Weekly Blog Roundup, Coin Collecting Edition

This article was written by in Link Sharing. 4 comments.

I went to my first show for coin collectors today. I’ve been getting into this new hobby over the past several months. It’s a hobby for fun, not necessarily investment. While I’ve been reading up on the activity in the past week, I also came across unrelated posts I enjoyed from the blogs in the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond.

* AllFinancialMatters explains why 12b fees are evil.
* Blueprint for Financial Prosperity has some tips for understanding your financial fortress.
* FiveCentNickel presents 12 simple ways to save money on utilities and the planet.
* Free Money Finance advises when to pay off your mortgage.
* Mighty Bargain Hunter looks at the latest American savings rate report, as did I.
* J.D. Roth shares self-defeating blogging behaviors on Meta. J.D. normally writes on Get Rich Slowly.

Congratulations the the money bloggers mentioned in articles in the New York Times and US News & World Report!

I started collecting coins about this time last year and finished up a complete set of Franklin Halves (VF and higher) this past October. Now I’m working on a complete set of Lincoln cents from 1909 to present with all mintmarks.

I first started coin collecting as a child, but got away from it, eventhough I was still interested with it.

Later, I got into metal detecting, and finding cool older coinage, got me write back into it. It’s a great hobby, and something I like to share with my kid as well.

Lately (also due to metal detecting), I’ve been into collecting trade tokens, super fun stuff.

I do like collecting coins, and now I have many collections. I manage my collecion with a great tool called Collection Studio. It help me to track my collection items and share them with my friends.
