What do you think about the Great American Coin Hunt going on this week?

Here are some answers sent in from our E-Newsletter readers.

I think this is great.Thanks to those who participated. I hope non-collectors recognize the benefit and get the “fire” to collect. I also hope new and existing collectors find honest people who are good guides and helps them collect what they enjoy honestly... quality not necessarily quantity.I commend the efforts of all who attempt to help others enjoy the hobby as I have for about 50 years... and continue to enjoy.

Driving me crazy, fun, exciting to look for. The Mint really messed up, overminting Statehood quarters.

I had not heard anything about the coin hunt. I think from time to time, it IS a good idea to have it. After all, it does provide awareness to the hobby.

I think it’s a fantastic idea! Hopefully lots of kids will find the old coins and get interested in collecting.

The GACH showed 3 pins in the Cleveland, OH area. I went to one of the pin sites. It was in Rocky River Nature Center. Coin (or coins) were to be left in parking lot and trails. I went on Wednesday and combed the parking lot. I found nothing. I called the coin shop and talked to the owner who left the coin (or coins) and he said he left the coin (or coins) on Monday and was not going. back to leave anymore the rest of the week. In fact he did not even go back to see if what he left was found by someone. Very disappointing. Called a few other coin dealers in the Cleveland area and none were participating. It was worth a try but the GACH was truly a failure in the Cleveland area.
