It has been suggested recently that we create a new board for coin-related discussions.  This would potentially include (or at least open the doors to) discussions on bullion products, Royal Canadian Mint products, tokens, etc.

On one hand, this is the Canadian Paper Money Forums, but on the other hand there's no reason why we can't welcome other branches of numismatics.

I would like to hear your thoughts.  Please vote in the poll above.  If you have any more detailed thoughts, please reply to this thread.  Thanks!

This poll is only "testing the waters" and the results are in no way binding.

I'm all for it. I don't see why we have to limit ourselves to just one form of currency. :-[

I think it would be a great idea especially since many of the paper money collectors that I know either started collecting coins or still do.
Personally I would like to see a trading post where one could buy/sell/trade coins and bullion.

I think it's a good idea, as long as we can avoid inheriting some of the problems plaguing other coin forums.

A great idea!  :)
A place where we could indeed discuss RCM products, circulation finds etc.

Count me as one of the "no" votes.  I like that everyone here shares the same interest.  The single-minded focus of this forum makes it more interesting and relevant for me.

My 2 cents (hahaha)

I do agree that the great thing about this forum is that you know everyone here has the common interest of paper money, but as long as the coin forum is separate, I don't see a problem since as I said before many collectors are interested in both areas.
It is no different than if I have no interest in let's say World banknotes, I just don't bother reading posts in that section.

I dont see a problem with it.
Though I dont see it being much used ether.

I collect banknotes depicting Tallships. And to a lesser degree, all watercrafts.

I think it will be quite popular, like people above said a lot of collectors collect coins and banknotes.

The people have spoken!

I have decided to create four new boards here at the Canadian Paper Money Forums:
  • Canadian Coins
  • Gold, Silver and other Bullion
  • Tokens and Medals
  • Foreign Coins

This is a bit of a "pilot project" to see how well the new boards are used.  If there is sufficient demand and activity, we may add additional boards or split some to be more specific.  (Who knows, maybe there's a huge amount of pent-up discussions about British coins!)

So please pass the word on to your friends and fellow numismatists that our coin forums are now open for business.

Just wondering if there will be a trading post dealing with these new items instead of combining it with the one for paper money?
