Investing in lucrative South African rare coins

If you want to start collecting coins, you should start looking for desirable examples in South Africa. Many SA coins are highly desirable to collectors.

Many examples of SA coins have rewarded their owners handsomely with fantastic returns.

Take the 1902 Velpond. With only 986 pieces minted, this coin was worth £1 when it first came out. Just a year later, the same coin was worth £11. That’s a 1,000% increase in price.

The 1902 Velpond is still one of the most desirable SA coins in the world.

If you’re looking for rarity, you can’t look by the Single 9. As the name suggests, only one of these coins was minted. It’s now worth around R36 million.

What SA coins to look at buying?

The Single 9 and the 1902 Velpond are fine examples of SA coins. If you’re interested in buying SA coins, what should you look for?

To start off, have a look for coins dated between 1874 and 1902. Coins minted over this period of time have performed extremely well.
