During his tenure as TEC’s V.P. (2005-2009), he designed many of TEC’s elongated coins.
Oded continues to design and roll many coins for worthy causes, Coin Clubs, Coin Shows, Coin Dealers, charities and friends.
Oded Paz’1 fascination with elongated coins started quite a few years ago. He started trading, buying on eBay, buying at different coins shops and going on many smashing trips, probably too many to remember. Oded Paz2 enjoys designing and rolling these coins and hopes to continue designing more coins in the future!
On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse3 will be visible in totality within a band across the entire contiguous United States; it will only be visible in other countries as a partial eclipse. The last time a total solar eclipse was visible across the entire contiguous United States was during the June 8, 1918 eclipse.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth’s surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometers wide.
