Coin show offers glimpse at unique coinage

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN, Okla._ There were coins of all shapes, colors, nations, and values at the Stephens County 45th Annual Coin Show.

It was held Saturday at the Stephens County Fairgrounds where coin collectors from all across Oklahoma and Texas came out to showoff their collections.  

Almost 40 booths of some of the finest collections our area has to offer, including rare pieces that are usually reserved for museums, were on display for all the collectors to see.

Ed McGill is one of those vendors. He has loved collecting coins ever since he was 10-years-old.

 

"Well I started when I was 10-years-old. My dad use to collect silver coins. When I turned 18-years-old, he gave me all the coins, and that's pretty much how I started," said McGill.

McGill hasn't stopped collecting since, and he has a very extensive collection.

Saturday McGill shared some tips for any new coin collectors out there. He said don't clean your coins, leave them like they are. McGill said they are worth more in their original state then if you try to clean them.

Duncan will host their first annual coin show this fall, September 12th and 13th, at the Stephens County Fairgrounds.
