Finished collecting euro coins.

Postby Gunmoney » Sun 09 Aug 2020, 16:59

Hi All,

Since it's been a while since I have collected Euro coins and life has moved on and just don't have the time to put into collecting. Thinking of either selling or maybe put them away for a few years ???

Have the following 2 Euro CC coins all UNC, San Marino and Andorra are in folders, Vatican I have folders but with all other coins and in caps housed in 2 cases. All German coins would be sets all 5 mints.
Just wondering what would be a reasonable valuation on these?

Hello Gunmoney,

time changes the life. I hope it isn't a serious reason why you are thinking about it.
Thinking to take a break is the best way, because you can restart when ever you want.
It would be much easier to start your collection there you you had finished before than start completely again.

On the other way. There are no much collector friend from Ireland.Therefore would be great for us when we could count furthermore on you.

Best regards,
Sahak
Thank you very much to all my exchange partners. :respekt:

Please do not forget to give a good recommendation after every successful exchange. Thank you very much!

I think we all have moments when we are less active in collecting, sometimes it are just other things that are more important.
Some time ago (2016) I had the same idea, but I restarted.
When you don't need the money, I would advice to keep your collection.
Maybe in some time you want to restart.
I don't think the value of your collection will change very much in a short time, so no reason to decide quickly.
Problem with a lot of thes coins is that when you need them, you have to pay a lot more than 2 euro each, but when you want to sell them it is difficult to get more than 2 euro each.
Of course the coins from Monaco, Vatican, San Marino, andorra and a few others are a different story, they have a higher value.

Hi Ian

The wheell is turning, the passion of yesterday is not the same today, that's life.
I personnaly sale my 2€ cc collection some years ago because I think there is too much coin and for a complete collection Monaco's is to much expensive for a simple piece of poor metal. It was a hard job but I was lucky to find a agreement with a member of this forum for a one shot deal.
The problem is to found someone ready to pay huge amount of money in one time for a complete collection like yours.
It's a long job to estimate this collection, mainly a coin price is about 2.5 -3€ but you must identify some coins most expensive ( ex Finland 2004 & 2019), Slovenia 2007, Luxemburg 2010 and some Malta coins too) and of course the micro states are different.
You can also sell year by year or country by country.
Good luck in this operation and hope you still collect other coins, (there is not only 2€ cc !) and hope we can see you in this forum you for a long time.

hi ian , let's be a part of the discussion and say hi to all
the priorities changes in our lives, collecting is a hobby, sometimes we have time, sometimes we don't
2 euro coins my story
at the beginning (old good euroswapper) when i start collecting at 2007 was easy (11 issues with 2 euro cc coins), 2013 issues was 31 and later was 45! and somewhere i lost my interest, too many issues, too much time to spend to collected them, and I decide to stop.

if you are remember in old forum we had a blisters price list section every month, i created most with mikoyan. now the interested for blister is very low. i have many blister and recently i decide to recheck them , i see the Italian blisters the coins have black dots and are dropping from the case, glue is not exist any more. i give so many effort to gather them, and now i see my effort somehow is lost.

let's back to you Ian :) sorry for the intervention

to sell all the collection at once is difficult, maybe you do it as a lot in ebay or sell them to a dealer, a reasonably price is a tricky cause you have a lot of coins. i think the best is to sell as jore said by year or by country. depending also how fast you want to sell, prices : around nominal value for the "normal coins" and for rare around market price.
