The 2014 cupped-shaped Hall of Fame baseball commemorative coins captured the imagination of the American coin collector.
After all, the U.S. Mint seemed to be boldly going where none had gone before.
But that wasn’t the case. There were forerunners. Followers of the Coin of the Year Award, an international award sponsored by “World Coin News,” sister publication to “Numismatic News,” knew that.
The award has been given annually since 1984. A handy new book shows all of the winners in outstanding color.
“Coin of the Year, Celebrating Three Decades of the Best in Coin Design and Craftsmanship” by Donald Scarinci is priced at just $27.99 on www.shopnumismaster.
That’s a small price to pay to learn the future.
Past winners in the Most Innovative Coin category offer clues as to where American coins might go next.
