About This Item

Monedas Elongadas ZGZ - Chicago (IL)

SP: Moneda elongada es una moneda normal que ha sido elongada (estirada o alargada por tracción mecánica) troquelando en ella un nuevo diseño con el fin de crear un souvenir o medalla de recuerdo. El coleccionismo de monedas elongadas se suele englobar en la exonumia, considerada una rama de la numismática. Está generalmente aceptado que las primeras máquinas de monedas elongadas aparecieron en los Estados Unidos, entre los años 1892-1893, concretamente durante la Exposición Universal de Chicago (1893), coincidiendo con la celebración del IV Centenario del Descubrimiento de América. El primer diseñador de monedas elongadas que se conoce es Charles Damm, que creó el diseño para las monedas elongadas disponibles en la Exposición Panamericana celebrada en Buffalo (New York), en 1901.

EN: Elongated coins are coins that have been elongated (flattened or stretched) and embossed with a new design with the purpose of creating a commemorative or souvenir token. The collecting of elongated coins is a branch of numismatics. Elongated coins are also categorized as exonumia. The first elongated coins in the United States were created at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois, held in 1893. Several designs were issued to commemorate the fair, and are available in the elongated coin collecting community today. The earliest elongated coin designer on record is Charles Damm, who created the  design for the elongated coins available at the 1901 Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, New York.
