Thematic (or topical) collecting is very popular in the stamp community. There are collectors and clubs for a wide range of subjects, from butterflies to lighthouses and from royalty to astronomy. In the numismatic world, collecting by theme is not as popular or well publicized, but there are still many opportunities to build a collection based on a certain topic, and many collectors who build such collections. In this article we will take a look at some areas of banknote collecting that are likely to give a thematic collector the most opportunity to find examples with a certain theme.

Old Russian money and coins

To those who are unfamiliar, coin collecting and paper money collecting may seem as though they are one in the same but what they don’t know is they are more different than they could imagine.

The premise is similar in the sense that one has embarked on a mission to collect as much historical currency as humanly possible. The difference, beyond the obvious physical state, is quite extensive but yet simple when observing these primary differences:

  • Comparatively, paper currency is easier to store than coins as it requires less space.
  • There are a greater number of coins available in the world… Full article at the source>

At the ANA’s World’s Fair of Money in Rosemont, Illinois, last year, I had the privilege of attending a Society of Paper Money Collector’s meeting, during which a presentation on Confederate paper money was delivered. Afterward the floor was opened to a Q&A session, during which one particular question caught my… Full article at the source>

New Collectors.com Lets You Quickly Find
$1 Billion Of Coins, Banknotes And Other Collectibles

(Newport Beach, California) — Imagine the convenience of finding every coin, banknote or other collectible item you want that is currently available for sale online, all in one place.  That place now is Collectors.com (www.Collectors.com), a new, one-stop website that instantly provides information on the availability of more than 9 million collectibles currently offered for sale.

“This is a fantastic new, easy-to-use tool to find virtually every online listing for collectible items you’re seeking.  You no longer have to endure time-consuming and scattered hunts on multiple websites,” explained David Hall, Founder and President of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLCT).

“As a collector myself, I was blown away by the speed and power of Collectors.com, which allows you to find collectibles using a wide range of filters including price, seller and condition.  If it’s out there, Collectors.com will help you find it,” Hall emphasized.

On its August 27, 2015 launch, Collectors.com was gathering information about collectibles for sale from more than 542 websites involving a total of 53,684 sellers.  These sellers and sites combined for a total of 9,241,446 collectibles with an incredible aggregate value of $1,015,588,542.

Collectors.com launched with aggregated collectibles listings for rare coins, paper money, trading cards, autographs and stamps.  The site plans on expanding to dozens of other popular collectibles categories with future rollouts.

Collectors.com was created because of the frustration collectors often face at having to individually visit and search through dozens of websites, one-at-a-time, to find collectibles.  

Don Willis, President of the Professional Coin Grading Service division of Collectors Universe, explained the website’s origins:  “Everyone collects something.  As an avid collector, I used to spend hours every week searching websites and marketplaces for items I was collecting.  I tried using traditional search tools but they returned volumes of disorganized results that were not helpful in finding what I was searching for.  My searches were time consuming and typically ended in frustration.  The need for a collectibles aggregator was obvious.”

A view of the dedicated coins category on Collectors.com, a website where collectors can quickly find over $1 billion of collectibles offered for sale online.

“We assembled a superb technical team who, combined with the decades of collectibles experience found within Collectors Universe, Inc., created this unique value-added aggregator.  We have been beta testing Collectors.com for the past 8 months within the PCGS (coins) and PSA (cards) divisions of Collectors Universe Inc., and in the process of developing it we have discovered many new and exciting applications that will benefit both buyers and sellers.  Our goal is to add those applications as well as many more collectible categories as quickly as possible,” said Willis.

“Collectors.com does not buy or sell collectibles. It simply facilitates the meeting between the buyer and seller.  For the serious collector, Collectors.com is a powerful search tool which is actively monitoring the Internet.  For the merely curious, Collectors.com offers an exciting opportunity to discover items of potential interest.  For sellers, Collectors.com adds a new platform where thousands of potential buyers can easily find their coins and banknotes, and quickly link to their website for purchase,” he explained.

“Simply stated, the goal of Collectors.com is to list every collectible available anywhere in the world,” emphasized Willis.

An informative video that explains the simple-to-use Collectors.com system can be viewed on the home page, www.Collectors.com.

Collectors.com, patent pending, is a division of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLCT), the parent company of Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), among other leading collecting-based services.
