Why Are Older Silver Coins More Expensive
Current years are often available at lower premiums compared to backdated years as this is because they are still being minted. Once a coin stops being minted they can be more difficult to source.
This is not to say that you cannot get backdated coins at good bullion prices and if you sign up to our mailing list, we send out secret offers for dated coins when we have surplus stock.
Whats Your Preference?
Collectors often have a coin of preference in terms of design, denomination, country or even rarity. They will buy coins from each year for the design features rather than the intrinsic metal value and when prices are higher than just a multiple of silver content they are said to have "numismatic value". Some coins may increase substantially in value - this can depend on the mintage and desirability of the design and demand for a given coin.
