Collecting Coins and Paper Money

Coin Collection

Coins and paper money have played major roles in social and economic history since ancient times – reflecting the art and culture of the issuing country, kingdom or empire. Coins and bank notes are genuine artifacts from those long-ago times – recalling legendary ancient civilizations, the Middle Ages, Colonial America and the birth of our nation, the Civil War period and westward expansion, the 20th century and two world wars...

Coins and currency predate today's checkbooks, credit cards and electronic transfers – from a time when coinage and paper money were the primary tools of economic activity – and when the size, beauty and artistic excellence of coinage and bank notes reflected their paramount importance. You can recall and enjoy that bygone era of coins and currency when you collect these prized artifacts of American and world history.
