Like most girls, I prefer shopping over anything else. That was my initial belief before I turned into an avid coin collector. My boyfriend who is a total opposite would always convince me to invest on things instead of spending them away, but I just couldn’t help it. Then, on my 25th birthday, he gave me a silver american eagle coin.
Since that was the first time I saw one, I went to the net to research about it. It turns out that its very valuable, does not circulate easily like normal money, and can be sold to the right buyer for twice its original price. It was the coolest gift I received so far so it made me think about my spending habits. Now, instead of wasting my money, I use it to add to my coin collection.
