We think the New Zealand Mint chibi silver coins are a great way to get younger people, especially teens and children, interested in coin collecting. What do you think?

If you have any younger family members, have you tried to share your collecting and investing with them with older, classic coins? How?

    I have purchased New Zealand Mint silver coins. I like them but the secondary market doesn't seem to. Perth Mint is also a place to check out coins produced for kids -- 1/2 oz silver coins.

    the collecting coin bug either bites a kid or not. getting them bitten is not an effort to undertake.

    the "good for kids" is subjective and even may be subject to the changing interest of kids. ex: pokemon for a few years then not at all.

    personally, I am bothered by all this special interest material like painted coins, shaped coins, themed coins. besides going against conservative sensibilities, these will either get sold or passed down in generations. someone sometime will have to want it and the limited interest can mean someone has something others don't really want.

    lastly, paint can fade.

    full disclosure, all my stuff will get passed down to my kid. so it'll be up to the kid to keep it or unload it. call me a hypocrite.

    Those do not interest me - and kids may have a passing interest, but since it is so radically different from coins, it is unlikely to spark interest in coin collecting. Cheers, RickO

    Silver @ $100/oz? Collecting fad coins is not a basis to create an interest in coin collecting.

    Adults are actually having these trinkets slabbed! (shrug)

    These will find their place alongside the sterling spoons & obscure silver fabrications waiting to be discovered in antique stores and melted back into bullion bars.
