Protect Your Coins with a Coin Collecting Book
Nov 12th, 2016 by Aldouspi

coin-collection-album

Are you keeping your special coins in a drawer or a bowl? When you collect coins, you want to keep those coins in as mint condition as possible. Mint condition means that the coins don't have any marks or nicks and that they look just as shiny as they did when they came off the mint. You won't keep them in mint condition (or the same condition when you got them) for very long, if you just keep them in a jar, or in a can beside or under your bed.

Some people like to keep their coins in tiny plastic sleeves, but these are hard to keep track of; especially if you have a lot of them. Instead, why not keep your coins in a coin collecting book or coin folder, instead of boxes? The plastic sheathe in the coin collecting book helps to protect your coins from wear and tear. What's more, your coin collecting book will keep your coins together and the book is a great way to show your collection off to anyone who is curious.

Getting Started With a Coin Collecting Book

Nowadays you can get coin collecting books or albums online at eBay or other sites. There are also books sold at coin collecting shows where people love to show off their coin collections, where people love to trade and sell their coins and also love to sell coin collecting reference books where you can learn a lot about coins and coin collecting.

Coin Collecting Albums: Types of Books

There are coin collecting books for just US coins, there are coin collecting books for both US and international coins and then there are books for more historical coins, such as Roman Empire gold coins and such. There are, in fact, books for any type of coin you could ever think of.

Don't worry if you only have one or two coins of a particular type - like Indian Head Pennies, for example. Part of the fun of collecting is filling up the book your new coin album will often give you the incentive you need to get more coins so that you can fill one or even several books that will comprise your coin collection.

Coin collecting is extremely fun and it's interesting to see the differences in the various coins used as money throughout history. And even if you only have a couple of current coins circulating today, put them in a coin collecting book and keep collecting. Soon, you will see the surge in the number of coins ornamenting your books. Before you know it, you'll have a collection most collectors would envy and they'll be perfectly preserved and beautifully displayed in your various books.

One of the ways preferred by many is to classify sections within the book like Obama coin collection, bible coin collection or say valuable coins collection. If you are into foreign coin collecting then you can classify you coins as per country of their origin.

Marking Historical and Cultural Events with Collectible Coins

Marking Historical and Cultural Events with Collectible Coins

Collectible Coins

Coin collecting, as a hobby, is very much linked to history. People collect coins to mark events in our nation's history and culture. They are a visually alluring keepsake and a great place to start a conversation about a historical time or place. Part of the fun of coin collecting is learning about the historical events surrounding some of history's most important coinage.

With the hundredth anniversary of the Titanic fast approaching cultural interest in the subject has reached a fever pitch. James Cameron's 1997 film masterpiece Titanic has been re-released in 3D. Cameron is currently working on another film project relating to the Titanic. He has even commissioned a special submarine to take him to the deepest depths of the wreck. The creator of the PBS' hit show Downtown Abbey, Julian Fellowes, (the first episode of the series features the Titanic heavily) is currently working on a Titanic themed miniseries in the vein of Downtown Abby.

The world of collectible coins is also celebrating this historic event. Colorized coins relating to the anniversary are already available and are moving fast. Titanic related coins come in many forms, shapes, sizes, and colors. They are available in any price range so everyone can celebrate this momentous occasion together. If you are looking for a good gift for a coin collector I would highly suggest any number of Titanic themed coin sets.

Types of Coins to collect
Feb 23rd, 2011 by Aldouspi

Types of Coins to collect

Simplicity is not the best policy when it comes to coin collecting. Oftentimes it is the rareness, the history, or the mother country of the coins that collectors value most.

Here is a wide array of the variety of coins that "coinophiles" are obsessed with:

National Coins: Patriotism in Coins

Usually, national coin collectors are interested in collecting their own country's coins. It is common practice for collectors of national coins to get a representative coin from each date and mint marks for each coin series. Various national coin collectors combine a unique variation of series, date and mint marks.

