Coin education as a young numismatist

I was introduced to the numismatic community through friend and mentor Lee Minshull in May of last year. It all began when I purchased silver, ninety percent coins in as an investment but it sparked my interest in numismatics and coin collecting. From that day forward I have always been trying to better educate myself in numismatics. Being a young numismatist myself, I have found that there are many great resources to help further my education.
