Thanks Eric. As John said, you need 50 post first. Then e-mail Bobby131313 and just let him know that you would like to set up your own gallery. The country names I have added from Publisher.

....i am actively collecting Australian coins....what, in your opinion, would be a good type for me to start collecting?



My advice would be to first get a copy of " A pocket guide to Australian Coins and Banknotes" by Greg McDonald.

Bigfella, a member of the forum can help you with this.

After that, I would suggest collecting the normal circulating coins at face value, until you decide what you like the most to collect. You'll find the Australian 50c have a lot of variety of designs as well as the $1 coins. You could try and collect 40 x 5 cent pieces all with different dates , but I find that less interesting than collecting different designs from around the world. Actually, I do have a 5c collection as well as the rest of the denominations, LOL.
I started with a coin from each year that was circulated and read Maccas book. Now I am finding coins I didnt know about ,Like double bars on 50 cents and wavy 2 on some 1966 20 cent coins. I have even now got some freinds interested in coins. great talking point. Cheers Karen

John - First & foremost you must collect what you like, you'll keep an interest longer, then from there in my personal experience I tried to locate the highest grade possible and figured if I was going to collect coins then I would also try and find / buy the rarest of what I like & that my budget could afford all within the parameters of what I like to collect.
So I the end I do / will enjoyed my hobby immensely while added coins to the collection that will alway's be worth more than I payed, and long term I'm setting up my retirement fund.

I will never forget a story I was only told very recently...

In 1974 a good friend of mine bought a 1930 penny for $3000 dollars... So he picked the rarest of what he like to collect and could afford at the time, now that same 1930 penny is worth $30,000, so as I have mentioned although he bought a coin, he also bought an investment piece.
