Hi.

I've had a few old foreign coins for many years floating around and never felt the need to start a collection. Until a few months ago when I found a round aust 50 cent coin in my purse, which led me to check its value which led me to read about other coins and now I can't stop thinking about coins.
I found out one of my work colleagues Trigg who is on this forum and introduced me to it was a keen coin collector. Absolutely amazed at how many coins he has but interestingly I have a number of coins that are not on his list.
My intentions are to have a collection of coins that I can pass on to my daughter. I will take, swap or buy anything I don't have but am largely interested in silver coins, pre 1947 ones would be the ones I want most .

Welcome to our world. You are going to love it. Be careful with your coins, however. Since you are living "down under", they can more easily fall out of your pockets. (TIC)

Katie - great name! (my daughters name too)
Try to go for quality as you build your collection. Sometimes the difference of one point on the MS scale can make a coin worth thousands of dollars more. Silver and gold coins will never go out of demand. However as you climb the ladder toward higher value beware of counterfeit coins. The ancient Greeks had a word that is translated into english as sincere. It is more literally translated "without wax". Wax has been used to make gold coins appear without scratches. The art of deception was prevalent throughout the centuries. Some silver coins become tarnished. Some will clean the tarnish off to present the coin as a brilliant uncirculated specimen. If you buy your coins that have been certified by a TPG (third party grading company) they will be able to spot the cleaned coins.

Hi Katie,

Welcome to the CCF.
Good to see you signed up.

So you have some coins I don't have.
I'll expect them to be in the mail tomorrow. LOL

Thanks everyone.
I'm having trouble figuring this forum out, but not only that I just acquired a further 150 roughly, more coins and been too busy checking them out.

Trigger, I need to speak with you, or better still meet with you. I just called work and you are on holidays and so am I. Got some great coins I know you will want. Can I post my email address on here?

Review the RULES you agreed to when you joined. (Especially the Buy/Sell/Trade rules!). Posting personal info on any public forum is not a good idea!

I know it's not a good idea but breathing is becoming not such a good idea these days.

Perhaps trigger can view my email address in my profile.

Thanks.
