Collect Coins and Make Profit

By: hunter
Collecting coins has long been a favorite pastime of many. Whether you like old pennies or coins from other countries, people have had this hobby for years and years. But, when the state quarters came out, many people added them to their collections as well. Collecting state quarters is a fun hobby, but they probably won't ever make you any real money because they're very common.

The way you can make a profit from collecting coins is if they're rare or hard to find. Old coins are your best bet because if you choose state quarters, they're all too recent and easy to locate. So, stick with coins that are from centuries ago. They won't be easy to find, so you will have to dedicate some time to searching for them.

Antique stores, auctions, word of mouth and the internet are great sources for locating these types of coins. Collecting coins that are very old can be exciting but it can also be a little costly. Very old coins, unlike state quarters will be highly sought after and will sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars. But, if you want to add them to your collection, it will be worth it.

International coins also are of great value to many people. These are much more interesting than state quarters and will have a higher profit for you if you decide to eventually sell your collection. Again, collecting coins of this nature could be hard for you to find, so check out the internet to locate them.

Use an online auction to have access to thousands of coins from all across the world. You might be able to buy a very old coin or one that is from the 19th century. But, no matter if you're collecting coins as a hobby or want to make a profit, you will have fun searching for them and will learn new things about the era they're from!
