Investing Vs. Collecting: Which Is Right for You?

When you are beginning a collection, you may simply do it for fun without concern of the value of your collection. However, as your stamp or coin collecting continues, you may begin to accrue items that are worth a considerable sum or are expected to grow in value. As you emphasize the investment aspect of your collection, you might begin to look at rare coins and stamps differently.

Investing in stamps or coins means that you plan to sell these collectables in the future. You do research for every item you purchase to ensure that its selling price will continue to rise. Each item you collect is an investment to sell for a higher price. When you choose to collect stamps or coins, then you are doing it for enjoyment. Your collection may turn into an investment, but you may take the time to research and learn the history of a collectable rather than its sales history.
