MICHIGAN

NORTHERN MICHIGAN

You will see that it is common to feature the Mackinac Bridge in northern Michigan sets, and an outline map of the Upper Peninsula in U.P sets

Check the backstamps and details and you can see that they are distinctly different coins, though

 

Why is Mackinaw spelled two different ways?  Simple.  It had the French spelling when founded by the French (they shortened the Indian name Michilimackinac to “Mackinac”).  The British used an English spelling, “Mackinaw” – although both are pronounced the same way (ending in “aw”).  The bridge, the county in the U.P., the water Straits, and the island use the French spelling.  Mackinaw City, a Coast Guard ship, and a style of clothing all use the English spelling.

ST. IGNACE

St. Ignace is the northern terminus of the Mackinac Bridge and one of two locations for catching the Mackinac Island ferry. For most, it is their gateway into the Upper Peninsula, where the terrain suddenly changes, Paul Bunyan is revered, and chain stores and restaurants are fairly scarce.

Check the backstamps and you can see that they are distinctly different coins, though

All St. Ignace coins pressed on uncirculated 1974D copper pennies. They may show minor fingerprint marks.

SOO LOCKS

Great Lakes Gifts

Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan

 

The Soo Locks enable ships to go from Lake Superior’s ports to the lower lakes and eventually the Atlantic Ocean.

 

A gift shop across from the locks has a single-die machine.  All coins rolled from this machine are short and cut off some of the border dots but not the design (see photo for example).  Frankly, it has been that way for years and, like many things in the U.P., it may never change.

GREAT LAKES SHIPWRECK MUSEUM

Whitefish Point, Michigan

 

A most remarkable place – this museum at a lighthouse complex honors those who perished in shipwrecks on these inland seas.  The museum existed even before they discovered that the legendary Edmund Fitzgerald had sunk just a few miles off this Lake Superior point. 

 

A single coin is available from this location, pressed on uncirculated 1974D copper.  The front pictures the light house, and the backstamp states “Built in 1849, oldest active light on Lake Superior.”

BARGAIN BARN -N- CARAMEL CORN SHOPS

 

MI55.bargainbarn.JPG

 

Complete set of 4.  Uncirculated 1974D copper cents; may show minor fingerprint marks.

 

Designs: “Up North Michigan” Bigfoot; Michigan lower peninsula “Great Lakes Unsalted”; Chief Wawatam; Mackinac Island ferries.

 

You will notice three coins from various locations featuring Bigfoot.  The Bigfoot craze is rather recent; he was not a factor in Michigan mythology when I was young (you were far more likley to hear about Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox).  I figure this type of legend is good for business, and like all legends someone has to make up the story before others can sell it.

Wienermobile set pressed on circulated 1943 steel U.S. cents.  Due to the strength of steel, these roll a bit short as the machine is calibrated for softer copper and zinc coins.  These coins show signs of wear.  The date is generally shown on the reverse.  These coins have a clear paint coating to prevent rust. We recommend you place them in Mylar 2x2 holders to help prevent any future deterioration. Do not allow these to get wet! Designs: Wienermobile; Ford Mustang; Tucker; Ford GT.
