    Ancient Coin Values

    In the world of ancient coins it is extremely difficult to know what a good price may or may not be. Specialists and dealers will develop a feel for the market with experience but the casual collector, the broad collector, or someone just wishing to add a few nice pieces has no idea where to start. Even within a series there are many varieties and types of coins which make understanding the market and the value of the coins difficult.

    We have created free price guides for the Eastern Greeks in four series. Baktrian, Parthian, Sasanian, and the Huns. More guides will soon be issued covering the Greek world and then the Roman. We catalog, parse, identify, store, and analyze tens of thousands of public sales records in order to generate these guides to help the collector better understand the value of ancient coins.

    Selling Coins to a Dealer - What can I expect ?

    I have included this for one reason - all too often collectors have little or no realistic idea of what they can expect to receive if they go to sell their coins to a dealer. Collectors will look up the values of their coins in various price guides, walk into a dealer's shop offering to sell their cherished collection and then walk out feeling insulted, angry and thinking the dealer was trying to rip them off. Sometimes this is true - other times it is not.

    Dealers do not pay full retail for coins they are buying. Dealers operate a business, they must buy low and sell high if they are to stay in business. And whether collectors realize it or not, the majority of a dealer's business is conducted by selling to other dealers. Therefore when they buy coins from a collector they must do so at a price that will allow them to sell those coins to yet another dealer at a wholesale price and still show a profit. This obviously means that the price the collector can expect to receive will be less than wholesale. That number can often be as much as 30% - 40% less than full retail.

    So even when you are attempting to sell your coins to a dealer that is very trusted and highly respected in the numismatic community, you can expect pretty much what I have disussed above. The following link is used to provide an example of this, it is a list of buy prices being offered by a coin dealer.

    I in no way recommend or endorse this particular dealer - nor do I mean to imply that the prices he offers are out of line or too low. I merely present this as an example.

    Great Collections has an auction archive for their sales. Heritage goes back further which is nice to see the price trend for a particular coin one may be interested in. Population reports from the TPGs are misleading since numbers don't take into account multiple submissions. Auction results can be helpful in letting one know how often a particular coin date/grade comes up at auction.
