What Makes Rare Coins So Special?
In The Pleasure of Coin Collecting, by the Professional Numismatist Guild, Inc., the author states that “rare coins offer history you can hold in your hand, tangible reminders of yesteryear.” Your gold coins more than likely have a story to tell, and, in some cases, you can discover that story with a little research. No other form of investing creates such a personal involvement as investing in rare coins. Rare coins have another advantage over just about any other investment commodity; they are beautiful. Gold, for example, never tarnishes or rusts so, if you invest in gold coins that have lain at the bottom of the ocean for centuries, they will be as beautiful as the day they were minted. You can display rare coins in a way that you cannot display most other commodities. And, while you and your friends are enjoying the beauty of your coins, they just might be increasing in value.
