Gifts for a coin collector

Collecting Tips | walking liberty

It's the holiday season again but this year is different. Because of COVID-19, we have to be on top of our game making sure we don't get COVID right before the holidays! But what do we do when we get asked "what do you want" and you don't know what do you do? Here's a list of useful things that you could ask for and if that is not enough I will put a link to youtube channels of my top two favorite YouTubers that discussed this here subject.1. some junk silver or a bag of random coins. This is the most basic thing to get a coin collector for the holidays. They are cheap (somewhat) and easy to get your hand on because they are sold everywhere!2. Coin flips or 2x2 coin holders. This is probably the cheapest thing on this here list! like number 1 these are easy to get your hands on and they have a wide variety of them.3. the latest red book or blue book. Don't you hate it when you get a U.S coin that looks rare but you don't know what it is? Well look no further these books come in a variety of books! we got big ones, small ones, we even got ones with a spiral on the side like a notebook!4. Neodymium magnet. Don't you hate it when you go to a coin swap or coin shop and you don't know if the silver coin is real or not? Well, they make the right tool to tell if the coin is real or not without acids! All you have to is swipe the magnet across said coin and if it sticks it a fake if it somewhat sticks then it's real.5. The final one an ANA or NGC membership. No, I am not getting paid to put this on the list I just think every coin collector should have this because they are good for you.6. And the final one, a coin world or numismatic news subscription. Like number 5 I am not getting paid for saying this (wish i was) having one of these subscriptions are a good thing because they connect you with other people, get your questions answered, and you could buy coins with both of their extensive market place.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FXlxWng_W8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUGsTYvmklAHope you liked this!

2006 commemorative

Collecting Tips | walking liberty

Does anyone here have a 2006 old mint commemorative coin? I don't know anyone that has one so I was wondering if any of you have one. They are really nice coins but kind of expensive.
