What's the difference between a collectable trackable and a non-collectable one?

collectible would be your trackable that is still in circulation and discoverable,
and non would be for not circulated and in your personal collection only.

I believe it's actually more the reverse...

The designator of collectible allows the coin to be moved to a "collection" which will remove the coin from your inventory when you are logging a cache so you don't continue to see many coins if you are the type of cacher that has a collection of activated geocoins. Note: marking it collectible also allows other cachers to add your coin to their collection which I find strange.

To get Groundspeak's explanation of this feature, you may want to reference:

Personally, I don't use it for my geocoin collection because if you do it's a pain to move the coins into an event listing.

Thanks for the link and input. I just drop my Collectables into my closest to home Archived cache. I don't have that many, but I can see how it would be useful to a coin collector with alot of trackables.
