Investing in Rare Coins

investing in rare coins special research report Photo by
Throughout history, many rare coin collections have produced substantial long-term profits for their owners. This is particularly true for coin collectors of this century. For instance, Harold Bareford reportedly purchased a collection of U.S. gold coins for $13,832 in the early 1950's that was resold at auction in 1978 for $1.2 million. A more substantial collector, Louis Eliasberg, built a collection that cost approximately $300,000. In 1982, it brought $12.4 million at auction. This rare coin investment performance has been well documented by sources as diverse as The Wall Street Journal, Consumer Reports and a host of ...
Though closely related, the two disciplines are not necessarily the same. A numismatist may or may not be a coin collector and vice versa.
2010 Melbourne ANDA Coin and Banknote Show Wrap Up
the show was held at the Caulfield Racecourse in the members area of the main racecourse grandstand. Starting at 10AM on Saturday we arrived just a few minutes after official opening time and the queue to enter was quite long and it took us at least 10 minutes to enter. Once in, the show appeared to be layed out like last year (in fact some dealers were in the same location). It was quite difficult to actually get a seat at any dealers table because of the crowds of people looking for bargains. Actually the both of us were scratching our heads a little about the early crowd because there wasn't keenly sought limited ... market research, surveys and trends

Permanent Link - -- The Blade ~ Toledo Ohio
Since 1998, Ohio has invested millions of dollars in the unregulated world of rare coins, buying nickels, dimes, and pennies. Controlling the money for the state? Prominent local Republican and coin dealer Tom Noe, whose firm made more than $1 million off the deal last year alone. The agreement to invest the money in rare coins is rare itself: The Blade could find no other instance of a state government investing in a rare coin fund. Neither the state nor Mr. Noe could provide one. "I don't think I'd be excited to invest in rare coins," Vermont Treasurer Mike Ablowich said.

Rare coin profits, like profits found in any other market, historically run in cycles. Rare coin investing is driven by free market forces from both within and without the rare coin market itself. In markets like stocks, real estate and bonds, supply and demand are the basics and fundamentals that drive things forward. Rare coin profits are no different. They also react to supply and demand.

The ins and outs of investing in gold
Gold has been considered the symbol of wealth since humans learned how to melt metals and shape them. The reason why gold has owned this value is that its value is actually held by it. In other words, gold didn’t and won’t need to be insured by any government or financial entity whatever. This means that gold would never lose its value, unlike paper money which will certainly be worth nothing more than the value of pure paper when a government is overthrown or declined by a war or economical crisis. These advantages have made investment in gold (and silver as well) the best way to save one’s wealth and increase ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
200 Pounds of Gold Isn't Chump Change!
My investment career started with silver. Specifically, junk 90% silver U.S. coins. As a kid, I used to collect the ones that circulated as change. Since then, I’ve been a bit of a bullion hound, and I like to think I have a pretty decent hoard going. But nothing I have can beat this… On June 26th, one of the world’s largest gold coins — weighing in at over 200 pounds — sold for over $4 million dollars. That’s a lot of bullion! And bullion’s been getting a lot of buyers lately, courtesy of the latest wave of defaults spreading across Europe. But for patient investors, there’s a possibility for better returns in the realm ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Rental Listings May Be Red Herrings
Apartment and rental house hunting can be an adventure, but also a real balancing act. Issues like size, location, move-in date, monthly rent, and extra costs — like parking and utility bills — all factor in to a final decision.

Whether you’re a first-time renter or already a pro, the FTC, the nation’s consumer protection agency, wants you to know how to avoid getting taken in by a rental scam. These scams play out a number of ways. Some scammers hijack a bona ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Saving and Investing Today...For Tomorrow
While personal and household income for North Dakota families has increased steadily over the years, real income, or the amount of goods and services that can be purchased with income, has been decreasing. North Dakota household income has not kept up with inflation over the past 30 years. North Dakota families are spending more, saving and investing less and often substituting money for time. As a result, they may overspend, develop credit problems and are less prepared for financial emergencies. Many North Dakotans have sought a second job or sent a second family member into the labor force. A second paycheck ...

The new Dollar coin--what do you think about it?
I think that the majority of people are still to ingrained into paper money for the one dollar currency, and society and the commercial services will not adapt.  If you think of how many vending machines, cash registers, etc. are designed for one dollar bills and not for dollar coins, then it becomes pretty clear that it won’t succeed.  I can’t imagine the commercial market willing to redesign and manufacture new vending machines, etc. that take the dollar coin because of the cost of designing and replacing them (even over a protracted period of several years). People will not adopt the dollar coin because ...
