Welcome to Silver Coins

Collecting gold or silver coins is a serious hobby for many collectors or investors worldwide. To serve these collectors there are various “rare” silver and gold coins for sale at numismatic marketplaces like eBay and others. But there are also online coin trading markets where professional coin sellers and coin buyers meet. Unfortunately, there are also much silver-plated or metal made counterfeit coins worldwide for sale outside those marketplaces. These counterfeit coins are mostly made in various Asian countries. Counterfeit coins are sometimes of such good quality that it is very difficult to identify them as counterfeit. And if you’re a beginner coin collector and not an expert then you are most likely to fall for it.

Buying coins online can result in a big disappointment and a potential buyer cannot touch the coin. It means that he or she has to judge the coin by watching an image online. Even worse, trying to identify the coin from an image that has been provided by the seller. That makes it very risky to buy old coins online if you do not know the reputation of the seller who is offering the coin. Knowing what you want to buy is and having specific coin knowledge is essential. Having relevant data at hand, like the weight and size of that specific rare gold or silver coin is much needed. This data in combination with the seller’s reputation can give you an advantage when buying these specific coins online.
