Spalding & District

Coin and Stamp Collecting

Coiins and Stamps This informal group currently meets at the leaders' home in Spalding.

Our purpose is to share information and to buy, sell or exchange stamps, postcards and/or coins. We will
have occasional displays from visiting collectors or our own members. We may also arrange an occasional
visit to stamp &/or coin Fairs.

Stamp collecting, and Coin collecting remain popular hobbies enjoyed worldwide. The collection and study
can be carried out at many levels and does not require great expense to be enjoyable. The study of stamps
and postal history: old envelopes, letters and old postcards, etc., can provide a wonderful insight into social
and world history. Coins seem to be experiencing a revival with more collectors returning to the fold and
great fun can be had sorting your change or a box of foreign coins.

For the beginner some of the meetings may involve discussion about the basics: where to get stamps and
coins, how to look after them, what they are worth, etc., and the different ways of building a collection.
Examples of different types of collection will be shown.

Anyone with an interest in stamps/coins or who collects them or would like to begin is most welcome. We
are a friendly group so why not come along and re-ignite your passion for collecting.
