Stamps and Coins a Better Investment than Property

Rare stamps and coins are a better investment than art and luxury property, reveals a wealth management firm.

Stamps have doubled in value since 2005, according to Coutts’s index of passion investments, which includes vintage cars and modern art.

Old coins have performed even better, surging in value by 176% between 2005-14.

The bank’s Mohammed Kamal Syed says: “Passion assets maintain their appeal.”1
