Blind Coin Collector

It's another kind of fun to collect coins if you can't see them.

Collecting in Toronto

Canada 5 Dollars
Recently I got a new work assignment, I will be traveling to train how to make information technology usable for people with disabilities. So, you can imagine. It is not just a job or an assignment, this is something I am passionate about. Both the travel and the work aspect of it. I started in Toronto last week. And there’s no better way to spend free time than experiencing the area, and of course, adding to my collection.

Collecting in Hungary

I spent the last few weeks in Hungary, so I couldn’t miss the chance of getting some more harder to get Hungarian coins. I had many plans, but only a few happened, but I was still able to add to my collection.

Hungarian Numismatic Society

I’m spending some time in Hungary, where I grew up, and there is something I have missed while I lived here. I did not learn much about Hungarian coin collecting. So, last week, I found an interesting presentation to attend, the only one while I’m here.

World’s Fair of Money

| Filed under Travel

Last week I attended the World’s Fair of Money in Chicago. The primary reason why I went there was because I got an opportunity to make a presentation about collecting coins without sight. However, I thought I’d take the opportunity and spend three days at the show. Only one regret: I could have used more than three days, I was able to cover everything on the exhibit floor I was interested in, but there were way too many interesting presentations.

In this post I will give an overview of my impressions.

One of the greatest things was to meet some of the WINS club members, we took a picture together after my presentation.

When I refer to people, I am not going to use their full names, I have not checked with them, and I’m not sure how would they feel about being called out in this blog. If you recognize yourself, please let me know if you prefer to be further identified, or if you prefer that I make you more unrecognizable.

Also, you can download my presentation here that I’m not going to talk about now.
