Editor's Preface

Congratulations! You've stumbled upon a mother lode of practical information about coin searching and collecting. The author, EJ Gold, gives you all the tools you need to get started with coin collecting and you can start today searching your very own pocket change!

But why would anyone want to start collecting coins in this day and age? Coins nowadays seem almost irrelevant, if not downright old-fashioned. A full list of benefits can be found on page 13. Coinology combines zen mindfulness with the chance to make an honest buck from an occasional valuable discovery. It is a very rewarding avocation and can be thoroughly addictive!

Before you lies a spring board, a way to get jump started in this pursuit. May you fly high, dive deep and then share your findings with others. Coinology is above all an adventure, enjoy!

As an adjunct to these writings we highly recommend the book Strike It Rich with Pocket Change: Error Coins Bring Big Money by Potter and Allen. Like this book it's full of information and also has pictures of the various error coins to help you get started..
