1: Albums to put your coins in: There are a lot of different brands, use which ever one you like.
2: Catalogs to tell you how much their worth: The Guidebook Of U.S Coins, AKA The Redbook, is a must have if you are collecting U.S. Coins.
3: If you have loose coins, I use 2X2 Flips. You just put the coin in the middle, fold the flip over, and staple.
I put them in plastic pages with pockets and store them in a binder. Same for my Currency collection.
4: You might want to invest in a good safe (as I have), or a safe deposit box at your local bank, for security
5: And to keep track of what coins you have, there are several software programs, which I don't use, or books where you can write down what you have.
6: A subscription to a magazine such as Coins Magazine, which can give you more tips.

There are plenty of ways you can get started with coin collecting:
1: Pocket change: You can find older date cents, nickels, and Statehood quarters, and the
occasional silver dime.
2: Go to the bank: you can buy rolls of coins from the bank, and look through bills, if you want to collect paper money as well.
3: Ask friends and family to look out in their change.
4: Go to antique stores, or coin/hobby shops.
And that should make a good start!
