If you are in the coin collection business you have to know the value of the coins you are collecting. It is also important to compare buyers bids before you let your coin out. You can make more money by selling old South African coins at the coin shops.
Here are some valuable information to know about coins from 1965 to 2014
Only the items listed for the period 1965 and later have value due to their low mintage. Items not listed have no value due to their large mintages.
For more detailed values we recommend you purchase catalogues and contact dealers directly. Choice and better quality items and scarce dates could be worth substantially more subject to viewing and grading.
Coins from 1965 Pays Up to R30 000
Should you require an offer to purchase, kindly arrange for an appointment or alternately fax, email or post an inventory list to us.

Better prices are paid for CHOICE QUALITY.
Damaged coins are worth less
The coins that have value are those that are graded by the grading companies, so you must know and be able to differentiate between the graded and non-graded Mandela coins.
The largest and most respected organisation of professional coin dealers is called PNG (Professional Numismatists Guild) and ICTA (Industry Council for Tangible Assets). They look over the coin market and make sure dealers around the world know about the differences in between grading companies.PNG releases surveys of the biggest grading companies.
As you can see on the table produced by PNG, NGG and PCGS emerge as the top graders in the world.
For this reason The Coin Company only deals with NGC and PCGS coins. All our Nelson Mandela Coins, Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday R5, 2000 Nelson Mandela Millennium R5 and 1994 Presidential Inauguration R5 are NGG or PCGS graded.
BE AWARE!! Do not buy any coins that are not graded by PCGS or NGC. Nelson Mandela coins without grading have no other value than the one they represent.
ANACS grading came into being as an arm of the American Numismatic Association, the world’s largest coin club. In 1990 after ANA sold its grading service to Amos Press of Sidney, Ohio, it ranked “average” in the PNG (Professional Numismatists Guild) and ICTA (Industry Council for Tangible Assets) report for grading accuracy. For this reason we don’t deal with ANACS coins.

Coin Investment requires the advice of a broker to make the right choice and purchase. This is a long time investment. We do not recommend buying online any coin before having the possibility to inspect the coin in your hand.
Most of the coins you will find at The Coin Company are graded coins as well as rare South African coins. This means that coins have been inspected and inserted in a plastic capsule with a bar code and a hologram to certify the coin is authentic. This process is done in United States.
If you have a collection of coins that are currently in circulation, remember that unfortunately we don’t buy or sell circulated coins.
If your coins are out of circulation, old or rare, never try to clean them.
The value will decrease if you clean them.
