Commemorative Coin Collections

      My Hobbies

 Numismatic (Coin Collections)

Do you have a large collection of coins but do not know how to properly store them?

You’ve come to the right place. This site will display all my coin collections and some commemorative coins purchased from the Indian Mints throughout India and also through Reserve Bank of India .You’ll find a compilation of numismatic information, of my collection assembled over a period of 3 + years. Got this hobby site working due to my project on, Digital Marketing held at Don Bosco Center for Learning, due for submission in the month of September 2015

This is quiet an expensive hobby, but got me interested as the Commemorative Coins sold are of different denomination ie from as low as INR 2/- going up to INR 1000/- with odd figures of INR 60/- and even INR 150/- .

All my collections are coins pertaining to India and also MADE IN INDIA.

Buying Coins in India?

This is quiet an issue. You have to continuously keep your eyes open to advertisements in the leading Newspapers, Times of India being one of them. The other option is to visit the Indian mint site. All this is done through a booking window for a short period of 2-3 month. Once the booking offer is closed, getting a the required coin is a difficulty. One could send the demand draft even after the issue is closed, but it is left to good luck is you receive a set of your requirements of the booked coins. All applications for new coins advertised are to be sent by post and delivery of these coins, I must admit takes even up to 7 months.

Whether it’s a partial collection or just an accumulation of Commemorative coins I have laying around I have no intention of sell this small but unique collection. I hope some of my friends from other states  do gift me coins  as I am now looking for circulated coins as well. I have 2 albums which I will display as I have to arrange the same . these are all the coins I collected on my way to work, going by bus  and collections all the ones that are new to my collections. I have collected a few by buying but not spent a lot on   Indian coins  I  have not seen before.  the old .2paise, .5 paise 10 Paise & 25 paise are cutely crafted.  Though  I possess a few of these I an still on the lookout for these coins of small denominations as these are not available and out of circulation.

You will be fascinated by the different circulated coins collected by me  of denomination of INR 1, 2, 5, & even 10/-  which will be displayed soon .  The old silver  coin of Rs 10/- is available  for sale on ebay, olx and other online sites, which I may consider buying.

Please explore and enjoy.

Here you can learn the  way I  store my coins, along with their pros and cons.

One of the most popular types of coin storage is a 2″X2″ cardboard container lined with clear mylar also known as Coin Flips. These Coin Flips comes  in various sizes starting with 17.5 mm and going up to 35.00 mm.

The coin is placed on the mylar or Coin Flips, and the case is folded and stapled shut. With this method, the coin will not slide around in its case while handled. this also protects the coins from humidity, scratches & helps retain the toning.

Pros: Inexpensive, easy to label, compact.
Cons: Coin may be scratched by staples, the plastic in close proximity to the coin can possibly contribute to toning and spotting.
