Coin collections are essentially the collecting of coins or forms of minted legal tender. Those that spark interest for collectors are those that have been circulating over a brief amount of time, coins with mint errors and especially those that beautiful, and historical significant pieces.
A coins grade is often determinant of its worth. More than 80 million coins have been certified by the four greatest services. For those that are for a tiered fee, third party certification services such as PCGS or NGC will grade, authenticate and encapsulate most of the United States and other foreign coins. Coins, for many years have been hoarded for their bullion value. However, the collection of coins, for their artistic value, developed later on. There is evidence from archaeological and historical records of Ancient Rome and Medieval Mesopotamia having proven that coins were collected and catalogued by scholars and state treasuries.
Like banknotes, coins main purpose is the payment for goods and services. Collectors tend to differentiate between the circulation coins, which refer to normal coinage that is used in everyday life, and commemorative coins, which are issued to commemorate any special events or personalities.
Coins are most often made out of metal and are produced according to their size, weight, text and picture motif established by the issuing country or territory. It is the coin laws that regulate production of the coins in several if not all countries and can appoint the inscriptions or wording used or the features used for security purposes.
Many experts have suggested that the most ideal investment of coins are the more rarer, key dated coins issued by the United States, in the best grade form that you can purchase them. Some of these coins are said to cost up to $2000. A yearly amount expected from coin collecting is around $10 billion in the United States alone, with the world wide figure being of around $100 billion a year. This is a ‘hobby’ that may not pay its dividends immediately but will be of a high value later on in life.
