The Coin Resource Center, available on the Stack’s Bowers Galleries website, is an in-depth digital archive of numismatic research, including a detailed reference guide for all US coins, historical backgrounds of each US mint, ‘Collector Guides’ explaining a variety of approaches to the hobby and tools for calculating the precious metal value of popular gold and silver coins.

Collectors will also have access to guidance from Stack’s Bowers Galleries’ team of numismatic experts.

Nearly 250 individual coins are already listed in the Coin Resource Center, which provides a hierarchical overview of all federal US coins, including history, designs and technical details, alongside high-resolution images.

Direct links to past sales in the Stack’s Bowers Galleries auction archives are also provided as convenient pricing references. Additional original and archival content will be added weekly, including an intended expansion into world and ancient coins, as well as paper money.

Content continues after advertisements

Already available alongside the US coin information is a guide for physical bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

Brian Kendrella, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries said:

‘I am extremely proud to introduce the Coin Resource Center. It is an intuitive and user-friendly platform organising our firm’s authoritative research featured in auction catalogues, periodicals, and series-defining publications over nearly a century.

'This archive of scholarly data will be presented alongside new and original content that can be regularly updated to reflect the latest research and collecting trends.’
