IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ALL COLLECTORS OF COINS, STAMPS, MEDALS

Posted by

German Minister of Culture Monika Grütters has proposed a new legislation that, if implemented, will have enormous repercussions across all fields of collecting - not just in Germany and not just in coins.

At this initial stage we collectors need to make our voice heard and make sure that the petition will not go any further.

The minister proposes OUTLAWING PRIVATE COLLECTING by requiring provenance (history of ownership) of at least 20 years to date.

It is understandable that the petition has been proposed to tackle an influx of forgeries and the illegal extraction of archaeological items. These are problems on the rise that need to be tackled, however this is NOT a realistic approach.

Furthermore it would make private trade and collecting of German coins in many cases ILLEGAL. Such a beaurocratic and inconsiderate approach would have detrimental effects on one of the world's oldest and most honorable pursuits.

SIGN THE PETITION TODAY by clicking the link below and help protect coin collecting in the future!
