What to Consider when Collecting Coins

When collecting coins, there are several important factors to consider. Here are some key considerations for coin collectors:

  • Coin Authenticity: Ensure the authenticity of the coins you collect. Familiarize yourself with the characteristics, markings, and minting techniques associated with the specific coins you're interested in. Learn to identify counterfeit coins by studying the genuine ones and consulting reputable reference materials or experts.

  • Coin Grading and Condition: Assess the condition or grade of the coins before acquiring them. Coin grading is a standardized method of evaluating a coin's condition, which affects its value. Look for coins in the best condition possible, with minimal wear, damage, or cleaning. Graded coins, certified by reputable grading services, can provide additional assurance of authenticity and condition.

  • Rarity and Mintage: Coins that are rare or have low mintage numbers tend to be more valuable. Research the mintage figures for the specific coins you collect and consider coins from limited editions or specific years with lower production numbers. Rarity can significantly impact a coin's desirability and potential appreciation in value over time.

  • Historical Significance: Consider the historical significance of the coins you collect. Some coins may have ties to significant historical events, important figures, or represent specific eras in history. Understanding the historical context of a coin can enhance its value and appeal among collectors.

  • Coin Series and Sets: Collecting coins within a series or as part of a complete set can be a rewarding approach. Some collectors focus on acquiring every coin from a specific series, such as a particular country's coinage, commemorative series, or coins featuring a specific theme. Collecting complete sets can add depth and completeness to your collection.

  • Numismatic Value: Numismatic value refers to the collectible value of a coin beyond its intrinsic metal value. Factors such as rarity, condition, historical significance, and demand among collectors influence the numismatic value of a coin. Stay informed about current numismatic trends, market prices, and the overall demand for specific coins or series.

  • Coin Materials and Precious Metals: Consider the materials and composition of the coins. Some coins are made from precious metals like gold, silver, or platinum, which adds intrinsic value beyond their numismatic worth. The market value of precious metals can influence the value of these coins, so stay informed about metal prices if you collect coins primarily for their bullion value.

  • Storage and Preservation: Proper storage and preservation are crucial for maintaining the condition and value of your coin collection. Use coin holders, capsules, or albums designed specifically for coins to protect them from physical damage, oxidation, and environmental factors. Handle coins with clean hands and minimize direct contact with their surfaces.


It's important to conduct thorough research, consult with experts, and engage with the numismatic community to enhance your knowledge and understanding of coins. Consider joining coin collecting societies or attending coin shows and auctions to expand your network and access a wider range of coins. Enjoy the process of collecting coins and focus on acquiring pieces that align with your personal interests and collecting goals.

Question on coins (12/31/2009)

I have a 1971 half dollar in decent shape. It appears to have a double stamp, but not on the numbers only on the round ring. Do you know how much this may be worth, cause I can not find anything about it and live in a small town. Plus how do you find out if a 1944 wheat pennie is worth anything? I have two of them.I am to understand that some 1944 wheat pennies are worth much more but unsure of how to tell really. Do they have two minting marks? I am enclosing a picture and I hope you can make it out clearly as my camera is quite cheap. But if you enlarge the picture and look on the top left of the coin as it has two circles. What does that mean? Was it stamped twice? But only the round stamp is stamped twice and not the letters or numbers. Please let me know. Sincerely, Jimmie Stansberry, Jr

Information on penny? (09/16/2009)

Hello, I have really no idea about this but I have a penny........1952 Lincoln wheat with a triple D stamp under the date. Is this rare? I have several coins that have been given to me and I have no idea of their worth or rarity.

Double Die Obverse (09/16/2009)

I have done research and yet I still am not sure what to do with this. The research says in a majority that this can not be a double die, yet pictures have some saying, well maybe. Could you please help me determine the fate of this coin. I am attaching photos of this 2007 Idaho Quarter. The photos were taken with a Intel Play Mircroscope and then exported to photo scape. I embossed one of the photos to show the depth of the doubling. Please be kind enough as to at least tell this very new collector what to do with it. I am wary of coin dealer shops and would like to know if nothing else, if this should be graded. Thank you so much for your time. I understand you get many emails so I expect a more delayed response. I love your website. Thank You, Michelle Castleberry

1965 "silver quarters" and Lincoln memorial pennies (04/15/2009)

I recently read a book written by Scott Travers, One-Minute Coin Expert - Fifth Edition (2004), House of Collectilbes, Random House. Mr. Travers states, ..."In 1965, all dimes and quarters were supposed to be made of copper-nickel--but a very small number of quarters got minted by mistake." ..."Unlike 'clad' coins, it won't have a reddish line around the rim." I would like to know if this statement is true?

Question #2
With the use of my eye loupe, I was viewing some 2008 Lincoln memorial cents and noticed, on the obverse(?) (head side) obvious differences on Lincoln's ears, facial expressions (mouth, chin, and eyes (eyes appear to be more open and pupils more prominent or point of vision might be straight ahead or looking in a downwards direction. I was wondering if any of my observations are correct, and if so, how about value? Or perhaps I might need to change my eyeglass prescription?

