Three of the most popular sets sold by The United States Mint are now available for sale. And to make things even better, the Mint has reduced the price of the silver proof set by $17.00 from last year's price of $67.95 and kept the other sets at last year's prices.
No matter what level of coin collector you are, you must equip yourself with the right tools and supplies in order to take care of and enjoy your coin collection. Personally, I'm a gizmo and gadget type of guy. I like to try out the newest toys, play around with the latest coin holders, and experiment with the most modern equipment. When I first began collecting coins as a kid (back in the 1970s) I was more of an accumulator than a collector. But over the years wisdom set in and I am more knowledgeable about what is required to properly house and protect my coin collection.
With stories of people finding gold coins buried on their property and other coins setting a world record at auction, I thought I would have a little fun and publish the Top 10 Most Valuable Coins in the World. There are some coins that are unique and exist only in museums. Therefore a value cannot be placed on them and they are not included in my Top 10 list. Some coins have sold more than once at world record prices. Some of them made money for their owners and other ones lost money. See for yourself which coins hold a world record price.
