Jaireet is a great example of younger generations modernizing numismatics and collecting in the digital realm.

Both TikTok and Instagram are a great way to engage a younger audience and keep the love of numismatics alive.


In an effort to support, encourage and highlight younger generations of collectors, CCN is implementing a new series to feature a young collector of the week.

Happy collecting!
