About us – Valuable Coin Collecting & Numismatic Magazine started as a personal project dedicated to disseminate information about coin collecting and numismatics. Eventually the former blog has evolved into the format of an online magazine, and the number of people of our team has been increasing.


Why this blog? Our inspiration

The purpose of this magazine is just to explain everything we have learned during the many years of passion for antique coins, both in buying and selling and in collecting. As we like to know what we buy and have as much information as possible, we have been studying and applying the advice of numismatic experts for quite some time. Thanks to them we have achieved an important collection of old coins from the United States, Mexico, Spain and other countries, as well as many other coins for collection.

What this website offers

The aim of this website is none other than to provide information:

  • Simple
  • Directly from
  • Reliable
  • Updated

about old coins and their buying and selling value.

What does not offer

This website is of an informational nature, so:

  • We don’t buy coins or sell coins: We use other forums for that. The philosophy of this website is only 100% information.
  • We don’t make appraisals: there are great professionals much more qualified than us. One of the purposes of this website is to facilitate free contact between coin holders and professional numismatic appraisers.

Why this website?

Always based on the work of those who know: experts in coin collecting and professionals in numismatics, we wanted to make an informational page about this complex world of ancient coins.

To gather the information required by a website of this type we have turned to many sources. However, We’d like to point out the references that have been pretty useful:

We often read @coinsblog and some excellent numismatic magazines like @Coinnews and @coinworld.

A final thought

We too have felt lost many times with a certain coin. We would have liked to have found information more simply and directly.

Therefore, because sometimes this world of coin collecting is a bit arid, this website aims to provide basic information essential to move through the world of old coins with the minimum knowledge required.
