Hello, my name is Noel. I’m a geek and coin collector. This website is an online catalog and gallery of my Philippine Coins and Currency collections. I collect U.S. coins as well but my real passion is on collecting Philippine coins, especially the Philippine coins under US administration from 1903 to 1945. Born and raised in the Philippines, the Philippine coins have a natural appeal to me.
I’ll probably blog a little here and there but mostly, I was just hoping this website can help me keep track of my collection, share my hobby with those interested, and hopefully connect with other fellow collectors
The idea for this site came to me when I joined the NGC user’s registry. (NGC is a third-party grading service and that lets anyone create registry sets for free.) Basically, NGC will let you enter coins you own so you can keep track of your collection and show them off to the world. The only problem was, NGC only allows NGC and PCGS slabbed coins. They won’t let you show off or catalog raw or other TPG graded coins. Recently NGC decided to not accept PCGS coins in their World Registries either.
PCGS has a similar system except worse. they only accepts PCGS certified coins. Not even NGC coins make the cut.
This site, my own site, solves a lot of problem for me. I could keep track of all my coins, whether its raw, or slabbed by NGC, PCGS, er even ANACS. No restriction.
That’s it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my website.
