Collectible coins

Collectible coins. Rare and authentic

Collectible coins

Collectible coins Commemorative coins, especially admired by collectors,

are only minted with one specific year date and tend to be issued for specific events.

With a themed collection, there is always the opportunity to document history

in precious metal and add more commemorative coins over time.

Of course you will want to consider the value of any coin you wish to add as your collection grows

and it’s important to note that rarity is more of a factor than the actual value of the metal itself.

The extent to which a coin minted for commemorative purposes

has potential to increase in value over time is partly dependent on the quantity produced.

Coins that are minted for commemorative purposes

They are decided by the government and issued according to a legal framework,

once the authorised quantity is struck, it is forbidden to produce more.

When the entire minted quantity is sold out demand

then increases from collectors and dealers

which in turn increase the value of a specific coin over time.

As a general rule, the smaller the number of coins that are available,

and the higher the demand, the more attractive the coin will be for a prospective buyer.

Collectible coins contain a year date of when they are minted and usually a number published.

Rare and authentic

Determining the authenticity of a coin is vital with a significant number of silver and gold counterfeit coins in circulation.

Request documentation at the time of purchase relating to the coin’s origin, its condition, specifications and mintage.

Only purchase from reputable sources and beware of rogue traders and unscrupulous operators.

Acquire knowledge through research via reference books and price guides.

The £1 coins to look out for – and what they can shift for

If you’ve one of these Collectible coins knocking around, you could be quids in .

though it goes without saying that prices can change,

there are no guarantees, and ‘mint-condition’ coins are likely to fetch more than those that have been in the wars.

  • The Scotland: Thistle and Bluebell £1. 

    Issued in 2014, this coin from north of the border is considered “scarce”, with five million minted. It regularly fetches between £3.50 and £5

 


  • England: London £1.

    This coin was issued in 2010 as part of the Royal Mint’s series of £1 coins to commemorate the four constituent countries of the UK.

  •  Some Collectible coins worth more than others, but this London design is considered “very scarce”, with just over 2.5 million minted.
  • Regularly listed , this coin currently fetches between £6.50 and £10 – a tidy profit on its face value.

 


  • Wales: Cardiff City £1.

    This coin is also “very scarce”, with just over 1.5 million minted.

  • The coin was issued during 2011 and shows the Coat of Arms of Cardiff representing Wales. We found two of these listed as sold on eBay this month for £14.99 each.

 


  • Scotland: Edinburgh City £1.

    Issued in 2011, this is considered THE most scarce £1 coin available.

  • Fewer than one million were minted – so if you’ve got one, it’s probably a waste to spend it.
  • These regularly fetch up to £20 a time, though some rarer uncirculated versions – often displayed in a commemorative box – have sold for up to £60.
  • The list above isn’t exhaustive.
  • The coin collector website Change Checker says four more designs which are more widely in circulation
  • Than those listed above are still considered “less common”.
  • These are (from left to right, below) the ‘Northern Ireland: Flax and Shamrock’, the ‘Daffodil and Leek’, the ‘Rose and Oak Branch’ and the ‘Belfast City’ £1 coins.
  • These coins fetch between £3 and £5 each.

How to cash in on your Collectible coins

  • Use as many keywords as possible. Fill the item’s auction title with search terms such as edition, year and condition.
  • Also include close-up photos of your £1 coin in the listing.
  • For higher value coins, post with an insured, signed-for service with online tracking, such as Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed.
  • This covers cash sent in the post for loss or damage up to £500, though this option will cost upwards of £6.45 so shouldn’t be considered if your coins are worth less.
  • If you think you have an especially valuable coin, consider selling via a specialist dealer. Find them through the British Numismatic Trade Association. As a rule of thumb, always try at least three and play them off against each other.
  • Remember, as with other collectables, rare-coin prices fluctuate significantly. So if you cash in now, you may lose out, or you could gain later –no one knows for sure.

