I’ve been asked many times “What got you interested in coin collecting?”. I love being asked that question, because coin collecting has been a great passion of mine. It all started when I was a child and my grandfather introduced me to coin collecting. First he showed me his collection, over time he showed me more and more, eventually he started giving me some. He told me great stories of how he got them, and the history behind each coin. He inspired me to pick up this great hobby. Later, as I grew older I began trying to find more people interested in coin collecting. That’s when I went to my first coin show. Coin shows have helped me a ton, and are what really got me into this community. I have met many great people and have seen many awesome things at shows.
What got you interested in coin collecting? I’d love to hear it, either comment it on Facebook or send in your own blog post!
