Frequently Asked Questions

Why are custom commemorative coins highly valuable?

With so many people collecting rare coin pieces, commemorative coins are a hot item for collectors. Not only are they minted only once, but only available for a limited time. Hence, their value increases over time, making them highly valuable.

Are commemorative coins worth money?

Commemorative coins can be said to be worth money due to legal tender, hence they are very desirable due to limited quantities. However, custom commemorative coins given or sold by businesses are worth much lesser compared to official coins. Buyers/Collectors can check the value of their coins if the company is well sort after or “antique” in the future.
