Five Popular Coin Forums You Should Check Out
Several weeks back, I took a look at five coin blogs you should be reading. For some time I have wanted to do a few follow up posts on similar topics. There are many excellent resources for coin collectors on the internet and many more surfacing each day. Today I will highlight five popular coin forums.
Forums can be a great place to meet like minded collectors and discuss coin related issues in an open format. Membership on the forums is free and usually only takes a few minutes. On all of the forums, you will have the opportunity to find a lot of knowledgeable people with incredible collections. If you don't already regularly visit a coin forum, here are five of the most popular that you can check out.
Collector's Universe Forums - Collector's Universe is the parent company of PCGS. The U.S. Coin Forum is probably the most active of the coin forums with new threads popping up every few minutes. If news is breaking, its already being discussed here.
Collector's Society Message Boards - Collector's Society is run by Certified Collectibles Group, the parent company of NGC. This forum is not as active, but there is a useful "Ask NGC" section where you can get quick answers from NGC related to submissions.
Coin Talk - Quality forum with a smaller but active membership. Discussions are usually thought provoking and insightful. They offer a free advertising section for members.
Coin People - Another quality forum with smaller membership ranks. They offer numerous specialized numismatic forums for country specific coins, exonumia, errors and varieties.
Coin Community Forum - Part of the Coin Community Family, centered around education and family friendly interaction. This is a fairly active forum with a larger membership.
