As you may be aware, I have two expensive competing hobbies - the coins and the travel. After giving this careful thought over many days, I've come to the conclusion that collecting one coin-per-ruler is not a sustainable project for the young guy who wants to visit every country in the world. As I tick more rulers off my list, so the cost of the next most affordable ruler I need increases. There only rulers I don't own have a price-tag in the thousands to tens of thousands. I have estimated that purchasing the remaining rulers would cost around $250,000 (best case scenario) - and that is excluding the rulers you will never see in auctions: like Olybrius, Glycerius, Silbannicus etc. An alternative collecting focus will be equally unsustainable, given my love of rarity and bright shiny things, and not having so much interest in owning more modest treasures. Big Greek tetradrachms, gold staters, Hadrian drachma are all themes I would love to fulfill - but, at the end of the day, it's just more money spent on things that will impress you and I, but nobody I have met in real life. Money that could go towards my travel passion - I really can live my dream to visit every country in the world, but I can never fulfill my dream to own every coin I want. The Roman portrait series project was an interesting and worthwhile endeavour - I learnt a lot and enjoyed being custodian of these coins for a while. Gosh, I wish I had them all. I wish I had an EID MAR denarius too, and @TIF 's Dolphin-Man coin! But you can't have everything in life, so I have had to make a decision. I would still like to enjoy coins though - and I intend to set up my own cute little online coin store to see if it can be a viable business. In the meantime, I am getting advice from major auction houses regarding my high end stuff - who have access to more high end collectors than I do. I intend to sell the midrange stuff myself. This isn't the right place to advertise - however, I would like to open the discussion about your selling experiences. What has worked for you when the time has come to sell?
