B & T Coins and Militaria

with one comment

I was driving through Jacksonville, Florida and I found this great shop.  B&T Coins & Militaria is the kind of place that makes me love the coin business.  When the term small business was coined, no pun intended, they were talking about companies like this.  Run by the owner/operator, BJ and his Daughter, he some good coins, but even better militaria.  Stop on in if you in the neighborhood and take a look at the fascinating items he has on display.

2011 United States Army Commemorative Coins

with one comment

These Coins are really cool.  The series shows our Army soldiers in Military uniform, from the Revolutionary War to their current Army Combat Uniform (ACU) .  To quote the U.S.Mint “For 236 years, the United States Army has protected our great Nation. More than 30 million men and women have served in it since its founding. Pay tribute to the rich history of the United States Army with these handsomely crafted and beautifully designed coins.”   If you have a loved one in the Army, or are just a fan of this branch of the military.  This series would be a great addition to your collection.  Pick one up today at the U.S. Mint.

Coins for Anything

leave a comment »

I did a post on Challenge Coins a ways back and received a comment asking where one could have these kinds of coins made.  While searching the inter-web I came across a company that can do just that, Coins for Anything Inc. is your go to place to get that special coin made for any occasion.  They strive for complete customer satisfaction, and will do a digital image of your coin for free.  I hope to have a few coins of my own made one of these days, after all this is The|Coinologist.

Challenge Coins

with 3 comments

The more I research coins, the more I find out unique and interesting stories.  The Challenge Coin is a coin or medallion, bearing an organization’s insignia or emblem, usually military,  and carried by the organization’s members. They are given to prove membership when challenged, thus helping to create unity.  The origins of the coin are what stories are made of.   My friends at Challenge Coins have a great website dedicated to their passion of these coins.
