"Hobbies are fun but they end up just being a waste of money!"
Well, that hobbies are usually a waste of money is a cliche, and just like most cliches, it has a grain of truth. Of course, spending money on something that makes us feel good, gives us some good time, and keeps us passionate about something, is not something you can really call a waste of money.
Still, you can't deny that most hobbies are very demanding in terms of money, and that once that money is gone, is gone for good.
Good news though: this does not apply to collections. Collecting is a hobby that leaves you with valuable possession. And, among the various types of collecting, Coin Collecting is the one that most of all can be seen as an investment.
