Rare and Expensive Coins Are Being Tossed Back Into Circulation
By 24-7 Press Release
November 11, 2009

For some lucky shoppers, that pocket change could contain super rare coins worth thousands of dollars.

To Jeff Angello, of American Coin & Stamp Company, Inc., rare coins and precious metals are a hobby, a passion and a thriving business. As a token of his gratitude for the many years of collecting, buying and selling rare coins, he is placing 107 coins back into circulation. With a face value of only a few dollars, the rare coins add up to an approximate value of $4000.00.

One of these coins is a penny from 1955, which is the year that his father Joseph Angello founded the business. This particular penny is very valuable due to fact that it was minted with a mistake. The penny, which was minted in Philadelphia, had been stamped twice, causing a doubling of the numbers and letters on the face of the coin.

American Coin & Stamp, Inc. has been at their present location at 1273 Main Avenue in Clifton, New Jersey since 1972. Coin collectors come from all over to the store with gold and silver coins, foreign and US coins as well as other precious metals to be sold or appraised.

Jeff sees the spending of these rare and valuable coins as a way of giving back, while at the same time, hoping to create interest in the hobby, as well as giving the ardent numismatic collectors a chance at finding them. Eventually some of them may end up back in his possession as some of the best coins he is able to buy today were sold by his father more than 30 years ago.

No such American coin as a "penny", they are cents and the 1955 doubled die obverse Lincoln Cent was not "stamped twice" - the die itself was doubled during production so that every coin that die strikes is a doubled die.  Coins are also not "stamped" at all, they are coined.
