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

Let's see if it becomes a problem, then we'll deal with it at that time.

 I do not collect coins and I don't think we should have a coin forum here. There are coin forum sites already and I think CdnPaperMoney forums will be taken over by coin inquiries and we will soon have to sort through pages of coin stuff to find the occasional comment on paper money, kind of like it was on eBay awhile back when all the shredded money was on there.

 That's my 2 dollars worth, Gary_T

Yikes!!!
Coins, Coins, Coins
I must be lost!
Nope, it says Paper Money Forums!
I liked it better before!

Is it just a harmless prefix-kix or do I live for that next prefix-fix?

I have to agree... We get coin postings mixed with banknote ones, there is too much information in one place. I hoped there would be a similar but separate FORUM for coins, not THREADS. And while I am a coin collector myself, I'm not sure I like to see the bullion thread here, it's for investors, not coin and banknote collectors.

We could just limit it to Coins.. and remove bars all together

I agree as well.  I am always looking to buy and/or sell and the postings here could end up being overwhelming.  Then add in RCM products people want to buy and/or sell and the papermoney posts will be hard to find. In fact, I was thinking of offering to trade replacement notes for coins... :-X

I agree with the fact that there should be a trade post section reserved only for coins in coins section. That way for those who don't have interest in coins will not be stuck searching through coin adds just to get to paper money.

I use the "View the most recent posts on the forum".. Along with the seperate trade section.. I think it might be nice to have another link to the most recent coin threads.. this way it shouldn't bother the strictly paper collectors as much.

Sounds like everyone wants things the way they were.  Strange... Conduct a poll, get strong support for an idea, but once it's implemented, out come the critics.

No, we will not have an entirely separate forum for coins.  No, we cannot make coin threads red and paper threads blue.  No, we can't separate them on the Recent Posts page.  No, we're not going to have a separate Trading Post (for now... if things get crazy then I'll reconsider, but for the time being, no).

Let's see how this present setup works for a while.  If people simply cannot handle it, then I'll ditch the coin forums and go back to where we were last week.

I like the new coin forums. Lately this forum has been so slow, that you could not check the site for a couple days, come back and nothing new has been posted. With the coin forums, there is a lot more to talk about now, and the activity here really seems to be picking up.

With just banknotes, it seems like every topic has been covered and all the new posts are made by new members asking the value of there notes.

Yeah, but it's coin-related discussions, hence of no value to me.  Maybe in time, we'll go back to discussions of folding money.
