Ok let me try to clarify. I just tested this out using the gcmaine TB which is owned by a separate account. Totally confusing.
1. On your profile pages exists a newer feature named Trackables Collection.
2. You can add any coin to the Trackables Collection IF the details for that TB/Coin have the Make this Trackable collectible checkbox checked. You do not need to be the owner!
3. Any TB/Coin in Your Trackables Collection are not shown in your inventory list and anyone looking at your profile cannot see what trackables you have in your collection. They can, however see that you possess the coin on the TB/Coin page however.
4. Any coin which is part of a collection cannot be picked up or dropped, it can only be discovered, or given a note. This is true for both the owner of the TB/Coin as well as everyone else.
5. If you own a TB/Coin which has the Make this Trackable collectible checkbox checked and someone else adds it to their collection, you can edit the TB/Coin page, unchecking the checkbox, which will allow you to grab that TB/coin from that persons collection.
So, if you want to set a TB/Coin out and do not want anyone to collect it, which keeps anyone else from picking it up or dropping it off, DO NOT check the Make this Trackable collectible checkbox.
If you own a TB/Coin which will never be moved by anyone but you, only discovered, it would be ok to check that checkbox. You will, however, need to uncheck the checkbox to move it.

"The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it..."
Putting a trackable in a cache - don't check the box.
We are losing WWII vets at an amazing rate and with them their stories, their history. We all talk about thanking a vet when we see them, how about an extra pat on the back or going to the next aisle over at the store to particularly thank a WWII vet? You'll make their day!
Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.
Yes, today was a day we all should have taken a moment to remember what happened in HI. I heard on the news tonight, there were only 2 veterans who were living survivors of Pearl Harbor here in ME (? - not sure if this is accurate) and if so - it means through our friend dufzor we are fortunate enough to pass on our thanks directly. If the dear soul is still with us as I write this, I hope he knows there is a new community of friends, his niece's Geocaching friends, who want to extend a hearty "Thank You"!
And to all the other Veterans out there - and there are many - Thank You too!
