Numismatic Coins

Published

on

Some time ago, we went on a rant regarding the rare coin investment fraud, and how it claimed unsuspecting victims.

The simple truth is, most rare coin investors do not understand what they are buying, they do not know the hidden costs involved, plus they do not be aware there are liquidity issues. Today, we’ll concentrate on how rare coins have got performed as investments in latest history. The news is not good. Basically, coin collectors are an aging group, and also young rich collectors of old money are more inclined to collect paper currency instead of to the younger generations, paper money is money coins.

To put it simply, to the younger generations, paper money is money. The old-timers consider coins as money. And it’s been pretty much from the 1970s onward. Pretty much downhill ever since. For this exercise, in cost rates in 1981 and 2001 for a price, commissions, markups, and fees. We’ll compare wholesale inquire rates in 1981 and 2001 for a coin since 1981, and several rare coins which were sold as MS-65 quality.

Even price comparisons are not perfect. For one, grading criteria have changed radically since 1981, and many rare coins which were sold as MS-65 grade back then will not meet today’s strict criteria for that grade. Additionally, we’ve ignored, generally, the more common coins that have performed badly, and the high-cost rarities which are available, but not museum grade pieces that lack dependable pricing information & dependable trading prices.

Usually genuinely rare, high grade coins selections for investors. Sadly, what’s sold isn’t usually genuinely rare, high-grade coins. Coin sales firms and agents thrive by selling common, off that the shelf stuff and story coins which sold contemporary coins in high grade, obscure mint errors. We’re ignoring the fact that many unknowledgeable coin investors also hoard coins, rolls and also bags of prevalent coins, and the entire gamut of second-grade material that small varieties, to try to provide rare coins an opportunity by frequently tried to provide rare coins an opportunity by.

We’ve tried to give rare coins a chance by focusing on grade type and also commemorative coins in the whole assortment of U.S. Maybe that’s the only way to go for this field.

First what’s a stock buyback?

A stock buyback is simply when a public traded company buys shares back from the open market.

It is common for businesses to buy back shares for several reasons

  • Help boost the value of their shares. This works because when there is less shares available it influences the price of that asset.
  • Boost earnings before and upcoming report.
  • Cause speculation on the value of their asset

In the past year it has been very common for companies to buy back shares. this is often helpful in rewarding investors.

Buffet knows something you dont!

Berkshire Hathaway is a company owned by Warren Buffett who is know for buying stake in companies he believes will grow in value with time. This time they arent buying shares of other companies but are investing in itself with approximately $1 billion worth of stock buybacks.

Euro to replace the dollar?

there is a probability

The euro is currently 1/3 of global transaction volume, and some think its potentially possible that the Euro coud be placed to surpass the dollar in importance. The euro like the dollar is a fiat currency that is used for trade between european nations and their allies when convenient. With sanctions tarifs and general economic bullying becoming the norm for america and its dollar, some nations are choosing to look for ways to escape dollar hegemony.

It’s not likely to really happen

The euro is a strong currency but it has little chance of becoming the worlds reserve currency. It is more likely that folks will choose to move away from any financial institution that can basically starve your population with financial and trade sanctions. In my opinion cryptocurrency will find it’s way into the worlds economy so that users can escape the easily restricted fiat currencies. Value based in valuless debt notes is on its way out and this will probably be the segway into the next financial crises.

Can cryptocurrency survive a gobal financial crisis?

Is cryptocurrency a hedge against economic downturns?

The answer to this question is quite controversial, some would say yes because this is what crypto was made for; while others would chime that crypto is unproven in a downturn and will need to survive its first one before we can feel at ease about its survivability. Much of your perception on whether bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general will survive aneconomic crisis, is based on where you stand about cryptocurrency in general. Today we will talk about the possible survivability of cryptocurency in a crisis.

Is Venezuela a test case

Right now in Aouth America there are several financial crises transpiring that may create possible examples of how crypto will fare in a financial storm. In venezuela reports are coing out that many people are choosing to use cryptocurrency to pay for life expenses. The national government under President Maduro have begun to implement their own state backed cryptocurrency called the petro. The Petro is an asset pegged to the price of a barrel of oil and the Venezuelan government hopes it will help them escape dollar tyrany. Hyperinflation has taken its toll on Venezuelans but many of them were informed enough to seek financial refuge with cryptocurrencies. This is a great example of how when value leaves fiat the holders will seek to run to other assets to store value; that exodus now has cryptocurrency as an outlet for the fleeing fiat users.

We may see a big example soon enough

Much of the world is currently on the precipice of a financial downturn and if america keeps behaving the way it has been then we will likely see a major crises emerge in the next 5 years or so. some analysts see a move away from the dollar as a potential catalyst whilst others proclaim that the trade war and student debt will push us into the downturn of this decade. Unlike those times prior, now cryptocurrency has created and outlet for those funds that “dissappear” from markets as the major stakeholders cash out. The financial bigwigs are likely going to enter the cryptospace as they will soon see it as a way to maintain some value in the crises they create.
