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!
