My son found this gold plated one dollar at my brother-in-law's driveway when we visited the last time and she asked me to keep it for him. He was delighted and very curious why it looks different. We actually have two or more of this kind of dollar coin as my husband collects old and new coins.
Today, he asked me where his coin is so I have to take it out from my husband's collection. I ended up showing all of it to him because he saw me digging with it.
Hubby has been collection old coins including, old dollar coin, pennies, dimes, nickles, and he even have half dollar coins. I think, some of it were given to him by my father-in-law.
We researched the value of some of the coins online to see if they are worth any. Some have high prices depending on the year it was minted Hubby said that he is going to pass his collection to our son so it would be kind of a family heirloom of sort. Collecting some stuff is definitely a trait that my children got from my husband.
I was looking at the prices of the American Silver Eagles at Great Southern Coins and they are affordable actually. I am so practical when it comes to giving gifts especially to my husband who is very choosy but sometimes, things like these collectible coins are worth giving because it could be passed on from one generation to the next, just like what my FIL did to my husband.
But anyhow, if you want to invest in gold coins or want to buy collectible silver dollar coins, you can check out the site that I have mentioned above. They have different selection that you can choose from at a price that is just and fair. They also offer discounts to some selected coins and other collectibles. When you collect tings like these coins, you have to make sure that you are buying it from a trusted merchant to ensure that you are getting your money's worth.
