US coins vs. foreign currency
When buying older US coins like dimes, nickels, quarters, and half dollars, you have both a silver coin as well as legal tender in the US. However, the style and value of some foreign coins can help make your coin collection that much more engaging to look at.
Mint sets are available for US coins, making another great collection addition.
Silver versus gold
Gold coins, such as American Eagles (aka gold eagles), are among the most sought-after gold coins in the Kansas City area. Sterling silver eagles and Morgan Silver Dollars give the coin collectors something that is both valuable and easily obtainable, monetarily speaking.
Commemorative coins, like gold Chinese Pandas, are a great collectible. Krugerrands and Canadian Maple Leafs are other examples of gold and silver coins that make excellent additions for a coin collector.
There are many other ways to think about your coin collection, and it’s easy to forget about rounding it out with gold & silver bullion. Silver bars from 1 troy ounce ingots, and go up from there to 100 oz silver bars, and larger.
When purchasing gold & silver bullion or rare coins, gold coins, etc., for investment purposes, you may be able to save on the sales tax if you are a Missouri resident. (as always, see your professional financial advisor for investment advice)
