One of the most popular Hobbies around the world is certainly collecting coins. It is often mistakenly called numismatics, but this title is not quite correct. What exactly is different collecting coins from numismatics? This will tell the country of the Soviets.

Numismatics - this name is not a hobby, but a whole historical discipline that studies the history of coinage and money circulation. So the numismatist is not a passionate coin collector, but a person who studies them from a scientific point of view. And collectors of coins are more often interested in the rarity of a coin and its artistic merits, rather than its scientific value.

But not all collectors can be called simple gatherers. Often people involved in coin collecting, interested in numismatics, because most collectors are trying to learn more about the objects that make up their collection of whatever they collect. True collecting is not mindless collecting different items. It broadens the mind of man   and helps him become a specialist in the fields of knowledge associated with his collection.

The line between numismatics and coin collecting to have a very hard. Collecting coins (numismatic collecting   ) - only one of the visible aspects of numismatics, in fact this science is much wider and deeper than a usual hobby. And numismatists can be called only those collectors of coins that do not just collect all the coins in a row, just to replenish the collection, but are interested in their history and origin. At the same time, not every numismatist (meaning a scientist) will necessarily collect coins.

Often the coin collecting starts with small, seemingly purchase. For example, guests from abroad, each bringing a gift of unusual local coin. Or a handful of little things, which gave delivery to the store, suddenly there is an old Soviet coin. Such findings can prompt interest in collecting coins. which over time can grow into an entertaining hobby.

Usually the newly minted collectors include a collection of all gets them coins indiscriminately, but in most cases, over time, collecting coins becomes more orderly, more narrowly specialized. For example, a collector might decide to focus on coins of a particular historical era or topic, minted in a particular country/countries or unusual coins   (for example, minted with errors).

A significant part of the collection often consists of coins issued in small editions and is centered around a specific event (collectible coins ). Usually such coins are released by the state or private banks, they are minted mainly from precious metals (gold, silver, palladium).

For collection coins include commemorative coins and commemorative coins. Commemorative coins released into circulation to commemorate a specific event. Among other coins, these include miner coins. minted from the metal of the first alluvial gold in the river or just open pit. Another type commemorative coins — gift coins. They were not released into circulation, and gave to various people in memory of some event or as a reward. Commemorative coins   minted to commemorate the anniversary dates - the anniversaries of certain events. In most cases, such coins are nominal, but they are not always issued in real monetary circulation.

Coin collecting as a hobby has only one drawback — it requires significant cash outlay. Alas, the most valuable specimens for a collector are valuable and in the literal sense of the word. It is especially difficult to get rare and old coins.

First, the high cost of this hobby can not be felt, because the initial collection is usually collected from the coins received from friends and acquaintances. Then the collector "grows" and starts to exchange coins with other collectors — but such "barter" also does not represent the true value of coins. But sooner or later there comes a time when the correct coin you can only buy, and often for big money. There was even a professional merchants of coins. They made trade in rare and old coins their main source of income.

And yet, despite its high prices, collecting coins is a fascinating and interesting hobby that brings moral satisfaction and expand their horizons. The only thing we can advise is carefully weigh all the "pros" and "cons" when buying rare or vintage coins   and preliminary to find out its real market value, so as not to get trapped.
