Definition of numismatics

nu·​mis·​mat·​ics | \ ˌnü-məz-ˈma-tiks

The study or collection of coins, tokens, and paper money and sometimes related objects (such as medals)

Texan nu·​mis·​mat·​ics: (same as above, but with ammo)

When Laura House and her older brother inherit their grandfather’s coin collection, it falls on her to find out if they’re millionaires or not because big brother is safeguarding the Internet and is simply too busy. Will Laura be able to take on the daunting responsibility of researching each coin’s value? Or will she wind up selling the collection for $200, only to see it appraised for $3,000,000 on an episode of Antiques Roadshow? To find out, you’ll have to join us as we dive into the weird and wondrous world of numismatics.

Do YOU have a tiny victory to share?

Call the Tiny Victories Hotline: (323) 285-1675

We want folks to share their tiny victories on our hotline because, frankly, we’ll assume we’re just talking into the void every week and nothing matters. Prove us wrong. Did you finally do that thing you were putting off? Tiny victory! Reconnect with someone you haven’t been in touch with for ages? Victory! We only ask that you try to keep messages to under a minute so we’re able to play it on the show.

 

If you prefer, you can record a tiny victory on your phone and then email us the audio.

About the show

Tiny Victories is the 15 minute podcast that pushes back on the notion that you have to “go big” or “go home”. Sometimes just going is the victory. Each week, hosts Annabelle Gurwitch and Laura House invite listeners to adopt a TINY victory frame of mind, and share tales of fleeting joys and minor accomplishments in this majorly messed-up world.

What’s your Tiny Victory? Annabelle and Laura invite audience members to share stories on the Tiny Victories Hotline. To send in your Tiny Victory, call (323) 285-1675 or record a voice memo of your victory and email the file to tinyvictories@maximumfun.org.

Follow Tiny Victories at @GetTinyPod on Twitter and Instagram.
