|Collecting U.S. Coins by Type.|
A type collection consists of one coin of each denomination of every type of
coin ever produced.

|Collecting U.S.Coins by Date & Mint.|
Collecting coins by date is not much different then collecting by type. You pick the type you enjoy to collect and you can collect one coin of each year that they were minted. Thus you have what is called a date set. This is one good way to put a collection together as certian coins of each year are more easy to aquire than others.
Example, take a the 1916 Quarter; a 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter in GOOD condition would cost you about $1,200.00 to buy for your date set, but a 1916 Barber Quarter would cost about $12.00 in fine condition to purchess. You will find this example to hold true with most all of the year sets you put together.
Once you have a good
start on your date set you could start adding the in-between coins with mint marks
to fill in all of the spaces.
It's your hobby, you decide what and how you want to collect.
