Let’s face it, today’s rare coin market is blazing hot…and these days, rare coin collectors and investors can easily expect their coins to appreciate handsomely over time. But, the really BIG gains in rare coins only happens by owning the right coins, at the right price, at the right time.
The biggest mistake I watch people make is buying coins with the “pig in a poke” theory. This theory often works well when markets, be they stocks, real estate or coins, are in major market upswings. But a far better strategy, I think, is buying coins which carry all three of the fundamentals that should be applied when evaluating a potential coin acquisition: rarity, popularity and historical significance.
If you apply common sense to your acquisitions and purchase with these three criteria in mind, then you will most likely enjoy the greatest appreciation in your collection — and most likely have ready buyers, whatever the market climate is, at the time you choose to sell.
