My apologies to Wayne Herndon and Dan Carr for not publishing this press release earlier due to some email snafus and a pressing ANA week schedule. Wayne's Wizard Coin Supply is a new source for all types of in-print numismatic books. The firm had a huge setup at the recent ANA convention in Baltimore. Those who collect ANA convention memorabilia or tokens of booksellers may be interested in acquiring examples of the Wizard tokens, created by E-Sylum subscriber Dan Carr. -EditorWizard Coin Supply, a global provider of coin collecting supplies, has issued a limited edition token commemorating the 2008 Baltimore World.s Fair of Money. The attractive token was designed by Daniel Carr whose resume includes the New York and Rhode Island state quarter designs. Wizard Coin Supply is a sponsor and the official supply dealer for the 2008 Baltimore World's Fair of Money organized by the American Numismatic Association.
The commemorative tokens will be available to World's Fair attendees at Wizard's booth (booth 1229) during the show which runs from July 30th to August 3rd. The pieces will also be available on Wizard's website while supplies last. .With a limited edition of 500 pieces, this fabulous token is destined to become a popular collector item. says Wizard.s Lady Karin Herndon (Wizard eschews traditional titles in favor of thematic ones).
The tokens, which also double as a gift certificate, carry a face value of $25 (their issue price) and are redeemable forever at Wizard Coin Supply for $25 in coin supplies. The tokens are struck in brass and measure 38.75 mm in diameter (a little larger than a silver dollar). Mintage is limited to 500 pieces to assure these pieces remain rare. Wizard anticipates periodic future issues with different designs as circumstances warrant gradually building to a series of collectible tokens.
Wizard Coin Supply is a global provider of coin collection supplies and coin collection accessories, based in the Washington DC suburbs of northern Virginia. Wizard is dedicated to providing its customers with the largest possible selection of quality coin supplies at deeply discounted prices and to promoting the hobby and enjoyment of numismatics.
Designer Daniel Carr received a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado in 1982. He also studied computer graphics and art extensively. He wrote his own digital sculpting computer software which he uses in an innovative process to create coins, medals, and tokens. In addition to submitting the winning design for the New York and Rhode Island state quarters, the final Maine quarter designed used by the Mint was based on Carr's design. In addition, Carr submitted designs that reached the finalist stage for the Wisconsin, Florida, California and Colorado quarters and the reverse of the Sacagawea Dollar.
