My Own Personal Coin Collecting Experience

With a cursor winking at me from my computer screen, and a pile of coins in front of me, to the left and also to the right of me. Contrary to how it might appear I’m no modern day Scrooge obsessively lingering over my money.

I am instead what is known as a coin collector and have been for quite some time now. In fact ever since I was three years old and could get my hands on whatever loose change had dared to fall out of anyone’s pockets.

The whole point of this article though is not to introduce you to my own personal coin collecting history – although that’s just a fun side note – but to get you interested in coin collecting and to help you swim the decidedly murky waters of beginning coin collecting.

As with any new hobby the waters will start to clear up as you go along and as you gain more experience. But I thought I’d just lend a helping hand for you to start with!

That’s not to say that anything and everything you’ll want to know as a beginning coin collector can be found within this article. There’s simply no way that I could have anticipated each and every question you might think of!

What I have done though, is to collect bits and pieces of information which I hope will be of interest and as helpful to you as they have been to me through the years. I’m not exaggerating, when I say I’ve run the gamut of everything to do with coin collecting.

Through the years I’ve managed to touch upon just about every aspect of coin collecting no matter how briefly. Naturally enough this doesn’t make me a master of any of them, although I do know my way around most of them.

However, it is indisputable that I’ve come full circle in my coin collecting ways and have now gone back to pawing – or rather sorting – through my day’s cache of coins. Which, is why, I’ve got three stacks of coins piled around me even though I’m currently being attacked by dust motes.

Collecting coins isn’t for everyone though. Especially in the beginning when there’s still a lot for you to learn, and you need to do the mundane instead of going for the spectacular starburst of finding a particularly rare coin.

You might have something better you can do with your life, but that doesn’t mean that coin collecting is a worthless hobby. Coin collecting spans the generational gap and spans the millennia as well.

It doesn’t only to need to be for monetary value, coin collecting can be something infinitely more rewarding than that for the person who perseveres

The collection of coins as an art form and as a hobby is a well established one. It is the Hobby of Kings as many a coin collector will tell you, and is pursued by many people all over the world.
