Legacy is a word that is often used today in regards to our relationships with our children and grandchildren. In this context, gifts for coin collectors could refer to a specific coin given as a gift, like a lower mintage American Silver Eagle, “Grandma collected coins, and I’ll remember her whenever I look at this,” or even the love of coin collecting as a gift itself. Perhaps this present is simply an appreciation of history and family. Remember, the finest collections are curated, matching the coin to a subject or theme that interests the coin's recipient.
In addition to annual holidays like Christmas, we all have birthdays, graduations, births of a child or grandchild, and even retirements that we want to remember for ourselves, our friends, and our loved ones.

Many collectors want to pass along our appreciation of coins, coinage, and history by giving coins as gifts.
