More about Coins

To those looking in on the hobby, coin collecting may not seem like a valuable use of time. But for those who live in 2012, but are more fascinated by a 1930 penny than anything else, it makes perfect sense. Searching for the right coins to add to a collection, whether they are rare Australian coins, like the 1927 florin, or something more exotic from further way, is one of the most rewarding parts of the hobby. But for those coins that are near impossible to find, eBay represents a new frontier. Thousands of rare coins can be found on eBay at any given time, making it unnecessary to travel to coin shows at every opportunity, which can mean more time to create a better collection.
