The History Of Coins Extends From Ancient Times To The Present Time and Is Still Widely Used For Monetary and Other Purposes In All Parts Of The World.
Coins begin to appear in the archaeological record about 650 BC. Scholars disagree on exactly where the first coins were minted, but the ancient civilizations in Anatolia (modern-day Turkey), Greece, India, and China are all likely candidates. Prior to the appearance of coins, precious metals were commonly used as the basis for trade but needed to be carefully weighed at each transaction and the purity of the metal verified. The development of minted coinage in which the weight and metal composition were certified by a government represented a significant advance in the development of commerce.
From the first days of coin production, coins were hoarded as an accumulation of wealth. Beyond that obvious notion, there are many indications that the collecting of coins beyond simple hoarding dates back to the Roman era if not earlier. Caesar Augustus, the first emperor of Rome is frequently cited as one of the first coin collectors.
Coin collecting continued to develop over time. In the 19th century, collectors broadened their horizons to include not only ancient coins but exotic coins and foreign currencies as well. Books on collecting were published, making the research accumulated in prior centuries available to the general public. Collecting societies emerged in Europe and North America. These societies cultivated not only the trade of coins but the exchange of information, bringing collectors together and publishing journals.
There is a huge market for coin collectors in today’s market, the rarer the coin, in most cases increases the value of the coin, but it also depends on quality standards. As with all aspects of modern life, the advent of the Internet has transformed coin collecting. Today’s collectors have access to resources that would have been unimaginable just a few decades ago. Dealer inventories from across the globe are now available to everyone, everywhere. More importantly, the online community has provided a robust platform for collector-to-collector sales and trades, and the exchange of information.
