It's not that old, it's just about 20 years old and it's original value is just 1 US dollar, but because it's made of silver so it's much more expensive. I think it's worth about 50 dollars, but I don't want to sell it now, so it'll worth even more by the time goes.

20 years is not long at all. I guess its worth only silver value unless a limited edition coin. Also recent sliver coins which have been issued for cerculation dont have a high % unlike old coins.

But do you have a pic of it ? It would be cool too see interesting coins and stamps.

By looking at people's post, it looks so common. Though i had never any interest in collecting any type of coins nor even noticed it, seems like i am bit different.

These hobbies need some sort of trigger. Like someone you know collecting it and after looking at their collection you get this feeling wanting to collect. or Something like going to an exibition and then find your self wanting to buy and collect. I know one guy who has started collecting local old coins because he wanted to bond with his 2 kids. Teach them history behind these coins when spend time with them. Few do it as a sort of investment. At least that the reason they have started collecting stamps and bank notes but now they are crazy about it.

Both stamps and coins can be a lucrative hobby. My mom used to collect stamps over a long period of time by purchasing collections. In the end when she had no time longer and had changed her hobby to oil painting, she sold the entire collection of hers for a huge sum of money. Scarcely had she started with oil painting and to our surprise started to exhibit, and then started to sell paintings too. Lately she also got into gold coin collecting. Purchasing gold coins from catalogs with the proceeds from selling paintings. And so it goes on and on. Some people just have a driving force and passion that make them natural collectors.

A friend of mine is into vintage cars. He has the same makings as my mom, like a burning passion with which he develops a real collector's skills, and somehow making loads of money out of it too.

Actually in my country old coins do not worth, and i never saw any of my friend collecting the coins, whatever i have seen that some people really collect them to get rewards.

Every country has coins and stamps which are worth a lot. Old sliver coins and gold coins are always valuable and priced more than their metal value. Also There are rare stamps which could fetch lots of money. Just search Google for expensive stamps and coins of your country. Now your friends not collecting is another matter. Not many do it these days.

BTW which country are you from ?
