Your Coin Collecting Starter Kit

Coin collecting has long been a popular hobby, which attracts people for a variety of reasons. Some collectors are interested in the history of the coins, for example, while others are hoping to amass a valuable collection to sell off at a later date. Still others might just enjoy spending time with their children through a shared hobby. But no matter why you start, every budding collector needs a few basic coin supplies.

First on your list should be a couple of coin holders. These items will both protect your coins and allow you to show them off — and that's the whole point, isn't it?

Next, coin folders are great for beginning collectors, as they typically involve only two to three pages, which is a lot easier to fill than a whole album. These are also often only made for one specific type of coin (i.e. quarters), which can help to narrow your search.

Of course, if you think you're ready for the real deal, you should look no further than the classic coin album, the best way to truly showcase a collection. If you don't know where to start, consider the extremely popular Dansco coin album collection.
