Feb 25, 2008
Antique coins whether gold or any other material, are very precious and therefore very costly too. Though these have no currency value now, still the trend is that the prices of these out-dated coins are beyond imagination. No one would deny the value of buying these to have a good collection, as these are to date considered one of the most valuable things found on this earth. The antique coin prices have, therefore, been a subject of curiosity and eagerness among people.

Antique coins are of various types and are found at many places. The coins that are available until now are made of gold, silver, nickel, copper and among these also there are a lot many varieties. Some coins are said to be cents, some are dollar while some are known as commemoratives. The cents that are available till now are half cents, Lincoln cents, Flying Eagle and Indian cents, large cents etc. However, apart from these there are some other types of cents too in which we have the Two to Three cents and the three Cent silvers. All these cents were available for a particular period of time after which these are not regarded as currencies but are preserved as memorable pieces. The commemoratives are also known as the Modern Commemoratives, Silver Commemoratives and gold Commemoratives. Based on the types and the design or sculpts in it, the antique coin prices are decided and also vary from each other.

Apart from the above mentioned coin types we have Dimes too and these are divided as the Early dimes, Early Half Dimes, Mercury Dimes, Roosevelt Dimes, Seated Half Dimes, Barber Dimes, Seated Dimes etc. Moreover, if we sit to discuss about the antique coins that are available till now, it would take really long.

Similarly, the coin market is also not that static and easy to grab. When there is a rise or fall in the antique coin prices, it can be unpredictable. Therefore, everything lies in the hands of the buyer who needs to be able to judge the valuation.
