Hello I’m new to the coin world and silver stacking communities. My goal is to become certified through the online program and be able to turn my new hobbie Into an education I can share and enjoy. I also YouTube under the name Hopeful stacker if anyone wants to check it out and see what I’m into. I’m very excited to try to submit my first few coins for grading from my recent searches.

Welcome and it is good to hear the passion in your writing.

Welcome to the ANA. Ask away as I'm certain you'll find an answer. As for myself, I try sticking with one series at a time. While I will buy something that strikes my interest from time to time, my collection seems to have grown much faster and more consistent in eye appeal using this approach. As I begin I buy a good, series specific book and conduct further research through forum questions and the like. Enjoyed reading your blog.

welcome to the wonderful ANA community; here you will find informative, experienced hobbyists, new and rising members, and everything in between. As Mike wisely says, keep learning, always, or try stamps! Also, I would recomend the ANA Summer Seminar as a great educational program (I have yet to attend one, regrettably, but I have never heard but good word of it)

Easy as she goes you're not in a hurry but you can read practically anytime you want for little or no money. They say buy the book before the coin and that's pretty good advice. Unlike TP there is no shortage of good coin books. Oh, there I go again like the merry bunch we are making a funny, welcome to the family!
