What I am collecting / Investing in.

Found 2 results

  1. Has anyone on the forum picked one of these up or seen them floating around on eBay or other websites? They are sold out at Modern Coin Mart, see the link below. I completely missed it! It seems the Royal Mint are continuing with a tradition started in 2015 of having multiple Britannias available per year. This is the 3rd type as far as I can tell. For 2018 there are the textured background silver Britannia coins known as the "radial sunburst" coins and designated as such on NGC labels, the Oriental Border coins, and now this plain fields coin which is simply listed as a DPL on the NGC label. Limited mintage as far as I know and they are still available raw from the Royal Mint last I checked. Let me know your thoughts!

    Old or Gold?

    This is a general comment about collecting coins and gold coins. I've noticed since being a collector that there seems to be two directions numismatists go when they "mature" in their collecting - gold or old. I realize there are exceptions to this, and I know some people collect paper currency, precious metals for stacking and not coins, and of course exonumia, but I'm fairly confident I can clump most serious collectors of coins into either of those categories. For instance... Some of the most popular coins collected amongst serious numismatists in the UK are the sovereigns (Gold) and crowns (Old). Some of the most popular coins collected in the US are Morgan Silver Dollars (Old) and the Eagle, Double Eagle, and Indian head dollar coins (Gold). I'm sure other countries have similar patterns. As a younger collector my question to the Silver Forum Community is - is it worth it to even bother with modern silver, semi-numismatics, limited mintages, non-Precious Metal coins, etc. if eventually all great collections contain very old coins or (very?) gold coins? I appreciate all comments and criticism!
