It is one of those hobbies that does not immediately pay dividends, but whose value is paid out fully in decades to come. It's a way to store wealth, it's patriotic, it's a way for a 70 year old grandparent and a 7 year kid to relate. You see coins transcend decades, centuries, and of course generations.
