Stamp collection is called the king of hobbies. As one of the oldest and most popular world pastimes, coin collecting is now often referred to as the “King of Kings among Hobby”.

One may think that to collect coin is very difficult. But we handle coins every day, if a person just goes through the coins in his pocket, he will find many different coins and from this he can start his collection. But to find and learn about old coins one should know another collector, seller and dealer. It is here a club or society plays its important role. Through frequent monthly meeting, exhibitions, educative sessions, exchange and sale of coins, The Kerala Numismatic Society has succeeded in spreading the message among enthusiasts that numismatics can be embraced as a serious hobby.
