Collectors’ items: what they are and why they are so valuable

Two-euro coins, vinyl records, money from other countries, collectible cards and decks, lifelong dolls, toys from the 1960s, limited edition items and so on and so forth.  

Many people store and collect things that have sentimental value to them or because they are unique and special. I’m sure you are familiar with some of the items mentioned above. 

There are many objects that are of little value today, but in a few years’ time may be very valuable. And so it has happened with many others. There are also others that become collectibles because only a small quantity is released on the market and the person who gets it is the lucky one. 

The latter case is very common in collectible products that are delivered together with editions of newspapers or magazines, such as collectible toys, collectible figures, etcetera.  

At Atienza & Climent, as manufacturers of collectible items of this type, we would like to explain what they are and why they are so valuable for some people.