Around the edge says Sachsen Gott Segne interspersed with crowns, stars and branches or antlers. Any help would be appreciated. I also found an 1805 coin with something like a Prussian eagle in what looks like 4 GB and Wilhelm III Borus on the front. If you can answer, thank you for your trouble. Larry Sutton

1954 SJ wheat penny (01/09/2009)

About 40 years ago I found 1954 wheat penny with the mint marking "SJ". I was about 10 years old at the time. My dad found a coin book at the time that listed it's value at $1.50. A few years ago I told a coin collector about it and he said it was worth a lot. I can not find any place that it is listed and I was told by one dealer that someone added the "J". It does not look that way to me. To you know anything Tom Paul

Your assistance on this penny oddity would be appreciated (10/21/2008)

I was recently rummaging through my childhood penny collection and I stumbled on a 1946 D with an odd flaw. Rather than a known striking error such a double image or strike over, it has a comma-shaped glob of extra copper on it at the right edge. It absolutely does not SEEM to be from wear or nicking. I could not find any reference to such a known error. If unique, does it add any numistic value? Your opinion is appreciated . Thank You. Holly Ptacek

Info on german coin (06/02/2008)

Hello, I am trying to find some information on a coin my husband recently purchased. It is a small, extremely thin coin, bronze in colour, about half an inch in diameter. The obverse shows a bust-length profile of a man in an 18th-century style periwig. Around the edge it reads "LUD XIV ..." (I wasn't able to make out the other letters and haven't had a chance to look with a magnifying glass yet). The reverse shows a lion with "JOHANN CHRISTIAN REICH" around the edge. The vendor we bought it from (at a local antiques fair) had it marked as an 18th century German coin. I don't know much about numismatics, but it seems strange to me that there is a proper name on the reverse, and no denomination markings (as far as I can tell). We had wondered if it were some sort of commemorative medal. I would be interested to hear your opinion on the age/place of origin of this coin.
We're not interested in an appraisal as much as some "biographical" information. Thanks in advance for your help, Jenny Herring

Philippine coin (02/05/2008)

I have a coin that was minted between 1920 and 1928 that is a twenty centavo piece on one side and on the other side says "United States of America" with a crest and eagle on it. The coin is inside a coin sleeve where it has remained for years and I am not able to determine the exact date, even though the coin sleeve says 1921. It appears to be a coin minted in the Philippines. How would I be able to determine it's value? It also says on the coin sleeve " .750 silver and .0965 oz ASW.

Old coins and banknotes (01/08/2008)

Hi there: My mother in law just gave me a big bag full of coins from her parents that passed away. Actually her older sister had gotten them when their parents died and her sister passed away just before Christmas. There are many silver dollars dated 1881, 1883 and 1886. Several Indian head pennies, buffalo nickels, two dollar notes, half centavos (Filipinis) etc. There is one coin I cannot find any information on: Deutsches Reich 1876 Zwei Mark (on one side with a family crest image it appears) on the other side it says: Freie Hansestadt Hamburg and the picture is of two lions on either side of what appears to be a castle and perhaps another crest. Any help you could provide on this coin would be appreciated. I live in NJ and would like to take these to a dealer to be appraised, can you recommend one? I appreciate your help in advance. Suzann

German Coin from Prussia (10/18/2007)

I have a coin that I have not been able to identify. On one side, it has three busts stacked on each other. Around this it reads: Wilhelm I Friedrich III Wilhelm II. The reverse side has an eagle. The date looks like 1888 or 1898 ( the coin is not in good shape, so it is hard to read). It is difficult to read the rest of the coin. Is this enough information for you to assist me in identifying this coin?

RARE PENNIES (09/23/2007)

Can you please look at these pennies and give me some idea of what the value of these two unique, one of a kind pennies would be. 1936 Penny - Has the letters "ERT" indented and backwards on Lincoln's shoulder. After the ERT and after the T, there's a little portion of the "Y" and in the rim it appears to be an "L". On the backside of the coin, the "A" in America is very narrow and is not consistent with the other a's. 1951D Penny - On the front, the date and Lincoln's Jacket are not consistent with other pennies from that year. Some of the words "IN GOD WE TRUST" look as if they appear to be molded into the rim of the penny. On the backside of this coin, on the right side, the wheat stalk on the top has the grain raised off to the right. This coin has been un circulated for approximately 40 years as it has been in my coin book since boyhood. Any insite and help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Tim Ash

German Coins (04/28/2006)

Hello there, I wonder if you could help me. I am not interested in trading in coins,  but with doing some family research I have come accross documents that
have detailed money as in values and taxes. Unfortunately I don't quite understand it. There is reference to pfennig which are pennies, but also Grote (?)
Guiden or is it gulden. eg the tax required was 10 guidens 25 grote and 1 pfennig. This is dated  1525. If you could erhaps explain this I would be most oblidged Robyn Armstrong (Mrs) New Zealand

E-Mail Grote was a currency unit in northern german countries like Bremen and Oldenburg. The first Groten (=Groschen) coins were issued in 14 th Century. In Bremen 72 Grote was 1 Thaler during the 19 th century. Guiden is also a currency unit. More about Gulden
