When were most rare coins of the world made?

Coins have been in use for thousands of years, and valuable rare coins can come from any period. The term “rare” refers to how many are estimated to be available today. Even if a particular coin series had an original mintage of 300,000, if it is known that 250,000 were later melted down, only the remaining pieces are considered when evaluating rarity. Coins that were made several hundred years ago are almost always rarer than those produced in during the 20th century and beyond. However, some rare coins that were made within the last 100 years can be more valuable than those made 500 years ago. It all comes down to historical significance, condition, and market demand.

How do I start collecting rare U.S. currency?

For anyone looking to start a collection of rare U.S. currency, it is best to start by researching the history of the U.S. Mint. Collectors do not need to be ready for a pop quiz on every single series issued by the American government, but an overall understanding of significant changes in the production of coins is helpful. If the goal is to create a diverse investment portfolio, start with small acquisitions of rare Silver coins that were produced within the last 100 years. These are highly collectible, but available at entry level price points. Once you are familiar with the process of buying old U.S. currency, research the going prices for hard-to-find pieces that appeal to you. Part of the joy of collecting coins is having a collection that represents your personal history and interests.
