In this presentation Mark will explain, to those not interested in numismatics, why we collect. Mark believes that everyone has a collection or great passion for something. If we can convince them to accept our passion for collecting in the same way that they receive enjoyment through music, nature, or even their collecting habits, that would be beneficial to all. Mark plans to incorporate the survey that he took of members from three coin clubs. He will also use information that he collected from interviews of both collectors and non collectors.
