COINS, VALUES OF HISTORY
SOUNDNESS VS FLEETINGNESS
The current society is one of immediate gratification, of fleeting and voracious consumption. A collection of coins represents the opposite of this ephemeral culture. Ancient coins are immune to uncertainty, instability and vulnerability. They have stood the test of time, twenty-five centuries, and space, from East to West, preserving their intrinsic value, or rather, increasing their historical appeal. For those looking for stability, a coin is the perfect safe-haven asset.
WHY COLLECT COINS
1. History in your hands
Holding an ancient coin is to come into direct contact with our past; a numismatic collection is an exciting private museum.
2. Value that remains
Unlike electronic coins and cryptocurrencies, ancient coins combine the intrinsic preciousness of metal, historical value and artistic quality.
3. For everyone, not just for a few
Owning an ancient coin is a privilege accessible to everyone, even starting from modest figures.
4. From generation to generation
It is reassuring to own a rare piece, a tangible asset to be passed on to beloved ones.
5. Collecting does one good
Psychologists assure that collecting improves concentration, observation skills and memory.
THE PLEASURE OF CHOICE
“Money is a bridge between the present and the future”, says economist John Maynard Keynes. Throughout three millennia, coins have changed, though they remain in essence always the same. What does not change is the ancient and always exciting pleasure of holding a piece that has passed from hand to hand, observing its design, touching its relief and its outlines, discovering its history and appreciating its value. It is a pleasure that two thousand years ago the collector Julius Caesar already felt and one that still continues today. From ancient Greece to imperial Rome, from the Italian Renaissance to the great European monarchies, from the Kingdom of Italy to the Republic, discover which coins could be yours.
