Coin Collecting and Coronavirus

| copper coin collector

Hey everyone, it's been a while...

Recently the world as we know it has been flipped upside down by the 'Coronavirus' or COVID-19. It has even affected the relatively small hobby of coin collecting. Coin shops around us have undoubtedly been closed, and many of us are probably quarantined. Still, there are still ways to enjoy our hobby from home. For example, collectors can still order coins online from sites like ebay. We can also spend this time reading up on the hobby to gain knowledge. Another way to pass time, which I have found enjoyable, is looking at our collections. Some of our coins may have collected dust, forgotten in some corner of a safe. While looking through my collection I found a silver Roosevelt dime, dated 1956. I remembered finding this coin in a coin roll over 4 years ago. I think it was the first silver coin I had ever found in change. I remember being so proud of that dime. Anyways, you might find a coin you forgot you owned, which is always a nice surprise.


Stay healthy, and thanks for reading...

I have at least 700.00 of rolled change to look through and put in flips. I'm also taking the ANA diploma course. The fun never ceases!

I am definitely doing more coin reading and coin organizing. The buying has also not appreciably dropped as I by the majority of coins from ebay anyway. But it will be good when we stabilize and can get back to the new normal.
