5. Professional Numismatists Guild issues warning against counterfeits: The coin collecting community is well aware that counterfeit bullion and numismatic coins are offered for sale online and to dealers over the counter by sellers, but the broader public is less aware of the continuing problem.

3. Massive hoard of ancient Roman coins discovered in Spain: Coin World Buzz: A Spanish construction crew that was installing electricity in a park in Tomares — a town in the province of Seville — made an incredible discovery recently. 

2. 2016-W Standing Liberty gold quarter dollar makes CSNS stop: Collectors attending the CSNS Convention had the opportunity to preview an example of the 2016-W Standing Liberty gold quarter dollar at the U.S. Mint booth on the show bourse.
