Other Collectors | Numismatics

Gold and silver coins can basically be divided into two categories - investment coins and numismatic coins (collector coins). Numismatic coins have a much higher premium to the precious metal value due to different factors such as their historical significance, the particular theme and elaboration or the limited circulation.

The price of bullion coins (investment coins), however, is calculated primarily by the composition and weight of the contained precious metal. As a result, it is relatively close to the spot - the current price of precious metals. Investment coins are often produced in a very high or unlimited circulation, which makes them rather insignificant for collectors.

Numismatics

The word Numismatics comes from the ancient Greek language and means the lawful, but also coin or currency. Numismatics is used as a generic term for all areas dealing with the science of money. However, in general usage, coin collecting is referred to as numismatics. It is not just coins that serve as currency, but also special collector coins that are brought to market on special occasions or as a series, usually in gold or silver.

Semi-Numismatics

In modern numismatics, which deals with coinage from the twentieth century, a subcategory has now developed in the form of semi-numismatic coins. The coins are originally issued as bullion coins with a small surcharge and develop into numismatic coins as soon as the collector's value of the coin rises.

Investment coins with limited edition, unique themes and changing motifs belong to the category of semi-numismatics. Special issues and anniversary editions are also part of the semi-numismatics.

Most well-known semi-numismatic coins:

China Panda

Australian Kangaroo

Queen's Beasts series- (Great Britain)

Lunar I series- (Australia)

Lunar II series- (Australia)
