Numismatic video by U.S. actor James Earl Jones available free on new PNG YouTube channel

The award-winning educational video, “Money: History in Your Hands,” narrated by acclaimed U.S. actor James Earl Jones, is now available for free on the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) YouTube channel.

“We currently have more than a dozen videos about rare coins, paper money and precious metals available for complimentary viewing on PNG’s YouTube channel,” said PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman. “They will be helpful for beginners to advanced collectors and investors with informative advice about buying, storing and selling numismatic items as well as gold, silver and platinum bullion items.”


Other PNG videos focus on topics of discovering the enjoyment of coin collecting, how to determine the value of your coins, and the importance of working with a reputable, knowledgeable dealer when you buy or sell.

Brueggeman explained the video is “an important part of our educational effort.”

“It gives viewers a compelling overview of the history of money, and how it relates to art, culture, history, politics and religion. The 29-minute video is available for convenient viewing in two parts.”
