014, which it gets to keep

We recently had some questions about #coin grading services, and this article agrees it's all been confusing. Have you seen any Slab Stickers before? What do you think of them? http://ow.ly/LfSMF

Farewell, Mr. Jackson? #HarrietTubman officially beat out Eleanor Roosevelt and Rosa Parks in the final voting round to potentially become the first woman on American #currency. What do you think of this? - is it time for a replacement? Did somebody else have your vote? http://bit.ly/1cTkLse

Wishing all the mothers, grandmothers, and motherly figures out there a very happy Mother's Day! Did you know May 10 was also the first Mother's Day in the U.S., celebrated by West Virginia in 1908?

Sometimes with all the fanfare the simple beauty of #coins gets forgotten. Today we have no voice overs, no facts. Just 30 seconds of quiet to admire the stunning 2015 #Silver Eagle Proof from every angle you could.

Have you heard about the U.S. Mint's Mutilated #Coin Program? These scammers did - and almost took away 5 and a half million dollars. http://ow.ly/KTEWY
New Jersey federal prosecutors say several U.S. based metal recyclers have tried to defraud the U.S. Mint out of millions of dollars.
