We highlight one of his videos each week in The E-Sylum.
Here's one from 1987 about the China Mint and their fast-selling commemorative made for the Long Beach show. Do these sell at any premium over melt value today?
David Lisot travels to the Long Beach Coin Expo with Sam Lopresto, Gus Argyrus, Martin Weiss, B.H. Lim, Mayor of Long Beach, Mr. Shin. About the 1987 Panda Silver 5 ounce Long Beach Expo issues that has lines of people wanting it.
Sam Lopresto discussed the huge public interest in the show generated by David's suggestion of a promotional commercial on local television.
The China Mint issued a commemorative medal for the show with a total mintage of 2,000. 1,000 were brought to the show with 500 made available to dealers and the remaining 500 to the public on a first-come-first-served basis. A huge line snaked all around the floor.
