My older brother is a visual artist and a collector at the same time. He has this small art gallery in their house in the Philippines where he displays all his canvass paintings, photography, and various art and memorabilia collections.
He already won various national awards for photography and visual art painting competitions and before the month end, he is having a one-man-show art exhibit in an art gallery. Apart from that, he collects various memorabilia such as old photos of celebrities, stamps, magazines, vintage bottles, coins and more. I know that he'd appreciate all the coins available at moderncoinwholesale.com for silver eagles and early releases of coins such as this.
I'm not sure what he can get out of collecting such items but I'm positive that he loves doing it for I believe it can give him a different euphoria.
