How long have you been a collector for? What/who got you in to coin collecting? Was it a particular coin/find?

Is this a hobby that you wish to keep in the family?

Why coins? (history, social significance, the design) What is more important to you, the design/artistry, or the story behind it?

What are your motivations for collecting coins?

How do you collect? (Year, monarch, country) Do you have one big collection, or lots of smaller collections within a collection?

Do you have a favourite piece? Is it already in your collection?

What would you like to add to your collection? Where do you find the coins? (Do you have a shopping list?!)

With that in mind, do you think your collection with ever be complete?

Would you ever like to design a coin? What would you like to see represented on a coin that hasn’t already been?
