Antique Collector - Coins, Money and Banknotes


Collecting banknotes is like having a piece of history in your hands. Some collectors collect on the basis of the coins' future perceived value, some collect coins and notes coming from just one particular period or country, some are only concerned with metal type and some enjoy researching a coins historical value. Many stamp and coin collectors are now looking at banknotes as the new collecting frontier.

A banknote collection rarely fails to arouse interest and admiration. Even small, inexpensive collections can boast exquisite printing and graphic design, demonstrating the exceptional artistic skill of the artists and engravers. The actual manufacturing process is a closely guarded secret in an attempt to make forgery difficult. Banknotes have shown good investment potential, as some have seen a growth in value of thousands of percent since the end of the last war!
