National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
December 7, 1941. ”A day that will live in infamy.” as F.D.R. said in his Infamy Speech the following day. The Attack on Pearl Harbor is a historic turning point of our national heritage. It wasn’t until August, 23, 1994 that congress designated December 7 of each year as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. With that said, I am here to talk about coins, and this national holiday has many presses churning out commemorative coins. Some of these coins are very well done and some are not. The coin above is offered by the Royal Hawaiian Mint and is a very good-looking coin, I might say. As always, do your research on coins as some companies fine print can be deceptive. With the rising price of gold and silver, we are seeing more silver clad and gold-plated coins offered to the public. Be sure the coin or round has a weight marking, don’t always depend on the certificate of authenticity that usually accompanies these coins.
