Coin Collecting

Starting Your Collection


Collecting coins as a hobby is fun and easy. You just look through your change everyday and pick out the ones that interest you. Or the ones that are different or unique.

Everyone knows wheat pennies are old and so are buffalo head nickels. And if you look closely, you can still find them being spent everyday.

But, if you’re interested in coin collecting for profit or as an investment, there’s more to it than just looking through your pocket change.

Coin collecting is a very serious business for a lot of people. People all over the world make their living with it. Coin collecting has been a business for generations. And there’s the very real chance of losing a good chunk of money if you just jump in with both feet without knowing what you’re doing.

When you’re first starting out, take it slow. Do your homework. There’re many different areas of coin collecting to get into.

Look around and find a specific niche that interests you. If you just jump in and start buying everything that catches your interest, your collection will have no order or consistency.

Then later on when you do began to concentrate on one particular area, you’ll just have to sell the other coins to make room for what you’re really interested in. And this could result in financial losses.

You could start by visiting a local coin shop or attending a coin show. That’ll give you an idea of what’s out there.
