What was Your First Coin?

Recommended Posts

I just looked back in my Apmex order history. And I remember this was my first coin I bought anywhere. At least in my current iteration as a collector. Dec 2015

I didn't know what I was doing. [still dont'] Anyway, I sold it a few months later and went to collecting silver. More my budget. :)

mine was a 2017 canadian maple. It's at the bottom of my first (and only!) full tube :)

Note- thats since bullion / stacking side of collecting started last year. I did collect weird stuff as a child. It turns out when i checked it all, it's all cupro-nickel :(

Think I've got a half or full sovereign floating about somewhere that I was given as a birthday present in 2008... 

First silver was this year's Tower Bridge "Landmarks of Britain" coughcoughlandmarksoflondoncoughcough coin... vat and all :D

@JohnAnsink a good guess for sure...but there are 3 answers technically...

The first silver coin I ever bought was a silver crown

The first ever coin I owned was before I was but a twinkle in the milkman's eye - a half krugerrand bought for me* by my Grandfather

*although technically I only own half of it as it is shared with my brother

The first ever silver coin I got my hands on was a walking liberty half dollar (1944) given to me by my grandfather when I was 5 years old.

Still with me

Technically, alcohol is a solution..

'It [socialism] poses a growing threat, however unintentional, to the freedom of this country, for there is no freedom where the State totally controls the economy. Personal freedom and economic freedom are indivisible. You can’t have one without the other. You can’t lose one without losing the other.'

"There is no such thing as public money, there is only taxpayers' money"

"Lenin is certainly right. There is no subtler or more severe means of overturning the existing basis of society (destroy capitalism) than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and it does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose."
