The U.S. Mint will offer three new products for sale on January 10.  To order coins from them, visit their website at, or call them toll free at 1 - 800 - USA - MINT.

The silver American Eagle ounce coin in proof condition will be housed in a capsule in a special box. The annual Congratulations coin set will be offered, along with a print of Dr. Martin Luther King produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

There will be a coin show on January 13 at the Elks Lodge on Route 12 in Auburn.  Hours are 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM. Off street parking and admission are free, but there is a charge for "early - bird" admission.

The first stamp by the U.S. Postal Service for this year will be the annual "Love" stamp debuting on January 10.  The stamp was pictured in this column two weeks ago.

The design features a dozen hearts jumbled over the word "love" in cursive script. The words "Forever USA" are located at the bottom of the image.  The stamp will be sold in panes of twenty subjects at the current first class rate of fifty cents each, but will go up to fifty five cents each on January 27 to reflect the rate increase.
