Your first step should be to visit your local coin and stamp collecting store. There you can speak with the other patrons, who can give you insight on how to get started. If there is not a stamp collecting store in your area, you can always look for a website devoted to the hobby to get the information you need.

When it comes to starting your collection, there are several routes you can take. You can choose to buy a starter set, which will give you some of the more common coins to start your collection with. These are generally affordable and easy to pick up. But if you are looking to start a very specific collection, it might be more cost effective for you to just pick up the coins that you want.

No matter how you choose to start your collection, it is always important to do your research.
