Classic coins are the U.S. coins that we have come to know and collect that are no longer in circulation. Some of them are certainly older than others, and most of them were once used as part of daily life. There are classic coins for every collector, whether you want to build your collection on a budget or build the most valuable collection possible.
One of the most popular types of coin that is considered classic is pre-1933 U.S. gold. These gold coins have been the subject of many debates over the years, but there are plenty of great options here to add to your collection. Prior to 1933, gold coins were issued in $20, $10, $5, $4, $3, $2.50, and $1 denominations. One advantage of pre-1933 gold coins is that the larger denominations can often be found in high grades since they weren't used as much as the smaller coins.
Morgan dollars are an all-time favorite amongst collectors and are extremely popular for good reason. Some years with high mintages have created affordable Mint State Morgans, but low mintage figures and other factors have created some extremely rare and valuable coins, like the 1893-S. After the Morgan dollar, there was the Peace dollar. While Peace Dollars haven't enjoyed the same level of popularity and fanaticism as the Morgan dollar, it's highly collectable and key dates can be quite valuable. The Peace Dollar was the last 90% silver dollar intended for circulation in the U.S.
Half dollars have a lot to offer collectors. Older designs can be very valuable, and even the relatively more recent Walking Liberty half dollars have quite a following.
There are many other choices among classic coins as well. You can choose from quarters and 20 cents, dimes and half dimes, 2 cent coins, 3 cent coins, half cents, cents, and classic commemoratives in addition to nickels and colonial coins.
