Tom Bilotta is an experienced numismatist and writer, and has been a publisher of coin-collecting software for more than 20 years. In this new book he brings that experience to a valuable discussion of collecting during a hobbyist's golden years. "Coin collecting during retirement poses specialized challenges and opportunities," Bilotta says. He explores these issues in depth and guides his readers toward building their enjoyment of the hobby while preparing their collections for later allocation to their heirs. "Retirement is a time to adopt new collecting strategies, often to consolidate and focus, to define new goals," Bilotta says. "Retired collectors might dabble in selling parts of their collections, or even jump into that pursuit with both feet." For some retirees, this is a time to budget and scale back on hobbies, while still staying active. Others find themselves with more money and more time to devote to collecting. "Importantly," Bilotta says, "it's also a time to educate your family, and prepare your collection for the future." In addition to addressing active collectors, he gives valuable hands-on advice to inheritors on how to manage the disposition of rare coins and other collectibles.
