Online resources bring the world of numismatics to novice and experienced hobbyists
The desire to have the grandest coin collection is an exceptional goal—one that can only be obtained through acute collecting skills and numismatic knowledge. Those who are extremely passionate about collecting will go to the ends of the earth to secure the best coins possible in order to build extraordinary sets. There are others who love collecting, but may not currently have the money to spend thousands of dollars on one rare coin. And then there are those who are just beginning to explore the finer aspects of the coin collecting world. Yet, despite the wide range of numismatic knowledge amongst hobbyists, there is one commonality: a passion for coin collecting and the desire to know more.

The proliferation of online resources has made it easy to build your knowledge base and become more deeply involved in numismatic pursuits. Today, the Internet is a place where you can acquire new coins or get interesting information about a favorite piece. It can be the source of a wealth of information, networking opportunities and other resources that you can use to help focus your collecting efforts.

The question is, how can you, the collectors, gather together in a fun, friendly environment where you converse intelligently about numismatics? Where can you share your wisdom with others to grow the field, show off your collections and gain numismatic knowledge—and get it all in one easily accessible place?
