This week Coin World Associate Editor Steve Roach published the first issue of the publication's new monthly online newsletter. It's a well-done affair, with both text and images and links to full web page articles. This is a great step for the leading U.S. numismatic newspaper, which had at least temporarily been outshone online by rival Numismatic News and its NumisMaster web site. -Editor
Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Coin World Newsletter. Our goal is to have this monthly contain the same quality that has made Coin World the hobby's leading news weekly for nearly 50 years.
The premiere issue of our newsletter is focused on some timely information for your safety - how to prevent the robbery and/or theft of your collection. However, if misfortune does strike, we have some sources you can turn to for help. For the history aficionado, there is a tale of a daring daytime robbery at a famous museum. Plus we reach back into our archive and spotlight some of the characters who have sought to rob the U.S. Mint of its treasure.
The issue included links to interesting coin robbery articles. One is about a daring 1977 daytime robbery of 94 rare coins from the American Numismatic Society and their subsequent recovery, and another is about robberies at the U.S. Mint and its branches. -Editor
