What Is Type Collecting?

Type collecting is a popular way to define how many coin collectors choose the direction of their coin collection. It is one of the easiest ways for amateur and experienced coin collectors to build their collection. Read on to learn more about type collecting and how it influences coin collections.

When a collector chooses coins from a specific era or country, then they are choosing a type of coin. For example, a collector could find 1 coin example for every denomination, design, and metal that was made in 2000. This collection might include foreign coins as well as American. That same collector may choose to collect examples throughout history that were made in only 1 country. The possibilities are endless when it comes to type collecting.
