What was Your First Coin?

Recommended Posts

I just looked back in my Apmex order history. And I remember this was my first coin I bought anywhere. At least in my current iteration as a collector. Dec 2015

I didn't know what I was doing. [still dont'] Anyway, I sold it a few months later and went to collecting silver. More my budget. :)

mine was a 2017 canadian maple. It's at the bottom of my first (and only!) full tube :)

Note- thats since bullion / stacking side of collecting started last year. I did collect weird stuff as a child. It turns out when i checked it all, it's all cupro-nickel :(

Think I've got a half or full sovereign floating about somewhere that I was given as a birthday present in 2008... 

First silver was this year's Tower Bridge "Landmarks of Britain" coughcoughlandmarksoflondoncoughcough coin... vat and all :D

@JohnAnsink a good guess for sure...but there are 3 answers technically...

The first silver coin I ever bought was a silver crown

The first ever coin I owned was before I was but a twinkle in the milkman's eye - a half krugerrand bought for me* by my Grandfather

*although technically I only own half of it as it is shared with my brother

The first ever silver coin I got my hands on was a walking liberty half dollar (1944) given to me by my grandfather when I was 5 years old.
