Investment equals future value increases. What makes a coin a good investment? One word--rarity. Rare coins continue their potential for value appreciation. They are a tangible asset of real value - not a paper claiming value.
What is common today will continue to be common and what is scarce will become more scarce as pieces are lost, damaged or circulated through the years. Thirty years ago, an average uncirculated Lincoln Wheat Cent was about $.05 and an uncirculated 1909 S VDB Lincoln cent was about $95.00. Today average uncirculated Lincoln Memorial cents can be found at the shows for about $.25 or less but the price of the 1909 S VDB has gone to over $3,000.00. Which looks like the best investment to you? If you want some of your collection to be a good investment you need the best possible example of the rarest coins you can afford; it is that simple. That is one of the reasons "type collections" having one rare coin of each series have always been so popular; they are fun to assemble and they pay off over the years.
If you are looking for return as well as pleasure, this is the page to bookmark. This doesn't mean that you can't find coins that will give you good returns elsewhere (some series and countries just don't have the same level of rarity as others and the "best possible" may be a $200 coin). As with any collection, buy what you like and will enjoy owning and the pleasure and profit will go hand in hand.
