The Numismatic Association of Southern California has created a variety of elongated coins to celebrate its role as host club for the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money in Los Angeles last month.
The club has made available the following elongateds: 500 copper cents; 50 2009 Formative Year cents that show the rail splitting design on the reverse; 50 2009 cents that show the Lincoln bust; a special edition of 25 sets that each include a copper cent, nickel, dime and quarter; and a special edition of 25 2009 Native American dollar coins.
All coins bear the same design that features a portrait of Lincoln as the central component with the years 1809 and 2009 on either side. Around the perimeter are the inscriptions “ANA World’s Fair of Money,” “Los Angeles” and “NASC Host.” The design was created by Oded Paz.
The copper cents cost $1 each, the Formative Years and 2009 Lincoln bust cents each cost $1.50, the U.S. coin sets cost $20 per set, and the Native American dollars cost $5 each. Add $2 per order for shipping and handling.
Items will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
