New to coin collecting

| Evan


My name is Evan Franklin. I'm 34 and live in North Pole, AK. I am new to coin collecting, beyond the jars of spare change in my office that is. I remember buying some French Francs when I was 10 for a class project about France. I still have that assortment today. In 1998, I received a US Mint proof set in 1998 plus a Silver dollar for a graduation gift. I also have a few fancier Canadian coins.

I'm not quite where to start, but I joined ANA, bought Coin Collecting for Dummies, and ordered the "kids" kit from the US Mint. I'll also check out our one coin shop, next time I'm in Fairbanks. There appears to be a wealth of information on this website too, so I'll start looking through that, and re-read the "10 Rules."
