The value of mint coins to numismatists and investors
The history of mint coins begins deep in the 1940s. These coins are specially struck coins that are manufactured in limited numbers for the purpose of collecting rather than for circulation. Mint coins are therefore harder to come by than regular coins that are struck in large numbers and widely circulated. The Scoin Shop, an online rare coin dealer, stocks a diverse selection of mint coins, available to purchase in store or via our secure e-commerce website.
Mint coins are produced in small numbers at a time, and come straight from a particular minting facility and are designed primarily to be sold to numismatists, avid coin collectors and gold investors. Proof mint coins are not readily circulated; they have never entered the coin investing industry of circulation and therefore, these coins havent been touched by anyone before its owners. Early mint coins, after production, were placed in cardboard containers when being shipped to different coin dealers and clients respectively. It is only after the late 1950s that they were packaged in cellophane.
