Biblical Coins Part 3

December 25, 2017

This is the THIRD Webinar in our series on the Bible verses and references that are found on hundreds of rare European coins. Coins have been minted on English soil since before the time of Christ - for 2,150 years! And they made more coins with Bible references messages than any other nation. Last week our focus was on the great early hammered coins of Great Britain that have Bible verses displayed on them. This week we will focus the hammered coins we could not cover, as well as the early milled coins of England. 

In this fascinating study Greg will show us which coins were theological in nature, how the coins were used to "spread the Word," and what this means to collectors and coin investors. During the time most of these coins were minted they didn't have TV, radio, or even newspapers. So important ideas and sentiments were expressed on coins. You might even say that these coins were often mini "position papers" that articulated the monarch's thoughts or prayers. For instance, many coins bore this beautiful verse from Psalms 119:105 - "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet."

In 1990, with rare coin values in their infancy, Greg Holloway smashed the record books with the first sale in world history of any rare coin to bring over $1 million. Despite the fact that the world was in recession at the time, this transaction proved that rare coins have great appeal beyond economic conditions.

Greg actually began his career in 1970 at the age of 13. Before the end of his teenage years, he was recognized by his peers as a top expert. A virtual fixture at numismatic events, Greg has personally attended 1400 rare coin conventions.

Between 1986 and 1987, Greg was one of the 33 founding dealer members of both PCGS and NGC, the worlds two largest professional coin grading services. He was also one of the six original shareholders and graders of NGC for a brief period of time. In 1987, Greg was also one of the original shareholders of the worlds first real time rare coin trading system.

For over 20 years, Greg has been one of the worlds most prolific and respected instructors in the field of numismatics having given hundreds of webinars and teaching at in person conferences.

Today Greg is still active in all aspects of education of rare coins, having recently written the first ever encyclopedia of large English gold coins. Having been the first person in world history to sell any rare coin for over $1 million, Greg is eminently qualified to search for future $1 million coins that can still be bought for a fraction of this sum.
