No limit what we can invest in. Another opportunity coming soon.

I bought my first set of commemorative coins just a few months back. I own one set. 100 years of significance Commemorative coins may be worth a lot in the future. Here’s10 coins which are already worth by far more than the price that the first owner paid for. Rarest and most valuable coins – UK, The Sun.co.uk One of it is the London Olympics Aquatics 50p (RM2.70) which is now worth £600 (RM3,261). Let’s not even try to calculate the return on investment in percentage. Okay, the coin set I bought may not go to this level but let’s just say that should I intend to sell now, I can already sell at a small premium. Here’s one of such advert to sell in mudah.my.  Wait, if the goal is to get fast returns, I am not sure if this is the investment for you. However, if you are like me, buying because we appreciate the historical significance of such an issuance, then please proceed. There’s one which I personally consider as significant and will definitely be registering for the balloting in a few weeks time. Do refer to the Bank Negara Malaysia’s press release as below.  This is the article in BNM if you prefer to read over there.

— end of press release —

The most exciting part for all these commemorative coins would definitely be the auction of the below set. I will share the details once I have them. Whether or not you will bid for one, drop by because it will be the time that we suddenly realise that the market for these limited issuances are not a small one. The gold commemorative coins will be sold via public auction on 10 March 2018. 

  1. Gold Commemorative Coin (proof)
    This proof coin is made of gold with 999.9 purity and weighs 7.96 grams with a face value of RM300. The coins will be sold via public auction at a reserve price of RM4,000 a piece.  The mintage quantity is 300 pieces.

Many people asked me why are people so ‘crazy’ with these coins? Well, this question may also be asked for those people who are ‘crazy’ for some McDonald’s toy set, for Pokemon playing cards and even some used Peranakan (Straits Chinese) antiques.. right? By the way, when we buy some OVERVALUED stocks, it is ALSO not that wise because we are hoping that the business would somehow earn much higher profits and thus we feel we are buying into the future. Well, investments are ALWAYS for the future… See you and cheers.
