Im the same age as you. I havent sold anything but I try to keep an investment perspective for when I eventually sell if that day ever comes. But I collect historical coins with original attractive nice color problem free surfaces if possible. Imo When it comes time to sell everyone will point out any flaw to bring your price down. Find coins You love . Youll be happier in the long run if you do

That's some great advice given which holds true even over the years. I agree to all what's been said.

I invest in the stock market/ 401k but majority of my investment are low cost stock index funds.

I buy coins as a hobby, based on value, worth I believe I can get some of my cost back , but I hope my kids keep and in 70 years get a lot of money back, but I'll be dead and I hope to leave them other money rather than coins.

Kinda funny that this post is from 2012. I was thinking about some of the coins I have bought over the years and they really haven't appreciated at all. My stocks have gone through the roof and my graded key comics as well but coins, not so much. I'll be focusing on buying only key dates to cut down on clutter and improve odds of appreciation this time around.

key dates are expensive and are not guaranteed to go up in value. I have a few and they have all gone down in value the last 10 years or so.

I completed a Registry set of Peace dollars in 2014 of both NGC and PCGS coins. There was nothing special about set as it was white Peace dollars that ranged from AU55 to MS64. I paid $4355 for the set. I sold the set in December of 2019 on eBay as individual coins for a total of $3585. I lost 17.7 % plus eBay fees, paypal fees, and shipping cost. For the same time period the PCGS 3000 coin index went down 17%, so the 17.7% that I lost follows the general trend of the coin market. The biggest single loss was the Peace dollar key date 1928 NGC MS62 that I paid $599 and sold for $399. This was not an investment as I was collecting something that I liked.
