For most of us, our interest in money is earning it and then spending it – any form of legal currency is acceptable; be it coins or bank notes. The nearest that we come to collecting it might be when we have enough to put on deposit in a bank or invest it in stocks or such like.

Not If You Are A Collector

Collectors can be obsessive people whose whole world seems to revolve around their particular collection. However, they do tend to be somewhat gregarious in nature and get great delight in showing off their collections. They even join organized groups of like minded collectors and give important sounding names to their collecting obsession.

A philatelist has always been the name for anyone who collects postage stamps; likewise, a collector of coins is known as a numismatist. It should be noted that these names actually apply to both the act of collecting and the study of the object(s) themselves. Thus, you could be a numismatist because of your wealth of knowledge about coins (even if you do not own any).

Originally, numismatics referred to the study and/or collection of coins, bank notes and medals but, round about the 1970’s, collectors of bank notes started to call themselves notaphilists and referred to the money they were collecting as currency – this is despite “legal currency” being both notes and coins. Additionally, what they are looking for in their collections are the unusual, historically important and generally rare examples. They are only interested in legal currency as a means towards acquiring their collectable currency.

Where Can They Buy Their Collectables?
