IOLA, Wis. (May 7, 2012) — You want to assemble a great coin collection, but your budget is limited. You’re never going to be able to spend $10,000 or more for a gold coin from the 1800s. But that’s OK. Today’s modern U.S. coins offer collectors an opportunity to amass a collection of beautiful coins at an affordable price.
Coins that were once considered a novelty of sorts, or just bullion for metals investors, have earned their place in numismatics. Today they represent a significant portion of all coins sold and are taken seriously by the market at large.
Authored by Eric Jordan and John Maben, Top 50 Most Popular Modern Coins shows readers the “best of the best” in terms of popularity, scarcity and affordability. Using the 50 coins listed in this reference as a beginning, collectors can find a direction of choice in modern coins collecting by date, mintmark or by composition. They may also choose the challenge of just collecting the 50 issues the authors have selected as tops.
