It has never been so easy to buy and sell things as it is now, particularly with the internet. Whereas at one point you would have had to go to specialist shops maybe out of town to buy certain collectable items, you can now buy them at the touch of a button with the use of the internet.
If you put a search online to find a specific coin, there are many dealers which come up with the coin in question. Some of these sites on the web are auction sites others are individuals who have collected coins over the years and have built up a collection of coins and other rare pieces. It is usual for a firm specialising in selling coins to also have an interest in selling postage stamps, medals and bank notes. In addition to this you might also find that a specialist in all the latter is also interested in other collectible items, such as cigarette cards, autographs and sporting memorabilia.
If you have an old coin and are interested in getting it valued, then there are many books available which have the values of coins in them. Depending on the country the coin is from will depend on where you look for the value of a coin. Most countries have their own directories of coins. If by any chance you can’t find the coin you are looking for on the internet, then you could always try the museum, although you will not find the value of the coin at the museum you will get a good idea of when the coin was produced and the identification of a specific coin.
Other than that libraries hold information on all coins (Münzen). If you have a coin that you want valuing firstly don’t get your hopes up that the coin will be worth a fortune as vast quantities of any one coin are produced so there could be thousands of the same coin out there for sale. As people tend to keep hold of coins due to them having value you usually find that where there is one coin there is many, old people usually have draws full of old shrapnel. If you are a coin collector then this is good news as the price of a really old coin will only be a couple of pounds.
The internet certainly has made buying coins (Bewertung Münzen) for collectors much easier. It means shopping at leisure in the comfort of your own home on the web has never been so easy.
