Wouldn't it be spectacular to turn
a lifelong passion into a business?
A coin collector since the age of
eight, Gregg Coburn branched
out into collecting paper currency
and other items. This past June,
he decided to launch his various
collections into a business--and
A*R*T Coins & Treasure was born.
Located adjacent to the Shell Gas
Station in New Baltimore, the shop
boasts an incredible range of coins
and paper money from all over
the world. In addition to state and
national park quarters, presidential
dollars, and a wide variety of U.S.
coins, Gregg has currency from
countries whose names begin with
every letter of the alphabet except
X--many of which you've heard of
(Albania, Brazil, Cambodia), as well
as several of which you probably
have not (Niue and Tuvalu).Of
course he has an impressive
collection of old coins--from the
1600s and after--including those
from individual countries within the
European Union before the euro
was launched.
Although he doesn't have expertise
in ancient currency, Gregg has
a fascinating conversation piece
on hand in the shop: two widow's
mites. As the Gospels of Mark and
Luke describe it, when Jesus taught
at the Temple in Jerusalem and
observed crowd members putting
money into the treasury, a poor
widow put in
t w o s m a l l
coins (mites),
worth just a
few cents,
a n d y e t i t
was all she
had. These
coins date
b a c k t w o
t h o u s a n d
years!
In addition,
Gregg has an impressive collection
of diecast model vehicles--lots of
Hot Wheels--as well as various
sports memorabilia. One of his most
treasured items is
a ticket stub from
the 1912 World
Series between the
Boston Red Sox
and the New York
Giants, stemming
from one of the
g a m e s h e l d i n
New York at the
Polo Grounds, a
former stadium in Manhattan.
Check out all these treasures
for yourself! To learn more,
