The best way to start investing in rare coins

Investment Opportunities

Investment into rare coins can start as a hobby and become a very smart way of creating an investment. When investing in rare coins, it can provide a significant medium to long-term benefit. The value of a coin is related to the difficulty to obtain a coin and the demand is generated for that specific coin. Generally, the rarer the coin, the greater the value. The world’s rarest coin is the South African “Single 9” that was minted in 1899.

Nelson Mandela coins are a welcome addition to any coin enthusiast’s collection. All Nelson Mandela coins were produced by the South African Mint.
For a Nelson Mandela Coin to have value, the following requirements are needed:
1. Coin must be uncirculated, Mint State or Proof (Untouched)
2. Graded by International grading companies (Only NGC or PCGS)
3. Certificate of Purchase with the name of the purchaser.

These are the different options when purchasing PROOF Nelson Mandela Coins. Be aware that Proof coins are different from Mint State Coins.

Warm Autumn Investments’ aim is to help you grow your rare coin. Remember, as per the date of this blog, no Capital Gains Tax or other taxes are payable on resale of Mandela coins, as well as No Estate duties are payable.

Investors’ Tip

 We advise all investor in this regard to use common sense.

How long should I invest for?

Investment Opportunities

As with most good investments, rare coin investors should be investing for the medium to long term. This means that rare coin investments should be held between 3 – 5 years. Almost any good investment throughout the world today takes some time to build growth momentum. One should take the same investment attitude with the opportunity Warm Autumn Investments presents through its investment opportunity in the Commemorative 90th Birthday Nelson Mandela R5. A rare coin will always increase in value over the long term. It stands to reason that a rare coin will become rarer with the passage of time; all the more so if it is made even more unique through being a commemorative coin, in memory of a global legend.

There are times when the market moves at a fast pace and profit opportunities present themselves in less than a year, but this is not the norm.

The greatest profits made in investments around the world are generally done over the long term. To put it simply, if you find a really great investment, stick with it as long as the overall trend is upward. It will pay you to hold onto the investment. Every single investment in the world follows a path that includes peaks and valleys. In other words, there will be times when an investment’s value increases and there are times when it may lose value.

What does this all mean for serious investors?

  • By taking the investment opportunity that rare coins have to offer, you will be growing your tangible assets.
  • The value of many rare South African coins exceeds their melt value (as the precious metal content is very small) and can be influenced by factors such as the age, scarcity, quality, preservation, supply and demand, historical significance and official grading of the coins.
  • As a growing option for alternative investments, rare South African coins benefit from low correlation with other investments, sometimes offering more liquidity than other investments e.g. real estate.
  • Most rare coins offer an attractive long-term (50+ years) return on investment, but can also present satisfying short-term returns.

Who was the legend?


On 10 May 1994, he was inaugurated as South Africa’s first democratically elected President. On his 80th birthday in 1998 he married Graça Machel, his third wife.

True to his promise, Mandela stepped down in 1999 after one term as President. He continued to work with the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund he set up in 1995 and established the Nelson Mandela Foundation and The Mandela Rhodes Foundation.

In April 2007 his grandson, Mandla Mandela, was installed as head of the Mvezo Traditional Council at a ceremony at the Mvezo Great Place.

Nelson Mandela never wavered in his devotion to democracy, equality and learning. Despite terrible provocation, he never answered racism with racism. His life is an inspiration to all who are oppressed and deprived, and to all who are opposed to oppression and deprivation.

He died at his home in Johannesburg on 5 December 2013.


Nelson Mandela’s father died in 1930 when Mandela was 12 and his mother died in 1968 when he was in prison. While the autobiography Long Walk to Freedom says his father died when he was nine, historical evidence shows it must have been later, most likely 1930. In fact, the original Long Walk to Freedom manuscript (written on Robben Island) states the year as 1930, when he was 12.

Happy Birthday Madiba!
