Coin Collecting - A Fun Hobby
Over the years, collecting coins has grown from being just a hobby to becoming a full-blown enterprise with numerous Internet
sites devoted to coins. Over the next several weeks, I will give you a little background about coin collecting to help those who
want to pursue this as a hobby and maybe even make some money in the process.
People have been collecting coins for centuries, because of their beauty, their value, and their history. When you hold an
old coin in your hand, it allows you to take a step back in history to the time of the coinage. For over 2,500 years, man's
history has been reflected in coins. From the ancient Greeks, the Romans, the British Empire, the California Gold Rush, and US coins, man's achievements have been depicted in coins.
Coin collecting, called numismatics, has become one of the most rewarding and popular hobbies in the world today. Over a
period of time as you begin to add more coins to your collection, you will be pleasantly surprised at the hours of enjoyment your
collection will bring. If you have taken time and care with your collection, not only will it be of value to you and those you
pass it on to, but could also be an investment for the future.
Please check back for future articles where we will be discussing early coins, 19th and 20th century coins,
commemorative coins, gold coins, determining the value of coins, and buying coins.
