Coin Facts

This is a collection of random coin facts that I think you will find useful when evaluating that coin loot you find out there. If you would like to see other information included, just let me know. I am always ready to improve this site. At this time I am only including information on American coins. Much more detailed information such as exact silver alloy composition is available through the Red Book by R. S. Yeoman.
