Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you thinking about starting to collect coins as a hobby, or even for an investment. Either way, there are many ways to find the coins that you are looking for.

One way is to go to your local bank and purchase rolls of coins to search. Let your bank know that you are a coin collector, and would like purchase and exchange rolls of coins to search through. They might be able to let you know when someone has turned in a large amount of rolled coins. Searching through rolls of coins can be time consuming, but the joy of finding that one coin that you are looking for will be well worth it. This is a good way to spend an afternoon during the long winter months, when your couped up inside your home.

You can also visit a local coin shop to look at the coins they have to offer. The coin shop should have boxes of coins that you will be able to search. If you're looking to collect coins as an investment, the coin shop can help you with this also. If you're looking to purchase a certain coin, do a little research to know the going price for the coin that you're looking for. You might be able to offer a lower price, if you feel the price is too high. Get to know the employees of the coin shop, this could be a big help on your next visit to the coin shop.

Another great place to find coins to collect is to attend a coin show. The coin show will have many vendors from around the area. This will save you valuable time and money driving from coin store to coin store, looking for coins to purchase. As when you visit a coin store, do a little research to know the going price of the coin(s) that you are looking for.

The internet is also a great place to find coins for your collection. There are many online shopping sites such as: Ebay, Amazon, etc. The one draw back to online shopping for a coin(s) is, you do not actually have the coin in your hands to inspect. It might be good to check the return policy of any coin vendor prior to making the purchase.

The one way to collect coins, that most people don't think of doing, is to check the coins in the change that you receive after making a purchase at your local store. You would be very surprised at what you could find on a daily basis.

What ever way you choose to collect coins, you will find it to be enjoyable. Good luck in your search for coins.
