Introduced to coins, medals, and tokens when I was young, I have always had an interest in numismatics and exonumia. I enjoy collecting, but must do so on a limited budget. This limits me on my options to lower priced items. When it comes to coins, I generally stick by 20th and 21st century circulating coins. I also enjoy finding old Dansco and Whitman albums for these coins and "filling the holes."
Collecting exonumia gives me more variety in my collection, and gives me a different thrill than just "oh I need this date now' for a variety of coins I already have many of. There is also plenty of reference media available regarding most collectable coinages. There isn't as much regarding the far more vast category of medals and tokens. I am hoping to offer some information regarding my interests, and help others looking to expand their collections. The list will expand as I find time and more inventory. Please let me know if you have anything to add!
