Exciting advantages of collecting rare and ancient numismatic coins

Collecting coins can be a great way to add to a strong and healthy portfolio, but it’s important you do your research to find the best coins for your needs.  And with so much to consider and so much research that is needed, it could become overwhelming if not done correctly.

Turning to the numismatic experts at International Coin Alliance can help you discover the advantages of coin collecting with an entire suite of services to provide guidance on how to best build your portfolio.

Whether building your own personal collection or acquiring pieces for future generations, there are many benefits associated with collecting in coins including:

  • Coin collecting is a private purchase where social security numbers are not needed. This means there are no government reports or filings on purchases.
  • After your purchase, coins are transferred (shipped) to you immediately. They are not held by International Coin Alliance or any other entity.
  • Coins are 100% portable and can travel with you nationally and internationally.
  • Coins have additional value points like historical value, collectible value and numismatic value so you feel confident that you’ve made the right acquisitions for your future.
