Golden Portraits of Byzantium - Every Picture Tells a Story 
July 27, 12pm MT

The portraits on the coins of the Byzantine Empire often tell us little or nothing about the physical appearance of the Emperors and Empresses who are portrayed on the coins, but they can tell us a great deal about the Empire itself and the circumstances of the time when the coins were minted. Let's look at the stories these pictures can tell.

Civil War Decorations of the Union and Confederacy
August 24, 12pm MT

The American Civil War was a travesty for everyone involved. When put into such situations, individuals are sometimes forced to perform acts of heroism that they never thought possible. Occasionally, those acts are recognized and rewarded with a medal. While Civil War soldiers were not decorated nearly as often as those of later wars, the few that were awarded are of extreme importance and are physical relics of the heroism by those faced with the unthinkable brutalities of war.

Jesse Kraft is the Resolute Americana Assistant Curator of American Numismatics at the American Numismatic Society, where his duties include coins, tokens, medals, and paper currencies from all of the Western Hemisphere.
