I am also fairly new (collecting since oct. last year) , but if you have any questions on how to start a collection you can ask me!
Some tips: at first you can focus on a specific type of collections (ex. Morgan dollars
date-date or pennies or wheat cents date-date)
Choose coins that are in good condition and their details aren't worn off. Store coins appropriately: Iron and steel coins can rust. The danger in plastic storage is that if you get PVC (polyvinylchloride) on your coins it's very hard to get off. It's a common additive in plastic. Invest in an album. Some coin flaps can be certified for 0% PVC but if you're not sure, always ask.
And always wear gloves!
Have a good day!
