When you venture into collecting gold or starting a rare coin collection, you may start hearing some lingo that you are not familiar with. One of them is probably “numismatics.” This is the study and collecting of money. The currency collected may be coins, tokens, paper money, and other related objects. Numismatists are students or collectors of coins who have a broad knowledge of money. Their expertise is utilized to resolve debts and exchange goods. What sets this study apart is that the value of money that is conferred by law is not a part of numismatics. Numismatic value is known as collector value and pertains to everything in excess of traditional popular monetary values.
