Hi NumisRob & welcome to the forum. I am the opposite to you. I have had a short hiatus from this form because I 're-started' collecting coins as well. While I collect only Canadian and American coins I do come across the odd coins from other countries as well.
i am trying to find out as much as I can about coins, even if my main hobby is still stamps
Are you familiar with "Christopher Collects" and "Coin Patrol" on YB& I have found a lot of good information from them plus others who post there as well. There are also Canadian ones such as "Cad Roll Hunter" and a few others as well.
I also plan to ask question in our coin forum here too.
