It gives me immense pleasure to introduce myself ‘Siddharth N Shah’. Since childhood I had been attracted towards the hobby of coin and currency collection and after studying and getting in-depth knowledge on this subject, I planned my career into the field of numismatics.At present, I am a professional numismatist with more than 20 years of experience and have a well established numismatic setup ‘SNS Coin Investment Gallery’ at Raghuleela Mall, Kandivali (W), Mumbai Here, I share anything and everything related to collecting of Indian coins and currency notes, whether they are definitive, commemorative or erratum, about single, or in sets (uncirculated, specimen, or proof edition) etc.Further I also assist in coin valuation and as a step of promoting this hobby within new collectors I have always been regular with my updates through color charts and booklets, announcements through messages, mails that has proved to be a major help-source over the years, not only to new collectors but also to senior numismatists.And as I started my independent coin gallery in Mumbai, I also started the ‘Indian Coins and Currency Group’ (ICCG). Indian Coins & Currency Group (ICCG) is a group dedicated to informing and helping the general public about numismatics and promoting all facets of the hobby of coin and currency collecting.
The group is open to all members of the public of good character who share the interest, passion and love towards the hobby without regard to race, gender, religion, or national origin. The group also offers membership to general public who feel interested to be a part of this great hobby through which they could avail all the benefits that the group offers. The group has 4500 plus active members from all over India and still counting.Hobby is always a part of education is what I always believed and thus I came up with the world’s first and only ‘Numismatic Anthem – Meri Dharrohar’. This musical anthem was a just the next step to show respect towards every single collectible of every hobby lover. As I believed, the anthem would further encourage and bring pride to all the numismatists and collectors.
My journey is surely continuing from here, as the main goal is always to save our coins and heritage by providing proper knowledge and creating awareness among current and coming generation.Soon I started India’s only numismatic newspaper ‘ICCG News’ of which I am the Chief Editor. ICCG News is dedicated to informing and helping the general public about numismatics & philatelic and promoting all facets of the hobby of coin, stamp and currency collecting. ICCG News is a monthly news paper based on numismatic articles and news. The news paper is regularly being distributed to all ICCG members along with the Government sectors and Colleges of India. Today we are into our fourth year of this news monthly.This monthly newspaper also provides reports on market trends and news concerning collectibles like coins, paper money, stamps etc. Apart of the news, the paper contains numismatic and philatelic articles and interviews to add up to good reading. It also contains complete information on all upcoming numismatic and philatelic events.My journey is surely continuing from here, as the main goal is always to save our coins and heritage by providing proper knowledge and creating awareness among current and coming generation.
