The numismatist is not just a coin collector. This is the person who first of all is fond of history. It is worthwhile to understand that every numismatist has his own story. Some specialize in coins of a certain country and the corresponding epoch. Others focus on popular films, olympiads or wildlife. As you know, rarity determines the cost.

On one side the queen is depicted, on the reverse - the legendary "power ring". Later in the world came out coins depicting the main characters of the novel.

In order not to leave prints on the polished surface, coins are stored in special albums. There are leaf, tablet and gift albums. The first have a large number of cells, low cost and are made of plastic. As for the flatbeds - clamshells, they are aimed at a certain series or release. The latter include more expensive albums. They have a leather or leatherette cover. So the album NUMIS will cost 1550 rubles. There is a protective cassette (shuber). It is possible to expand by inserting additional sheets into a 4-ring rectangular mechanism.
There are a lot of varieties of loops for numismatists. From compact pocket assistants to oversized professional magnifying glass microscopes that display an image on a computer screen. I in my article will focus on the old - good classics, since personally for myself I would choose a magnifying glass with a handle. It lies comfortably in the hand, and looks aesthetically pleasing. If you wish, you can even light a fire;) I found a similar option on 4glaza.ru. The product has the number 17-65. Article: 67420.
Finally, pay attention to the reference literature on numismatics, because the thematic book is an excellent gift for the numismatist. On Ozone came across a book called "100 most expensive and rare coins." It turns out that the publishing house has a series of similar books. You can find literature dedicated to coins of Russia or the USSR. It was printed only recently in 2015.
