Rare and Beautiful World Coins
By Charles Roman
Ideas for Collecting Coins from Around the World

Collecting world is a fun hobby that gives you the feeling of travelling the globe vicariously through your coins. A collection of world offers a unique insight into the culture and history of other countries, and encourages you to learn at least a few words of a variety of different languages. World can also be an interesting step into the world of coin collecting, because it is a relatively inexpensive pastime. Many of the are still in circulation, making them easy to find and light on the pocketbook to buy. Oftentimes, children start their coin collections with world for this reason.

Ideas for Collections of World Coins
While some people may enjoy collecting world haphazardly, simply enjoying whatever they happen to come across, others prefer more of a challenge. While it may be impossible to collect every coin from around the world, you can create a lovely coin collection that is challenging and fun to complete by selecting a particular theme to pursue.

The most obvious theme for a collection of world is a concentration on a specific country. If that idea seems a little bit stale, you can also broaden your collection by concentrating on a region or aspect of a country. For example, you could start a world collection from South American countries, nations where English is a national language, or from island nations.

Another interesting possibility is to combine two interests by concentrating on a favorite thing or hobby outside of coin collecting. For example, a coffee lover might collect world

from countries that produce coffee beans, or an auto enthusiast might collect from countries that produce his or her favorite automobiles.

You don't have to use countries as a central point of your world collection, however; you can also build a collection around a specific motif on the themselves. Some people have collections of featuring a particular animal, such as an eagle or a panda bear. Others concentrate on flowers, trees, or birds. Someone interested in military history might enjoy a world collection featuring famous fighters, for example.

Another idea for starting a collection of world is to concentrate your efforts on from a particular year. Some people really enjoy collecting world that were minted in their birth year, or which commemorate another date that is important to them.

If none of those ideas appeal to you, perhaps you'd like to concentrate on a specific metal used to make the world coins. While precious metals like gold and platinum are obvious choices, some people enjoy putting together collections of world minted from common nickel or copper.

If any of these ideas have inspired you to start a collection of world coins, you might want to pause a moment before you start building a collection, and check out the prices and availability of matching your desired theme. It won't be much fun to start a collection of gold bullion coins, only to realize that you can't afford more than one or two pieces. A few minutes with a world catalog will help you decide if your ideal theme for a collection is also feasible with your budget.
