THE RARE R5 90TH BIRTHDAY 2008 PROOF AND MINT STATE COINS ARE THE FASTEST APPRECIATING RARE COINS IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD! THEY WILL CONTINUE TO BE SO FOR DECADES TO COME.
Nelson Mandela has now left South Africa in his physical form but the truth is that he will be with all of us South Africans and also the rest of the world for all time. Nelson Mandela has as all great men do manifested himself into the very nation that he helped to create and build. He is South Africa’s George Washington, our founding father for all of time. He will always be on our money, featured in our stamps and memorialised in statues and other vestiges. For all the rest of time Nelson Mandela will be seen as the father of South Africa and the soul and conscience of the world.
The market for Mandela coins consists of 300 000 certified and graded units. Just last year alone the amount of Mandela R5 coins that were submitted to be graded was 25 000 units in PCGS, NGC and ANACS coins. These coins are valued at over R500 million rand and will be worth over one billion rand by the end of 2020. As more and more of these coins are graded the rarest version of these coins are just going to be become more and more sought after and valuable. The Mandela coins now constitute more than 96.4% of the total South African rare coin market. The Mandela coins are also collected by all 50 million South Africans. This makes the Mandela R5 coins the most popular and collected coins by any populous in the whole world. The market for these coins is also global and you can find them being sold from Tel Aviv to Taipei. Nelson Mandela as with all great men will become greater in death than in life and so will the Mandela rare coin market continue to expand for the rest of time. Eventually being worth billions of dollars.
We are projecting that South Africans will submit a further 25 000 units of Mandela R5 coins to be graded this year. What this has led to is the formation of the most powerful rare coin market that South Africa has ever seen. The number of the coins that are certified indicates the number of investors and collectors participating in the market and also the overall weight of the most common coins on the rarest coins. If you are fortunate to have a proof 69 90th birthday Mandela coin it has a population or number graded of 2 215. That means that you have the displacement of 300 000 other Mandela R5 coins that are placing pressure on the rarest coins that have small populations of 2 215.
Many South Africans expected that all of the Mandela coins would double in value when he died. This was an inaccurate expectation. Firstly this is not a reasonable expectation. There has never been the passage of any famous person that has led to this occur in past history. What happens with the memorabilia of famous people is that it rises consistently at a very substantial pace over the next ten years after the death of the person. South Africa has an economy at the moment that is going through a challenging time. This has negatively affected the values of all things in South Africa from Mandela rare coins to real estate. South Africa’s economic malaise will pass. As it has done in years past.
Those who benefit the most are those that look at the economic slowdown in South Africa as an opportunity and not a problem. If you are a prudent investor this is the time to look for undervalued assets to place into your portfolio that will benefit most from the recovery when it occurs. One of the best investments to place into your portfolio that can be acquired at a discount to the market at this time are the Mandela rare coins.
All buyers of Mandela rare coins should note that all coins are assembled in sets when they are purchased by investors and collectors. The reason that this is that for from the beginning of time all collections of paintings, coins or other have always been of interrelated sets. The completion of a set of rare items actually increases the overall value of the collection. The reason for this is that it is very difficult to compile a complete collection of anything. A complete set of the 90th Birthday 2008 Mandela rare coins would be the highest grade proof version that you can afford and the highest value mint state version that you could afford.
With the past sale of an uncirculated specimen of the rare R5 Mandela 90th birthday coins in the grade of MS-69 for 2.5 million rand and the sale of proof 70’s at R275 000. These coins are internationally acknowledged as being the fastest appreciating rare coins in the history of the world. The MS-69 grew at a staggering 49.9 million percent in total or 12.4 million percent per annum and the proof 70 at 2 100% in total or 700% per annum. This is a trend that we expect to continue for many, many years ahead. We are projecting that the proof 70 Mandela R5 90th birthday coins will be selling for R450 000 at the end of the year and around R1 million rand at the end of 2015. We are projecting that the proof 69 Mandela R5 birthday coins will be selling for R65 000 at the end of this year and R120 000 at the end of 2015.
In January of 2012 the proof 70’s were selling at R125 000. By the end of March 2012 they had leapt in price to R240 000 a massive increase in value of 92%. When they sold at R275 000 this was a further rise of 14.6%. Had you been prudent enough to invest in several of the proof 70’s in January 2012 at R125 000 you would have had a return on your capital of 120%. That would have been more than double your capital in a mere 4 months. We are projecting that the proof 70’s will be selling at R450 000 rand at the end of 2014. Should that appreciation occur this will be a further appreciation of 88%. The next coins that we expect to dramatically rise in value are the proof 69’s. They are the second finest known coins and there are only 2 215 of these coins. They are currently selling at R35 000 and we have projected that they will be selling at R65 000 by the end of the year. Should that projection be correct this will translate to a 86% increase in your capital.
We strongly urge you to buy as many of the proof 70’s and proof 69’s that you can this year to add them to your investment portfolio. You may not ever get another chance to buy such rare and sought after coins at these low prices again. These coins by the mintage of only 5 000 coins are the rarest of all of the Mandela R5 coins.
