I am happy to hear that you are interested in collecting coins from the United States.

One way that you might have fun doing that is to become a Pen Pal with another kid about your age in the United States that is also interested in collecting coins.

Get your parents to help you search the pen pal sites for someone suitable for you and maybe you can trade coins with them.

You might even want to have several pen pals from different countries and collect lots of coins from different countries while at the same time helping them do the same.

Maybe someone else has some other options for you.

How about it everyone? Can anyone help Wout get started collecting American coins?

I don't like trading with people that i don't now.
Thank you very much for the tips but i think that i can't get a collection of american coins.

I would be more than happy to send you a set of American coins. If you are interested, you can email me for more information at

Please be assured that I will not contact you again if I do not hear from you and that I will do nothing more than send you the coins.
Thanks, PML

Your English is okay. It was easy to understand you though you do need practicing. As for collecting in general and coins in particular, that is a nice idea. I hope for you to succeed in it and I wish you best of luck with that!
