Starting a Rare Coin Collection

Kenneth Goldman, coin dealer and expert appraiser, possesses experience with rare coins totaling more than 50 years. Kenneth Goldman continues to help collectors across the country begin and build collections of rare coins.

For the beginning coin collector, building a collection may seem like a daunting task. There are countless different kinds of coins available on the market, some rare and others quite common. Many collectors enter the hobby seeking to acquire rare coins, which they can later sell. A beginning collector can take his or her first steps by acquiring readily available yet older currency designs. A penny roll from a bank, for example, is likely to yield at least 15 “wheat pennies,” which were minted between 1909 and 1958.

Once a collector has begun to acquire these older coins, he or she can begin to shop for rare coins. Research is an important first step in this endeavor: a collector will need to be familiar with the value of rare coins in certain categories so as not to be overcharged. After perusing a few books and websites, the collector can begin to seek out rare coins at online or live shops or coin shows. The number of available coins may be overwhelming, so a collector may wish to limit himself or herself at first to a certain design type and seek out different design types within that denomination. Then, the collector can expand to different denominations and build a collection in an organized, yet goal-oriented manner.

Kenneth Goldman, president of Kenneth Goldman Inc. has been assisting collectors and investors for nearly 50 years in the orderly acquisition as well as dispersing of coin collections. We would be pleased to send you a brochure describing Mr. Goldman’s experience.

Mr. Goldman is a life member of the ANA and has been a member for over 35 years of the Professional Numismatics Guild (PNG).

In addition, Mr. Goldman has been a qualified expert witness for the Federal Trade Commission and can help with any and all problems that may come up regarding rare coins.
