From numismatics to auction trading of coins

Numismatics – collecting coins, one of the most interesting and exciting collections. In general, numismatics is a bit different from collecting, it involves the identification of cultural monuments, the history of money circulation, as well as the restoration of gaps in history as a science. And collectors collect banknotes relating to specific countries or to an important historical moment.

Others, especially travelers, collect money in the countries they have visited. There are special collectible coins made of precious materials, which are issued in small editions for collectibles, but for the auction of gold coins, coins from the distant past are in great demand, especially antiquities, even if they are minted not from gold. Sometimes collectors collect banknotes of certain categories.

During the Renaissance, numismatics arose, however, as a science, it was already formed in the 19th century. G. Grote gave rise to numismatics as a social historical science. Amateur collectors do not really think about historical facts, then, what does attract people? Surely every coin carries secrets and riddles that people want to comprehend and plunge in while they were in circulation. Mysterious inscriptions, images and signs attract people to purchase coins.

Where can you get these mysterious and mysterious items? For example, in Moscow, and in other cities, in antique shops you can buy the rarest, and thus expensive items. The better preserved copy, the more its price. Most often copper and aluminum specimens are poorly preserved, and it is better – from silver, gold, platinum and other precious metals. Their value is very diverse, the purchase of coins at auction can cost either too cheap or too expensive.

It is the envy of the quality, safety, metal, and of course, of historical value. For example, the price of the Konstantinovsky ruble is very high, there were five of them all. Although the story is not familiar to the emperor Constantine I, but its five copies are considered very rare and fine work. And for a coin with a face value of 10 kopecks, issued in 1990, at an auction they pay from 1,000 to 2,000 rubles. Despite the fact that numismatics are a dear hobby, people still get coins, this once again confirms that secrets have magical powers.
