A 22-year-old coin collecting video starring actor James Earl Jones has been put on the Professional Numismatists Guild YouTube.com channel.
Access to the award-winning video is free.
“An important part of our educational effort is the video, ‘Money: History in Your Hands,’ jointly created by PNG and the American Numismatic Association, and hosted on camera by James Earl Jones. It gives viewers a compelling overview of the history of money, and how it relates to art, culture, history, politics and religion,” said PNG Executive Directory Robert Brueggeman.
“The 29-minute video is available for convenient viewing in two parts,” he said.
In addition, PNG has posted many more video presentations online to answer important questions and provide helpful information.
“We currently have more than a dozen videos about rare coins, paper money and precious metals available for complimentary viewing on PNG’s YouTube channel.
“They will be helpful for beginners to advanced collectors and investors with informative advice about buying, storing and selling numismatic items as well as gold, silver and platinum bullion items,” said Brueggeman.
Other informative PNG videos focus on topics of discovering the enjoyment of coin collecting, how to determine the value of your coins, and the importance of working with a reputable, knowledgeable dealer when you buy or sell.
All of the videos are can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb5co6ZLKPitRAw-6pDxeCw
