Buying old coins in good condition may be a good investment, but not all vintage coins are suitable as collector items. There may be too many similars on the market, or the numismatic societies may simply lack interest in it. There is also the hazard of purchasing forgeries which is why only buying collectible coins that have proof of authenticity and grading is a safe path for the beginner.
It might be difficult to know what to buy, and more importantly – where to buy with confidence. I suggest you focus on vintage bullion that is part of a historic find such as the Saddle Ridge Hoard. Items from this well known treasure-find are sold with graded ratings through the Art and Coin section on Amazon, which is a safe and trustworthy marketplace for these highly sought-after items.
Shown here is the 1875 Liberty Head 20 dollar coin, in excellent condition from the Saddle Ridge collection. Minted 139 years ago, this is genuine money that was used during the Wild West era when Sitting Bull lived, in the year that Congress passed the Civil Rights Act. It isn’t cheap, but good investments seldom are.
