Since there is one in the Ancients section, we need for the non-ancient coin collector. So what are your 2021 collection goals?

My 2021 goals are actually simple.

1) I want to do a slabbed 7070 (no gold collection)
2) complete the slabbed IHC collection

Compared to prior years this is a small goal but it won't be cheap.

Let see what those goals are? We'll revisit at the end of 2021 to see how you all did

1. Fill the last six core Dansco album holes (7000-3, 7070-1, 8100-2)
2. Finish the extended part of the PCGS Ike set (2013-P Proof, 2015 P/D/S-PR/S-RP)
3. Buy whatever appeals to me from 2021 US Mint offerings.

Keep working on my type set! I've done pretty well in the last year and want to keep it going. The problem is I still need like almost 2 dozen coins, and only have 3 on my watchlist. Not due to price, but due to the fact that I can't find a coin that I like. With the early bust stuff they either have poor surfaces, poor strikes, or rim bruises I want to avoid, and finding coppers I like has been an actual nightmare.

Off-load thousands and thousands of cull wheat cents, thereby tidying things up for better focus on organizing and adding to my toned coin collection. That would be toning of the 'natural' nature vs. baked potato cruises.

My goal is to continue to collect silver coins from around the world (and perhaps the occasional gold piece). Right now I am focusing on the larger silver coins. Maybe also sell off some base metal coinage, as that stuff doesn't really do it for me anymore.

I was afraid to put that on the list. I really hope they get here before the year ends.

Tentative goals for 2021;

1) Replace at least a couple of unslabbed pre-1900 7070 coins with slabbed ones.
2) COVID-19 permitting, pick up at least one more dated coin from the 1400s (these tend to come from Europe).
3) Maybe pick up another early US gold commemorative dollar
4) Add a few more crown-sized coins
5) Maybe some more .925 silver coins from the UK

1. Get the rest of the Canadian and US 2020 coins I need and look for 2021 coins once they are out.
2. Work on getting more Canadian Victorian silver.
3. Continue to build out my Morgan dollar collection, focusing on higher grade nicely toned New Orleans mint issues.
4. Expand my banknote collection into US $1 notes.
5. Continue to stoke my older daughter's and nephew's interest in coins.
6. Finally, maybe not a 2021 goal but add a Canada 1948 silver dollar and US 1909-S VDB cent.

There are a lot of $1 US notes you sure you want to open that can of beans?















This is just a tiny subset of all the varieties.

Pretty simple:

Reach 10 ounces of silver

Reach 500 variety coins

The concept of maturity is complex. While one's capacity to be mature can be correlated with age, someone's overall maturity and respect for life is not. Maturity is formed through experience and perception.
Human progress can only be achieved through trial and error.

Continue downsizing my coins I really don't need, organize my Wheat cent collection, work on filling my albums (moved them from folders -US only). We are remodeling a house going from a 2 story 5 bedroom to a 1 story 2 bedroom house so I am going through all the "piggy" banks to cash the coins in. Not much good to keep here as I pull coins before they go into the banks. Get all my foreign coins and tokens into 2 x 2's.

Same as every year, to get at least one more early date variety for my large cent collection.
