There are many different reasons why people collect coins. But with our customers we find that there are two main groups:

Some collect coins for their beauty. Ancient Greek coins are true works of art, just as many medieval bracteats of the 12th century, or coins and historical medals of the Renaissance, the Baroque, and Classicism.

Others collect coins for their historical importance. Coins are authentic documents of the past, and sometimes coins are our main source of information. Metallic coins are more durable than most other archaeological objects, they can be dated precisely, and through their fabric, their designs and their inscriptions they can to tell us something about the past and many of its cultural, economical, geographical and social aspects.
