I'm curious as to how the member base responds to the question above. As for me, I'm half investor and half collector.  Some coins/medals I own and intend to keep for a long, long time just because it feels great to own them. Other coins I buy with the intent to turn a profit. I have never set up at a coin show as a seller, although I've considered it. I worry that if I sold stuff, I may not be able to find similar items again at a lower price.

What about you guys?

Collector only. I have 2 coins in my collection that I have a duplicate of but have not sold. Any appreciation in value of my collection or coin/s in my collection is just a welcome bonus for me.

I am an investor for very long term 10/20 years, since 5 years I only collect gold pandas, I managed to make a complete game of 1/2 oz gold panda,
Since 2 years I try to buy rarities in 1/20 and 1/10 oz, but it is very difficult to find when you live in france , or to be able to buy abroad,Many seller do not want to deliver.
