Friday, August 12, at 11:00 a.m.—“Money Talks” presentation: “Hidden Profits in Modern U.S. Mint Silver and Gold Medals.” Since the early 1970s the U.S. Mint has produced more than 50 collectible silver and gold medals—beautiful and sometimes rare works of art. Some were runaway best-sellers and made national headlines. Others are relatively unknown. Learn which ones are “sleepers”—underappreciated treasures with profit potential waiting to be discovered.
