From the Jan. 24, 2020 Numismatic News E-NewsLetter
Will you purchase a 2020 coin or medal commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two? Why or why not?
Here are some answers sent in from our E-Newsletter readers.
Yes, if it is reasonably priced to match my budget.
Ron E. Linder
Yes! I am a coin Collector and I served in the Royal Air Force. Also, I am old enough for the second World War to have a personal impact on my life.
Name and address withheld
Yes, absolutely I would purchase a WW2 commemorative. My grandfather and most of my uncles served both in Asia and Europe. A 75th anniversary would be something I would definitely like to own.
Being a Veteran, I think I will be purchasing Coins & Medals of the Armed Services and the celebration of the end of World War Two.
Steve McGowan, USMC Veteran
Yes, I would buy a coin or a medal. Why not?
Yes. I probably will purchase both the silver and gold medal/coin that the Mint plans to mint and offer to the public this year.
Stephen D Bodwell
No, the coins will not hold their value.
Yes, I will buy at least one. My grandfather and his brother fought in WWII and I’d like something to mark their service. I may even buy five, one for each of my children.
Yes. I would purchase the WWII coin.
