Don’s Desk: Coin Collecting in China

Posted on January 30, 2014 by No Comments

I just returned from several days at our Shanghai office. The Chinese culture is very interesting and there is always something new to discover and explore!  One thing that is the same in China as here in the States in the interest in collecting coins. Coin collectors in China are very much like we are. China’s long and  rich history combined with its many empires and regimes has resulted in many different coin types and varieties.  There are many different collecting specialties.  The coin market is very well established in China with coin markets in most major cities.  Collectors around the world share the same passion for their hobby!

Don’s Desk: FUN Show

Posted on January 14, 2014 by No Comments

We have just returned from another exciting FUN show. For starters the show must occupy the space of at least two football fields and it seems much larger! Hundreds of dealers were set up with varied and interesting displays of coins. Each day collectors clogged the aisles making new friends and renewing old friendships while in pursuit of their next acquisition. Heritage offered a wide selection of coins in a series of auctions that included several great rarities. PCGS held an enjoyable Registry luncheon that was well-attended by many old friends. It is official – the New Year kicked off in style with another great FUN show!
