The David Lisot Video Library on the Newman Numismatic Portal can be found at:
We highlight one of his videos each week in The E-Sylum.
Here's one from 1987 with more commentary over the mad collector rush for Panda coins from the China Mint, this time at a San Francisco coin show.
Reports on San Francisco Coin Expo, coin phrases, Oympic coins, Dealer Certification Program, ICTA, Mike Sherman, and Derek Pobjoy.
Purchasers found dealers willing to pay $1,600 for Pandas they'd just purchased for $800, prompting Lisot to remark that $800 isn't a bad payday for sleeping one night in line in the streets of San Francisco. He reported that a couple who'd driven all the way from Colorado with the woman 8 1/2 months pregnant were shut out and turned away by police.
Lisot also reported that the Singapore Mint got in on the action with a limited edition Rabbit coin, as did the Popjoy Mint with a piece for the Isle of Man.
Other topics include the U.S. Constitution coins, American Eagle bullion coins, pattern coins, and Gobrecht dollars. Finally, David interviews Derek Pobjoy of the Pobjoy Mint about the Isle of Man coins.
