None of their actions speak of a love of coins.

For Numismatics world loving coins  is truly applicable , for other categories they look  only  for its value keep on watching it prices .

Research shows that true collectors could go to any extent for their passion .

Cheers ;D
Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

I agree with you Peter.

I know many persons with deep pockets. They just hoard the coins.They dont love coins. They will sell their coins to the highest bidder as soon as the prices rise. They are doing it for commercial gains. 

I feel the real joy of collection comes only with limited resources. If you painfully build your collection piece by piece, it gives much more pleasure. If I have few lac rupees spare, I can buy entire Republic India collection overnight. But this will not give any joy.

What do you think

Not only this  they  have lack of knowledge about their coins as well , money can't buy knowledge.

Another famous proverb - Knowledge is more valuable than valuable jewels
