Numismatics

Endeavor Metals Group finds platinum numismatics as important as it’s gold and silver counterparts. Numismatic coins are coins that are “graded” for its rarity and condition as they typically have a higher value in comparison to the coin’s metal content. Various physical attributes and the year that the coin was minted are what are assessed in the Sheldon Coin Grading Scale. This scale ranges from 1-70 where a 70 is the best or the ”perfect” grade. For a numismatic to achieve a “perfect” MS70 (Mint State 70) grade, numismatists look at the physical aspects of the coin. That would mean for the coin to have no marks, even when using an eye loupe or magnifier, the color to be bright, and the luster and strike are to be extraordinary. Grades 68-69 are still near perfect levels, however the main difference would be small light marks that will be visible upon closer inspection and not visible to the naked eye. The year of the coin is also a factor in determining the numismatic value as every year there are a different number of minted coins. Only so many coins will be graded, and amongst those, a small percentage will be graded MS70, thus numismatics having a higher appeal and scarcity than platinum bullion coins.

Numismatics also may have the PF/PR, or Proof, designation as well. While a proof coin does have a numerical value for the PF description in a similar manner to a mint state coin, the difference between a proof coin (PF) and a graded coin (MS) is that a proof coin is determined by the manufacturing of the coin in lieu of the condition or the grade of the coin. Proof coins go through specific manufacturing measures to achieve the proof status. They are treated to a special coin die on a specific planchet and are typically struck twice, at slower speeds and a higher pressure. Mint state coins have a soft, matte-like finish with some shine, however proof coins are especially shiny, with a mirror field. They also typically have a greater depth of sharpness, definition and detail than mint state coins. A rare coin that has all of the above descriptors and even more unique are Ultra High Relief (UHR/HR) coins. Regardless of any abbreviation that comes with your coin(s), numismatics are a prestigious precious metal for your portfolio.
