Coin World Podcast

Summary: Designed to highlight content being produced by the best-known and the unknown numismatists today, in addition to highlighting the work of those who came before. We are the inheritors of a great tradition, and in addition to news, we would like to consider the issues that have confronted and informed the hobby from antiquity to now. Interviews with numismatic professionals and movers and shakers will, we hope, give our listeners some insight about coins, history, and the hobby itself.
