    Great gift for new collector

    This kit is a great way to get started collecting. My husband was given a bunch of coins his father had collected through the years but hadn't done anything with them. Now he's putting them in folders, learning how to care for them, and deciding which coins he may want to buy more of. I think the best part is the NumisMaster subscription. Not only can he check the value of the coins on the website, he has created his own online inventory. It is well worth the price. And it comes in a nice box so it's a nice looking gift.

    All you need to get started!

    This set is one of the best all-in-one packages I've seen. The subscription to Coins magazine was a real plus, especially since I've been thinking about subscribing to it, after learning it was done by the same group that does Numismatic News. I really dig the coin folder too - as it is something my nephew and I can use together.

    I wouldn't start anywhere else!

    Krause's the name to trust in coin collecting. Looking forward to the youngins picking up the hobby. I wouldn't start anywhere else.

    A Must for Numismatic Aficionados!

    This kit contains it all. I have always been a fan of Warmans' work in coin collecting, but this is a must-have for every collector, beginner or seasoned!

    Very thorough collection of coins

    I recently gave this as a gift to my husband, who could not have been more enthusiastic. His exploration of this kit has been nothing but positive.

    Great for beginners

    This is a perfect product for people like me who are relatively new to coin collecting. The variety of materials and broad range of topics covered will really help me learn the skills of the hobby and narrow down my collecting focus. Plus, you can't beat the package price - I'm sure these items would be significantly more expensive individually. I recommend it for collectors new and experienced!

    I liked the folder

    I am a younger collector and my parents bought me this set. I like it. The first thing I used is the coin folder, which has a lot of different coins. I need to find an Eisenhower dollar, I have never seen one before!

    Interesting product combination

    I've used a number of Krause Publications products over the years, mostly the Standard Catalog of World Coins and Numismatic News, but many of the elements of this box set were new to me. Coins Magazine is especially intriguing, with monthly U.S. coin pricing and interesting features.
