With so many varities of coins available, sometimes just trying to figure out what coins to collect can be overwhelming. I have made it easy on myself by giving myself a monthly budget. One month I will add a few key dates I'm missing, and some months I will add a new silver 1 ounce bullion coin. Over the years my collection has grown in different directions, but always steadily growing. Lately I've been replacing Lincon cents from my 1909 to present collection with BU condition coins. It is getting more expensive the older they are, but it will be a fantastic collection when it's finished. When you think about which which direction your collection should take, just browse through a copy of the Numismatist from the ANA. I have always found new roads for my collection to take from the freat articles. Have fun building your coin collection!
