Thread: Why Are Only American Coins Collectible?

  1. #1

    Default Why Are Only American Coins Collectible?

    You look at lists of the rarest, most valuable, most traded, most in demand coins, over 90% of them are American coins. Why is this?

    Sure you have your odd Dubloon here and Roman coin there which have a high intrisic value (i.e. headed for a museum), but mostly apart from that, the only coins traded are American.

    Go to eBay and check it out. And if you're not convinced, go to eBay's Euro or other sites and search- all you see are American coins.

    What makes American coins so special???

    I thought MeatLoaf got in trouble because he was accused of having Kruggerands and they tore up his back yard looking for them.
    If we do not learn from the past, we will keep making the same stupid mistakes

    obviously you are checking american sources...so of course you will get american coins....here in canada most coin dealers have old canadian coins.....if I went to england I would see mostly old soveriegns etc in coin dealers. Naturally since ebay is an american company then you get american content. Here in canada coin dealers rarely have more than just a few american coins!

    There are many exceptions, of course, but most people who collect stamps and coins collect the products of their own country.

    They're not.

    You have PCGS, NGC grading companies here. And one reason people buy collectible coins is the hope that they would not be confiscated by the government. We have a big market for it, you have PLUS grading now, CAC grading.

    Lets face it is a Silver Dollar or a comparable foreign coin going to sell for 8 million in a different country than the US?

    How about the 1933 Saint Gaudens?

    We have a very advanced numismatic market.

    Exactly...besides...when the crap hits the fan it is not going to matter what famous person or object is on the face of the coin..only its intrinsic value.

    Because when people find Roman coins they get snapped up by professional collectors and not someone on Ebay.