Fiat 500 Jolly

Fiat 500 Jolly. Classic Car Rare 1963

Classic Car

1963 Fiat 500 Jolly.
Stunning Italian craftsmanship
Beautifully presented
Supplied with original Fiat 500 owners manual
Exquisite design,

1963 Fiat 500 Jolly.

When Fiat’s chairman Gianni Agnelli needed a “land dinghy” to carry aboard his 82-foot yacht, the Agneta, he asked his design team at Fiat to create a small, light vehicle that could easily be lowered off the boat for local transportation. They came up with the ‘Jolly.’

The first Jollys’ were built on the two-cylinder Fiat 500 platform and then sent to Ghia,

the famous Italian Coachbuilder to be modified.

This involved removing the roof and doors and adding wicker seats

and a fringed canvas top and strengthening the chassis frame.

A version based on the larger 600 soon followed.

It is believed that no more than 400 Jollys were built in total, between 1958 and 1969.

Fiat 500 Jolly. Classic Car Rare 1963

They were briefly sold in the United States and are very rare in Europe.

Our beautiful little Fiat Jolly recreation is a Fiat 500 that has been fully restored to Jolly specifications having used an original Ghia 500 Jolly as a reference. The entire body of the Fiat 500 saloon was completely stripped to bare metal, restored, re-worked and repainted by craftsmen in Italy. Finished to an extremely high standard and painted beautifully in Peppermint Green with bright Chrome details and wicker seating. Complemented by Chrome wheel trims with White-wall tyres, this iconic little classic always attracts admiring envious onlookers. The drivability of the car is equally as pleasurable, gear changes are smooth, allowing for easy City driving.

Hand crafted wicker seats, rattan floor mats, a quality fringed surrey top, and the gorgeous windshields are fitted to finish the Jolly look, all are in concours condition. This is the perfect vehicle for the Summer months.

Here is the chance to own one of the finest small cars ever built.

This stunning Fiat 500 Jolly is simply stunning.

Cars.

Everyone has their own definition, their own set of criteria, their own ideas about what makes a car ‘classic’.

Some people have a very fluid rationale, using the word ‘classic’ to refer to a wider range of interesting cars that aren’t being built anymore.

Others are more comfortable with a specific meaning of the word, like the reader who wrote in yesterday saying that to qualify as classic the car must be “a post-WWII, pre-1980 model of technical or nostalgic merit”.

Neither approach is wrong.

But how old or new can a classic car be?

Who decides whether a car is noteworthy, or when it approaches ‘a certain age’?

Do we leave this down to consensus?

I’ve briefly explored some of the options.

Again, it depends who you ask. ‘Classic’ is a specific taxation class in several US states, while North American historic car clubs have their own set criteria and age restrictions.

In the UK, though, there are fewer hard-and-fast rules.

The closest thing we have to a cut-off date is currently the 1st of January 1977 – cars built before this particular day don’t incur vehicle excise duty. This is a rolling date (it’ll soon be 1978) but it offers Brits something approaching a government definition of ‘classic’.

What can be a ‘classic’ car?

Whether any of these qualify as classics is still the source of disagreement.

A Subaru fan might consider the P1 to be a seminal road car,

while a dyed-in-the-wool Porsche aficionado

would probably have to look closely at which particular 911 was being offered. before deciding whether it was a classic or not.

But it’s fair to say that these cars are currently closer to being ‘classics’

than Corsas of the same vintage.

Vintage Cars?

Take having “technical or nostalgic merit”

as a starting point for classic car candidacy.

It’s actually more difficult to think of a car that doesn’t fall into this category than to find cars that do

Nearly every car has a technological USP, and those that don’t still have fan clubs.

And by definition, more cars are becoming old enough to be noteworthy. Everyday vehicles from yesteryear.

become scarce, or are belatedly recognised for the technological achievements They represent.

Gradually, and fitfully, the ranks of the ‘classic’ fleet swell.

Remember that eventually, they’ll almost certainly become right.

If you’re deciding whether or not to invest in a classic car,

Fiat 500 Jolly then bear in mind that parts might not come cheap.

Let’s be honest, classic is just another word for old .

and old in the context of cars can mean it’s hard to fix and find parts for.

Before you buy, it’s worth checking the replacement parts rules of your insurance provider

to make sure you’ll be entitled to authentic replacement parts.

So, while you may have a hankering for something cool and vintage,

the demands on your wallet might not be so welcome.
