It was my friend's mom's large selection of personalized coins that encouraged me to start investing on gold coins. It's her hobby to collect coins and she's been doing it since she was very young. She started it when she inherited a few rare coins from her grandfather. Their family is rich so she can afford the expensive hobby. She has a lot of rare coins in her collection and if you know coins, you'd drool. Right now I have a few pieces. Every time I have extra money, I try to buy a coin or two. They are not the rare coins that big time collectors have but it's a start. At least I have something to leave my kids and grandkids.
