The study of coins, and the collecting of coins, is as old as money itself. Some people collect coins for their elegance, beauty, creativity, or rarity, while others collect misprints, ancient coins, or coins based solely on their value. Whatever the collector type, and whatever the coin, numismatists the world over dedicate themselves to the study of coins and currency and many even spend great amounts of money on special coins they wish to add the their collections.