Error Coins: It's OK to be Not-So-OK

One of the modern types of coin collecting is known as error coin collecting. Errors became possible when the production of coins was automated during the nineteenth century. Collectors of historic coins are fine with error coins because they like the uniqueness or error coins. Even modern day coin collector falls in love with error coins because they are assured that the modern processes promise that they are unique. The characteristics or coin errors include the following:

- dies that are doubled
- mint marks that are repunched
- over-dated
- double strikes
- coins that are "off" metal
- coins that are displaced or off center
- coins that are clipped
- one coin with different nominations on two sides a.k.a. mules

World Coins: Hobby of Kings…. of the World

Collecting world coins is about gathering those modern coins from all the countries of the world. Geographically-challenged individuals will have a hard time participating in this kind of coin collecting. If you would like to be a collector of world coins, you must be prepared to spend a considerable amount of money if you would want to have an extensive collection - being a "jetsetter" might be required. World coin collectors often acquire representative coins from each country or from authorities that issue coins. There are also world coin collectors that collect by subject such as those coins that feature animals.

Historical Coins: The Value of the Past

Collectors of historic coins find value in mints that are from medieval or ancient times. The most popular of these historic coins include the following:

- Byzantine
- Celtic
- Greek
- Indian
- Israelite
- Merovingian
- Ostrogothic

There are other ancient coin specialties but it really depends on the preferences of the collectors. The popular way is to collect the coins that were minted during the reign of a certain emperor or king.

Coin Collecting 101: What Type of Coin Should you Collect?

Coin Collecting 101: What Type of Coin Should you Collect?

Coin collecting is a fun hobby to start and the thrill of hunting for old coins is enough for many people to continue doing it. Other people consider coin collecting an investment, something they can receive a profit from. If you are one of those people, then you can find several types of coins in this article that will help you determine what others are looking for.

Most coin collectors will look for only a specific kind of coin that will make their collection more valuable and interesting to buyers. Others are collecting for sentimentality and are looking more at the coin’s uniqueness.

Series collectors are those looking for a series of coins that mark every year and every design change made in that coin.

Type collectors are those people who are looking to get one of each coin where there were/are changes made.

Ancient coin collectors are those people looking for coins spanning the years 650 BC – 450 AD. This is the time when coins were invented and there were silver, gold and bronze versions made. It also marks the time when Roman emperors were the rulers and most of them feature famous Roman emperors, Roman towns, or gods.

Token collectors are those who are looking for different kinds of tokens that were used in exchange for real money when there was a lack of coins. These tokens were used as local currency even if the government had not given permission for them to be used.

Coins are also graded. A coin’s grading depends on its condition and the price of the coin will rely heavily on that grade. It is important for a coin collector to know how to grade a coin to make sure that he is not swindled by individuals looking for a quick profit.

“Uncirculated” coins are those coins that are not showing any wear and tear or to referred to as “in mint condition”. A mint state (MS) grading depends on a coin’s luster, contact marks, hair lines and overall appeal. A coin can have a grade ranging from MS-60 (dull luster) to a flawless MS-70. Although MS-70 is considered unobtainable, a grade of MS-65 and higher will make a coin’s price shoot up.

Circulated coins are more forgiving, they do not take into consideration the amount of scratches and dirt a coin has gathered along the years. Grades for circulated coins will vary. AU (about “uncirculated”), EF (extremely fine), VF (very fine), F (fine), VG (very good), G (good), AG (about good), F-2 (fair) and P (poor) are used as indication of how much a coin is worth.

These grades are dependent on a circulated coin’s luster, visible wear, design elements and visibility of letters and numerals. Unlike “uncirculated” coin’s grades, these grades do not dramatically lower a coin’s value. This is wonderful for people who are looking just to complete a collection and do not care about a coin’s mint condition.

Pricing of a coin will usually be determined by a coin’s supply and demand. Very low supply and very high demand will make a coin’s price higher; however, high supplies of the coins will depreciate a coin’s value.

Demand is usually established by coin dealers where they take into consideration the number of people wanting to buy or sell the coins. Once a coin becomes difficult to find, coin dealers will usually make its price higher so that people are inclined to sell extra copies of their coins.

Grading and pricing a coin usually takes a lot of experience to master. Although there are several tips and guidelines to look for in grading a coin, only professional dealers have the final say on how much a coin is worth. It does not hurt to know this grading is done and why your coin was graded differently from what you thought.

Coin collecting is not really about investment, it should be a fun and thrilling hobby. While the overall goal of a coin collector is to complete a set of coins, learning what to look for in a coin is important to make sure that no one can take advantage of your need to complete a particular set.
