What is my coin worth on the market?
As the quality of coins varies widely, it is never possible to state how much a specific mintage is worth without examining it. Only a highly trained eye can recognise the crucial differences and evaluate the “condition” of the coin, i.e. how well it has been maintained. Another factor to consider is the fluctuating demand on the market. If there is a particular trend among collectors, even coins in somewhat inferior condition can increase in value. If there are a large number of coins on the market, the quality must be very high to achieve even a satisfactory price.
The value of an expert eye
When examining a coin, trained numismatists recognise immediately what kind of coin it is, how good the condition is and whether it is genuine or an imitation. However, this kind of assured expertise only comes from having examined thousands and thousands of coins. Only then is it possible to gauge the current value of a coin.
Price influenced by the market
At Felzmann, coins are evaluated by our numismatics experts with years of experience. The current market situation is always factored into the price estimation. As soon as our experts have evaluated your coins, they will determine a price to be used as a starting bid for the auction.
