So what is coin collecting?

Coin collecting – or ‘numismatics’, to use its technical term – can be a very rewarding past time. We know of many collectors who have taken up collecting after inheriting a collection from their family, or maybe they have found a treasure in their pocket or received coins as a gift.

Coin collecting is certainly a hobby that unites the generations in a shared fascination with the past – and did you know it is one of the world’s oldest hobbies?

Whatever type or period of coinage you enjoy, coin collecting combines the thrill of the chase with a thirst for digging deep into history – Once the hobby of Emperors and Kings, now everyone can enjoy this wonderful trip into history.

As a collector, you will become part of a wider community of coin enthusiasts who are more than happy to share information and expertise. You can also draw on organisations like local Numismatic societies who offer exceptional knowledge of coins.

If you would like to get started in collecting, we can help come and see us at a local coin fair where you can hold history in your hands before you decide on purchasing.
