Even in the school course of economics today they talk about the fact that rare goods have the greatest value. In addition to the gifts of nature in the form of various minerals, precious stones and metals, as well as real estate, antiques have a high price today. These are paintings, and books, and coins. The latter will be discussed in more detail below.
Which coins are valued now?
Most often, avid numismatists want to replenish their collection with copies from small or test runs. In this case, the earlier the year of release, the better. Sometimes we are talking about real records: sometimes people are ready to pay millions for a single coin. So, in April 2010, the antique salon "Ekaterina" held an auction at which a trial silver ruble issued in 1806 went under the hammer. It's hard to believe, but the collector paid 120 thousand dollars for it! Here are the coins that are most valued right now: very rare and old.
It is interesting that in our country numismatists prefer domestic items. Foreign money is not in great demand: at least no one will give fabulous money for it.
If you are wondering what coins are now valued very highly, then the unequivocal answer here is the times of Imperial Russia. However, it must be remembered here: it is important that the preservation is good. If you have coins from, for example, treasures or private collections, you are very lucky. However, if you find "money" in the ground, you can get a good amount for it only if it is minted from gold or silver - in other words, from metals that are not susceptible to corrosion.
If you still have Soviet money, then the question is quite logical: “What coins of the USSR are now valued?” Not all of them are of great value. Numismatists give the greatest preference to those copies that are not only in good condition, but have not been used at all. This is determined by specialists with the help of special devices. They are even given a special designation - UNC.
Some Soviet-era coins can be found in the ground today. So, for example, more and more often copies are being found with a face value of 2 kopecks made in 1925. Their circulation was small, but today they are not of great value, since it is quite easy to stumble upon them. But the coins of 1958 and 1947 sold to numismatists can significantly improve your financial situation. Then there were many copies that were released in a trial run or did not go into circulation at all.
Finally, it is important to talk about what Russian coins are now valued. chiefIn this way, of course, these are those of them, during the stamping of which an error was made (defective, in other words). These are hard to find, so check out these 2001 pieces:
- 50 kopecks. Numismatists are ready to pay about 100 thousand rubles for them.
- 1 ruble and 2 rubles - 25 thousand rubles each.
Coins from 2003 also have value if:
- 2 rubles – 15,000 rubles;
- 1 ruble – 13,000 rubles;
- 5 rubles – 8,000 rubles.
Thus, looking at the money in your hands or lying on the ground, you should often remember which coins are now valued.
