From the Nov. 28 Numismatic News E-NewsLetter

Do you collect numismatic items marking the Chinese Lunar New Year? If so, what types of items do you collect?

Here are some answers sent in from our E-Newsletter readers.

I collect various Chinese Lunar coins depending on the occasion. My favorite ones are the Mongolia ones.

No! I do not collect Chinese New Year, superheroes or any other nonsense issues that don’t circulate. NCLTs [Non-Circulating Legal Tender coins] are just medals designed to take money out of our pockets. They aren’t money.
