I have been a coin collector since I was in high school and that was almost twenty years ago. It all started with collecting local coins and which are still in circulation during that time. It never came to my mind to collect old coins and foreign coins, not until when I had a college professor in one of my minor subjects. She shared and showed us her coin collections. It was then that I got more interested in collecting different kinds of coins. At present I have a Philippine coin that is 97 years old. I also have foreign coins like silver canadian maple leaf coin, US dollar coins and many more.
