Originally, I had planned on only collecting plush for my favorite Pokemon. Recently, I realized that I also wanted to collect TCG coins, as I've always liked the designs. I also haven't seen too many TCG coin collectors, so I thought it would be a relatively cheap and fun collection to make.
I’d like to create a display for the coin collection but haven’t figured out a good way to do so. I don’t want them in a binder - I’d prefer to hang them on my wall somehow. I used to have a map of the US for collecting the state quarters, so I think I'd like to do something like that once my collection is complete. Does anyone have any cool suggestions for displaying lots of coins? And if you have a coin collection of your own, I'd love to see it!
Onto the gets!
The Alto Mare coin was only available in the Alto Mare theme deck. Alto Mare is the setting for the 5th Pokemon movie, Pokemon Heroes. It features Latios and Latias, my favorite legendary duo, so this was a very special get.
The Groudon coin was available with preorders for Pokemon Ruby, which is one of my favorite games. You have to tilt it at a certain angle to see Groudon.

My bookshelf and dresser also house my plush collection. The plushies I own are mostly my favorite Pokemon in Banpresto or Pokedoll form. Heracross is my favorite, so I have two of his Banpresto plushes (one is MWT, the other is very loved. Both obtained with help from comm members!). I also have the Lugia/Ho-Oh HGSS preorder figures (from a GA) hanging out with Saber. My current and previous gen games are chilling with Deino.
These displays are kind of messy since I don't have any extra shelves I can dedicate to plush.
Latios and Latias are perched on my swords, though Latias is kind of hidden behind Sub DX.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was going to be getting a cat - she might not be a Pokemon, but I figured I'd share anyway. Her name is Princess, and she's a 3-year old domestic longhair that I adopted from a shelter.
Wants and Plans
Metagross and Jirachi are highest priority.
Since this is a new collection, I'm going to start out by obtaining what I want the most, that is, my favorite coin designs and Pokemon. After I have some of my high-priority wants, I'll probably start filling in what I don't have for a complete collection.
If anybody has TCG coins to sell, or Pokemon Time bookmarks (I'd love a Latios one and Heracross), I'm interested in making small purchases. I might be interested in coins not on my list, because I don't know all the coins that exist!
