Hello. I am new to coins. I have owned gold and silver in the past as an investment. I want to start a coin collection. I am thinking about collecting ancient Greek coins. Are there lots of fakes with these types of coins? Also Almost everything I read says to by the most expensive coin I can afford, why is this so. At what price range will my coin hold it's value? Thanks for any opinions in advance.
Also are there any highly recommended books I could get to learn more?
Welcome to the neighborhood!
Though I don't collect ancients, there are plenty of people here who do.
Naturally, any collector should buy the best they can afford, it doesn't matter if it is ancients or moderns. Note that I didn't say expensive. That sounds like seller's hype to me.
Welcome, you'll find that collecting as opposed to investing has it's own return. Good luck.
