Still get excited after all these years collecting coins

01 Apr


The realization is that not everyone shares the same interests.  When talking coins with people ‘outside’ the numismatic field, I have found people get bored easily.  That’s the basis for NwPlaza’s Coin Collecting Shop at 1413 C Street.  When we first opened in 2013 inside ‘The Academy’ downtown Vancouver, our idea was to bring coin collectors together to buy/sell/trade and just show off their collections.  As collectors, we’re excited for the April 12 -13 Antique Coin Bonanza and showing off some of the Mexican silver and gold coins we’ve acquired over the years.  I once heard a wife refer to herself as a “coin collector’s widow” meaning she figuratively has lost her husband to the hobby.  Perhaps it’s the hope of stumbling upon that one treasure, the coin that is the king of all coins.  What keeps you interested in the hobby of coin collecting?
