Wall Street Journal Article on the Rare Coin Market
I'm not sure what specific event precipitated this news being covered, but there's an article on the (US) rare coin market in a recent edition of the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ is for subscribers only, however it has been reprinted in full here. It's interesting to read the factors attributed to causing the market to rise - a desire for diversification by many investors; rising precious metals price; the advent of the internet in making it easier to find information and trade, and increased market transparency. We can see how these factors have helped in the Australian market, and can see what needs to be done in order to expand the market even further.
