Holiday Gift Guide | New Kid’s Coin Collecting Series Review

When my husband was a young boy, he enjoyed collecting coins with his grandfather. He was very excited to pass on the tradition with our own six year old son when he discovered that there is a new kid’s coin collecting series.

He started teaching my son the basics with A Kid’s Guide to Collecting Coin which is an excellent way for children to learn about this fun hobby. It is full of facts and is presented in an interesting way that got my son’s interest from the start. It has stories behind coins from the penny to the half dollar and dollar. My son especially liked that it has coin tricks such as the “mysterious coin fold” which he learned and performs for a spell bound audience of his younger siblings and friends. I appreciate that this book is easy to read and is very informative yet it is still appealing for children of all ages. I especially value that this has been a wonderful way for my husband and son to bond over a common interest.

There are several kid-friendly coin folders available that include:

  • Jefferson Nickels for Kids
  • Lincoln Cents for Kids
  • National Park Quarters for Kids
  • State Quarters for Kids

Inspired by the Warman’s National Park Quarters for Kids, my son is eagerly searching for National Park quarters. He was really excited when he realized that the Virginia National Park features the Shenandoah National Park where we visited for our summer vacation and he can’t wait to add it to his collection. This Collector’s Folder is fun and educational as it includes facts about the states and National Parks. It is quite sturdy and keeps the coins securely in place.

Proudly released by Krause Publications, A Kid’s Guide to Collecting Coins ($9.99) and Kids Coin Folders ($4.99 each) are currently available and would make a great gift idea!
