Collecting United States Commemorative Coins

 United States Commemorative CoinWith all the recent publicity regarding the launch of the 2014 Baseball Hall Of Fame Commemorative Coins, I have received a number of inquiries from coin collectors and non-collectors alike regarding the "collectability" of United States commemorative coins. Coin collectors, who were intrigued by the universal appeal of baseball, were interested in other United States commemorative coins. I also received a number of inquiries regarding the investment potential of modern U.S. Commemorative coins.

My standard answer to people who ask my opinion as to whether they should collect a particular coin series is, "Collect what you like and you will never be disappointed." When you complete the series or are no longer interested in it, you can then sell your collection and recover some, if not all or even more, of what you originally purchased it for. Most collectors of modern United States commemorative coins focus on the commemorative silver dollars. You will see that a majority of these modern U.S. commemorative silver dollars are reasonably priced.
