What's a Numismatist?

Day 208 of My Italian Learning Journal*

A few days ago I was driving home and listening to the radio and heard a short story about the United States Mint. The U.S. Mint was established in 1792, and this month celebrated its 225th anniversary. The original Mint facility was located in Philadelphia, The Mint's mission is to produce currency for our country. Do you know who is a "numismatist" is and what this person does? This person may or may not be a coin collector. A numismatist studies coins and money. (Grammar corrections for my practice Italian script below are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • La Zecca degli Stati Uniti è stata fondata nel 1792.
    The United States Mint was founded in 1792.
  • La Zecca degli Stati Uniti produce le monete e la valuta cartacea del paese.
    The United States Mint produces the country's coins and paper currency.
  • Questo mese la Zecca degli Stati Uniti celebra il suo 225 ° anniversario.
    This month the United States Mint celebrates its 225th anniversary.
  • Sai cosa significa "numismatico"?
    Do you know what the word "numismatist" means?
