Where can I advertise my website or coins that I have for sale?

We have a set of categorized Advertising Forums for just this purpose.


However members must be a member for 30 days and have 25 posts prior to buying/selling on the site. This INCLUDES deals made within all coin forums.


Is this site just about coins?

The main focus of this site is coins, banknotes and other numismatic discussions. We are, however, an online community and understand that people want to get to know each other and have discussion not related to just coins. We have created an area of the forums just for that purpose. Information on how to participate in this area can be found on This Page.


What else does this site offer?

We have many things to offer besides just talking about coins. We have many Voting Competitions such as our Popular Coin Idol, the Popular Note Competition, the Ugly Coin Competition and the Coin Grading Challenge. We also have a Coin Museum, various Articles, a number of Contests and Giveaways and much, much more. Please take a look around and you will find many things to see and do.
