A new series of educational videos, “Spare Change: Coin Collecting Guide,” is available for free at the recently launched Web site, www.CoinsTV.com.
Eight different videos on popular numismatic subjects already are online, and additional programs will be added in the coming weeks and months.
The Web site is a joint project of collector and CoinUpdate.com Webmaster Michael Zielinski and veteran video producer and collector Mark Apsolon.
The titles and topics of the eight episodes available for viewing anytime are Introduction to Coin Collecting, Liberty Head Double Eagle, Franklin Half Dollar, Indian Half Eagle and Indian Quarter Eagle, American Silver Eagle, Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, Presidential Dollar Series and Morgan Dollar.
“Each video provides historical or legislative background for the particular coinage series, information on the coin’s designer, coins specifications, key date coins and suggestions on collecting or investing in the series,” said Zielinski. “The information is presented in an informative and entertaining fashion, which new and advanced collectors will enjoy.”
“The Web site also provides a separate page for each video that allows viewers to rate the video or provide comments,” he said. “Visitors can also sign up to receive a notification whenever a new video is added to the Web site.”
