Once Halloween is over, the holiday season really gets going. Thanksgiving is three weeks from today. Christmas not long after that. Is it time to think about coin gifts?
There are many ideas, so much to choose from. A bag of mixed world coins can be a nice gift for a budding collector. A birth year proof set or mint set. A set of War nickels for the World War II buff. A silver eagle or an old-fashioned silver dollar. A gift of two silver dollars got me started in numismatics.
Give yourself a gift! Years ago I spotted a selection of 50 different Barber quarters. What a good starter set, that began a new collecting challenge. A local coin shop had a box of mixed Mercury dimes in the window. That made a good gift.
Reference books make good gifts at all times. Try a new book on a new series.
Possibilities are endless. Start thinking, and start shopping.
