Other Gifts for Coin Collectors
Some of the best gift options combine a second hobby or interest with coin collecting. Here are a few of the options available.
Silver Sports Coins
Germany’s Mayer Mint struck a Buel Spoon Fishing Lure coin in 2020. The coin features an image of Julio Buel, the lure’s inventor, and was also struck in the shape of a lure. A fishhook brings the design together for a piece that will stand out in any collection.
The Basketball fan in your life should not miss out on the United States Mint’s Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative coin program which was issued in 2020. The domed coins are the perfect way to display passion for the sport in a collection.
GovMint.com is proud to stock numerous historic numismatic pieces that are often available in themed packaging that would be perfect gift ideas for the history enthusiast and coin collector in your life. A Korean War set which houses coinage issued during the war from 1950-1953 in military-themed packaging could be an excellent gift for the veteran in your life.

In addition to actual historical pieces, Mints around the world issue coins to commemorate significant past events. For example, the Perth Mint created a coin celebrating the first-ever flight from England to Australia. Struck in 2019, the coin marked the centennial anniversary of the critical trip, which showed just how far aviation had gone in bringing the world together in only sixteen years. The 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing just recently passed in 2019, and everywhere from the United States Mint to the Royal Canadian Mint issued coins honoring that landmark achievement.
Harry Potter Coins, Marvel Coins, Chibi Coins, and More!
Options abound for pop culture enthusiasts. Coins are frequently issued featuring music, movies, and more. Chibi coins are shaped like the cartoon versions of a variety of famous characters. Another great option is to send a collector back to his or her childhood with the likes of a 2018 Paddington Bear issue from The Royal Mint. From Marvel to Harry Potter to some of your favorite rock and roll bands like ACDC, and more, you can find the perfect gift for the coin collector in your life.
