In general, that's a good idea for any collectible bought for investment
purposes (IMHO). On the other hand, since coins are easier to ship than
paintings, it's significantly less likely to have an item that no one
wants to buy ... just put it up on eBay, and you're probably home free.
Investing in coins is like any other medium-risk investment: know what
you're doing, and be prepared to lose on some items.
Personally, I collect coins for enjoyment. My personal favorite is Proof
& Mint sets, items which, in general, are not good investment buys ... but
I love the look of the coins. I do have some coins I bought more for
investment purposes, but to me they are beautiful works of art anyhow,
things that I enjoy.
