My start in Coin Collecting

Coins | user_1037

I started collecting coins in Middle School. I started collecting Indian Head cents and Wheat back cents, from there it was an easy move into Civil War Tokens and then the complete move into Exonumia. Collecting Tokens and Medals offered me so many possibilities about the collection I wanted to start. I started with Worlds Fairs and Expositions and over the years my collection has expanded to Encased coins, So Called Dollars and Good Luck Coins. The mystery of Exonumia is that you have no idea how many pieces are out there that will fit into your collection. This is where the excitement of collecting Exonumia comes into play, the thrill of the hunt, to find that one unique piece and you even get to learn a little history along the way.
