Coins

AuburnBank can provide you with several types of Coins; Bullion, Commemorative and State Quarters. Through the year 2008, the 50 State Quarters program will honor every American State, in the order they each joined the Union. This program, along with the Golden Dollar coin program, have joined the Mint's American Eagle bullion program, commemoratives and medals in their appeal among consumers and collectors.


American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins: 

American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins are affordable investments, beautiful collectibles, thoughtful gifts and memorable incentives or rewards. Above all, as legal tender, they're the only silver bullion coins whose weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. They're also the only silver coins allowed in an IRA.

Silver has historically been the most affordable precious metal. Since 1986, the United States has minted one-dollar silver coins called "Silver Eagles." Each contains a minimum of one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver.

Each Silver Eagle is a work of art meticulously crafted to the exacting standards of the United States Mint. The design is based on Adolph A. Weinman's 1916 "Walking Liberty" half dollar, widely considered one of the more beautiful American coins ever minted.

Affordability. Credibility. Beauty. They're the qualities that have made American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins the world's best-selling silver coins, with more than 70 million sold since 1986. They're reasons to invest in " Liberty" today.


State Quarters 

The 50 State Quarters™ Program is 'changing' the 'state' of coin collecting. Approximately every 10 weeks, from 1999 to 2008, there will be a new state quarter to collect. Each quarter's reverse will celebrate one of the 50 states with a design honoring its unique history, traditions, and symbols. The quarters are released in the same order that the states joined the union. Collect them, spend them, or just plain look at them…change is exciting!


The Golden Dollar 

It's money. So use it.

It's not every day we come up with a completely new dollar. So naturally, we put a lot of thought into it. So did many of you.

If you haven't already, now's the time for you to meet the new Golden Dollar. Ultimately, the public and the United States Mint decided on the Golden Dollar's appealing design. But that design had to meet legal requirements already specified by both Congress and the Treasury Secretary. With the United States Dollar Coin Act of 1997, Congress required that the new dollar coin:
be golden in color,
have a distinctive edge, and
be the same size as the current Susan B. Anthony Dollar (26.5 mm in diameter).


Additionally, the Secretary of the Treasury required that the coin's obverse and reverse designs be as follows:
Obverse must show one or more women; cannot depict a living person.
Reverse must depict an eagle.
