National Coin Week videos: A project I had a lot of fun with
The week of April 15-21 is National Coin Week. And since I work for the largest organization of coin collectors in the world, this is a pretty big deal in my professional life.
My primary contribution to this endeavor has been to write, shoot and edit a series of videos that are rolling out, starting today, for a treasure hunt. Basically, we throw out six video clues/trivia questions about coinage, and then give our members a chance to see if they can collect/answer the clues/questions. Collectors who can get the answers to all six clues win a nice numismatic prize.
For this year’s effort, we decided to pattern our videos after the “This is SportsCenter” commercials. All of the people in the videos are ANA staff members (yours truly will star in the last one). The next one comes out on March 19. And now, here’s video clue No. 1.
So, what do y’all think? Funny? Lame? Hit the comments, please.
