Coin Shops

Coins - World | Dollar Guy

When I was in Europe last November is stumbled onto this little place, it was a pity it was closed and I was leaving that afternoon and would not be back as we were headed for the Airport for a flight home. You can blame this one on the ANA site I took the picture correctly!! I tried to upload it three times! the Coin shops I found in Cologne and Strasburg were sad disappointments they had tremendous numbers on coin sets all polished up nice and shiny. This shop i believe was in VIenna ( Ian can confirm that?)

I have only been exposed to European coins on ebay. I must visit a shop some day in Germany.

My experience in Germany is not much to brag about - The three shops I encountered the majority of the coins were US and were polished to the point of sterility. Kennedy halves are a popular item and command high premium but are so well polished they are beyond any American's need to have.

I was chatting with Ian about it on Skype and he is of the same opinion, however the main emphasis on the European collectors is Ancients, everyone else is just accumulators. He even says a lot of people even do not understand his interest in Maria Theresa Thalers. I would probably be a real outcasr with my paper money collection.

Coin collecting in Europe is different than in the USA.
