I recently found a Montreal Canadiens Centennial Loonie in my change recently. I’ve never seen one before, am yet to see one again. Is it a rare coin, which would appreciate in value? I have a friend that collects coins, and if I were to trade it, should i trade it face value, for more, or just keep it hoping it will appreciate in value later?
I consider modern proof coins, statehood quarters, the Presidential dollar series, etc., as collector coins. I mean they were produced mainly to appeal to coin collectors. Do you think these coins will become ‘valuable’ or appeal as a possible investment? I would rather collect coins that are rare (old, scarce, errors, etc) and were not produced to be enticed by the coin collecting community.
I was recently looking at currency items on Ebay, and I came across a 1999 $25 dollar Proof Gold coin that was for sale, and noticed it had a “Buy It Now” price of $2,355 dollars. I am fairly new to collecting coins, so I was hoping someone could please possibly help me out with a question I had about that coin. Is this coin a “very rare” coin? Is it because it’s been graded by chance? Or is it a rare coin as far as the year? I have searched all over the web trying to find this out, and realized several sites that deal in gold coins had several $25.00 gold coins for sell, but the 1999 coin wasn’t available in their lists, they had surrounding years, but skipped 1999. Is this coin a “very rare” coin? I would greatly appreciate your help & response to this, It’s driving me crazy trying to find out an honest response by searching the web, It interest me because i believe i may also have this coin in a collection i have in storage, but mine has not been graded. Does having the coin graded greatly increase the value as well? Again, I would really appreciate any help on this, and look forward to your response. I Would Appreciate An Urgent Honest Response!
