There are a number of reasons why astute investors are getting interested in numismatic (rare coins and banknotes) investment opportunities.
History of Value Increases - Over the past 35 years, prominent areas in the numismatic market have increased very substantially in value. Take a look at our investment guide (on our featured links) for more information.
Non-Taxable - Numismatic collectibles are non-taxable whilst in your possession. There are tax benefits which are worth discussing with your independent financial advisor.
No Effect on Pensions Allowance - Coins and Banknotes can be included in a Pensioner's Capital Asset allowance - this means that you can build up your superannuation portfolio with numismatic investment pieces and will be taxed at the lower superannuation rate.
No Fees / Purchase Limits - There are no on-going management, maintenance or supervision fees with numismatic items. There are also no purchase limits.
Discreet and Confidential - As there is no registration to be lodged with authorities, you have complete confidentiality with your investment which can be desirable in a world which is getting more litigation-focused and less private by the day.
Unlimited Portability - You will have the ability to move your investment with you - it is possible to carry a million dollars worth of rare coins, for example, in a small bag.
High Demand for Australian Rarities - Strong demand within Australia and overseas makes it easier to liquidate well chosen Numismatic rarities.
Ability to Sell a Portion Only - You can liquidate a portion of your Portfolio as necessary without penalty.
Family Heirlooms - Your rare coins and banknote collections can be passed down from generation to generation as treasured family heirlooms.
