World numismatic coins

Numismatics originated in Europe in the Renaissance. One of the first numismats was the famous Italian poet Francesco Petrarch. He amassed an impressive collection of ancient Roman coins, but then donated part of it to Emperor Charles IV in 1355.

At that time, the money of ancient Greece and the ancient Roman Empire was already a rarity. But it wasn't until the 18th century that Professor Heinrich Schultz became the first scientist to regularly study and lecture on world coins. In fact, he laid the foundation for the scientific approach. Since then, the boom in collecting coins has not faded away.

World numismatics has very famous people in its ranks. For example, Nicole Kidman is a serious collector of ancient Jewish money. Some of them were created before our era. After all, the passion for coins is an excellent and long-term investment tool. Their value is constantly growing.

And one of the most famous numismatists was Art Cole Jirel, who lived in the early 20th century. He collected about 1000 coins, looking only for rare coins. The lowest-priced item in his collection cost $15,000. It seems to be not so much. But at that time, about 30 Ford cars could be bought with this money! One tiny piece of metal was worth 30 cars!

THE RAREST COIN IN THE WORLD

Novice numismatists sometimes think that one should look for rare world coins in archaeological excavation sites – ancient castles, caves etc. But it’s not always the case. For example, one young man from the USA could not even imagine that a lunch in an ordinary cafe would enrich him with several thousand dollars (and in the past it was a very large amount). He noticed a 5-cent coin that was issued in 1913 in his change. It seemed like an ordinary coin, minted relatively recently. But their batch came out in a small circulation and is highly valued by numismatists. Now such a small piece of metal costs about 3 million dollars.

One of the rarest coins in the world is 1930 Australian penny, since only six of them were issued. Another such rare piece is the golden "Double Eagle", which was released in 1933 and sent immediately for remelting. Several of these coins disappeared and appeared with collectors at the end of the 20th century.

Have you noticed that most of the world's rarest coins are from the 20th century? You can hold any coin in your hand and not even guess that it is of value for collectors. It is important to consult with numismatic experts who will help you in determining the value of coins, selling or buying them.

Most expensive coin in the world

In 2020, a 100-kilogram gold coin was stolen from a museum in Berlin. It was the "Large Maple Leaf" issued in 2007 by the Royal Canadian Mint. According to experts, its cost is 3,700,000 euros. A fortune. The material for this coin was 999 gold, and on the coinage there was an image of Queen Elizabeth 2.

But the "Big Maple Leaf" is not world’s most expensive coin. The valuation criteria for the coin is not the amount of gold. Rarity, uniqueness, demand, and many other factors that you can learn about on our website and from Violity specialists.

On a global scale, the title of the most expensive coin in the world is held by the "Double Eagle". It was sold for $18,900,000 in June 2021. "Eagle" broke the previous record of a coin with the romantic name "Loose Hair" ($10,016,875) by almost 2 times.

THE OLDEST COIN IN THE WORLD

It is difficult for us today to imagine a time when there was no money and there was only barter. Then bird feathers, grain, salt, tobacco, dried fish, animal skins were performing the function of money. According to Herodotus, the world’s oldest coins, which we know about, began to be minted in Lydia, which was located on the territory of modern Turkey. These coins were called staters - the oldest coins in the world, minted from gold and silver. They were regulated by the state, and there was already a desperate struggle against counterfeiters. On one side was a lion's head with an open mouth, turned to the right. This image was located in a square, which was a trace of a hammer blow during minting. The imprint of the hammer served as a sign of authenticity.

Just one small coin can turn a person into a millionaire. The coin price depends on the degree of its rarity, safety, circulation, demand. If the copy is in good condition, then this greatly increases its value. Therefore, coins from the same batch can cost differently. For example, one of the Lydian staters was sold in New York in 2012 for $650,000. Although the rest of the Lydian coins are estimated at no more than $ 2,000.

After all, the most valuable coins of the world were found by accident. Sometimes the owners were not even aware of their true value. For example, two of the rarest coins of Edward 3 "Double Leopard" (1344) were found by two English schoolchildren in the river in 1857. Now the cost of such coin is about 7 million dollars.

In 1992, amateur treasure hunter Eric Laus was asked to look for a hammer lost in a field. But he did not find a hammer, he found a treasure consisting of Roman coins, 565 gold and 14,191 silver. The treasure was estimated in total at 2.6 million dollars.

To find old coins, it is not at all necessary to own a metal detector, the main thing is to be in the right place. In 2011, Tanya Hels discovered rare coins in the state library of the German town of Passau. In the cache, which the woman accidentally stumbled upon, were very rare Byzantine, Greek and Roman coins.
