Starting your own coin collection can provide you with a tremendous sense of reward and enjoyment, while also serving as a valuable form of investing. While many people begin coin collecting by simply stumbling into the hobby, there are others who choose to collect coins to build a nest egg for the future and do so with that specific purpose in mind. Whatever your motivations may be for collecting coins, if you are considering starting a collection of coins, you should know it is not that difficult.

While you might think that you would need a lot of expensive coins in order to begin a collection, that is not the case at all. You might even find that you already have a collectible coin on hand, but even if that is not so, there are plenty of affordable coins that you can begin collecting without feeling as though you need to break the bank to get started. One thing that you do need to consider when starting a collection is how you wish to group your coins. There are many different ways you can do this, but overall any logical way you choose to group your coins can be considered a collection.

There are two items that will need to be established for you to organize your coin collection. First, you need to determine how much money you wish to allocate for your collection and second, you need to establish the types of coins that might interest you.

There are a few different ways you can collect coins. One strategy that you might choose to use is the short set. Many collectors choose to collect a date range for a particular series of coins. The main reason for this is the cost, but availability is also an advantage. You could also choose to collect coins according to year. The benefit to this strategy is that you can typically obtain a coin from every year fairly reasonably. The most challenging way to build a coin collection is by collecting a complete set. A complete set includes every coin from each year and every mint.

As you begin your coin collection, keep in mind that ultimately the decision is yours. You can choose to collect whatever you wish and however you like. There is absolutely no right or wrong answer when it comes to coin collecting.
