Message from Don Willis
As we celebrate the 237th anniversary of our country's independence lets take a moment to reflect on how this history has been depicted over the years through our coins. From the earliest representation of the 13 colonies in the interlocked circles of the 1793 Chain Cent to the striding Miss Liberty on today's Silver Eagles (and yesterday's Walking Liberty half dollars) to the bicentennial Kennedy half dollars or the number of stars representing states on many flowing hair and draped bust coins, our coins tell a story of the history of our country. Numismatists, young and old, can learn a great deal about our country simply from studying our coins!
