Nice to see many women, children and middle aged people in attendance. So unlike USA shows. Bodes well for the future of the Chinese coin market.

Exaclty. Aside from ill-fated scavenger hunts US coin shows don't have much to offer. As someone who frequently has to drag a child around with him to shows it is really refreshing to see kids lifting coins and enjoying themselves at shows.

That is my whole point of putting on this show as I can
See the hobby without much young blood for the future

I was once a young collector and in the US there are very
Few young collectors as this whole generation is into
Video games and what have you

In Asia it's different and there is much hope as all we have to do
Is put on more events like this .

I will continue to spend as much as I have to put these
Events on in Asia.

In fact next year we will invite a few dozen schools to participate
And bring the kids on for free grab bag of coins so hope we can
Turn some into future collectors

I will personally donate thousands to this cause in Singapore

Yes kids today may not be much interested in our hobby but I believe with the right exposure we can introduce some to our great hobby.  I mean we have nothing to lose right?  Back in the US I had a few kids work for me after school 10 years ago when I had my own retail shop and I advised them to buy silver with their spare money rather than spend it on junk.  A few months ago one of the kids came to our Panda office to buy 2011 Silver Pandas and I happen to be in the office and they were so excited to tell me that because of my advice they made a lot of money over the years investing in Silver and he had also got a couple of his younger buddies to buy silver and now these couple of his 17 yo friends have 50k in the bank because of the rise in silver!  The original kid told me in the last few years he was hooked on going to flea markets, small shops, and what ever he can find to shop for coins to buy cheap and list on ebay.  All because of my teachings.  So it really makes me proud to hear this.  So I believe the same can happen here in Singapore and thoughout Asia.

..

because of my advice they made a lot of money over the years investing in Silver and he had also got a couple of his younger buddies to buy silver and now these couple of his 17 yo friends have 50k in the bank because of the rise in silver! 

Coin collecting as a hobby isn't much fun for anybody if it isn't also wise financially. There are plenty of hobbies that are money-pits that are more fun. Everybody likes making money, but not everyone has the discipline to choose hobbies that are less fun than skiing, skateboarding, and skydiving, but much more smart from a financial perspective.

In general, this is the primary difference between rich and poor. It's not about intelligence, work ethic, luck, or any of those things. Those things are helpful, but the only crucial thing is the willingness to do things differently from everyone else.

Rich and poor is not something you can measure on an absolute scale. It's always relative to your peers. So, it's really all about being superior in that one aspect, usually at the expense of something else (time, fun, etc), at least in the beginning.
