Numismatic coins tend to carry a value higher than its precious metal content and face value. Many factors are involved when determining whether a coin is numismatic, however, numismatic coins commonly have a limited mintage, a specific variation or there may have been an error during the minting process. Our experts have been identifying and grading numismatic coins for over a decade – so feel free to take advantage of our free service!
Commemorative coins are issued to honor and celebrate historical events or issues throughout our past. These coins are mass produced with the intention of regular circulation and are not classified as numismatic. There are many commemorative coins that contain precious metal content within them, increasing their value.
Proof coins were fashioned as distinct early samples of issued coins throughout history in order to assist with checking dies and for extensive archival use. Today, proof coins consist of coins minted in large numbers with the intention of being sold to collectors or numismatists. Nearly all countries have issued proof coinage. Majority of these coins are worth their value in gold or silver, however, there are some cases in which they can be worth more.
These coins generally follow one of these classifications:
- Coins released to the public but not intended for circulation. These coins have not been handled by human hands.
- Coins that are graded by a reputable company with a grade of Mint State (MS) 60+
- Uncirculated coins are struck with specific adjustments during the minting process, which results in a more satin-like finish
All uncirculated coins are available for purchase from mints or coins dealers. Again, these coins have never been handled by human hands.
Is your coin authentic?
There are many methods that can be used when determining whether or not your coin is authentic. The simplest approach is to verify the weight, diameter and metal content of the coin. Generally, when coins are manufactured by Mints such as Royal Canadian Mint, US Mint, or Royal Mint the weight, diameter and metal used are precise and consistent.
Counterfeit coins will usually not be consistent with one of the three factors regarding the coins weight, diameter and/or metal content. It is difficult to match the exact quality of the coin based on the sophisticated and precise mintage qualities that originate from government issued mints.
