First, just because a coin is old does not mean it is worth more. You can purchase ancient coins that are thousands of years old for only a few dollars. Secondly, just because the coin is composed of copper does not mean it is worth less than a coin that is made out of gold
Investing in coins, whether bullion or numismatic, can be both rewarding and profitable for collectors. At the same time, those rare, numismatic coins do not make up a large market, so collect first for fun before considering it an investment
Local coin dealers are natural places to visit first when selling coins. Mostly you’ll sell low and medium-value coins here. When you go to a dealer, look at their stock. If they have a lot of coins made of the same metal and of similar quality to the ones you’re selling, chances are they’ll give you a fairer price.
