You Might Be Your Coins’ Worst Enemy

Coins

For coin collectors and investors, owning rare and valuable gold or silver coins comes with a pride that often results in showing off your collection. There’s nothing wrong with showing off your coins, just make sure you don’t harm them in the process.

Yes! Handling your coins can cause damage to the metal. Surprised? Below are other ways you might be hurting your collection:

  • Touching the faces of a coin.
  • Cleaning coins the wrong way.
  • Storing coins improperly.
  • Leaving coins in attics, basements, or garages.

If you’re guilty of any of the acts above, your coins may have sustained damages that could decrease the value of your investments. There are ways, though, that collectors and investors can avoid damaging their coins while also showing them off.
