Coin collecting as a hobby,
A hobby is a person’s passion – something which has no utility strings attached to it. There are several hobbies and coin-collecting hobby is one of them. It is also called NUMISMATICS. The hobby can be developed to a serious nature requiring lots of time and energy and it has many branches to it.
I am a serious coin collector and I only collect the Indian Coin from year 1835 onwards which is the period when uniform coinage was introduced in India by British Empire.
Basically there is no fixed pattern or rule or guidance rule for those whose hobby is coin collecting. To some people the approach is casual while others are more serious. There are national collectors of coins and others who are interested historically. Some collectors only look around for coins that have an error – which may turn out to be of priceless value after some time.
The great thing about the coin-collecting hobby is that anybody irrespective of age and gender can have a go at it.
I would suggest more people to take up this hobby it will help you learn the History of India at same time it will bring pleasure to you. I have been promoting Numismatics and Stamp collection as an Alternate investment also. I was interviewed by the Daily News paper and also by TV channels. Which I am posting on this website.
