About Us

Rare Coin Investments is one of South Africa’s premier rare coin dealers. We have been in existence for just over 6 years with experience of more than 14 years in the industry. This allows us to provide you, the client, with unsurpassed insight into the mechanics of the rare coin market. We assemble portfolios of rare, investment -grade coins for investors seeking diversity in their portfolios and a potentially high rate of capital appreciation.

Every client is assigned their own broker who will provide them with personalised service. This incorporates a complete analysis of your investment needs, subsequent recommendations, portfolio updates and any pertinent information relating to their coins.

Rare Coin Investments specializes in South Africa’s rarest coins including the ‘single 9’, Burgers patterns, the unrecorded 1928 Sovereign and the Blank half pond (the other specimen is part of the Absa museum coin collection). During the last 9 years our director has sold the single 9 twice. First for 4.65 million and then for a record R9,8 million. In fact, we’ve created some of SA’s greatest rare coin portfolios. Our experience and industry knowledge has enabled us to maintain a considerable inventory of South Africa’s finest coins.

“Rare South African coins also carry an intangible quality that contributes heavily to the coins value, the history of the coin. All of the rare South African coins carry a story; they are a fold in the page of our history books that teach us about where we are from and how we have evolved through time.”

To protect collectors and investors alike, Rare Coin Investments only specializes in coins authenticated and certified by the world’s leading independent grading firms – Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation(NGC).

Our policy is to provide each client with complete confidentiality, free evaluations, expert advice and excellent service. So if you are a serious investor or a hobbyist interested in these gems of South African history, South Cape Coins is your dealer of choice.
