We are proud to offer this unique and outstanding investment tool exclusively to our clients. Why is CoinStats so helpful to rare coin investors?Since 1960, our President and Founder, Barry Stuppler, has been helping develop numismatic investment strategies for thousands of highly successful rare coin investors and collectors. About 15 years ago, based on speaking with a number of rare coin investors who were also active in the stock market, Barry realized that there were many similarities between identifying undervalued stocks and undervalued rare coins. He realized that the similarities between stocks and rare coins could be helpful in forming numismatic investment strategies if he could just harvest and properly formulate the needed information. That's when CoinStats was born. Barry started out with the "market capitalization" (market cap) of each coin in the five most popular series of rare U.
For stocks: market cap = number of shares outstanding X price per share. For Rare Coins: market cap = population X price. Population is determined by the number of coins graded by NGC, plus the number of coins graded by PCGS; Price is based on the PCGS current list price. The first step in identifying undervalued coins is comparing the market cap of coins based on the formula above.
CoinStats then goes on to compare the decrease in population of the next higher grade, to the increase in price of that grade. The largest percentage of decrease in population for the next higher grade, combined with the highest percentage increase in price, identifies the. As collectors and investors are priced out of the market for the next higher grade, their attention turns to these. CoinStats has consistently helped investors outperform even the overall market in investment-quality coins for the past 15 years.
