Indian numismatics is on the rise in India, most probably due to a growing middle class. There is a huge volume of old time research into Indian numismatics to help them.
Coin collecting is on the rise in Asia areas is on the rise for the same reason. Asian collectors seem to place more emphasis on modern precious metal collector issues.
The Perth Mint
has been aware of the growth of the Asian collector base, and promotes many of their new issues to them.
Growth of the collector base in the Middle East has been slower, because these folks have other societal problems that affect their lives to a greater extent.
That is a pity, because a huge volume of research has been done, with regard to Islamic numismatics.
The growth of the collector base in the North America, Europe and Australasia is also growing, but at a slower rate than either India or Asia. These markets are relatively mature.
Nevertheless, by looking at what countries CCF members come from, it is very obvious that the North American collector market is by far the biggest.
