Congress mandates use of "In God We Trust" by Bill Dunkenfield
1908 : Congress mandates use of "In God We Trust" In a move that seemingly flew in the face of America's founding belief in the separation of church and state, Congress passed legislation on this day in 1908 that made the maxim "In God We Trust" an obligatory element of certain coins. The motto...

"Real" Money by [email protected]
"Real" money, meaning that the value of the coin is in the metal, is gone now. Was the USA the last country to coin real money? If not, which country carried on coinage after LBJ eliminated silver coinage? BTW, I do not count legal tender coins like the US $50 gold coin, as it is not expected to...

Dipping by Dennis G. Rears
I've heard that some dealers (mainly from the major coin advertisers) dip coins. Supposely dipping is different from cleaning coins. A year ago I bought a 1934-2006 Lincoln cent set in a Dansco album labeled 1909-2007. I was missing 70 coins from 1909-1933. I've been buying them from various...
