The coin market has continued to show some consolidation in 2018, continuing the trend we have seen for the last few years. The Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) estimated that in 2017 the size of the Rare Coin market was about 3.5 billion dollars. This is down from 4 Billion dollars in 2016.
2017 marks my 30th year in the rare coin and bullion business, and in that time I’ve had the opportunity to observe and analyze many clients’ buying and selling patterns when it comes to bullion investing. Unfortunately, one of the patterns I see way too often is that clients tend to buy high and sell low.
