10. I used to collect as a kid...
I do have them still stashed away in a closet. Have a few old silver dollars and things, but I'd bet the whole thing wouldn't be worth $100.

My suggestion would be to not fall for all the stuff that's made for collectors, especially recent stuff like the state quarters or presidential dollars or whatnot. Just way too many people collecting them now for them ever to be worth much of anything. NEVER buy anything off TV as an investment. I'd suggest that investing in fewer old coins would probably pay off better in the long run, and probably be more interesting, too.

Tell friends that you're collecting coins, so if they see any funky old coins in their change to set them aside for you. There are still a fair number of silver dimes and quarters out there, scarce nickels and pennies even, plus the odd foreign coins that end up here somehow.
