Doylestown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/15/2016 -- As the best-known online retailer of coin collecting supplies to numismatists worldwide, SAFE® Collecting Supplies makes sure to keep updated on the latest from the United States Mint. With many new releases just out or on the horizon, SAFE® is listing its two summer favorites.
"One of the most noteworthy coins to just come out is the third release in the Mint's 'America the Beautiful Quarters' program, and tributes scenic Harpers Ferry, West Virginia," said Kurt Braun, who heads up SAFE® Collecting Supplies.
The coin to which Braun referred pays homage to the historic town and eponymous National Historical Park situated at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers, where West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland meet. Harpers Ferry, positioned on the divide of north and south, was the scene of an important battle in the American Civil War, and concluded with a significant win for the Confederate Army. The 2016 Harpers Ferry National Historical Park quarter memorializes the town by depicting an image of John Brown's Fort.
SAFE® Collecting Supplies also took note of the 2016 American Eagle One Ounce Platinum Proof Coin. "The 99.95 percent platinum coin with a denomination of 100 dollars, and valued at 1,450 dollars is a stunning specimen, and will make for an excellent centerpiece to any platinum collection," Braun said.
The 2016 American Eagle platinum coin comes featured with a relief of Liberty on its obverse face, and its reverse side shows another full-body personification of Liberty and an American Eagle, which represents freedom.
Those interested in displaying their coins—whether American Eagles, Harpers Ferry memorials or others—in secure, high quality coin display cases can view the SAFE® collection of coin supplies via the company's website. Or SAFE can also be reached at 877-395-SAFE (7233).
