Another one of the spelling bee words. A coin collector. Numimatic = study of coins.
For once, my dictionary gives more information about etymology, tracing it back to
Greek nomos = law. Creation of coins is a jealously guarded prerogative of goverhment.
If you get caught making coins, you get plenty privilege taken away. (Hoagy Carmichael).

If you collect both coins and stamps, are you a numismaphilatelist or a philatelnumismatist?

My collection is small, but I collect portraits of dead presidents.

The trouble with 'formally asking' is that it is difficult
to ask for favors without asking for two things: one, the favor, and two, the tacit admission by the recipient that
she welcomed the request.
Pride dictated rejection of the tacit admission.
