i think it can be a hobby and yet something that can appreciate in value in the future. Which type of coins are you considering? I am currently looking around, trying to find out what to look out for. haha

For coin collectors, nothing in the Singapore mint is worth keeping.

For bullion investors, nothing in the Singapore mint is cheap enough.

CapsuleMoney: #5 Intro to Precious Metals

CapsuleMoney: #12 Where to buy Precious Metals in Singapore?

You can read 2 of my old Blog post.
Be very careful when you buy Silver and Gold, you need to know the game right in order to play it well.

Similarly to Stocks, you need to at least know the basic logic and roughly know what is a "reasonable" price to buy it.

I am not a pro, but i had been collecting it for about 1year+, if you have any questions you can pm me, i will try my best to answer you.

All gold coins are valuable.

U can check on ebay... If u want to sell fast, sell at spot price (ie, check the weight and gold content and multiply with the gold price now).

If u are selling at spot price, pls pm me. = D
