Recommended Coin Information Sites
There is a wealth of coin information on the internet.
Believe me, I have checked out my share of these coin sites in my quest to learn everything I can about coins and coin collecting. On this page, I will be recommending the coin links that I think are the most beneficial to you as you begin your new coin collecting hobby. Check back often for updates.
The first two coin sites that I recommend for coin information are non-profit organizations dedicated to educating people about numismatics.
- American Numismatic Association
The ANA was founded in 1891. Here is their mission statement as taken directly from their site:
"The American Numismatic Association is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect money and related items. With nearly 33,000 members, the Association serves the academic community, collectors and the general public with an interest in numismatics.
The ANA helps all people discover and explore the world of money through its vast array of programs including its education and outreach, museum, library, publications, conventions and seminars."
- American Numismatic Society
The American Numismatic Society(ANS) was organized in 1858 and incorporated in 1865 in New York State and operates as a research museum. Here is their mission statement:
"The mission of The American Numismatic Society is to be the preeminent national institution advancing the study and appreciation of coins, medals and related objects of all cultures as historical and artistic documents, by maintaining the foremost numismatic collection and library, by supporting scholarly research and publications, and by sponsoring educational and interpretive programs for diverse audiences."
