Collecting Coins


How do people start collecting coins? Do they just wake up one morning and say "hmm, I think I’ll start a coin collection"? Well, maybe, but for most collectors, it starts with a gift.

Maybe a friend or relative has a hodgepodge collection of old coins. Nothing special, just some they’d been holding onto for years.

This collection gets passed on, and that sparks an interest. Maybe an interest in the coins themselves and their history, or maybe the potential earnings is what catches the new owner’s interest.

Some people realize the profit potential of coin collecting. And that potential is all they need to get started on their collection.

Other people just start finding coins that interest them and start their collection that way. There are even some that decide they want to start a collection and then decide on coins.

Coin collecting has a lot going for it. You can start with little or no investment. Pretty much just the currency value of the coin is all the initial investment you have to make.

You come across a wheat penny, buffalo head nickel or an old dime and decide to put it aside and your collection has started.

Or you could start with the state quarters that are being issued, or the newer presidential $1 coins. Whichever you choose, these coins are easily obtainable. You can make the effort to find them, or you can just make it a daily habit to look through your pocket change.
