Step 1

Education: Every Numismatic coin in existence has a story tied to it; maybe there is some interesting facet of history behind the figure featured on the coin; or perhaps there was an aspect of debate behind the coin. In any case you must first learn everything you can about the coin before making a purchase.

Step 2

Picking Your Niche: Like a good book, coins hold more information than just what is suggested by their ‘cover.’

Step 3

Investing in Numismatics Can Be a Wonderful

Investment…For the Patient

When it comes to investing in rare, beautiful coins—one thing to always keep in mind, is that it’s a waiting game. Here at Global Monetary Reserve, we’ve seen every type of investor: the one who want immediate returns, the one who can sit on his investment until retirement, the one that does it for the love of collecting…etc. While you can see return of your investment early on in your purchase, its not the norm, and typically we advise clients to hold on to their investment for 2-5 years before thinking of selling. If one thing can be said about Numismatic investing is that—the longer you wait, the more you’ll make.
