Building Coin Sets
Possibly the best way to invest in rare coins is to do what collectors do: build sets. Complete rare coin sets often sell for more than the total value of the individual coins, this tends to be more valuable than collections of unrelated coins.
How to Build a Set
The two most common sets are assembled around a coin type or a series. A set includes coins sharing a specific characteristic such as design, designer, or denomination. A series set includes each date and mint of a particular coin. Sets can also be organized by first or last year that a coin was issued, die variety, historical period, mint mark, or year.
